Louise Brook's - Pandora's Box

                                                                                                                                                   Pandora's Box is loosely adapted from two Wedekind plays comprising the 'Lulu' tragedy. The story deals with a beautiful, amoral woman who destroys all those who come under her spell, but who, as a Soho prostitute, falls victim to Jack the Ripper. Under Pabst's direction, the film is a masterpiece of atmosphere, camera movement and editing; it is also one of the most sexually charged films ever made, due largely to the incendiary performance of the American actress Louise Brooks .... All film faces, director G.W. Pabst must have known, are two-way mirrors.
 Scene from the 1929 silent movie "Pandora's Box" by G.W. Pabst starring iconic Louise Brooks in her most memorable role - here she dances with Countess Augusta Geschwitz (Alice Roberts), one of ciinema's earliest representation of lesbian desire.
