    I like the posts, and did not realise how popular and HOT  Louise Brooks was.

    I am a big "old Hollywood" fan, but the pre Hayes posters are ones I have not seen before and are in part wonderful. Art Deco meets soft porn. Lovely.

    Yes, the Louise Brooks posters are the highlights of the book for me. I still recall the first time I saw Louise Brooks in Pandora's Box - electrifying. "Acting does not consist of descriptive movement of face and body but in the movements of thought and soul transmitted in a kind of intense isolation." She was thirty years ahead of her time. It's ironic that her own life paralleled Lulu's to some extent.
