Lepe, Ana Bertha

(Ana Bertha Lepe Jiménez)
(1934 - )
   her 4th-place finish in the 1953 Miss Universe contest was Ana Bertha Lepe's springboard to fame (although she had already appeared in minor roles in a few films). Between 1953 and 1959 Lepe made 35 movies, but her career and personal life was seriously threatened in 1960, when her father shot and killed her fiancé, actor Agustín de Anda (she was later married for a brief period to someone else). After a year on an unofficial blacklist, Lepe returned with a vengeance, making 17 features in 1961-62. Her career declined as the decade went on, and she was off-screen from 1969 until 1974, when she made two films for Rogelio Agrasánchez. Since this time, she has only appeared in one movie (El patrullero 777, 1977) and several telenovelas. Lepe, who has suffered from ill-health in recent years, spends most of her time at her home in Texcoco.
