Joan Baez - Farewell, Angelina
Rudolph Valentino (May 6, 1895 – August 23, 1926) was an Italian actor. Nicknamed "The Great Latin Lover", he was one of the first male movie sex symbols and gained attention for his rendition of the Argentine tango. Almost 40 years after his untimely death he made a cameo appearance in Dylan’s mid-sixties song “Farewell Angelina” (King Kong, little elves on the rooftops they dance Valentino-type tangos).
