Bebe Daniels

  1. Nita Naldi, Blood and Sand, 1922.    “Nita Naldi – who’s she?” screamed Natacha Rambova, Valentino’s overbearing, second wife. “She’s a nobody. And besides she’s   too fat –   has breasts like a cow.”   Not really.  In fact, Nitzi loved inviting interviewers to feel her firm bosom.    She made two more Valentino films and had mutual contempt for Rambova (ex-Winifred  Shaunessy).  “She always had to be the boss and I never liked what she did to Rudy.”   Bebe got him as   Monsieur   Beaucaire, 1924.   His UA pact insisted Rambova was banned from his set. To appease her, Valentino financed her directing What Price Beauty?... starring… Nitzi!   As for Blood   and Sand,   Stan Laurel’s Mud and Sand   was better.
