About me:The Louise Brooks Society (located at www.pandorasbox.com) is the largest and most popular website in the world devoted to any silent film star.
The LBS was founded in 1995 as a fan-site, and over the years has evolved into a comprehensive on-line archive and center for "all things Lulu." The site features a wide array of information about the actress including a filmography, commentary, links, bibliographies, vintage articles, memorabilia, portrait galleries, and contributions from fans from around the world. The LBS has a long running blog, as well as its own Louise Brooks inspired, silent film themed radio station, RadioLulu.
The LBS serves as home to an internet-based, international fan club. At last count, its 1550 members hail from 50 countries on six continents! The mission of the society is to celebrate and honor the actress by stimulating interest in her life and films.
"Silent-film buffs can get a taste of how a fan club from yesteryear plays on the web. The Louise Brooks Society site draws an international audience." -- USA Today
"A fine example of a fan page, a thoughtful, artful site devoted to the life and times of a fabled silent movie legend, with rare articles from the '20s and superb photos." -- Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
"The Louise Brooks Society has an exhaustive web site about this fascinating siren." -- Melbourne Age (Australia)
"Exemplary." -- Stuttgarter Zeitung (Germany)
"She bucked the system to make movies in Europe, notably Pandora's Box, which lends its name to www.pandorasbox.com, dedicated to her remarkable life and including some of her more risque poses - a reminder that the 1920s were as much about sex and style as any era since." -- Sunday Times (London)
"This San Francisco-run site pays tribute to one of the greatest and most underappreciated stars of all time, Louise Brooks, who played numerous bit parts and starred in only two films during the silent era. It contains tons of info, pictures and history." -- San Francisco Examiner
"Not many sites of any kind can claim to be celebrating a tenth anniversary online, but that’s true of the Louise Brooks Society, devoted to the life and times of the magnetic silent-film star and latter-day memoirist. Thomas Gladysz has assembled a formidable amount of material on the actress and her era; there’s not only a lot to read and enjoy, but there’s a gift shop and even a 'Radio Lulu' function that allows you to listen to music of the 1920s. Wow!" -- Leonard Maltin
