My all-time fave pic of Lupe Velez for a blogger friend who is now just discovering her.

Gorgeous! Have you ever seen "The Gaucho?" she is great in it. Rumor has it she and Doug Fairbanks had an affair during filming, since he was jealous of Mary Pickford's "friendship" with Buddy Rogers.

yes i have, i love that film! i think it's one of the best of the Fairbanks pictured I've seen to date.
and actually that was one of 3 films i recommended to Juliette as "must-see" Lupe!
the other 2 were Kongo and Squaw Man.
(Kongo is NOT for the faint hearted though!)
i wouldnt doubt that they had an affair, Lupe was a live wire, to put it mildly!

I would confuse her with Marlene in that photo.
