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,
    Less than the rust that never stained thy sword,
    Less than the trust thou hast in me, my Lord . . .
    Less than the need thou hast in life of me . . .
    See here thy sword, I make it keen and bright,
    Love's last reward - Death comes to me tonight

One of these images was subsequently issued as a German postcard. A reproduction of the card can be found on the Postcards Page.
