Please do not listen to people who, in my opinion, are crackpots. They would tell you that those who attend the Valentino Memorial celebrate his death. They air their disdain for the Valentino Memorial every single year and it fails miserably. Every year attendance has skyrocketed. Those people who attend realize that the "crackpots" are just .....woopsie!... self promoting. Yep. They spew mis-information while they at the same time pronounce only they have Valentino truth that everyone else has tried to suppress. This "truth" sooooo long suppressed... is available for the price of a book, of course! LOL!!! One elderly lady continues wailing against the Memorial. Guess what? She has a few Valentino books she's selling.
Surprised? Didn't think so.
Anyone who's attended the Valentino Memorial Service considers such people (in their opinion) as, "crackpots" The Memorial has been subjected to a lot of crackpots over its 87 years. They call it George Ullman's creation as a publicity stunt. (very not true) They claim that they, not us, "celebrate his life" By way of observation, I see on their sites they don't celebrate a single thing about Rudolph Valentino's life. They are selling books. All of them have books out on Valentino. Their thirst to draw attention from the annual Valentino Memorial to THEMSELVES gets more loud every August especially as the Memorial Service draws near. You can almost set your watch to it, they are that predictable.
I think it's safe to say that the Valentino Memorial will continue for generations to come.
