The Fireman of the Follies-Bergere1928

  • 3.7
THE FIREMAN OF THE FOLLIES BERGERE is strangely undocumented but was probably made to promote Josephine Baker's wild revue "Vents de Folies" in 1927-1928 at Paris' celebrated music hall after her 1925 triumph in the Negro revue at the Theatre des Champs-Elysees. The Folies emphasized fine costumes, dancers, stage effects and naked women. "Ah, the naked women," said manager Paul Derval, "if I ever tried to get rid of them, I might as well close the place down."
