This is “Princesse Tam Tam”  with Josephine Baker. You can also find it online, although there are no subtitles. And thanks to glcrumpacker for the suggestion.

If you would like to request a mystery movie, drop me a line.

“Princesse Tam Tam” Part 1
”Princesse Tam Tam” Part 2
”Princesse Tam Tam” Part 3
Documentary on Josephine Baker


Last week, I opened the request line for mystery movies. I received several interesting responses, including this one from glcrumpacker:

Here is our homme de mystère pour Lundi.


Monday’s mystery fellow has a mystery ami and here he is.

Please congratulate Mike Hawks for identifying our mystery chap. Benito has identified our mystery film and cast, but he has good reason to recognize them in light of the individual who requested it. (Ahem).

And for Jeudi….

Please congratulate Mike Hawks for identifying our mystery movie and cast.

And fear not, tomorrow will be our leading lady, whom everyone will recognize.



And for Friday, our (not) mysterious leading lady.

Please congratulate Mike Hawks for identifying Thursday’s mystery woman.

  1. Charles Kjelland says:

    A young Pat Hingle?


  2. Benito says:

    sure looks like Albert Prejean, seen lately in PRINCESS TAM TAM


  3. Mike Hawks says:

    Albert Prejean. Possibly from UNDER THE ROOFS OF PARIS.


  4. Chrisbo says:

    pierre Fresnay?


  5. Gary Martin says:

    A VERY young Jean Gabin.


  6. Ed says:

    Is that Bob Burns?

    Jean Galland from PRINCESS TAM-TAM.


  8. Jenny M says:

    Mady Christians


  9. Mike Hawks says:

    Germaine Aussey.


  10. Gary Martin says:

    Josephine Baker.


  11. Gary Martin says:

    I see a fez in the background so this must be Princesse Tam Tam.


  12. Mary Mallory says:

    Josephine Baker today.


  13. Mary Mallory says:

    PRINCESS TAM TAM. Albert Prejean Monday, perhaps Robert Armoux Tuesday, and Germaine Aussey yesterday.


  14. My research using Google Images brought up a really strange juxtaposition of Friday’s star, Josephine Baker, and modern Bikini models. My guess: Princess Tam Tam, 1935.


  15. dewey webb says:

    Sacrebleu! It’s Josephine Baker in Zouzou!


  16. william says:

    “Princesse Tam Tam”, Josephine Baker


  17. Pat van Hartesveldt says:

    Even I know this one: Josephine Baker


  18. LC says:

    Princess Tam Tam w/Josephine Baker, Albert Prejean, Jean Galland, Germaine Aussey


  19. Mike Hawks says:

    Josephine Baker our leading lady makes a dramatic appearance.


  20. Josephine Baker…Zouzou 1934


  21. Lee Ann says:

    Well, I guess it must be Josephine Baker, but I’m none the wiser as to her fellow artistes and the nom de cinema. (Please excuse my broken English…I’m a Pittsburgh immigrant.)

    Josephine Baker


  23. mandymarie20 says:

    I should have guessed Princess Tam Tam. I watched it just last week on TCM


    • lmharnisch says:

      That’s what I get for canceling TCM. Just when I think it’s 80% repeats it airs something I don’t have. (It does seem like 80% repeats, though, I must say).
