Die Büchse der Pandora 1929


Louise Brooks - Die Büchse der Pandora

When the censors got through with this German-made picture featuring Louise Brooks, there was little left but a faint, musty odor. It is the story, both spicy and sordid, of a little dancing girl who spread evil everywhere without being too naughty herself. Interesting to American fans because it shows Louise, formerly an American ingénue in silent films, doing grand work as the evil-spreader. Silent.

Photoplay February 1930
