Lupe Velez


Recommended Posts

I watched STRICTLY DYNAMITE tonight. Enjoyed it. I'm happy TCM showed this again. It's been a couple years. Jimmy Durrante is funny. Lupe Velez was beautiful and funny. She must've been in her mid 20s when she was in this.

 

I've read about Lupe Velez in books over the years. I found out she killed herself. That makes me sad. She was so beautiful.

 

I've read in Hollywood Babylon Lupe was found dead with her head in the toilet. I DON'T BELIEVE THAT. I hate that book. It's a sick , ugly book. I haven't read it in years and don't plan to again. From what I've heard , a lot of the book is bull.

Lupe was quite the emotional wildcat in real life, having been a spitfire girlfriend for a young Gary Cooper, who finally found her too much to deal with, and later married to the most famous of vine swingers, Johnny Weissmuller. I guess Johnny found her too much, as well, since they did divorce.

 

TCM occasionally shows Velez in her Mexican Spitfire comedies, and it's a real hoot to watch Lupe's classic ****-for-tat interactions with Laurel and Hardy in the highlight sequence of Hollywood Party.

 

A young Lupe also played an effective leading lady to Douglas Fairbanks in one of the best of his silent costumers, The Gaucho.

 

Lupe was vivacious and a little bit of a caricature of a crazy Latin wildcat, from what I understand, though, a reflection of the real person. She wasn't exactly subtle as a performer but she deserves to be remembered for the infectious high spirits that she brought to her comedy film roles more than the bizarre circumstances that may or may not be true regarding her tragic death.

Yes, Ray, HALF NAKED TRUTH is also a good one to mention. Great for Lee Tracy fans, as well, since he was at his peak during the pre-code period.

 

And it does come on TCM on occasion. (Thanks, TCM, for allowing us to see these little gems).

I am not that familiar with many of Lupe's movies but I must say that the segment of her with Laurel and Hardy in *Hollywood Party* is right at the top of the list of my favorite funny scenes of all time. It is very sad that the story of her final moments have been so exploited by trash like the Hollywood Babylon book. And unfortunately those stories get repeated enough that they become "fact" in the public mind.

As an insight into Lupe's fiery, tempestuous nature, here's an amusing anecdote about her from Errol Flynn's autobiography, My Wicked Wicked Ways. Now, Flynn was not above exaggerating to tell a good tale but I figure there has to be some truth in what he writes here:

 

Lupe Velez and Lili (Flynn's wife, French actress Lili Damita) were more or less rivals. They had acted together in several successful pictures. Lupe, the Mexican spitfire, was as wild as Tiger Lil (the actor's nickname for his wife) - but they were friendly, as far as women of that kind can be friendly - the same kind of friendship that a female octopus or giant squid has for another of the same species. There is mutual respect, at least.

 

Lupe had a unique ability to rotate her left breast. Not only that, she counter-rotated it, a feat so supple and beautiful to observe that you couldn't believe your eyes. Beyond that, her breasts were probably the most beautiful that even Hollywood had ever seen.

 

Eddie Goulding, the director, was a good friend of Lupe's. He played a trick on her. He told her that I was madly in love with her, that I could think of nobody but her, that I couldn't eat or sleep because of her. She must get in touch with me.

 

I was asleep after a hard day's work. At about one AM the phone kept ringing, and I tossed and ignored it. But finally, so that I could sleep, I answered the damned thing. It was Lupe.

 

She spoke with a Mexican lilt, used r's plentifully, and two g's or so at the end of each darling-g. She said sweetly into my ears, "E-rr-oll, I must see you, dar-r-ling-g."

 

I had already seen her rotate her breast clockwise, counterclockwise, north and south.

 

"Please don't come over, Lupe, I'm dog-tired."

 

"I'm chust around the block at Chonnie's (Johnny Weissmuller's) house, Er-rol, blease!"

 

"No, no, Lupe, honest-to-Jesus, don't. I'm tired out tonight."

 

"Honey - ton't you vurry, I'll be dere in wan meenit!"

 

I put the phone back in its cradle very nervously because actually Lupe wasn't my type. I thought at first of locking the door, but I had seen Lupe in action. I realized any kind of barricade was no defense against her. Like Lili, she was tough and she had made up her mind. Eddie Goulding had worked her up to a pitch from which there was only one return, for her and for me.

 

I hardly had time to bite my lower lip with nervousness when I heard the crunch of car tires. That's Lupe in her new Cord, I said to myself. The brake pulled up with an inevitable, even sexual, warning. There was a pounding at the front door. I buttoned up a robe and let her in.

 

Mark you, don't get the impression that Lupe wasn't terribly attractive. She just wasn't my type. I had been through so much violence that I was unable to cope with it anymore. In particular, I couldn't cope with a woman of this time, like Lili. I wasn't capable of being tough and catching a woman by her hair and the seat of her pants and throwing her out the door.

 

She bounded up the stairs into my bedroom.

 

I protested I was more exhausted than I really was. I took one good look at her and realized I was terribly awake.

 

She started to undress, singing an enchanting little Mexican song at the same time. In the dim light she was a vision of beauty.

 

She fell on her knees beside the bed.

 

For a while we were much engaged. Then her eyes moved. She looked upward at my dresser and let out a little gasp.

 

There stood the hacked up figurine of my Madonna and Child from Spain. She stopped what she was doing. I glanced at her, then at the little momento.

 

At that instant she leaned back in the most religious pose, on her little knees - more beautiful than ever. Her naked little body was itself a figurine of delicacy and ecstasy as she posed in the dim light.

 

She prayed to the headless Madonna and Child to forgive her for what she was doing.

 

I watched in fascination as she said a couple of Ave Marias, telling some invisible beads.

 

Having absolved herself, a smile opened on her momentarily spiritually clothed face - and she again took up the subject of Flynn.
