Group Description

Mistress Louise Brooks

"Born Mary Louise Brooks on November 14, 1906 in Cherryvale, Kansas. She was the second of four children. At age 4, Louise made her first public appearance, playing a pint-sized bride in a church benefit production of Tom Thumb's Wedding. She was however, a very normal child."

"In her own way, the silent film star Louise Brooks was very much part of the Jazz Age. Her rise as a personality and as a film star was in keeping with the central phenomenom of the flapper era - the worship of youth. Brooks' exuberant social life echoed the flamboyant tenor of the times, while her social circle included the notable figures who helped define the era - such as the composer George Gershwin and the writers F. Scott Fitzgerald, Robert Benchley, H.L. Mencken and Anita Loos. Prior to her career in Hollywood, Brooks briefly appeared in such New York stage productions as the George White Scandals and Zeigfield Follies. Her tenure on stage (and later in the movies) brought her into contact with the wealthy, the artistic and the socially glamourous figures of the 1920s."
