Many stars are forgotten for a while, then "rediscovered" and newly appreciated by a later generation. But the case of Louise Brooks is somewhat unique--she was, really, only a "star" in retrospect. Her Hollywood profile was headed that-a-way when she foolishly (according to the industry) abandoned it to make a couple European movies. When she returned, her moment had passed. Dennis Harvey reports.
