Thanks for all the responses, what I have so far:
It does appear that Mr Valentine did change his name. We are infering this
as we now know from a local newspaper clipping that he played Tom Warren in
the 1930 version of Sunny directed by William A Seiter. Both the IMDB and
BFI index tell us that the actors name was Lawrence Gray (otherwise known
as Larry Gray). IMDB make reference to 35 film roles for a Lawrence Gray.
I also now know that Mr Valentine's first name was William.
Can anyone confirm the name change? Can any one provide any new information
based on these new details? My client is more interested in biographical
once again many thanks,
