Louise Brooks and 1920s Radio: a fascinating discovery

Unread post by thomas_gladysz » Wed Sep 19, 2018 3:38 pm

I've written a long blog entry on Louise Brooks and 1920s radio. This post was made after I recently came across a clipping about a 1926 radio show about / or dramatizing one of Brooks' films, Just Another Blonde.

Three clippings are embedded in the blog, each of which discuss silent film on the radio in the silent film era! Would anyone on NitrateVille know more about this subject.

I invited anyone interested to check it out at http://louisebrookssociety.blogspot.com ... ating.html

Thank you! I will be researching until the day I drop, and am currently at work on a new book, Around the World with Louise Brooks, which should be out sometime early next year. I am 300 pages into this heavily illustrated book, which I expect may run almost 500 pages. Stay tuned.

Otherwise, my other big find regarding Louise Brooks and radio is that I uncovered the audio tapes of Louise Brooks 1962 radio broadcasts, which are full of anecdotes regarding Charlie Chaplin, Rudolph Valentino, Clara Bow and others. Fascinating stuff.
