SIREN OF THE TROPICS

Here is a fantastic clip of Josephine Baker from the 1927 silent film La Sirène des Tropiques. Check out the source post, on Dangerous Minds, for a brief bio on the piece. And thanks to Lou Curtiss of Folk Arts Rare Records for pointing the way to this. . . .

  1. She is riveting! Thanks for posting it. I wish they could have spliced together music recorded during that time period though. The soundtrack sounds so "new."

    1. Isn't she though! I tracked down the whole movie at my local library so hopefully will be able to see it in a few days. . . .
