      Louise Brooks died of a heart attack during the night of August 8th,
      1985.
      She was seventy-eight years old. This year marks the seventeenth
      anniversary of her passing. Why not watch a film or video or DVD in
      remembrance.

      LOUISE BROOKS SOCIETY ANNIVERSARY

      In August of 2002, the Louise Brooks Society
      (http://www.pandorasbox.com) celebrates its seventh year online. And
      sometime this month, the website will also enjoy its 750,000th
      visitor.

      Begun in 1995, the LBS has grown to become the largest, most popular
      and most comprehensive website devoted to any silent film star. (It is
      also one of the oldest silent film websites on the internet.) The site
      now contains more than 200 pages of material, and serves as home to
      the Louise Brooks Society - the world's first "virtual fan club." At
      last count, its approximately 1100 members hail from 43 countries on
      six continents.

      In its seven year history, the LBS has been recommended by the
      Encyclopedia Brittanica's "Brittanica Internet Guide," featured on the
      Microsoft Network's "One Click Away," as well as being named an USA
      Today Hot Site, Open Directory Cool Site, Celebrity Site of the Day,
      Hollywood Site of the Week, and Yahoo "Desert Island Pick." And just
      last month, in an
      article about Louise Brooks, the Stuttgarter Zeitung newspaper in
      Germany
      referred to the LBS website as "exemplary." [ See

      And as always, new material is added on an on-going basis. Look for
      more material in the coming
