"RĂªves" from Princesse Tam-Tam
1935. Josephine Baker as Aouina gets on the sailboat that Georges Peclet as Dar is sailing on, and sings a song about her dreams. 


"Pour Moi Il n'y a q'un Homme a Paris" from Zouzou
1934. Josephine Baker as Zouzou enters backstage after returning from the police station while Marcel Valle as M. Trompe, Palau as Saint-Levy, Adrienne Tenkel as backstage maid, and Roger Blin as stage manager are in a huff, just in time for her number "For me there's only one man in Paris."  *It's in French so enjoy the beauty of the language!
