Rudolph Valentino and his wife 1923

Rudolph Valentino and his wife 1923

Rudolph Valentino, (version américanisée et raccourcie de son nom complet Rodolfo Alfonso Raffaello Piero Filiberto Guglielmi di Valentina d'Antoguolla), est un acteur italien naturalisé américain, né le 6 mai 1895 à Castellaneta, dans la province de Tarente (Pouilles, Italie), mort le 23 août 1926 à New York (États-Unis).

Rodolfo Alfonso Raffaello Pierre Filibert Guglielmi di Valentina d'Antonguella, professionally known as Rudolph Valentino (1895-1926), was an Italian-born American actor who starred in several well-known silent films including The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, The Sheik, Blood and Sand, The Eagle, and The Son of the Sheik. An early pop icon, a sex symbol of the 1920s, he was known as the "Latin lover" or simply as "Valentino." He had applied for American citizenship shortly before his death, which occurred at age 31, causing mass hysteria among his female fans and further propelling him into iconic status.
