...the lilt of her proud grace..."

A sonnet written by Doris Kenyon in tribute to Rudolph Valentino's great love and queen, Natacha Rambova. Did Natacha know when she fell in love with Valentino and married him that her own career in Hollywood would be destroyed? Did she know she would be the recipient of a world of abusive accusations? Could she have known that this abuse would continue on for decades?

For those who find their Valentino more lovable as a victim, I guess she is the perfect foil. I never have seen Valentino as anyone's victim and find the Natacha bashing sexist and offensive.
