L in on sale uie ttlm m soe present, would wen beloved, and that the proceeds "VY/HEN the treasures of the late star were placed Hollywood it was expected that all his friends colony, as well as those fans fortunate enouc bid for souvenirs of RuoV would \ --;--v > U1C greatly enrich his estate. And that is just what did happen, except that it was not a jostling, chattering crowd, but a subdued, almost reverential one — yet the prices paid for the furnishings of Rudy's home and for his horses and dogs were far below the value of the articles. Next month's Picture-Play will have an intensely interesting description of the auction, written by A. L. Wooldridge, whose keen observation permitted no detail to escape him. You will learn just who bought Rudy's things and how much wTas paid for them ; who will henceforth ride Firefly, the horse he used in "The Son of the Sheik," and why his clothing was bought by no one at all. OTHER ARRESTING FEATURES Picture-Play for April will keep up that pace which you have enjoyed in the past by including in its contents other remarkable stories. For example, there will be an authentic story of how Charles Ray's financial reverses have been met with calmness, selfsacrifice, and courage ; an unusual article dealing with various pairs of pals in Hollywood — how they first met and what makes them congenial ; another installment of "Film Struck," that gay novel of the movies, and so many other entertaining items that there is no space to mention them all. Just buy the April Picture-Play, and see for yourself.
