Check Please! or Jean Acker Cashes In


Jean Acker gleefully and for self gain, not to mention publicity for her faded career, raked Valentino's name and reputation through the mud in an sensational divorce trial in which she often committed perjury regarding her relationship and dealings with the now famous Rudolph Valentino.  She filed for divorce on January 17, 1921 and the divorce was finally granted on March 4, 1922   Here is a check issued to her that was prior to the start of the payment program in the settlement agreement.  Valentino would later borrow the full amount to get this monkey off his back, and be done with her so he could link up with Natacha Rambova.  Sadly, history would show that the Rambova alliance would fare no better.
