The sphinxlike Louise Brooks is a figure movie buffs have jealously kept to themselves. She was a great Hollywood star, but her most famous films were made in Germany. The American Cinematheque's one-night tribute to Brooks will feature two new, 2K digital restorations. Diary of a Lost Girl reunited her with G.W. Pabst, director of the powerfully erotic Pandora's Box, which provided Brooks with her definitive role. In Beggars of Life, Brooks disguises herself as a hobo and goes on the lam after killing her abusive stepfather. Both are opportunities to get acquainted with one of the silent screen's most fascinating personas. Show up at 6:15 p.m. for a live musical performance by The Chapwinds, a new wind ensemble specializing in film music.
