Rudolph Valentino was one of the biggest movie stars of the 1920s. In 1927, his untimely death at the age of 31 sent legions of fans into hysterics — and a few to suicide — while 100,000 people lined the streets of New York City to pay their respects. Every year on the anniversary of his death, an anonymous "Lady in Black," veiled and carrying a red rose, has visited Hollywood Forever Cemetery to mourn at his tomb. 86 years after his demise, the legend continues at the annual Valentino memorial, with guest speakers, musical tributes, and video presentations as salute and homage to the man known as "the Great Lover."
