This post just became relevant again. Happy to bring some good news in 2012. This could mean more posts or less, we’ll see.

    Another? Ah! The future of tango is bright! All best wishes.

    I just realised I didn’t add a comment to your very interesting point that the contempt for Valentino in the 1980s might well have been for Nureyev as Valentino, rather than for Valentino himself. Indeed, a twisted tale. There was, it seems, a Latin American release of Russell’s film, so you might well be right there, unless Argentine TV showed old films, but I guess that’s possible too. These days, or course, YouTube means that Valentino’s version is readily available.

    Thanks a lot!

    And thanks for the Valentino comment, I appreciate having a fellow film and tango geek. I’m not sure the Paris tango scenes of Valentino are on YouTube, though.
