The Shortest Hollywood Marriage: Rudolph Valentino and Jean Acker

In 1919, Hollywood screen legend Rudolph Valentino married actress Jean Acker in a lavish ceremony. However, their marriage was the shortest in Hollywood history, lasting only a few hours.

The couple had met on the set of the silent film, “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse,” and Valentino had proposed to Acker shortly after. The wedding was a star-studded affair, attended by some of the biggest names in Hollywood at the time.

However, shortly after the ceremony, Acker began to have second thoughts and decided to lock her new husband out of their honeymoon suite. Valentino was reportedly devastated by the sudden change of heart and the couple never reconciled.

The marriage was annulled just a few days later, making it the shortest marriage in Hollywood history. Valentino went on to marry two more times, but his marriage to Acker remains the shortest in Hollywood history.

The story of Valentino and Acker’s brief marriage has become the stuff of Hollywood legend. It serves as a reminder that even the most star-studded of Hollywood marriages can come to an abrupt end.
