A Partial Listing

In The Case Files of Rudolph Valentino, I included a section in which I shared some of our sources. In the interest of disclosure, here is the listing of the archives, which is a partial one compiled last summer. Despite this, Tracy Terhune, Donna Hill, Cindy Martin, Eleanor Gribbin, David Bret, Simon Constable, et al, have done their best to portray us as writing "fan girl fiction" and being lazy people who send out a team of researchers to comb through fan magazine archives. Their false statements about our work and our integrity have been a sickening constant in our lives for many years. 

I share the following in support of our honest, hard work. 

 
The comments I do not publish await in this file (see below) and are not refused because they express a different opinion but because they are personal insults, disturbing defamation and demeaning scoldings as repetition of tired old lines they have all memorized years ago. Regarding the 644th and 655th snipes, Leider's book imo is only their "gold standard' because she pandered to the cult by leaving Rudolph Valentino as gay and/or bisexual. That was all it took. Despite the book's impressive publication it is heavily referenced to fan magazines and has many factual errors as well as huge holes in the story left unaddressed. And I did not "build" the Cue book which is a publication deemed so reliable Jeanine Villalobos referenced it "heavily' in her PhD dissertation. Baltasar Cue was a respected journalist and not some gossip columnist.

  1. If Evelyn makes money off the Rudolph Valentino books is because that the books are written beautifully and that includes research that she has done for twenty years. She has the right to be heard. Her hard work and honesty has earned her respect from people. While the envious ones continue to defame her, it only shows that they do not possess the talent to write or do hard work.Those people are annoying and boring.

  2. Very surprising why they give Jeannine Villalobos a hard time on the Baltasar Cue book when she referred it in her PhD dissertion.

    1. The letters Valentino gave to Cue for his use were extremely valuable historically. Also Cue's interviews with Pola Negri, Alberto, Robert Florey, etc., make this a solid reference.

    2. Absolutely!

  3. I still can't figure out what TRT96, Witchipoo, and various others have against Jeanine Villalobos. She had access to inside material that the exalted Leider never had. If she wrote that Cue was a primary source for her material, I think I will believe her and Cue more than a gaggle of social media scolds who like to brag about their association with Sylvia Huber, a family member who did not even know when her aunt, Maria Strada, died.

    8:48 PM - It seems very simple why these members of the VSC hold the positions they do. It's born of a willful ignorance that totally ignores new information. In fact, there is an extreme opposition to new information being shared. Witness the horrible treatment of Evelyn and Renato by the likes of Terhune, Bret, Martin, Hill, Gribbin, Constable etc. etc.. These are not people with open minds to new discoveries. They seem to have no desire to go deeper into the Valentino story. They are threatened by the hard work and exciting results of the Floris continued research because it challenges them to think in new ways.

    1. I am continually blown away how horrible these people act towards us. They are all imo lacking in any civility and grace.

    2. They do not want to change their old way of thinking, they want their own delusions.

    3. I believe that these people want appear as if they are experts. They want to be somebodies, or maybe they feel pressured to provide information. Or they want to appear to be hotshot. They want to distort the truth just in order to please some people. That is perhaps why they follow Renato and Evelyn around on this blog. Heaven knows if they can just steal one item it would make them self important.

    Hither And Thither : TRUTH! Especially in the cases of Terhune & Bret who are obsessed haters & seem to stop at nothing to discredit the fine work of Evelyn and Renato.
    The others like O'Martin, Gribbin and Hill are not much better. Constable is simply delusional.

  6. Who wants to be bothered with obsessed haters? They try to troll people who support Evelyn and try to shut them up.

  7. Also I read somewhere that every time that a new book on Rudolph Valentino comes out, there is rage from the haters. These people need help, I think. But that is no excuse for mistreating the Floris.

  8. Unfortunately, the haters do try to have some sway with the Floris work. The blog that TRT administers catches web traffic of people seeking more information about Rudy...people who may have first come upon him through Evelyn and Renato's book.
    That is a real tragedy and Terhune should be ashamed by continuing it.

    1. 11:59: Well obviously that is the goal of Terhune's bullying us. And not only should Terhune be ashamed of running that hit blog, he should be in jail imo. He has purposely deceived my web traffic for more than a decade and the extent of this makes this criminal harassment. His purpose is to lie, defame and force his followers to do the same in order to gain favor. His abetting Bret to violate the Italian verdict is also a very borderline criminal thing to do. Imo karma would mean jail for him and in the least a nice long stint of probation for impeding our right to do a fair business for 10 solid years now.

    2. I'm sorry to say that I was fooled by Terhune's blog page. I had borrowed a copy of my girlfriend's AFFAIRS VALENTINO and I wanted to learn more. I thought Terhune's blog was affiliated with the author Evelyn. What tipped me off was when someone on it started talking crap about Evelyn.
      Glad I found my way here.

    3. 12:59 Glad you did find your way here. Now you know the truth about Terhune and what he is capable of. Have A name for them and him but I am too much of a lady to write it down. You can offer your opinion here and not to cut to shreds from his Lord Terhune. Too bad Terhune cannot go to jail for what he does.

    4. Well what he has done over the past 10 years should be a crime. I will agree. People should not be able to stand outside a restaurant and tell people arriving for dinner that the food is poison when its not. This is, in essence, what he does by diverting our web traffic with outrageous defamation.

      Delete
    5. 12:50, There is nothing but crap on Terhune's blog. After reading the first sentence, anyone can tell it is not legit. Terhune encourages David Bret to share his filth. That's all you need to know about Terhune.

      Delete
  9. It is all very confusing. Terhune's blog looks official. To call it a Book Critique Page makes you think it is a serious examination of the Floris' books. Plus the #Affairs Valentino appears several times under the 'labels' as well as Evelyn's and Renato's full names

    1. Well Ann Fan, I am not sure at all why you would send me a play by play of what amounts to a horror movie starring me. I know what goes on there, and I wonder why you seem confused. It does not look official, it looks cheap. That ancient old Blogger template of the books is about 15 years yesterday. And no one has ever been fooled because the hate drips from every line. It is a first class designated hate blog. That's all folks.

      Delete
    2. There is nothing official looking about a blog that only critiques books by one author and uses a porn writer to make the comment section his own personal playpen. Terhune knows all of this, which is why he never links his "Book Critique Page" on his Facebook forum.

    3. Thank-you 5:06 for your astute comment.

    4. I believe it is called an, "Impersonation scam".

    5. To Ann Fan , makes me wonder why this "fan " keeps up writing what is happening on Affairs Valentino Critique page? As one person put it "I do not give a toss what is happening there and frankly neither do I. You seem to enjoy talking about it.

    6. Ann Fan : you are boring and mean spirited and miserable.

      Delete
    7. It must an exhausting job keeping up the lies .

    8. We all know who Ann Fan is. Epic fail on your part. Next time, try to be a bit more cagey. You suck at cloak and dagger.
