The story opens with the super-star actor Rudolph Valentino in his coffin, dead at the age of thirty-one. As one by one the women in his life come to pay homage to "The Sheik," Valentino's rise from tea dance gigolo to screen idol unfolds in a series of extravagant flashbacks - highlighted by beautifully rendered sepia-toned recreations of his silent films. Freely mixing fact and fiction, director Russell, a man of ideas as well as baroque images, uses Valentino's life to comment on the destrucitve nature of the early Hollywood system and American code of machismo

Valentino. Original screenplay by Ken Russell and John Byrum. Additional dialogue by Mardek Martyn by Ken Russell( )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als Rudolph Valentino 1926 im Alter von 31 Jahren stirbt, verliert Hollywood einen seiner großen männlichen Stars. Während die Bosse der Traumfabrik sich anschicken, seinen Tod zu vermarkten, stürmen Tausende weiblicher Fans zu seinem Sarg. Unter ihnen sind auch einige Frauen, die den Aufstieg des legendären Stummfilmstars unmittelbar miterlebten und wissen, wie trügerisch der Mythos des angehimmelten Liebhabers die profane Wirklichkeit überstrahlt. Rudolpho Valentinos Aufstieg zum gefeierten Stummfilmstar und zum Liebling der Frauen ist die einzige dramaturgische Stringenz des Films. In subjektiven, aber sehr phantasievollen Bildern entwickelt Russell die nur teilweise biografische Lebensgeschichte eines großen Hollywood-Künstlers, zeigt seinen ausschweifenden Lebensstil, ohne sich dabei um die Fakten - die sind auch meistens ziemlich langweilig und ernüchternd - zu kümmern. Russell ging es eher um den Flair der Stummfilm-Zeit - er zeigt u.a. Dreharbeiten zu dem Klassiker "Der Scheich" -, welche er mit wunderbarem Dekor und gekonnter Fotografie (Peter Suschitzky) und mit einem glänzenden Nurejew in Szene gesetzt hat. (
