AMERICAN VENUS, THE (1926)

Paramount Title card. The film is famous to collectors as it is the first film in which Louise Brooks had a featured role (as beauty contestant, Miss Bayport), but the film, and the title card in particular is most collectible to those who enjoy Miss America memorabilia and/or beauty contestant items. At center is Miss America of 1925, Californian Fay Lanphier. Though this is a lost film, two trailers do exist and one features two-strip Technicolor shots of one of the “Tableaus” staged for the beauty contest.
