Parisian Pleasures

Parisian Pleasures

Parisian Pleasures (French: La revue des revues) is a 1927 French-German silent film directed by and starring Josephine Baker, André Luguet and Hélène Hallier. The film focuses on the Parisian nightlife of the time, showing various performances of the Jazz Age, including two by Baker, with the plot taking a backseat. The performances take place within several nightclubs in Montmartre, and feature scantily-clad exotic dancers, showgirls, and acrobats.


Gabrille Derisau is a down-on-her-luck seamstress with a dream of becoming a dance-hall star. She enters a contest aimed at finding the new Cinderella of Parisian nightclubs and ultimately wins. As her star is on the rise she develops a romantic interest with Georges Barsac, a fellow performer. But as their careers go in different directions, tensions begin to develop in their relationship.
