Connections: The Rise, Fall, and Resurrection of Louise Brooks
You may have never heard of Louise Brooks, but this silent film star was at the height of her career when she ran away from Hollywood and disappeared. That’s until she came to Rochester and, with the help of the Eastman Museum, reemerged from obscurity to a new kind of fame.
We spend the hour discussing the rise, the fall, and the rediscovery of Louise Brooks. Our guests:
- Jack Garner, longtime film critic
- Thomas Gladysz, director of the Louise Brooks Society
- Charlotte Siller, student at SUNY Purchase, researcher, writer, and filmmaker
