Dance Josie, Dance
From "Princess Tam Tam"
This Josephine Baker dance clip is taken from the French film "Princess Tam Tam" released in 1935.
In this scene Lucie (Germaine Aussey) the wife of a frustrated writer attempts to publicly humiliate her husband Max and Alwina (Josephine Baker) a Tunisian girl whom he has taught social educate and presents as a princess. Plying the 'princess' with alcohol Lucie's plan nearly works when Alwina, unable to resist exotic music, joins a large staged dance number embarrassing Max. However, when the music stops he soon realizes that the entire audience is applauding to provide her a standing ovation.
