A blog about an actress, silent film, and the Jazz Age; and occasionally the Denishawn Dance Company, writer Frank Wedekind, his character Lulu, Weimar Germany, Hollywood, the state of Kansas, books, music, art, history and other things sometimes only tangentially related to the heart of the matter, written on a regular basis by Thomas Gladysz, Director of the LBS.
Here are two lovely stills from two early Louise Brooks films. The first is from It's the Old Army Game (1926). The second is from Love Em and Leave Em (1926). Both are Paramount films. Each captures the actress in an unrehearsed moment, un-posed, relaxed and naturally lovely.
