The Firemen Of The Folies Bergeres [Nov. 19th, 2011|04:24 pm]
Tony Grist
If you love Luis Bunuel and/or Benny Hill this is for you. It dates from 1928 and features a brief appearance by the legendary Josephine Baker.

Warning: Contains female nudity and mild disrespect for the cloth.

That seems to have been done in the day when normal sized women had normal sized breasts. I wonder what they would think of today's pneumatic Barbie music videos.

I think they would have been puzzled- just as I am...

That was fun. What can I say? I like humor, and I like female nudity.

Wow, you just made my whole week. That video would've been good even without Josephine Baker, but it's always nice to come across what little footage of her there is. I have one of her movies on DVD, but it always bugs me her directors never followed Fred Astaire's lead and shot her in long takes dancing full frame.

Now I'm thirsty.

Baker is just one of many great performers who didn't spend enough time in front of the cameras. I've been looking at British music hall performers- all of them legends- most of them surviving in pitiful little rags of movies.

That was some powerful stuff he must have been drinking. :-)
