Product description

One of the masters of early German cinema G.W. Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo). And perhaps none of his female stars shone brighter than Kansas native and onetime Ziegfeld girl Louise Brooks whose legendary persona was defined by Pabst's lurid controversial melodrama Pandora's Box. Sensationally modern the film follows the downward spiral of the fiery brash yet innocent showgirl Lulu whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone with whom she comes in contact. Daring and stylish Pandora's Box is one of silent cinema's great masterworks and a testament to Brooks' dazzling individuality.Special Features:"Lulu in Berlin" (48 minutes) a rare 1971 interview with BrooksAudio commentary by film scholars Thomas Elsaesser and Mary Ann Doane"Louise Brooks: Looking for Lulu" a 1998 documentaryNew restored high-definition digital transferFour different musical scoresA new video interview with documentarian Richard LeacockA new interview with G.
