Bringing the past to life with colour

Louise Brooks

LOUISE BROOKS zeigfeld
Louise Brooks in 1925. It was quite a busy and important year for Brooks. Among other things, she joined the Ziegfeld Follies, which is where this photo comes from, she had a summer long affair with Charlie Chaplin, she appeared on her first magazine cover, Art & Beauty Magazine, and most importantly for the future star of silent movies, she appeared in her first film, “The Street of Forgotten Men“, and signed five year contract with Paramount.
