♥ Book Title : Rudolph Valentino
☯ Full Synopsis : "In 1926 Silent Film Icon, Rudolph Valentino, died unexpectedly at the age of 31. That same year, he had finalized a bitter divorce from his wife of four years, Natacha Rambova. Valentino had been madly in love with the gorgeous and very talented designer, yet they had been unable to make their marriage work. Since their first marriage in 1922, the public had been critical of Rambova, blaming her for any mistakes in Valentino's career or life. As Valentino laid on his deathbed in New York, Rambova was in Paris. The two exchanged telegrams to the very end, with both sides believing they would soon reunite and a reconciliation had taken place. Upon hearing the news of his death, Rambova was so distraught she locked herself in her room for three days. With many estate issues to fulfill, Valentino's manager George Ullman took the reigns. To help keep Valentino's name in the spotlight, Ullman wrote a book detailing his time with the gifted actor. Ullman and Rambova had never gotten along, fighting for control of Valentino's career. Feeling she had been unfairly portrayed not only by Ullman, but also by the press, Rambova decided to write her own book. First published in the UK in 1927, "Rudy: An Intimate Portrait by His Wife," presented Rambova's side of the story, providing many amusing stories and anecdotes about her time with Valentino. Both Valentino and Rambova had been firm believers in the practice of Spiritualism. Rambova decided to utilize her beliefs for this book, adding a section titled "Revelations," consisting of things supposedly told to her by Valentino's soul, through seances. Rambova felt the need to publish these 'messages', believing these were things his soul wished to communicate with the world. However things soon got out of hand, with boisterous fans and attention seekers bombarding the legacy of Rudolph Valentino with their own claims. Rambova would remain firm in her beliefs, eventually becoming a renowned Egyptologist. After the publication of this book, she never spoke of her time with Valentino again. "Rudolph Valentino: An Intimate Portrait by his wife" is proudly reprinted by The Rudolph Valentino Society for the first time in over 80 years, under a new title, "Rudolph Valentino: A Wife's Memories of an Icon." In addition to the original text there is a new section containing biographies, filmographies, bibliographies, notes, and new forwards. This section also contains groundbreaking biographies on screenwriter and film executive June Mathis; as well as silent film vamp Nita Naldi. 70% of proceeds from this book benefit The Rudolph Valentino Society and Film Festival."Article| Natacha Rambova| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Rudolph Valentino
☯ Full Synopsis : "In 1928, searching for a career out of Hollywood, Natacha Rambova wrote a play called "All that Glitters." This play showed her hatred for Hollywood and the pain she felt as a movie star's wife (she was married to Rudolph Valentino for a few years). However, Natacha's film foray (which she was very upset over her eventual portrayal) and stage work did not live up to her expectations. She never produced or published this play. For years it was unknown whether the text existed. But here, Theodosia Tramp Publishing, is proud to present it for the first time. Whether you are a fan of Rambova, curious about what tidbits she'll divulge, or wishing to produce this script as a play or film, you will be pleased with this publication!

♥ Book Title : Day Dreams
☯ Full Synopsis : "When silent film icon Rudolph Valentino penned this book of poetry in 1923, he was waging a 'one man strike' against his studio demanding higher quality production standards for his films. While he struggled to find a solution to this employment impasse, he delved into the occult and spiritualism and wrote his Daydreams poems. Shortly after Valentino's sudden death in 1926, his ex-wife, Natacha Rambova claimed her husband was adept at receiving messages from the other side via automatic writing. She also alleged that Valentino did not write the Daydreams poems, but instead transcribed them while in a trance, channeling them from his own spirit guides and noted, deceased poets. Although these poems appear online and in other publications, they are still protected by the copyright protection of the Valentino family. In 2002, the Valentino family granted Evelyn Zumaya contractual permission to reissue the poems, in any edition of this publication and she has reasserted their copyright protection in this second edition. The mystery of the true authorship of Valentino's fascinating psychic poems remains unsolved and continues to be the subject of discussion for Valentino's many ardent admirers."Article| Rudolph Valentino| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The True Rudolph Valentino
☯ Full Synopsis : "In the months before silent film icon Rudolph Valentino's death, he began a collaboration with Spanish journalist, Baltasar Fernández Cué. That collaboration was this book. Valentino lamented the glut of fictionalization about his life story and asked Cué to assist him in writing his true autobiography. During the spring of 1926, Baltasar Fernández Cué became a familiar member of Valentino's entourage as he was granted extraordinary access to the star's private life and professional activities. He lunched in Valentino's United Artists' bungalow and visited the location filming of The Son of the Sheik. Cué was a frequent guest in Valentino's home in Los Angeles, Falcon Lair and befriended Valentino's last love interest, Pola Negri and his only brother, Alberto Guglielmi Valentino. Before Valentino left on his fateful trip to New York City, he gave Cué various personal letters and documents for reference and assured him he would return within three weeks to write his autobiography. Valentino would die soon after in New York City, leaving Cué determined to fulfill his great friend's wish. With the assistance of Pola Negri and Valentino's friend Douglas Gerrard and with the endorsement of Alberto Guglielmi Valentino, Cué wrote The True Rudolph Valentino. With his main source no longer available, Cué would construct the book from his eye-witness accounts and his experience with Valentino and his inner circle. Lamentably, he would rely on a few of the studio-generated myths Valentino hoped to dispel. Cué published his work in the Spanish language fan magazine Cine-Mundial as a ten installment series, from May 1927 to February of 1928. Cué recounts detailed scenarios of Valentino's daily, professional and private life and includes correspondence between Valentino and Natacha Rambova and Douglas Gerrard. He grants fresh insight into these fascinating screen personalities and the tumultuous time prior to Valentino's death. Renato Floris' translation presents this historically valuable book for the first time to an English-speaking audience. Floris conducted a meticulous research of Cué's quizzical phraseology and worked with the assistance and analysis of many generous individuals in England, Argentina, Spain, Chile, Italy and the US. The True Rudolph Valentino is a full-color publication which includes reproductions of the original Cine-Mundial installment illustrations."Article| Baltasar Fernández Cué| Statement ..."
