Film: Pandora's Box (1925)
Directed by G.W. Pabst and starring Louise Brooks, this classic silent German film tells of Lulu, a seductive, thoughtless young woman whose raw sexuality and uninhibited nature bring ruin to herself and those who love her, until she encounters one of history's most notorious killers - Jack the Ripper. The film was considered particularly shocking at the time of its release because of the suggestion of a lesbian attraction between Lulu and a Countess. 103 minutes.
