More True Confessions: Pics from the Louise Brooks Society (part 1)

Here are some more images from the 20 year history of the Louise Brooks Society. Launched in 1995, the LBS was one of the first websites devoted to silent film or a silent film star. Only a few pages at first, the LBS has grown, and so has its acclaim as a resource for fans of Louise Brooks as well as early cinema. Check it out at www.pandorasbox.com

With Louise Brooks: Portrait of an Anti-Star author Roland Jaccard (left)
in Paris in 2009. LBS Director Thomas Gladysz is center. On the right
is Aline Weill, who translated the Barry Paris biography into French.

In 1999, with 99 year old screenwriter Frederica Sagor Maas, who penned the
story behind the 1927 Louise Brooks' film Rolled Stockings. The event
the LBS co-presented with Maas for her book The Shocking Miss Pilgrim
was only the second she had done.


With author Barry Paris in 2000, at the LBS co-sponsored event
celebrating the new edition of the Barry Paris biography of the actress
(which the LBS helped bring back into print).

Introducing Pandora's Box at the Detroit Institute of the Arts in 2006,
the year which marked the Louise Brooks centennial.
 
With William Wellman Jr., whose Father directed the 1928
Louise Brooks' film Beggars of Life. Wellman Jr. told me his
Father adored Louise Brooks.

A long time ago with the Pulitzer Prize winning film critic Roger Ebert,
who told me he used the Louise Brooks Society website to
research Pandora's Box and Diary of a Lost Girl.
In 2006, with film critic Peter Cowie,
author of Louise Brooks: Lulu Forever.
