Reaction: In 1925, emerging film star Brooks filed a lawsuit against photographer John de Mirjian to stop him from releasing nude photos he had taken of her when she was a showgirl. She reasoned that having nudes out for public consumption would make it harder for her to find a husband. According to reports, some pictures did get out, harming neither her film career not her prospects for wifehood (she got married in 1926). We can't be sure which shots were circulated at that time; this one was published in Playboy magazine many years later.
