Valentino in San Francisco

Valentino visited San Francisco many times.  Here are a few spots he stayed.

Rudolph Valentino outside the Fairmont Hotel in June 1926.

 

The Palace Hotel circa 1920. 

The Hotel St. Francis, a great place to dance during off hours when filming of Moran of the Lady Letty

Location shooting for part of Moran of the Lady Letty was done along the Embarcadero.  Pier 43 can be seen in the film (alas, the working Pier 43 is long gone).  Pier 28 still looks much as it did in this photo for reference to Valentino's time.

San Francisco
More to come!
