Louise Brooks: Dancer & Showgirl
This page is presents checklists of books relevant to Louise Brooks' experience as a dancer (with the Denishawn Dance company) and as a showgirl (with the George White Scandals and Ziegfeld Follies). It also represents some of the titles I have collected on the period.
Annotations for individual titles are offered when relevant or useful. This bibliography has been compiled by Thomas Gladysz, and was last updated on March 22, 2001.
