Mary Louise Brooks (November 14, 1906 – August 8, 1985), generally known by her stage name Louise Brooks, was an American dancer and actress, noted for popularizing the bobbed haircut. She starred in seventeen silent films and eight sound films before retiring in 1935. Brooks published her memoir, Lulu in Hollywood, in 1982. Three years later, she died of a heart attack at the age of 78. "I have a gift for enraging people, but if I ever bore you, it'll be with a knife."
Kathryn Stanley as Salome (1926, photo by Edwin Hesser) “Thou rejectedest me. Thou didst speak evil words against me. Thou didst bear thyself toward me as to a harlot, to me, Salome, daughter of Herodias, Princess of Judaea! Well, I still live, but thou art dead, and thy head belongs to me.” -Oscar Wilde, Salome
