Louise Brooks (circa 1926)

Biography

American film actress and dancer, noted as an iconic symbol of the flapper, and for popularizing the bobbed haircut.

Brooks is best known as the lead in three feature films made in Europe: Pandora's Box (1929), Diary of a Lost Girl (1929), and Miss Europe (1930); the first two were made by G. W. Pabst. All these films were considered very "adult" and shocking for their portrayals of sexuality as well as their social satire.

She starred in seventeen silent films and eight sound films before retiring in 1938. Brooks published her memoir, Lulu in Hollywood, in 1982; three years later she died of a heart attack in Rochester, New York, on 8 August 1985 at the age of 78.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield provided copy of birth report, "A Girl," The Cherryvale Daily News (Kansas), 14 November 1906, p. 1: "Attorney L. P. Brooks is stepping around today like a blind horse in a clover patch all on account of a young lady who came to his home this morning where she will reside in the future..."

This must be a late edition of the paper as the lead story on the same page reports that a man appeared at court "at two o'clock this afternoon." A birth time for Brooks of 6 AM is speculative.
