Lupe and Gary…

…a fine example of how Gary Cooper looked (on many occasions) after Lupe was done with him!

Lupe’s Proofs Are…Done!

It’s been two weeks of solid work, but I’m happy to report that the Lupe Velez proofs are DONE!

Everything will be sent back to the publisher on Monday, June 25, in time for the scheduled July 7th printing. Distribution will be shortly after that date, but the printing and release date is somewhat fluid and all depends on how long it’ll take for the publisher to make my corrections.

The Original Lupe Vélez Biopic…and the Star Who “Almost” Played Her…

It’s always lovely to personally hear from the children of actors and actresses from the golden age of Hollywood. This morning was no exception. I was pleased to receive an unexpected e-mail from the son (Eugene Biscardi) of Puerto Rican actress/singer/dancer, Marquita Rivera (1922-2002).

Back in the late-forties, Marquita was personally chosen by Mexican filmgoers (in a poll) to star in a biopic about Lupe’s life and career, however, legal matters, most notably from Lupe’s still-grieving family, put a stop to it.

Eugene said, “…The film production was put on hold because of the circumstances surrounding Lupe’s suicide. Her mother would not consent to the film rights. It was an outrageous scandal at the time.”

All these years on, to this day, there is still yet to be a biopic that has come to fruition. However, just this week, I’ve had two parties interested in obtaining the film rights to my book. Maybe, just maybe, “I’ll” break the cycle 😉

Stay tuned…

Thanks again to Eugene for the beautiful photo of his mom (below) and for contacting me! 🙂
