Louise Brooks declared second most beautiful woman by Carl Van Doren
Back in 1929, a syndicated article ran in newspapers in which the noted literary critic and Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Carl Van Doren declared Louise Brooks the second most beautiful woman in the world. Carl Van Doren was also the brother of critic Mark Van Doren and the uncle of Charles Van Doren, who was famously involved in a television quiz show scandal in the 1950s. Unfortunately, this instance of the article has the wrong image for Brooks.
