3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By bernie HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 26, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is one of about 42 Screenplays in a series. The book is full of monochrome stills in clusters. This volume contains G.W. Pabst's original Shooting script plus "Pabst and Lulu" by Louise Brooks, and "Pabst and the Miracle of Louise Brooks" by Lotte H. Eisner We learn about the industry and times from those that have been there.

The movie stands on its own; however many times the movie uses camera zooms and facial expressions to imply more to the story than just the dialog. You have to be very astute to get their inferences. In the film script book there is no doubt as it is in black and white with titles.

If you did not see the movie:
The story is timeless and still holds your attention today. I was amazed as to how modern the film is its self. Probably the best know of G.W. Pabst's works. Being a film from the silent era gives this film a collector's value; yet five minutes into viewing and you do not realize it is silent.

LuLu (Louise Brooks) an amoral entertainer in 1928 Berlin, is having fun taking men for all they have and snubbing those that may care for her. After moving to London she is still in the habit of entertaining men at her place. She is about to open Pandora's Box as she has no idea who she has lured up to her place.

If you are looking for an ending with a moral statement you will be disappointed as it is more of a Quid pro quo.

If it is not already included on the media you picked for this film there is an available separate documentary Produced in 1998 for Turner Classic Movies called "Looking for Lulu", narrated by Shirley MacLaine, which is almost as interesting as this film.
