The Josephine Baker Story


Watch The Josephine Baker Story (1991) using Stremio

I would like to recommend to everyone the director's version, extended by more than twenty minutes, of additional scenes, which gives a fuller picture of the film and in an interesting way explains some issues completely omitted in the cinema release. The Josephine Baker Story is by far the best online movie build up I've ever seen. I sat for a long time after I ended watching The Josephine Baker Story, reflecting on my life. The Josephine Baker Story filled me with difficult to explain energy, got me so immersed in it. An movie highly valued for me. I had the honor of watching the wonderful show from Brian Gibson last time. You can watch it online here on this website and add your own subtitles if you are not native english speaker....

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Josephine Baker grows up poor. She starts to display her talents on the American Vaudeville circuit in 1917. Unhappy with the treatment of African-Americans in her homeland, she travels to Paris and finds success as an exotic dancer and cabaret singer loved by the Europeans. Her manager, an Italian pseudo-count, decides to have her return to Broadway, and she fails miserably. However, she remains a strong, outspoken person who soon takes her show on the road and turn heads. Outrageous, shocking, sensational - Josephine Baker will always be remembered as the first, and possibly most loved, truly international star.... Show more
