My Memorabilia/Book Collection

This page will fill up soon….books, billheads, movie ads….. and a signed check by “R. Valentino”…(yes, in green ink) that was written at a pivotal time of his life!

Many of the books are out-of-print titles that I’ve hunted down, including a fragile signed copy of Ben Allah’s biography which was published very soon after Valentino’s death….

A check written by Rudolph Valentino to Walter M. Murphy Motors on May 11, 1921. Written in green ink, signed R. Valentino.

Received from a dealer in Switzerland in late 2020, it was mounted along with an archival portrait by Henry Waxman.
