Eddie’s Collection of Junk: The Movies and Music!

February 6, 2014

Eddie uses the saying “I was Shiekless” in her comments in the last post about the Junior Prom.  We have been pondering the meaning of this comment.  I wonder if it has something to to with this man.

Eddie was very fond of Rudolf Valentino.  Here is his head shot compliments of the Liberty Theatre in Spokane.  He did a movie called “The Shiek.”

If you go here or view his silent movies be prepared to be SHOCKED! (Just kidding!)

He was considered quite racy back in the early 1920-1930’s.  He died tragically and too soon.  It would have been interesting to see if he could have made the transition from silent movies to talkies?   http://www.biography.com/people/rudolph-valentino-9514591    My mother and I watched this movie on TV together years ago.  She would have been 10 years old when it came out.

Eddie also loved classical music – try this link.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernestine_Schumann-Heink  She kept this newspaper photo of this opera singer who apparently visited the area.
