G. W. Pabst’s sensationally modern and controversial melodrama, Pandora’s Box, defined the legendary persona of star Louise Brooks, solidifying her as ‘the' icon of the Jazz Age, and propelling her to international acclaim. The film, from one of the masters of early German cinema, follows the downward spiral of the brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu, whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she meets. Daring and stylish, Pandora's Box is one of silent cinema's great masterworks and a testament to Brooks' dazzling individuality. (1929, 133 mins)
