Rudolph Valentino biography

Currently reading the new Valentino biography, Dark Lover: The Life and Death of Rudolph Valentino, by Emily W. Leider. I am about 125 pages into the book, and am enjoying it a great deal. I would recommend it highly to anyone interested in the life and times of the actor, or anyone interested in silent film. I will post further thoughts on the book once I am done reading it.

For those interested in checking out the book (and the author), Emily Leider will be giving a talk in San Francisco. Here are the details.
