A Louise Brooks celebration on November 14th

The San Francisco Silent Film Festival has long been a supporter of the Louise Brooks Society. Way back in 1997, their newsletter, Intertitle, ran a brief mention of the LBS in their very first issue! And today, some 18 years later, the SFSFF email newsletter mentioned the LBS again.

Celebrate Louise Brooks's birthday (and the 20th anniversary of the Louise Brooks Society) on Saturday, November 14 at Video Wave on 24th Street. Thomas Gladysz will sign copies of the just-released Kino Lorber DVD/Blu-ray of The Diary of a Lost Girl with his commentary. Gladysz came to Kino Lorber's attention after he edited the 2010 "Louise Brooks edition" of Margarete Bohme's 1905 bestseller -- the basis for Pabst's 1929 film. The party starts at 2:00 pm. There will be treats!
Thank you San Francisco Silent Film Festival. I am looking forward to their upcoming Winter event, as should you. It is a full day of silent film on December 5th at the Castro Theater in San Francisco. Don't miss it. There will be great films and special guests a plenty.

The Louise Brooks Society is celebrating its 20th anniversary: here is a link to a piece about the event in the local Noe Valley Voice newspaper. Please note: there will NOT be a screening, just a meet and greet with candy treats, and a booksigning, a DVD release party, and who knows what else? Like pinback button giveaways (while supplies last).

Here are the links to the event on Brenton Films (out of the UK), and on Facebook and Eventbrite.
