Rudolph Valentino Mass Card 1926 - St. Malachy's Church

Here is the original mass card given to each attendee at the first funeral service held for Rudolph Valentino in New York on August 30, 1926.  The Catholic church St Malachy's was selected.  Often called the 'actors church' it is at 239 West 49th Street.

Very few of these cards have survived the 90 years that they were given out.
