The earthquake which struck Chile earlier today is a terrible thing. Hundreds have died, and there is much damage in this thin strip of a country which hugs the western coast of South America. In our minds, and in our imaginations, Chile may seem far away. But it is not.
Even Louise Brooks' films played there. Here is a newspaper advertisement for the 1928 film, Beggars of Life. It showed at the Imperio theater in Santiago, Chile in December 1929 as Mendigos de la vida.
Remember Chile in your thoughts and prayers. And please donate to earthquake relief. Chile is our neighbor in the world.
