Rudolph Valentino Check "MYSELF ONLY"

Here is a check for $100 that Rudolph Valentino cashed on September 21, 1925.  He had recently completed shooting the film "The Eagle" and in fact the premiere would be just two weeks away from the date of this check.  This is the type of check you would get if you went into a bank asking for a withdraw.  In those days they'd have you sign a check such as this rather than using your own personal check stock.  Sadly Rudy would only have 11 months to live.  The motto of the Valentino Memorial Service is  "We Never Forget" and this year marks the 90th anniversary of his passing.
