Die Büchse der Pandora : Variationen auf das Thema Frank Wedekinds Lulu = Pandora's box : variations on the theme of Frank Wedekind's Lulu by G. W Pabst( Visual )

100 editions published between 1920 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the masters of early German cinema, G. W. Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo). And perhaps none of his female stars shone brighter than Kansas native and onetime Ziegfeld girl Louise Brooks, whose legendary persona was defined by Pabst's lurid, controversial melodrama Pandora's box. Sensationally modern, the film follows the downward spiral of the fiery, brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu, whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she comes in contact with. Daring and stylish, Pandora's box is one of silent cinema's great masterworks and a testament to Brooks' dazzling individuality

Australian vocational education and training statistics : trends in 'traditional apprenticeships' by Louise Brooks( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growth in the number of traditional apprentices accounts for only 7% of the total growth in all apprenticeships and traineeships between 1996 and 2002. As a consequence, their share of the total number fell from around two-thirds in 1996 to one-third in 2002. In part, this is a reflection of the fact that the total number of people employed as tradespersons has not altered much over the same period. This can be captured by changes in the training rate, ie. the number of apprentices and trainees in a given occupation group as a percentage of people employed in the same group. For traditional apprentices this has increased from 8.9% in December 1996 to 9.8% in December 2002, against a change in the training rate of 2.0% to 4.0% for the labour market as a whole
