Some Falcon Lair Household Records

Below I post a few pages from the court ordered audit of Rudolph Valentino's closest friend and trusted business manager, George Ullman's executor's books. These records were part of the Falcon Lair household ledgers called "The Gray Books"; where all household transactions were recorded. 

When I discovered the court records in 2003, I found these accounts a fascinating glimpse into Rudolph Valentino's life during his last months at Falcon Lair. And I add that S. George Ullman was exonerated on all charges brought against him by Valentino's brother Alberto, his books found to be in perfect order and the appeals court judge praised his work as Valentino's executor. 

Please note that to calculate the worth by today's monetary standard, you multiply by 13.
