Shortest Hollywood marriage
Jean Acker, Rudolph Valentino
United States ()
The shortest Hollywood marriage on record was that between screen legend Rudolph Valentino and actress Jean Acker. Valentino and Acker married in 1919 but barely was the service over before the bride began to regret to have second thoughts and decided to lock her new husband out of their honeymoon suite. After knocking for 20 minutes Valentine simply went home. In divorce proceedings, Jean Acker claimed they never consummated their union, a highly likely scenario given that her famed 'Latin Lover' husband failed to get past the bedroom door.
