Louise Brooks, A Girl in Every Port plays Madison, Wisconsin

Director Howard Hawks had this to say about his choice of Louise Brooks for A Girl in Every Port (1928): "I wanted a different type of girl. I hired Louise because she's very sure of herself, she's very analytical, she's very feminine, but she's damn good and sure she's going to do what she wants to do."

This Howard Hawks-directed buddy film, in which Brooks plays a gold digger, is considered one of the legendary director's best silent efforts. It screens at the Cinematheque at the University of Wisconsin in Madison on December 7th, with live musical accompaniment provided by David Drazin.
