Film historian Pamela Hutchinson talks about the life and legacy of 1920s star Louise Brooks

Louise Brooks was born in Kansas, and made her name as first, one of the most beautiful dancers on Broadway, and then as one of the most rebellious starlets in silent-era Hollywood.

Known for her insouciant face, hot temper and distinctive flapper haircut, her lasting fame was secured by a trio of art films she made in Europe after turning her back on Los Angeles. The first made her name - the German silent Pandora's Box, in which she plays Lulu, a dangerous Weimar femme fatale who brings the men and women who love her to their knees.

After seeing all there was to see in the movie industry on both sides of the Atlantic, Brooks lived to tell the tale and to be reclaimed as a true star of the early cinema. In her later life, her uniquely provocative voice shone in a series of articles that told the unpalatable truth about the movie business
