Happy birthday Louise Brooks

Louise Brooks was born on this day in 1906. Happy birthday Louise!

Here is a mini biography from Who's Who in Hollywood 1900 - 1976, by David Ragan. It's a bulky, 860 page encyclopedia style work with zillions of entries on just about everyone. As a reference work, its nice to have around - though it has been superseded by the internet and other contemporary reference works. The entry on Louise Brooks (written while she was still alive) is especially curious - it is respectful, but riddled with errors.
