Early Years. Mary Louise Brooks was actually born in Cherryvale, Kansas on November fourteen, 1906. She was the daughter of Leonard Brooks, an attorney with a busy practice, and Myra Rude; a young artistic-minded woman who decided that any squabbling brats that she produced could take proper care of themselves otherwise. This resulted in Brooks being taken to boarding school from the age of thirteen until the age of twenty-three, where she gained a decent education and eventually became a prosperous writer.
Early Life. It is said that Louise Brooks could have been a very successful and respected writer had it not been for one major factor which was her father’s unstable mental state. Brooks would often spend the better part of her youth in and out of foster homes because her foster family did not understand or approve of her leaving home as they felt she was simply run off due to her sexual orientation. Though this is not completely true, it can be said that she was very often abandoned by her foster family and was at times even mistreated. At the age of sixteen, she went to live with her Aunt Emmelie in Kansas City where she met and fell in love with Brooks’ Uncle Gustaf. However, this attraction was something that Brooks would carry into her adulthood and would often consider as a cause for her to remain in Kansas City after college.
Silent Era. After graduating from college in nineteen eighties, Brooks began working in Kansas City as an illustrator for newspapers which gave rise to her lifelong passion for art. It was here that she would come across the pen name Louise Brooks who would pen her first novel’Louise Brooks’ which just about had kickstarted her famous career in Hollywood. The novel was a huge success and set her on her path to stardom in Hollywood.

When she moved to Hollywood in nineteen eighties with her uncle, Brooks began to appear in a number of plays and films. She had a small role in either ‘A Christmas Story’ or ‘The Rainmaker’, but would always return to her silent era roots, working in all manner of entertainment. From performing in plays to various movies, from portraying a nymph in the animated hit ‘Nights In White Satin’ to more mainstream roles such as that of Anna Kournikova in ‘Dumb And Dumber’ and Carol Burnett in ‘A Beautiful Dream’ – Brooks has also made a name for herself in the film industry.
The late nineteen forties saw Brooks appear in ‘All about Eve’, a picture that failed to achieve the success of the earlier films she had made. Though the film failed to become a hit, it did prove to be a box office hit in the Czech Republic and given Brooks her second major break in Hollywood. She then appeared in the remake of ‘The Nutcracker’, which was one of the most well-received plays in Europe in the late nineteen sixties. With the increasing popularity of the silent films, Brooks decided to try her hand at the bigger screen and appeared in the adaptation of ‘Gossip Of Paris’ in which she played the part of Cleopatra. Though her appearance was minimal in the movie, it established Brooks as one of the biggest names in Hollywood and her name would continue to be linked with the art and entertainment industry for many years to come.
As she rose to stardom, Brooks often returned to her love of the dance and she chose to focus on that part of her life when possible rather than focusing on the more classical acting roles which are often associated with the early career of an actress. Though she never achieved the success of her earlier films, her role in ‘My Fair Lady’ marked a step in the right direction and she continued to receive accolades for her work throughout her career. As she aged however, she began to experience the toll of the film star lifestyle and faced the challenges of aging gracefully in her career. She accepted the fact that she would have to slow down a bit in order to remain true to her artistic passions and that it was simply part of the process.
