Less Than The Dust
"Less Than the Dust" was a two-page photo spread in the February, 1928 issue of Motion Picture Classic. A bit of accompanying text reads: "A tragedy of India is brought to picturesque life. Louise Brooks illustrates one of the Indian Love Lyrics of Laurence Hope, which Amy Woodforde-Finden has set to music."
The six pictures included on these pages - credited to Hommel Photos, were meant to illustrate these 1903 lyrics, which read:
Less than the dust beneath thy chariot wheel,
One of these images was subsequently issued as a German postcard. A reproduction of the card can be found on the Postcards Page.
