DescriptionLouise Brooks (c. 1929). Very Fine. German Portrait Photo (8" X 10").
A vintage gelatin silver, single weight, glossy finish photo of silent screen icon, Louise Brooks, taken during her time in Europe. After refusing Paramount's attempts to make her appear in talkies and dub over her silent performance in the Canary Murder Case, Brooks journeyed to Germany where she made two silent films under the direction of G. W. Pabst, Pandora's Box and Diary of a Lost Girl. A first time offer from Heritage, this still of the gorgeous starlet shows minor corner bumps and bends, soft creases, light surface scuffs and blemishes, and faint smudges. Very Fine.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
