The inspiration behind this piece
The enigmatic Louise Brooks was born in Cherryvale, Kansas, on November 14, 1906. She is known for her iconic bob hairstyle, seductive flapper style, alluring dance skills and for her many lovers. She is now regarded as a Jazz Age icon.
Before becoming an iconic film star, Louise Brooks was a professional dancer. At the age of 15, she began working with the Denishawn School of Dancing and Related Arts. Due to an outstanding conflict with a founder of the school, she was publicly dismissed in 1924. She was only 16.
Soon after getting fired, Louise became a chorus girl and danced in George White’s Scandals and soon after she danced with the Ziegfield Follies.
It was while working for the Ziegfeld Follies that Louise captured the attention of the head of Paramount, Walter Wagner. In 1925 she received a five-year contract. Unfortunately, by 1929 she would become disillusioned and tired of the Hollywood scene and would choose to travel to Europe in pursuit of better roles instead of fulfilling her existing obligations.
It was in Europe that the beauty made her mark as a Hollywood star. She worked with the prominent Australian Expressionist director G.W. Pabst on two films Pandora’s Box (1929) and Diary of A Lost Girl (1929). These were the films that really made her shine as a standout actress. In these films employed an acting method that was more subtle and less exaggerated. She describes her interpretation of acting as follows: “[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.”
By December of 1929, she was back in New York, and while she received a number of roles, they were limited. Before departing to Europe, Louise Brooks had refused to complete work for the film he Canary Murder Case (1929) which placed her on a blacklist among Hollywood executives. She basically retired from film in 1938 after securing fewer and fewer roles.
Here is a short compilation of clips from her career:
