Being remembered for her iconic look more than for being
a movie star, would have been just fine with Louise Brooks.
She hated Hollywood and didn't believe in acting . . .
just in being yourself, which she found much more challenging.
Spend some time with Louise and documentarian Richard Leacock
in this rare four part interview . She recalls the decadence of
Berlin and Paris in the 20's, as well as why she was chosen
to be Lulu in Pandora's Box over Marlene Dietrich.
(At 25, Miss Dietrich was far too old !)
