Gold Cloth Owned by Star Sells for $2,965 After Spirited Bidding Los Angeles, Dec. 14, UP).- Spirited bidding by hundreds of persons who thronged the hall of arts today seeking possession of personal effects of the late film-star, Rudolph Valentino, was in sharp contrast to the lack of enthusiasm displayed last week when the two estates of the screen lover were put up for auction sale. A golden cloth cassimere shawl sold for $2,966, considerably more than IU original cost; $2,200 worth of stock in the Hollywood Music Box Revue brought $500; an Italian drawer chest, $810, and an Italian piano, $2,100. But three motion picture players wore recognized in the crowd – Eleanor Boardman, Raymond Griffith, and Adolph Menjou. Menjou bid in a Goethe cabinet for $390. ■Pola Negri was not present, nor did she, buy anything far as could be determined, have a representative at the sale.
