1937 Flowers From the Grave of Rudolph Valentino

Here is a vintage handwritten note attached with pressed flowers.  The note reads:

"April 4 - 1937 - In California -

The grave of Rodolfo Valentino, Hollywood Cemetery.  I picked these flowers from his grave, while next to his was Barbara La Marr - actress -"

Then, as now, the faithful still come to lay flowers and pay their respects at the grave of Rudolph Valentino.

Every year the annual Valentino Memorial Service is held to honor his life and legacy.
The Valentino Memorial Service is always held on the date of his passing; August 23rd and the service starts at the exact time of day he died, which was NYC 12:10pm

This year the Valentino Memorial will fall on a Tuesday, August 23, 2016  This year marks the 90th anniversary of his passing.

The motto of the Valentino Memorial is "We Never Forget"
