Alberto Valentino - Beloved Brother, Beloved Father, Beloved Husband

No one suffered more after the untimely death of Rudolph Valentino than Alberto Valentino his beloved brother.  They were very close and Rudy had sent him to Paris to set up a distribution hub for Rudolph Valentino Productions when he received the wire that Rudy had fallen ill. Rudy's passing changed forever Alberto and his family's whole life. For them nothing would be the same.  The below photo is an original signed Abbe photo of both Alberto and Rudy in happier days visiting the Hudnut Paris home circa 1924.  I purchased this photo from the highly esteemed Valentino collector William Self, he himself a personal friend to Alberto and Alberto's son Jean.
