Happy 116th Birthday Rudolph Valentino!

Today is the 116th anniversary of Rudolph Valentino's birth. It has been 85 years since he passed away. It is just amazing to me how many people are still huge fans and simply adore him today. I suppose we all keep his legacy going with sites such as this and fans/collectors such as yourselves! I thought I would post a combination of candid and studio photos to commemorate his birthday. At the very least watch a Valentino movie on TCM today, Ana recommends The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it is a wonderful version that is not available on DVD, and I totally agree with that. Furthermore, have an Italian dinner and maybe a glass of wine or 5 today. Happy Birthday Rudy!


  1. Great post on Rudy!

    A lot of people are remembering him on twitter too which is simply awesome for a man that has been deceased for 85 years.

    I hope somewhere in Heaven he would be pleased as punch of the admiration still.

  2. It is truly amazing how beloved he is still, with legions of new fans in every generation since his passing. No other celebrity even comes close to the devotion he inspires.
    Cheers to dear Rudy!
