Vote for the Louise Brooks Society

lulu  The Louise Brooks Society needs your help! In its never ending quest to document and archive "all things Brooksie," the LBS needs your assistance in finding reviews, translating articles, locating hard-to-find material, documenting ephemera, and identifying images. The LBS also appreciates any financial contributions you might be able to make. Here's your chance to get involved. And, here's your chance to become a contributing member of the LBS. Some current needs are listed below. More will be added on an ongoing basis. Thank you for taking the time to read this page.


Help is needed is locating newspaper articles about Louise Brooks, especially vintage reviews of the actress' twenty four films, as well as her appearances with the Denishawn Dance Company. Such material can be found in your local public or university library. Hundreds of articles have already been found. But more await discovery. If you are willing to help find vintage newspaper reviews, follow this link for suggestions on how to get started.

The LBS is always interested in acquiring reviews from smaller American towns, as well as articles and reviews from any European, Asian and Australian cities.


The Louise Brooks Society would appreciate a translation into English of any of the following articles or book excerpts. Translations will be posted on the LBS website with credit given to the translator. Please note: additional articles in need of translation (from the French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Japanese) will be posted in the future. Please check back.

Efimov, N(ikolaj). G. W. Pabst. Moscow: Gos. ob'edinennoe izd-vo "Iskusstvo", 1936.

--- would like to acquire high resolution scan of the "Mary Louise Brooks" bookplates which were for sale on eBay a few years ago

--- would like to acquire high resolution scans of the Italian, French or German editions of Lulu in Hollywood as well as the Barry Paris biography

The Louise Brooks Society is the largest and most comprehensive website in the world devoted to any silent film star. It also costs money to operate and develop. The hope is that individuals who enjoy this site will make a small donation to help keep things going. Monthly internet fees, occasional bandwith penalties, subscriptions, and the costs associated with running RadioLulu are just some of the many expenses that go into keeping the LBS on the web. A donation, in any amount, will also help defray the cost of photocopies, postage, research expenses, and the acquisition of vintage memorabilia (which is then posted on the site). Contributions will be used to ensure new material is added on an ongoing basis, and that the LBS continues as the most comprehensive site of its kind. The Louise Brooks Society is a not-for-profit web site. It is also a money losing labor of love. Please consider making a contribution.
