Ruth Williams, 82 a resident of Petaluma Convalescent Hospital recalls a moment in time that still brings a smile to her face today. I met Rudolph Valentino when I was merely 16 she said and that was long before he made the movie that gained him stardom “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”. He wasn’t anything like the press agents in Hollywood made him out to be. Why, he was very reserved almost shy in fact. But dance, why he could dance.
