These séance communications from Rudolph Valentino
were recorded between 1962 and 1970.
Leslie Flint was such a fan of the Hollywood icon, who died in 1926,
that he created the Rudolph Valentino Memorial Guild
and kept the largest collection of Valentino memorabilia in the UK.
Flint is known to have rescued the only film reel in existence
of Valentino's original 1922 costume drama 'The Young Rajah'
- which has recently been restored.
Present during the following recordings were
Leslie Flint and Gwen Vaughan.

Flint's spirit helper Mickey speaks on most of the recordings initially, until 'Rudy' speaks for himself...
"At the request of Rudolph Valentino, a series of Direct Voice séances were started in 1962.
These séances have enabled him to provide the following philosophy, comments upon items of topical interest at the time of the séance, and other matters which will benefit mankind in his search for wisdom, peace and happiness.
The sincere wish of Rudolph Valentino is to give the listener a better understanding of the purpose of life. From that realisation, man will gain strength to overcome the many vicissitudes and tribulations which beset him.
Personal references to people have been avoided except in exceptional circumstances, where to do so would distort the context of the subject discussed."
