The Grand Event!

Tomorrow, on the anniversary of the birth of Rudolph Valentino, Valentino scholar Aurelio Miccoli will present Renato's last book in a grand event held in the Valentino Museum in Castellaneta. I am so happy Aurelio Miccoli is representing the book he worked so earnestly on with me to complete after Renato's passing.

Sharing Valuable Discoveries & Content

I am sharing the following articles which are all from the French newspaper, Comoedia and which I read in the podcasts Part 1 and Part 2 of "Rudolph Valentino & That French Incident".

They are available to anyone, and I consider these letters so valuable I want them to be a part of the Valentino record and historical legacy. 

The letter written by Jacques Hebertot (below) is included in the article by Andre Tinchant which I read in Part 1 of the podcast. Date of publication was May 31, 1924. 

This (below) is the article by J.L. Croze which includes the complete text written to him as a cablegram from Andre L. Daven. I read this in Part 2. Date of publication was May 29, 1924.

The following is the letter from Andre L. Daven which I read in Part 2. Date of publication was June 20, 1924.
