Lupe Velez was a well loved Mexican actress during the late 1920s to the early 1940s and best remembered as Carmelita Lindsay in the "Mexican Spitfire" series of films. Some of her movies include: Kongo, The Half Naked Truth, The Gaucho, The Squaw Man, and the Girl from Mexico. Her romantic life, however, was a disaster (including a battling on again, off again marriage with Johnny Weissmuller), so much so that in 1944, she committed suicide with sleeping pills while pregnant with her first child. Lupe was 36.
