No Gaucho without LUPE…


Film actress mexican-born María Guadalupe Villalobos Vélez, better known as Lupe Velez,  may have been the former wife of Johnny “Tarzan” Weissmuller and the love slave of Gary Cooper, but it was her date with a john that keeps her name alive.
Cynics insist Velez died in bed, but this is Hollyweird, where facts are so easily flushed away. The Mexican Spitfire left this cruel world, pregnant by her married lover, Austrian actor Harald Maresch, by drowning herself . . . in her toilet. She was 36.

  4. And don't believe everything in Hollywood Babylon. Kenneth Anger thrives off of sensationalism at the sake of truth. He ran with early satanists like Jack Parsons, Curtis Harrington, Anton LaVey, and even Forry Ackerman!

  5. Total lie invented by Kenneth Anger, a nasty man. She overdosed and was found lying prostrate, fully clothed on her back with full make up. There is a photo online of her as described, just search for it (Huffington Post article).
