Joe Francis – La revue des revues AKA Parisian Pleasures (1927)


Gabrielle, an ambitious but innocent would-be young chorine, trumps a music hall publicity stunt to become the new Parisian nightclub Cinderella. But this lighter-than-champagne-bubbles story is only a pretext for LA REVUE DES REVUES’s white-hot, non-stop procession of outrageously and scantily attired exotic dancers, showgirls, and acrobats including the Tiller’s Follies Girls, Ruth Zackey and the Hoffmann Girls, and danseuse russe Lila Nikolska. But it’s Josephine Baker, “the high priestess of primitivism”, who triumphs in two show stopping numbers in which “her clownish backfield-in-motion Charleston shimmy is unlike anything else in the movie and perhaps unlike anything anyone ever did”.

Grâce au soutien de l’acteur Georges Barsac, Gabrielle, petite main auprès d’un grand couturier, va devenir une star de music-hall sous le nom de scène de Gaby Dery. A la fin, elle connaîtra non seulement un succès phénoménal, mais également le grand amour.

Un film qui donne également à voir des grandes pointures du du music-hall comme Joséphine Baker, Lila Nikolska, Stanisłava Velska ou les Tiller Girls.
