1968 Letter from Louise Brooks to DeMartino
4 November 1968
Dear Mr. DeMartino-
Thank you for your kind letter! It is most flattering- your troubling to want to see me.
But I can see nobody at this time.
Greta Garbo was famously misquoted, she never said "I want to be alone" instead just, "I want to be left alone"- but Louise Brooks prized her own intense isolation and delightfully defended same- in another treasure from my archives, a 1968 letter to DeMartino.
