Leider traces the extraordinary journey by which a nobody named Rodolfo Guglielmi became a somebody named Rudolph Valentino - a silver screen legend who forever changed America's idea of the "leading man". Valentino wasn't just a star, he was a phenomenon, adored by women, despised by men. On-screen, he offered American women a dangerous sexuality unlike anything on offer from their husbands or lovers; in private, his first wife - a lesbian - refused to consummate their marriage. Gossip and rumour about his early life as a taxi-dancer haunted him, until his untimely death cut short a career that lasted only five years. This book now attempts to rehabilitate Valentino's reputation, both as a man and as an actor.Hide synopsis

When it comes to mysterious silent star bigraphies it can be a hard task. However Emily Leider has finally figured out how to cleverly make a story of fact read like a book of fiction. You can tell she throughly researched Rudy's life, right down to his cirth name which so many people have misrepresented ...
More than 80 years after his death, the name of Rudolph Valentino is still instantly recognizable to most movie fans--even those who have never seen one of his films.
