Site updates – February 2021

I’ve taken the opportunity afforded by the UK lockdown to make some amendments and new additions to the site over the last few weeks:

New Galleries:
Sharing my image collection has always been part of the intention of the website and I’ve finally got around to doing this by uploading the first batch of pictures. The galleries can be accessed from the main menu where you’ll see a dropdown of options. There is a gallery for each of Luise’s films, plus separate galleries for a selection of images from her television and stage work. There are also individual galleries for magazine covers, studio portraits, and candid / press photos. The galleries currently contain over 250 images, many of which have not been made available online before.

New additions to the archive:
The archive continues to grow and I have recently added more transcriptions of articles from various sources, including:

– the earliest interview/article in the collection from Stuttgarter Illustrierte magazine in 1933
– An honest account of Luise’s situation in this interview of 1939 with Freda Bruce Lockhart for the British film magazine Film Weekly.
– A 1979 interview with Harry Haun for Films in Review magazine
– Complete transcription of Picturegoer’s 1937 supplement on The Good Earth featuring articles about Paul Muni and Tilly Losch, plus a piece by the director Sidney Franklin

New pages:
I’ve been slow to update the ‘other films‘ information, relating to those titles which Luise did not appear in but which have a connection to her in some way. Recent new additions here include pages for The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo, The General Died at Dawn and Madame Curie
