The Oscar-Nominated actress portrays the mysterious mourner who visited Rudolph Valentino’s grave for several decades and left a single rose every year on the anniversary of his death
The Ode to the Classic Era of Silent Films and the World’s First Male Sex Symbol also Stars Isabella Rossellini, Franco Nero, and Director Vladislav Kozlov as Rudolph Valentino.
Hollywood, CA (December 6, 2017) – Oscar-nominated (Come Back, Little Sheba) actress Terry Moore, joins the cast of Silent Life as the mysterious Lady in Black, announced writer/director/star of the film, Vladislav Kozlov, who produced the film under his Dreamer Pictures banner. The film will be Moore’s final curtain call as an actress, and she will retire after shooting her scenes, announced Moore.
“The character of ‘The Lady in Black,’ who visits Valentino’s grave each year with a single red rose, the symbol of unspoken love, is dressed in all black not only because she is mourning the death of Rudolph Valentino, but she is mourning the whole classic Hollywood bygone era,” said Kozlov.
Silent Life is a period piece shot in historic Hollywood locations and features Franco Nero and Isabella Rossellini. The film tells the story of Rudolph Valentino, the first Hollywood superstar and male sex symbol, as he ponders the most important philosophical questions of human existence from his deathbed. In the film, Valentino sits in an imaginary empty movie theatre as he, and the audience watches his life flicker like a silent movie on the screen. After Valentino’s unexpected death in 1926, a mysterious Lady in Black continued to visit his grave on the anniversary of his death with a single red rose, her identity hidden by a black veil
In Silent Life, a group of young journalists encounter a mysterious elderly woman clad in all black, hiding her face and her secrets behind a veil, at Rudolph Valentino’s annual memorial service. She is the legendary Lady in Black, who has been coming annually to Valentino’s grave for untold decades, always bringing a single red rose. The team attempts to convince this solemn mourner to reveal her secret: was she really the last love of “The Great Lover” as the legend has it?
