Louise Brooks co-stars: Alice Roberts & André Roanne together

Here is something a little unusual, a couple of film stills featuring Louise Brooks' one-time European co-stars, Alice Roberts & André Roanne, in a scene from the French film, Quand nous étions deux (1930). Roberts & Roanne are the leads in this Léonce Perret directed production. Each image is currently for sale on eBay.

Alice Roberts (29 July 1906 – 29 October 1985) was a Belgian actress active from the late 1920s to the late 1930s. She is best-remembered for her role in G.W. Pabst's German silent, Pandora's Box (1929). The film was memorable due to the overt lesbian overtures between Roberts' character, the Countess Geschwitz, and Brooks' character, Lulu.

André Roanne (22 September 1896 – 4 September 1959) was a French actor. He began his career playing in short films, and acted in 91 films in total, most notably those of Fernandel. Most of his films were French productions; he did, however, also appear in German and Italian works. He also served occasionally as an assistant director, screenwriter, technician, and film editor. Roanne is best known in these circles as the dissolute Count Nicolas Osdorff in G.W. Pabst's Diary of a Lost Girl (1929).
