As many of you know, production just completed a trip to the West Coast where we unearthed many locations and treasures, not the least of them being Louise's late 1920's Laurel Canyon home and the amazing San Francisco Silent Film Festival find of Now We're in the Air (1927), a previously considered lost film from Brooks's early career in Hollywood cinema.

 Filming at what used to be Louise's Laurel Canyon home with Philip Vorwald. Louise lived there with Eddie Sullivan, her ex-husband, and the spot was a notorious party location when the two of them lived in it.

 Then and Now: Louise posing in the archway of her home, one of the few places that hasn't been ravaged by time

 There used to be a diving board there in Louise's day!

Now that we've made it back to the East Coast, we are officially on the last lap of our production adventure before we hit theaters! What's next, you ask? Well, we're off to Europe to interview people and location scout in Berlin, Paris, and London!  Not only that, but new artifacts have been uncovered, so it looks like Charlotte will have to click her heels three times and head back to the midwest to look at some paintings, read some journals and learn about Japanese art technique; and maybe even brush up on her Proust with a thoroughly annotated copy (god knows she could use the notes-).

Stay tuned for more information in the coming days as we approach our 2nd Birthday, and thank you for all of your support!
