As a new book by David Bret is published about "The World's Greatest Lover"
Read what they said about David Bret's first biography of Rudolph Valentino, generally regarded as the definitive study of the actor.
Valentino was the typical Hollywood martyr. He loved only men, married two rapacious lesbians to curb the rumours, was treated like dirt by the studio chiefs, his manager was an embezzler, his brother a shyster who used the Valentino name for personal gain and failed majestically.
The fans and the men in his life loved him, and that's all that mattered.
