The body of Rudolph Valentino arrived here Monday from the East Coast and immediately taken to the Church of the Good Shepard, Beverly Hills in a special car. Coincident with the arrival of the body a paper-covered book of 133 pages entitled “The Romantic Life of Rudolph Valentino” published by a Hollywood Concern and retailing for 25 cents made its appearance all over town. In the presence of 500 who met the body when it was removed at a secret railroad crossing the books were peddled. The studios were practically inactive during the funeral services.
