This Ghost Gets Around!

Chattanooga Times Free Press - Parade - - PICKS -

Hol­ly­wood’s most ac­tive ghost would have to be that of Rudolph

Valentino, the silent-wlm le­gend who died in 1926 at the age of 31 (from peri­toni­tis and surgery com­pli­ca­tions). Even though he was a bona wde su­per­star in his short life­time, he be­came a le­gend af­ter his un­timely death, and it’s es­ti­mated that far more peo­ple have seen his ghost than saw his movies!

His spec­tral pres­ence is one of the most com­monly sighted ap­pari­tions in Hol­ly­wood and has been re­ported in more than a dozen lo­ca­tions. Be­fore they were de­mol­ished, both his for­mer L.A. homes were com­mon places for Valentino ghost spot­ting. He con­tin­ues to make ap­pear­ances in the cos­tume depart­ment of Para­mount Pic­tures (which is across the street from the Hol­ly­wood For­ever Ceme­tery, where his body was laid to rest), in L.A. ho­tels and far­ther up the coast, where the Ital­ian­born ac­tor liked to go to re­lax.
