He Said, She Said (233 person items)

" JAMES MASON "That Valentino was certainly a very splendid fellow. And his unique glamor was not entirely due to the fact that he was unhampered by banal dialogue.

The Greatest Male Sex Symbols (41 person items)

"Rudolph Valentino may now occur to film buffs as an iconic image of cinema's silent era, but once upon a time, he was the first male sex symbol. Oozing sex appeal as the 'Latin Lover', Valentino became a pin-up for millions of women who were attracted to his unique brand of ambivalent masculinity as the exotic romantic hero. He was so adored by women that several killed themselves when he died at the peak of his fandom. "
