Pabst really was a`genius - not only a master of scene, but he chose Louise Brooks and got one of the most sensual performances of all time. And not only did Louise have that beautiful neck, but her shoulders were damn fine. She could excite eunuchal things, like trees and rocks, I bet.

Because you can never have too much of Louise Brooks, although Hollywood never agreed with this assessment, more's the pity.

Oh, and BCNU, somewhere in Stephen & Tom's archives is photogreaphic proof that Louise's other bits were as damn fine as her neck and shoulders.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: in her prime, Louise Brooks was the most beautiful woman of the past century.

Denuve, Maggie Cheung and Dorothy Dandridge can duke it out for second place.
