Day Dreams

Rudolph VALENTINO (1895 - 1926)

Published in 1923, Day Dreams is a collection of poems written by Hollywood screen icon Rudolph Valentino. Authored during Valentino’s court-imposed exile from the film industry, where a protracted legal battle with Famous Players-Lasky prevented him from acting, this collection channels much of the actor’s fear, frustration, desire, and his all-encompassing need for escapism. In his own words, this collection helped Valentino "forget the tediousness of worldly strife and the boredom of jurisprudence's pedantic etiquette." This fascinating piece of Hollywood ephemera gives us a snapshot of the famed "Latin Lover" at his most mediative and romantic. (ChuckW)
