Rudolph Valentino By Simon Blumenthal And Peter Hepple: The Stage

My very good friend, Simon Blumenthal (1907-2005) actually saw Rudolph Valentino and André Daven leaving Le Boeuf-sur-le-Toit, in Paris. As he says here, linking arms. Simon, as a rookie reporter, was also part of the welcoming committee when Valentino visited Britain for the second time. Simon recalled that such was Valentino's potency, he could send shivers down a straight man's spine just by shaking his hand ~ and that the only other time this happened to him was when he met Rock Hudson.
