Happy Birthday Brooksie!

Louise Brooks - 11/14/1906 - 08/08/1985


The above shot is unusual as Brooksie rarely wore jewelry.

The Kansas girl who became a dancer, who became an actress, who became a has-been, who became a recluse, who became a writer, who finally became a legend!

Below are a few images from my favorite Louise Brooks film, G.W. Pabst's silent masterpiece "Diary of a Lost Girl"

"We had faces!" - Gloria Swanson, Sunset Blvd.

The Juvenille Detention center scenes are not to be missed!

Absolutely beautiful
