Western movie star from Gueydon?

Looking at a site on Western movie stars I see an Oscar DeCorti who was born in Gueydon, La of Vermilion parish. He lived to be over 90 years old and played as an Indian named Iron Eyes Cody in many western movies, according to this particular website. But a newspaper from Los Angeles, California states in his obituary from Jan 1999 that he was born in Oklahoma and named Oscar D. Cody. Since my maiden name was DeCorte and my ancestors from Sicily named DeCorti I am interested in finding out more about this movie star.
