Louise Brooks Biography

Actress, Film Actor/Film Actress, Film Actress (1906–1985)
Louise Brooks was a silent-film actress known for bringing a sense of corrupt sensuality to her roles.


Louise Brooks made her film debut in 1925, soon appearing in such Hollywood films as A Girl in Every Port and Beggars of Life. Perhaps her most memorable role was as the amoral, self-destructive temptress Lulu in Pandora's Box. Her innocent eroticism, along with her pale, beautiful features and bobbed brunette hair, made her both a film icon and a symbol of the disdainful flapper of the 1920s.
