Valentino As I Knew Him

128 pages2 hours


Rudolph Valentino (1895-1926) was an early pop icon and a sex symbol of the 1920s, having starred in several well-known silent films including The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, The Sheik, Blood and Sand, The Eagle, and The Son of the Sheik, and he became known as the “Latin lover” or simply “Valentino.” His sudden death at just 31 years of age unleashed mass hysteria among his female fans and further propelled him into iconic status.

This biography of the famous Italian actor, which was originally published in 1926, not long after his untimely death, was written by his business manager and closest friend, George Ullman, providing with the reader with a unique insight into the icon’s life.
