it is fair to say that something huge is being hidden by the Alberto
Valentino family. If this were not the case then doors would be wide
open, materials shared and censorship non-existent. However, the
opposite is true (see all previous posts!) It took me a good long
while to recognize the motley cast of characters prompting all those door slammings in my
face. I was once naive about that. I no longer am.
someone commented how they were amazed I had not gone insane having
to endure all I did and still must endure. A valid question. Because at every turn I recognized another awful alliance...and at every turn another
door was slammed in my face.
extremely proud of myself and Renato for discovering all we have despite such tremendous efforts to stop us. The criminals have
tried to hide their crimes, but they are not all that clever. Bits and
pieces of evidence are about because Rudolph Valentino left an
incredible paper trail on two continents.
A good detective can solve a crime with the
smallest piece of evidence and this is what I feel Renato and I have accomplished. We find bits and pieces they missed. It does not matter if those bits and pieces were small or grand none of our discoveries were insignificant.
moment it was for me when the research desk librarian asked me if S.
George Ullman ever filed an appeal in California. It never occurred
to the thieves hiding their crime that when Ullman did file his
appeal his case would consist of a huge portion of the original
stolen case file. In solving this crime, that was the smoking gun.
point I began compiling a list of all the missing/stolen records
relating to Rudolph Valentino. I have not been so diligent in keeping
the list current. But does this list not present again the obvious question... why hide if there is
nothing to hide?
Here follows the list of documents we found to be gone, gone, gone with the wind:
