Louise Brooks' first film screens this month
Cinefest in Syracuse, New York is set to screen the first film in which Louise Brooks had a part, The Street of Forgotten Men (1925). Cinefest 32 takes place Thursday, March 15 through Sunday, March 18, 2012.
The Street of Forgotten Men is very rarely shown, as very few copies of the film are known to exist. In the film, Brooks plays a moll, the girlfriend of a criminal. Her part is uncredited. Brooks was only 18 years old when the film was made. And, she appears on screen for only about 5 minutes.
Here is a scan of a newspaper advertisement for the first time The Street of Forgotten Men was shown in Syracuse, in November of 1925.
