Movies - Rudolph Valentino

The female half of Modern Flapper has a problem. She is madly in love with people who are usually dead. Modern movie stars leave her cold; for her, there is nothing like a pitcher of lemonade, some popcorn, and an afternoon of Turner Classic Movies. But what really revs the Flapper's engine is a man who made movies close to a century ago- Rudolph Valentino. Yes, the Flapper is a serious Valentino fan. If the Sexy One could come back to life and show up on her door step she would probably swoon with passion and need industrial-strength smelling salts to wake her up. Thank goodness she is not the only person with a crush on a man who may have been the first modern male sex symbol; there are photos of him all over the Internet. Here's a link to a few of them.
