The nearest you'll get to an autobiography from Miss Slinky and Sexy. Full marks to Lulu for producing such an interesting series of essays. However, we now know that some of her facts, concerning people she did not know so well,are wrong, but we should not blame our flapper - she tried her best. Oh to have known what she had in her full autobiog, which she dumped in the trashcan. Louise claims she did not want to reveal her full sexual exploits, but had no reticence in writing more on this subject than any actress has ever done before or since. I would guess that when she read Mack Sennett's book, and saw that even he shied away from dishing the full dirt on Hollywood, she had no option but to dump the manuscript - in case the 'boys' came round. She does, however, provide a solution to the puzzle as to what happened to the old silent movie stars. The Hollywood royalty (Gish, Normand, Purviance etc.) were apparently picked off one by one, and in various ways, by the movie moguls.All in all this unique book is a great read and well worth the money - not bad for a country hickess with a 'covered wagon' accent.
A very good book; an insight into the world of the 20's silent movies and the who did what to whom or who was doing what to whom of the era. For a washed up movie actress she produced an excellent comment on the times and herself as well as the industry.
Her movies are well worth a watch too, she changed the world of acting from the over dramatic to the natural. A real icon of the 20th cent.
