Controversial British director Ken Russell’s film starring ballet-dancer-turned actor Rudolf Nureyev as Rudolf Valentino, the adored silent screen actor of the early Hollywood age. The film begins at his funeral in 1926 and, using flashbacks, backtracks to his glory-days when the former ballroom dancer used his good-looks and charm to mould a very successful career in the movies and become one of the first male screen idols.
Jennie stars as Agnes Ayres.
