More a historical record than a movie, 5 January 2006
Author: pppatty from London England

I could not be more pleased that Lobster Films in cooperation with various European cinematheques have seen fit to preserve this footage which is primarily a compilation of acts from the Folies Bergere and other Parisian variety shows. Included are two clips with Josephine Baker who was actually a pretty clunky dancer, but a larger than life personality. The framing story of a young girl hoping to hit it big in the business can be dismissed, as can the sub-plot of her claiming to be robbed in order to attract publicity. However, the early two-strip color filming of the various artistes is not to be missed by any one interested in the development of film techniques. It's a pity however that the orchestral score was so out of keeping with the period.
