There is an interesting/entertaining website called "Who's Dated Who?" (Their spelling error, not mine) Anyways, it has different celebrities listed and it lists who they have been romantically linked to...whether it was marriage, a relationship, or just a casual encounter. It may not be 100% accurate, but some of the pairings on here are quite interesting, so I just wanted to share some of the ones that I saw for the silent ladies and gentlemen I have talked about on my blog so far. I just wanted to look at the ones they had had relationships with...not marriages.
|John Gilbert and Greta Garbo|
John Gilbert ~ Anna May Wong, Carole Lombard, Laurette Taylor, Renee Adoree, Barbara La Marr, Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, and Lupe Velez (whew!) The only one I have heard of out of this roster of women is Lupe, the others are just speculation. I know Norma and Renee were in movies with him, but that doesn't mean they were involved, so who knows.
|Adolph Menjou and Louise Brooks|
Louise Brooks ~ Buster Keaton, Humphrey Bogart, and W.C. Fields. Ummm...I am pretty sure Buster and her never happened, I would have read about it by now. And W.C. Fields?! Really?!
|Rudolph Valentino and Pola Negri|
Pola Negri ~ Billy Haines, Johnny Carson, Milton Berle, and Howard Hughes. Well, first off...Billy Haines was gay, so not so much.
|Rex Bell and Clara Bow|
Clara Bow ~ You can really tell how accurate the info is on the site going by Clara's profile. According to the site, she was married to Howard Hughes in 1927.
|Jack Dougherty and Barbara La Marr|
Barbara La Marr~ Charlie Chaplin and Howard Hughes. Apparently she had a relationship with Hughes about 20 years after she died...interesting...
|Alla Nazimova and Rudolph Valentino|
Alla Nazimova ~ Mildred Harris...in fact, Alla may have been involved with Mildred while she was still married to Charlie Chaplin.
Rudolph Valentino ~ Gloria Swanson and Nita Naldi. I am gonna say no to both...they were just co-stars.
