    Paul Ivano was the most interesting of Rudy’s close circle of friends. He left behind a small typed manuscript of different recollections of his time with Valentino. (unpublished) Not to mention the wonderful candid photos he took of Rudy.

    • It would of been great to read what he wrote..do you know what happened to his photos of Rudy? Thank you Tracy for sharing your knowledge of Paul Ivano.
