Rare early portrait on eBay
A previously little seen portrait of a young Louise Brooks, most likely taken in 1925 by M.I. Boris, has shown up on eBay. The auction page can be found here. Along with some hand-written notations refering to Pandora's Box (which perhaps dates the use of this image for publicity purposes to late 1928 or early 1929), stamped on the back of the image is "Louise Brooks appearing in Paramount Pictures" and "From Dept. Foreign Publicity and Advertising FAMOUS PLAYERS LASKY CORPORATION 485 Fifth Avenue New York City O.R. Geyer Manager".
The Louise Brooks Society webpage devoted to this singular photographer can be found here.
