1927 Large studio photograph of Lupe Velez as it was announced that she had been signed by the Hal Rach studios and might appear in the next Douglas Fairbanks film. Issued by the studio, this is one of the earliest images of Velez we have er seen with an early caption as well! Condition and quality are both outstanding making this a nearly perfect example that even shows the volatile actress in a very risqué and seductive pose that would come to be one of her trademarks! Perhaps her greatest image ever offered considering the age and pose!
