Princess Tam Tam & Zou Zou
A young Bedouin girl, Alwina (Josephine Baker), becomes the object of desire and inspiration for an idealistic French writer, Max (Albert Prejean). Max intends to write a book about the exotic Alwina, as well as molding her into a sophisticated, alluring woman. He brings Alwina back to Paris, presenting her as an Indian princess, and immediately sets off fireworks with his wife -- who is not impressed with her husband's dalliance. The city, on the other hand, is delighted by Alwina. As children, Zouzou (Josphine Baker) and Jean (Jean Gabin) performed together in a circus. Onstage, they were falsely billed as brother and sister, but in truth Zouzou harbored a secret love for her costar. As an adult, she now works as a laundress, and it seems as if her showbiz days are over. But everything changes when Jean helps land her a spot dancing at a Paris theater. Zouzou rockets to stardom, even as Jean's romance with her friend Claire (Yvette Lebon) leaves her lovelorn.
