Louise Brooks in Pandora's Box

Are there other Louise Brooks fans in Indy? We'd love to hear from you if there are. What we'd really love is for a local theatre to show some of her movies. Today would have been her 102nd birthday. We just purchased a great DVD copy of her most famous film, Pandora's Box. We found it locally at Fry's but you can always pick it up at Amazon. It has 2 great documentaries, a beautiful, informative book, and 4 different scores that you can chose from as the soundtrack. We are drawn to early German cinema (Metropolis, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) so combine that with the can't-take-your-eyes-off-of-her charisma of Louise Brooks and it makes for a powerful experience.
