Death of Rudolph Valentino, the "Latin Lover"...
Item # 665649
August 24, 1926
NEW YORK AMERICAN, Aug. 24, 1926
* Rudolph Valentino death
* Latin Lover - The Sheik
* FRONT LEAF ONLY ***
The front page has a nice headline: "WORLD MOURNS VALENTINO" with subheads and large photo of the famed actor.
Valentino was an early pop icon, a sex symbol of the 1920s, & was known as the "Latin Lover" or simply as "Valentino". His death caused mass hysteria among his female fans and further propelled him into iconic status.
This is the front leaf only (pages 1 & 2 only), 5 binding holes at the spine/1st column, light toning and some chipping at the margins, nice for display as such.
