The death of Valentino is a terrific loss to the screen. He brought it happiness„ beauty, and art as perhaps no other has. His loss can never be replaced; there was and can be only one Valentino; a great artist and one of the finest gentlemen it has ever been my privilege to term ‘friend’.” - John Gilbert

"Women are not in love with me, but with the picture of me on the screen. I am merely the canvas on which women paint their dreams."
