Bring Me the Head of Lupe Velez


He rules with a fireworks display
Keeps 'em fooled as the jerks come to pray
By vengeance he's driven
Until then he won't give in
But cruelly, fate's quirks make him pay.

Surly Hack and David Cairns

Kongo (William J. Cowen; 1932): In the Kongo, embittered paraplegic "Deadlegs" Flint (Walter Huston) controls the natives by using cheap tricks that appear to be magical, assisted by his mistress Tula (Velez).

Lupe Velez departed on pills
hit her head on the tub
a goodbye with no frills...

The spitfire! You honor them, sir, once more!

My favorite Velez film is THE HALF-NAKED TRUTH.
