    Description

    A Social Celebrity (Paramount, 1926). Fine/Very Fine. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Louise Brooks was the most famous of the Jazz Age flappers. Consider that by 1927 she was the fourth most written about female star following only Clara Bow, Joan Crawford, and Colleen Moore. This very rare lobby card is from her third film, now sadly lost. Prior to Hollywood she was a stage sensation with the Ziegfeld Follies and ran with the wealthy, the artistic, and the socially glamorous figures of the 1920s. Her trademark Dutch bob hairdo would be immortalized in Pandora's Box in 1929. Here is a chance to obtain a sought after item from her early career. This card shows slight edge wear, minute paper lifts and tears, and unobtrusive stains. There is a tear in the upper border that extends into Adolphe Menjou's credit as well as a reattached corner chip in the lower left, both of which are braced with paper tape on the verso.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
