DVD of all my Louise Brooks movies to anyone willing to record this for me!
- Overland Stage Raiders to be broadcast this December!
Louise Brooks' last film, Overland Stage Raiders (1938), will be
broadcast in theÊUnited StatesÊon the STARZ Westerns cable
station on December 8th at 1:15 pm, and again on December
21st atÊ4:30 pm and December 28th atÊ4:00 am. ItÊwill alsoÊbe
shown onÊthe MOVIEplex cable station on December 8th at 2:15
pm. Consult your local listing for further deatils.
Overland Stage Raiders (1938) is not a great film, but is worth
seeing because Louise Brooks is featured in it.ÊThough she
then sported a brushed-back 1930's hairstyle (and not her
trademark bob), she still looked quite lovely at age 31. The film
isÊapproximately 55 minutes long, and is considered part of the
"Three Mesquiteers" series. Brooks co-stars along with John
Wayne, Ray CorriganÊand MaxÊTerhune.
Interestingly, because it starred John Wayne (before he made it
big in the movies), this otherwise b-grade picture has
occassionally beenÊshown theatrically in the United States in the
decades since its release. These screenings tool place in the
1940's and 1950's. The film was also shown on television in the
1970's. I wonder how many viewers then recognized the once
and future Lulu?
I have Beggers of Life, The Show Off, Pandora's Box & Diary of a
Lost Girl. Will transfer all for to a DVD and throw in a copy of E!'s
Hollywood Mysteries & Scandals - Louise Brooks if it fits.
