From Renato:

It is useless for me to extend my opinions or give a grade to Eleanor Gribbin and Mary O'Bannon because imo they could only earn an A for arrogance, immodesty, presumption and above all, ignorance.

I say this and I confirm it for the simple reason that I am so proud of the value of my and Evelyn's research. Research which gave a good sweep of the broom to certain myths passed off as history. I believe myths detract from historical reality and supporting them shows a lack of intelligence, of independent judgment and intellectual honesty.

Here and now for Eleanor Gribbin and Mary O'Bannon, who pretended in their group to not know of the existence of or content of Michael Morris' last book, Beyond Valentino, I present and recollect one of their groups “discoveries”.

Within the lines of their Mad About the Boy, appeared Simon Constable, who was posting the photos of pages directly from Astral Affairs Rambova and telling members of that group he discovered Cassio and Natacha's lost movie, Who Am I? These were all Evelyn's discoveries. Simon Constable was taking credit for Evelyn's discovery of Cassio with Eleanor Gribbin's sanction as she administrated the group. He bragged about Evelyn's discovery as if it was his and without giving her any credit.

The only position to assume in the face of such people who believe they are scholars can only be described, by one word from the philosophers of the cynical school in ancient Greece:

They would say, ἐποχή or "epochē", which means "suspension of judgment” because these so-calleds have nothing to judge because they have nothing substantial to say or teach, so ἐποχή!

Take a look inside Beyond Valentino Ms. Gribbin and Ms. O'Martin so maybe you can get a better grade in nicer topics.

  1. There are two words for the deeds of those malefactors who take credit for another author's work: plagiarism and theft. Stealing another's work is cause for dismissal at any reputable newspaper, magazine, publishing house, as well as inside the halls of academia. Constable's filching of Ms. Zumaya's discovery of Cassio automatically disqualifies him as any kind of serious author, if there is anyone who actually thought of him that way (besides himself). This also applies to those Facebook Artful Dodgers, who post photos from Ms. Zumaya's books, but fail to give her credit by claiming they unearthed the photo on "the internet." There is nothing wrong with sharing Valentino material - that's how it should be - but credit should always be given to the original author. I've never seen Ms. Zumaya claim credit for another author's work. If she uses material from another author's writing, she cites it.

    1. No matter how self-righteous and justified they feel posting my images and work as their discoveries, it is the height of hypocrisy. They block us, post banners commanding their followers never mention my name and trash our fine books by calling me insane, the books fiction and worse. So if they believed that why lift my discoveries and take credit for them? And why censor the discoveries we make if they do not fit that false narrative so fiercely enforced by Terhune?

  3. Why don't these so called experts show their proof instead of stealing from others who do a lot of work and research.
