Rudolf Valentino (May 6, 1895 - August 23, 1926) was an Italian, early twentieth century silent movie star and sex symbol. Born in Castellaneta, Italy as Rodolfo Alfonso Raffaello Pierre Filibert Guglielmi di Valentina D'Antonguolla, he came to the United States in 1913. He began appearing as a dancer in films soon after arriving and soon began getting more significant roles.

Valentino's movie The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is the sixth highest grossing silent movie, earning around $4 million dollars.[1]

Valentino became ill with appendicitis and perforated ulcers on June 15, 1926 in New York City. Doctors performed surgery to repair the damage but he developed peritonitis and died at the age of 31 on August 23. Tens of thousands lined the streets to say goodbye to famous "Latin Lover" at his funeral in New York.
