Original 1926 photograph of the coffin of Rudolph Valentino as it was paraded through the streets of Broadway to the church for services. This was one of the first famous Hollywood deaths of a superstar and the events of it captivated the nation. One fan even committed suicide rather than live in a world without Valentino! With the casket covered in flowers, thousands gather along the streets of Beverly Hills to pay their final regards. Date stamped on the back from the International News and with a full paper caption as well making this a rare vintage original!
