Looking for Lulu, big promo picture of Louise in The Canary
Murder Case with a paragraph of text:
Her iconic bob haircut is as much an emblem for cinema as
Chaplin's moustache, and her frank on screen sexuality and off-screen
reputation as a temperamental diva created a defining model for future
femme fatales. Louise Brooks, who would have been 100 on November
14th, was a star in the era of larger-than-life screen goddesses, yet
in many ways she retains more of a potent appeal than any other. In
December the National Film Theatre marks the occasion with a
retrospective that includes a newly restored print of her most famous
film, G.W. Pabst's 'Pandora's box'
