The "Remodeled Nose"

The photo of Alberto Valentino (see below) was originally watermarked heavily by historic images archive. It is no longer in their catalog. The caption on the back of the photograph explains this is Alberto with his "remodeled nose". I can think of no other sibling of a deceased celebrity who went as far as surgery to exploit the situation. But perhaps this is a more common occurrence than I know. I do not own the rights to this image and put my watermark on it only so it does not appear on one of those Facebook groups in five minutes. 

Lately Renato and I have been piecing more together from Alberto's early days and perhaps he had a reason to exact some retribution from his brother Rudolph.
