This week's Trailers from Hell features director Bernard Rose discussing Ken Russell's "Valentino."  Here's the official write-up:
 

"A financial and critical flop, this notoriously inaccurate version of the rise and fall of silent screen star Rudolf Valentino is the one picture Ken Russell said he regretted making ("What idiot made this?").  He called the decision to make it his worst mistake and its costly failure impacted his career for years. Seems in retrospect that a 5 million dollar picture co-starring dancer Rudolf Nureyev (as Valentino) with former Bowery Boy Huntz Hall (as movie pioneer Jesse Lasky) would be headed for trouble, but sometimes that's the way the tinseltown cookie crumbles."
