x Lupe Velez x

Father ashamed of her career so she wasn't allowed to use his surname

Moves from Mexico City home to Texas

Moves to California

Got parts in movies

Accused of promoting communism

30 and still not a huge star

Leaves Hollywood for Broadway

Gets Pregnant

Following her catholic upbringing refuses to have an abortion

Cannot bear to give birth to the child

Commits Suicide

To Harald: May God forgive you and forgive me, too; but I prefer to take my life away and our baby's, before I bring him with shame, or killing him. Lupe.

Edie Sedgwick plays Lupe in the Warhol film "Lupe"
