Louise Brooks 102nd Today _ A True Movie Star.

Postby Kerkevik » Fri Nov 14, 2008 1:00 pm

Hi,

today would have been the 102nd birthday of my all-time favourite actress, Louise Brooks. When I first saw her in 1929's Pandora's Box (Die Büchse der Pandora) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0018737/ I fell in love with her (which is not that uncommon apparently, even when her fans discovered her in her sixties they became fascinated with her). A few years later I even went so far as to get a photo of her tattooed onto my chest. Here are some links that I have spent a good deal of time today, hunting down.

The first is a trailer...
The American Venus (1926)

My apologies fpr, maybe, going overboard but, she is truly a stunning actress, and a truly remarkable person.

Of course... I might be a little :D biased...

Still under Willow & Tara's spell,
Ray.
