Maybelline Story brings Romance back to life.

Rudolph Valentino was every woman's Romantic Idol, in the 1920's and even more so after his untimely death in 1926.  Tom Lyle Williams, bought the Villa Valentino, around 1930 and like Valentino, loved beautiful automobiles, architecture and the exotic Hollywood stars, who represented Maybelline.
