This month, I made four trips to the library at Stanford University. I have been wanting to visit this large academic library - located about an hour south - for some time.
I browsed "the stacks" - examining the large collection of books on film and film history. I found a number of interesting German and French titles which included fresh bits of information on Brooks and her three European films. I also found some interesting books on the German writer Frank Wedekind, author of the Lulu plays.
No trip to a library would be complete without a search through periodicals! I looked through bound issues of old Italian and German film magazines, as well as some French and English newspapers on microfilm. I also looked through issues of the Stanford University student newspaper dating from the 1920's. All of these sources yielded a smattering of articles, reviews and advertisements.
