Relevant to my Interests, Ep. 6

I can't believe I haven't written one of these about Louise Brooks yet. She's right there in the subtitle, for God's sake. Few silent stars enjoy as wide a cult following among modern fans as does Lulu (as she is affectionately known by her devotees), and not without good reason. Much like Greta Garbo, Louise Brooks took special care to cultivate an image of unattainability, and it is no doubt this aura which makes her so appealing to her legions of followers.

    Louise Brooks was completely fabulous.
