87 years ago today, Rudolph Valentino passed away in a New York hospital. He was in New York promoting his latest film, The Son of the Sheik. This film would go on to be a great success, quite possibly due to the fact that it was his last film. Valentino was hospitalized while in New York, many speculated it was a promotional ploy to draw attention to Valentino and his new film. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Valentino passed away at 12:10 on the afternoon of the 23rd at the age of 31. The outcry from fellow actors and especially fans would spread worldwide. Remember Valentino today, I will leave you with a one of his poems from Daydreams: "Powerless" When I see a look of sadness, In the eyes of You, Thoughts of grief akin to madness Surge my being through. Am I then so weak and helpless, That I can not send Even shadowings of sorrows To their deserved end.
