DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY 2011
Actor John Gilbert was right-up-there with Rudolph Valentino as an American heart throb when he made this motion picture called The Cossacks in 1928. His very young co-star Renee Adoree was absolutely adored as the sex kitten of her era. Renee died 1933 while in her early 30s of tuberculosis in a Tujunga hospital.
