After his premature death at 31, actor Rudolf Valentino was interred inside this Cathedral Mausoleum designed by architect Matlock Price (originally for scriptwriter June Mathis) at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. More than 70 years later, fans still bring flowers to the site. The star of "The Sheik" (1921) and "Blood and Sand" (1922), attracted 80,000 mourners when his casket was carried into the elaborate structure. Rose petals showering the crowd from a small plane. Legend has it that the "Lady in Black" visits Valentino's crypt each year on the anniversary of his death and leaves red roses.
