A Rare Interview with Louise Brooks
30 June 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Louise Brooks was an actress that rarely gave interviews, but in 1971, she gave a filmed interview to Richard Leacock. In 1984, the interviewer and Susan Woll produced and released the documentary "Lulu in Berlin", one year before the death of Louise Brooks.

In this interview, the bitter and cynical Louise Brooks discloses details of "Pandora's Box" and "Diary of a Lost Girl" and about her colleague Carl Goetz; her relationship with the expressionist director Georg Wilhelm Pabst, comparing his working method with Ernst Lubitsch; her meeting with Rene Clair; why Marlene Dietrich has not been selected to perform Lulu; insights about Greta Garbo and Leni Riefenstahl; and her relationship with her lover George Preston Marshall.

The interview gives the impression is that Louise Brooks was an easy woman ahead of time but driven by money, with many love affairs and also a non-professional actress controlled by Pabst. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Lulu em Berlim" ("Lulu in Berlin")
