Louise Brooks

Louise Brooks

Louise Brooks epitomized “The Flapper” of the 1920s and much happened to her during that decade. Her hairstyle was copied by everyone. 

In 1925, she acted in her first silent movie, but she walked out on Paramount four years later when they did not give a promised salary raise to her. 

She traveled to Germany where she played a lesbian in the silent movie “Pandora’s Box” which made her famous. (Many thought she was a lesbian in real life.) 

In 1982, she published her memoir, Lulu in Hollywood.
