I have always been a huge fan of the stars of the Roaring Twenties. I think they possess a glamor that is all but forgotten today. This posts contains icons of my three favorite silver screen actresses: Clara Bow, Jean Harlow, and Marlene Dietrich. Again, I have not used any resources on these icons; however, please do not use them as bases. Furthermore, please comment and credit if you should use these icons. Thank you.

1-4: Clara Bow; 5-6: Jean Harlow; 7-8: Marlene Dietrich

Silent obsession! [17 Mar 2008|10:57pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Hello! everyone. I just join this community. I love silent film actresses. I don't have a favorite one, but I'm a real fan of Alla Nazimova (Those anyone else in this community is a fan of Mme. Nazimova?...). I love actors and actresses from the past, I believe they where more soficticated, more glamorous, that the ones of today...

Louise Brooks exhibit [08 Nov 2006|08:45am]

"Homage to Lulu: 100 Years of Louise Brooks"
an exhibit at the San Francisco Public Library
November 4, 2006 through January 5, 2007
Main Branch, Fourth Floor, Steve Silver Beach Blanket Babylon Music Center

"Homage to Lulu: 100 Years of Louise Brooks" celebrates the centenary of the silent film star Louise Brooks (1906 - 1985). Now considered an icon of the Jazz Age, Brooks' popularity today rivals that of her more celebrated contemporaries. On display are dozens of vintage objects - including books, magazines, sheet music, postcards,and related ephemera - which tell the story of her life and films.

Highlights include American and French photoplay editions (the movie tie-in editions of the 1920's), an editorial comic strip explaining the scandalous circumstances behind Brooks' affair with Charlie Chaplin, Brooks' inspired novels, a jumbo-size lobby card, and a full-page newspaper advertisement for "Show Girl" - the Brooks-inspired novel which became a hit stage play and the long-running comic strip "Dixie Dugan."

This exhibit - organized by Thomas Gladysz and the based Louise Brooks Society - coincides with many other events taking place around the San Francisco Bay Area and the world. More info at sfpl4.sfpl.org/news/exhibitions.htm /// Some snapshots of the exhibit can be found at louisebrooks.livejournal.com/
