So, today, just 24 hours after the 92nd anniversary of his demise, I begin this modest Blog about Rudolph Valentino. Quietly. Without fuss. But with the intention of it being, first a sort of stop-off point, and then, steadily, post by post, a useful and informative resource for anyone who, like me, is genuinely fascinated by one of the most fascinating of all the fascinating Silent Era personalities. (Let’s face it there were a few.) His Fame Still Lives will be a monthly exercise, a post every four weeks, delving into a performance, or the making of one of his many films, a photograph, a person he knew, or a place he went, or something he owned. Along the way it will be a space to share my thoughts, my past research, my likes and dislikes, my experiences generally and my Rudy-related travels. Thank you for reading and see you in September!

I've been interested in Valentino since childhood, when my maternal grandmother, a lifelong fan, told me all about him. To know and appreciate him fully I've travelled to many of the major sites - his birthplace, Taranto, Martina Franca, Perugia, Nervi, Paris, New York, L. A., S. F. and elsewhere - and have documented those trips. The purpose of this modest Blog is to share that knowledge and any new finds I stumble on. Copyright S. T. Constable Some Rights Reserved.
