Trail-blazing African-American striptease dancer Josephine Baker found fame and fortune in 1920s France, where she fled after censorship and intolerance in the U.S. proved to be too much for her. While she was there, Josephine starred in Siren of the Tropics (1927), a comedy-drama in which Régina Dalthy plays a Parisian who sends her goddaughter’s fiancé Andre (Pierre Batcheff) to the Antilles so she can marry him herself. Once on the Caribbean island, Andre saves a native girl named Papitou (Josephine Baker) from being assaulted and she becomes devoted to him. Since she plays an island native, Josephine has every excuse to bare her brown bombers, which she does three separate times in vivid sepia-tone. Everything old really is nude again!
