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.
Jim Tully's Beggars of Life adopted for classroom use
According to the Jim Tully Facebook page, the recent Kent State University edition of Beggars of Life by Jim Tully has been named assigned reading for students. The book has also gone into a 2nd printing.
Beggars of Life was the inspiration for the 1928 William Wellman film of the same name starring Louise Brooks.
Hopefully, this interest in the source material for the film will spur its eventual release on DVD or BluRay.
