The Estate of Rudolph Valentino
< Back to Publications
A 1:1 reprint of the auction catalogue that was published four months after the 1926 death of Rudolph Valentino, one of cinema’s earliest stars. Featuring an introduction by George Ullman and illustrated with photographs of the actor’s most intimate possessions, the catalogue offers a glimpse into the private world of a figure whose death rocked America. Including lots as disparate as the actor’s pets, automobiles, art collection, and toiletries, the catalogue presages both the public's fascination with celebrity memorabilia and fandom itself.
