Can you watch silent movies? I think I've seen maybe two.Here's a good story about Louise Brooks that's not in the documentary...
When she was a Ziegfeld girl, of course she dated a lot of different men and so many of them had made quick money in the stock market that they could throw it around like confetti and did.
So, she tells her current "boyfriend" that she wanted a full-length mink coat, as they were going out dancing the next evening.
The boyfriend brings a mink coat alright, but it is a "halter-length" and not the full-length as she requested.
They get to the dance and right away Louise takes the coat, twirls it around in the air and says "Whoever wants this coat can have it!" and threw it into the middle of the dance floor.
It's just too melodramatic for my taste.
