Another Anniversary: Rudolph Valentino

Another anniversary, but this time mentioned late instead of in advance: 23rd August marked the anniversary of the death of silent film star Rudolph Valentino in 1926. His death is still commemorated at his tomb in Hollywood Forever Cemetery L.A. It is remarkable that his name lives on; although his death at 31 years has, no doubt, helped. Rather like Beau Brummell, he has become a legendary icon.
