I found 'Louise Brooks' to be extremely well researched, written and so informative about the development of films and the studios. It is also well balanced and not all entirely 'pro' LB. Having watched Pandora's Box I'm not so sure why LB gained the cult following that she did - but she did and Barry Paris tells her story so well. Whether or not you're interested in Louise Brooks is almost irrelevant to this book - it's so lively, interesting and well written - with lots of photos/illustrations.
Most importantly you never get bored. Barry Paris is a gifted writer and a great biographer. Despite the weightiness of this book you would be happy to read on and read more. Testament to his subject matter and to his skill. If only other biographers could follow suit.
There are few biographies on the bookstore shelves, virtual or otherwise, that could ever rival this book.

One of the better biographies I have read. I felt like I was accompanying Louise Brooks through her turbulent life. It was full of scandal, gossip sex debauchery and art. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Ms Kerry Boettcher
