The date was 23 Aug 16, the time 1210 hours, Hollywood Forever Cemetery, was the location for the annual memorial service that was attended by quite a few fans of Rudolph Valentino, including Rudy’s great niece Ms. Sylvia Valentino-Huber and my special correspondent for this event Mr. Bryce Rubie. Once again, a special thank you to Mr. Tracy Terhune’s genius in putting together another memorable tribute.
This year was the 90th anniversary of the passing of Silent Film Star Rudolph Valentino. The featured displays depicted headlines in bold print of Rudy’s passing. So much time, has passed since our favorite actor has died. However, time continues on, with another memorial service with the message “he has not been forgotten”. The montage and the clips from the funeral of Rudolph Valentino were very moving. The featured singer, Mr. Nick Palance whose Songs of Inspiration was very inspiring. Mr. Rudy Freeman was a featured speaker who spoke about his break-out in acting. I was unfortunate to miss out this year and I appreciate Mr. Bryce Rubie attending on my behalf.
