LACMA's Tuesday Matinees is showing The Girl From Mexico, the first in the popular "Mexican Spitfire" series starring Lupe Velez. A popular leading lady at a time when Latina roles were scarce, Velez eventually returned to Mexico in 1944 to star in Nana, based on the Zola novel. Less than a year later she passed into legend as one of Tinseltown's most notorious suicides.
