lulu  This page presents an annotated, worldwide bibliography of reviews, articles and other published material related to the 1926 film Just Another Blonde. This American film (sometimes titled The Girl from Coney Island in New York City) includes Louise Brooks in the role of Diana O'Sullivan. Around the world, this film was exhibited or written about under other titles including The Charleston kid (Argentina); The Charleston Kid (Cuba?); Pouze jinı svetlovlası (Czechoslovakia); Den blonde fare (Denmark); Die Braut am Scheidewege (Germany); Caixeiro Viajante (Portugal); Una de Tantas (Spanish); and Den blonda faran (Sweden).

The story is of the tritest, telling about two inseparable boys who fall in love with two inseparable girls, and are almost separated because neither is willing to let a woman come between them. It is cleverly told by a director who knows how to hold attention. The titles are a continuous stream of the most flagrant wise cracks that ever made an audience laugh, but they are undeniably neat in their application, and quite in character. Dorothy Mackaill and Louise Brooks are good as the two girls." - capsule review in trade journal
