Theda & Charles

The photo below has some tiny bit of Valentino history to it I find amusing. Theda Bara and her husband Charles Brabin in 1932...they lived across the street from George Ullman. Theda would divine Bunny Ullman's name... "Brenda". Bob Ullman told me that neither he or his brother Dan ever smoked because of something Charles Brabin showed them. He took out a white handkerchief and blew cigarette smoke through it . They were duly horrified.

Brabin had an interesting career history in Hollywood.

What a fascinating couple I think.
