The 30 Year Old Gary Cooper
3 November 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

During this film, Cooper was having an intense love affair with his leading lady, Lupe Velez. A bit of Mexican fire is an novelty to a westerner, so I can understand his emotional drive. Her real name was Maria Guadalope Velez, and she earned $14,000 whilst Cooper earned $2,750.
