Louise Brooks, the quintessential Roaring Twenties film flapper, makes two encore appearances here. We were very pleased to see the lavish tribute book, written by film historian Peter Crowe. He shares Louise's background, from her love of dancing to her early career with the Ziegfeld Follies, and on to her smoldering sexually charged film appearances in the US and Germany. Her lovers were many and legendary. By chance, she enjoyed a second career, working with the George Eastman House in Rochester, researching and writing about early cinema. The stylish production and design of this book, featuring many newly discovered photos, portraits, film stills and letters, along with well-researched and
in-depth text, provides new insight into the silent film, silver screen icon. 256 pages, HC, 12-1/2" X 9", 175 illus.
The classic Eugene Richee portrait of Louise, shows how dramatic and stunning a woman in pearls can be. Wear it and you'll look stunning, too. Black background, 100% cotton t-shirt in adult sizes M/L/XL.
