On this day 101 years ago, Louise Brooks, patron saint of unrepentant flappers, was born. By all accounts, she was a fiercely intelligent and complicated woman who would not suffer fools in an industry that consists of nearly nothing but. She made only 25 films before being blacklisted walking away from Hollywood at the height of her career, and remains both one of the most iconic, (in)famous starlets of all time.
Louise Brooks is my dream woman — gorgeous, intelligent, strong-willed, and deranged to the core. We may never have another.
