Pandora's Box (1929)

Pandora’s book: news update

Just a short note, to give you a little bit of news. The book I’ve been writing, well actually wrote last summer, has a release date! It’s a short book in the BFI Film Classics series, about one of the most beautiful and fascinating of all silent movies, GW Pabst’s Pandora’s Box (1929), starring the unique Louise Brooks. #pandorasbook

Bad news for now – the book isn’t out until 21 November.

Good news for now – you can pre-order the book already, on Amazon, on the Palgrave site, or in a selection of other bookshops.

Good news to come – I’m talking to several people at venues up and down the UK, about screenings of the film to tie in with the launch. The deal is: I’ll come along, chat about the film, sell you a book and it will be midwinter magic all round. Details of those events to come, so watch this space …

Thanks for all your support. It’s also exactly a year today since I quit my full-time job and I have had a fabulous, busy 12 months of freelance film-related work. It’s enough to make a girl want to dance …

  1. Good news about the #PandorasGigs as well! NOw if only the powers that be would release it on Blu-ray… but, whatever, it’s best live and with a talk and with a book!!

  2. Looking forward to it! Delighted such a great film is being given more attention as the years go by. Attended a screening of it a few years ago in Dublin with no music, a literal silent movie. Still cast a spell though over the audience. Need more books like these to be published. Best of luck!
