On August 23rd, 1926, silent film star Rudolph Valentino died unexpectedly at thirty-one-years of age. His sudden death inspired mass hysteria among his fans. His grieving fans were not the only ones to mourn. His business manager and close friend, George Ullman, was appointed executor of Valentino's estate and faced the daunting task of settling the movie star's complex postmortem affairs. In this role, Ullman would find himself a key character in a byzantine tale of betrayal and subterfuge involving moguls, Valentino's relatives and sinister collectors. Affairs Valentino is not only the story of George Ullman's affiliation with Valentino, but the revised, documented life story of Rudolph Valentino. Affairs Valentino is an expose of the dross written about Valentino, as well as the shady dealings and alliances of collectors and myth mongers. As a result of her discoveries of previously unpublished documents and Ullman's lost personal memoir, Ms. Zumaya challenges the currently held studio-generated version of Rudolph Valentino's personal and professional life. This full color "Special Edition" includes a new Postscript by Ms. Zumaya in which she reveals her latest research, as well as seventy new images including photographs and newly-discovered documents."

In 1928, searching for a career out of Hollywood, Natacha Rambova wrote a play called "All that Glitters." This play showed her hatred for Hollywood and the pain she felt as a movie star's wife (she was married to Rudolph Valentino for a few years). However, Natacha's film foray (which she was very upset over her eventual portrayal) and stage work did not live up to her expectations. She never produced or published this play. For years it was unknown whether the text existed. But here, Theodosia Tramp Publishing, is proud to present it for the first time. Whether you are a fan of Rambova, curious about what tidbits she'll divulge, or wishing to produce this script as a play or film, you will be pleased with this publication! Set in the Lavish 1920s, 20 something Henry dreams of living a lavish life with his wife Alice. One night working at a movie theatre, Henry is spotted by a group of film stars who declare he 'has it' and he should come in for a film test. He does and promptly rises to stardom. While Henry enjoys the good life, his wife is left to suffer and clean up his messes. Henry's arrogance soon overtakes his career. The good times are over? Or are they?

In a career spanning barely seven years and just seven major films, Rudolph Valentino's name became synonymous with Latin passion. When his image flickered onto the screen, fans of both sexes swooned. In this play one sees the real Valentino. Here was a man who seemed to enjoy being dominated by his rapacious lesbian wives~a man blatantly extroverted, yet who was naively unaware that the manager he trusted implicitely had but a single goal, to manipulate him and take charge of his fortune for his own aims. And finally there is the warm, sensitive, charismatic, happy-go-lucky Rudy, a man with a biting, off-beat sense of humour, who when in the company of his male friends and lovers, could let himself go and truly be himself. David Bret is one of Britain's leading showbusiness biographers. He has published two biographies of 'The World's Greatest Lover': 'Valentino, A Dream of Desire'(1998) and 'Rudolph Valentino: Lovers, Friends & Foes'(2013). WARNING: this play contains strong language.

Few of silent film heartthrob Rudolph Valentino’s adoring fans knew that he got his start by trying to escape a dirty secret. The lurid tale began in 1912 when notorious playboy Jack de Saulles made headlines by marrying the beautiful young heiress Blanca Errázuriz. After the birth of their son, though, Jack was chasing every chorus girl on Broadway. By 1916, Blanca wanted a divorce and discovered that one of her husband’s mistresses was the dance partner of Rodolfo Guglielmi, a professional tango dancer. Blanca cultivated the young performer, and the ambitious Italian gave evidence on her behalf in divorce court. Furious, de Saulles had Guglielmi arrested on trumped-up vice charges, tarnishing the dancer’s reputation. Then, one sweltering August night when it looked like de Saulles wasn’t going to share custody of their son, Blanca shot him dead. Her family hired the best defense lawyer, who savaged de Saulles’s reputation and painted Blanca as a saint. During the “most sensational trial of the decade,” millions devoured the details of how the high-society marriage had unraveled. Guglielmi, who had already fled to California to avoid poisonous publicity, changed his name to Rudolph Valentino and became Hollywood history.

At publication date, a free ebook version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press's Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. In the post–World War I American climate of isolationism, nativism, democratic expansion of civic rights, and consumerism, Italian-born star Rodolfo Valentino and Italy’s dictator Benito Mussolini became surprising paragons of authoritarian male power and mass appeal. Drawing on extensive archival research in the United States and Italy, Giorgio Bertellini’s work shows how their popularity, both political and erotic, largely depended on the efforts of public opinion managers, including publicists, journalists, and even ambassadors. Beyond the democratic celebrations of the Jazz Age, the promotion of their charismatic masculinity through spectacle and press coverage inaugurated the now-familiar convergence of popular celebrity and political authority. This is the first volume in the new Cinema Cultures in Contact series, coedited by Giorgio Bertellini, Richard Abel, and Matthew Solomon.

David Bret committed the ‘carnal sin’ of writing 'Valentino: A Dream Of Desire'wherein he stated the actor had been gay. The book remained in the best-sellers for 15 years. Championed by film director, Ken Russell, he lectured on Valentino’s sexuality as part of Chicago’s Humanities Festival. Radio, television and film appearances followed—as did a blistering smear-campaign against him. All because of Rudy's willy! None of these attacks occurred in the press, but on the Internet within which there is little control. Many are illiterate and unintentionally hilarious; some are homophobic and downright nasty, penned by supporters of rival authors. Far from being detrimental to sales they have an opposite effect. Not one word has been changed, there has been no formatting, and if locations are there it is because these reviewers posted them there! And to balance the equation, included are few nice reviews from the ‘unbiased populace’...the redeemers...and some erotic Rudy pictures! WARNING: Adult content!

WINNER OF THE TIMES BIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR AT THE BRITISH SPORTS BOOK AWARDS In the 1930s, as the world hurtled towards terrible global conflict, speed was all the rage. It was described by Aldous Huxley as 'the one genuinely modern pleasure', and one of the fastest and most thrilling ways to attain it was through the new sport of bobsledding. Exotic, exciting and above all dangerous, it was by far the most popular event at the Lake Placid Winter Olympics. It required an abundance of skill and bravery. And the four men who triumphed at those Games lived the most extraordinary lives. Billy Fiske was an infamous daredevil, blessed with a natural talent for driving. He would later become the first American airman to die in the war - flying for the RAF. Clifford Gray was a notorious playboy and a player on both Broadway and Hollywood. Or was he? His identity was a mystery for decades. Jay O'Brien was a gambler and a rogue who, according to one ex-wife, forced women to marry him at gunpoint. And Eddie Eagan, a heavyweight boxer and brilliant lawyer, remains the only man to win gold at both the Summer and Winter Olympics. This is their story, of loose living, risk-taking and hell-raising in an age of decadence, and of their race against the odds to become the fastest men on ice. We will never see their like again. Especially after the world did descend into that second, terrible global conflict.

In Queer Timing, Susan Potter offers a counter-history that reorients accepted views of lesbian representation and spectatorship in early cinema. Potter sees the emergence of lesbian figures as only the most visible but belated outcome of multiple sexuality effects. Early cinema reconfigured older erotic modalities, articulated new--though incoherent--sexual categories, and generated novel forms of queer feeling and affiliation. Potter draws on queer theory, silent film historiography, feminist film analysis, and archival research to provide an original and innovative analysis. Taking a conceptually oriented approach, she articulates the processes of filmic representation and spectatorship that reshaped, marginalized, or suppressed women's same-sex desires and identities. As she pursues a sense of "timing," Potter stages scenes of the erotic and intellectual encounters shared by historical spectators, on-screen figures, and present day scholars. The result is a daring revision of feminist and queer perspectives that foregrounds the centrality of women's same-sex desire to cinematic discourses of both homo- and heterosexuality.
