24 Jun 1973- Valentino not Dolls for this former child star

The memories for a former silent film movie child star are strong and one in particular is Rudolph Valentino was a frequent dinner guest.  The uncle of Thelma Daniels was atage actor and when he got into movies he would take a six year old Thelma along for dancing and singing lessons.  She started out in small minor rolls and grew from there. A semi-regular in the “Our Gang” reel comedies she played the snooty rich girl.  Also, she starred in several Marx Brothers movies where she played the blonde that Harpo would always chase. Rudy would always come over to her uncles around dinner time on the pretense of teaching her to dance. He was very continental and charming to a little girl who idolized him.  When he died it was a sad moment that I have never forgotten.
