About this event

Tonight’s discussion is on “Mourning Rudolph Valentino”, who died 95 years ago. Rudolph Valentino was many things to his family, friends, and fans a talented man gone to soon or a troubled soul whose only wish was to love and be loved. But whatever the reasons are this tragic event forever changed Hollywood then and now.

On 23 Aug 1926, Silent Film Star Rudolph Valentino died from complications from recent surgeries in a hospital in New York City. Once a public news announcement was made there was an outpouring of grief. His loyal friends and fans have mourned his loss ever since.

There were national newspaper headlines of people who committed suicide because they felt Valentino’s loss personally and felt why be a part of a frivolous society where his light no longer shines but in the hearts of his fans who felt they knew him best.

In this presentation we will delve into why Rudolph Valentino’s fans felt so deeply for him, events leading up to his death, and fans of today and yesterday.
