After Fatty Arbuckle was accused of raping and killing the young actress Virginia Rappe (he was innocent), his career was ruined. He attempted to make films under the alias "Will B. Goode", but everyone knew it was him and the films flopped.
Gary Cooper and Lupe Velez....One of Vélez's more publicized relationships was with actor Gary Cooper. Vélez met Cooper during the filming of The Wolf Song, and began a two-year affair with him. About her romance with Cooper, Dietrich said: "Gary was totally under the control of Lupe". When Cooper filmed Morocco, he found time to have an affair with Dietrich, despite the constant presence of Vélez on the set.
