Arturo De Cortdova (1907-1973)

  1. Anthony Dexter, Valentino, 1950.   The second of Dexter’s  25 screen roles (go on, name one) is his most famous film.  He was a real clone of the silent movie icon.  (Certainly more so than Russian ballet king, Rudolf Nureyev, in Ken Russell’s 1976 biopic). “Incredible!” declared George Melford who directed Valentinio as The Sheikin 1921. “The same eyes, ears, mouth - the same grace in dancing.” Dexter, a Nebraska farm boy, won Rudy - aka Rodolfo Alfonso Raffaello Pierre Filibert Guglielmi di Valentina d’Antonguolla - from, supposedly, 75,000 contestants, and  400 screen tests - beating such pretty-boy stars as de Cordóva, John Derek, Jon Hall, Fernando Lamas, Guy Madison, Ricardo Montalban, Guy Williams.
