Lulu in Hollywood by Louise Brooks
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 31mb
Overview: Seven autobiographical essays-written in marvelously lucid prose and with extraordinary candor and acute perception-from a Hollywood legend: Louise Brooks.
Her look established the look of the twenties. Her talent, beauty, and sharp intelligence made her a rising star in the Hollywood of that era. But her fierce independence and individuality put her career in jeopardy by the time she was twenty-two. It was then that she went to Berlin to give her most electrifying performances-in G.W. Pabst’s 1929 films, Pandora’s Box and Diary of a Lost Girl. Finally, in 1940, after being reduced to acting in a second-rate Western, she left Hollywood forever. Now, she recalls her life, her career, her art, and the people she knew and worked with.
A uniquely valuable and provocative insight into the “golden period” of Hollywood from one of its most enigmatic and fascinating stars.
