If it weren't for Rudy
14 March 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Married Virgin is worth seeing only for the presence of screen legend Rudolph Valentino in his salad days before stardom. Here he plays a villain, something of what he was in real life, a no account gigolo who gives himself a title and the airs that go with it. Rudy's the boy toy of Kathleen Kirkham second and trophy wife of Edward Jobson who Rudy is blackmailing.

Rudy's blackmail price; Jobson's daughter in wedlock Vera Sisson a rather non-descript young beauty with no personality whose heart belongs with earnest and dull Frank Newburg. Honestly I can't believe she wouldn't have gone whole hog for Rudy next to the drip Newburg was.

She does marry Rudy, but she won't give in to him. Hence the title The Married Virgin. Oh you poor child.

Valentino's presence next to these other nondescripts stands out so glaringly it's frightening. Although he might have been stuck in these exotic villain roles his whole life had his career not taken the turn it did.

The film is eminently forgettable other than for Rudolph Valentino.
