The Josephine Baker Story
Starring: Lynn Whitfield, Ruben Blades, David Dukes,
Craig T. Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr.
Director: Brian Gibson
Outrageous, shocking, sensational-Josephine Baker (Lynn Whitfield) was born poor, but achieved fame and fortune
through her sizzlingly exotic and erotic performances. Starting life on the American Vaudeville circuit, success
takes Josephine to Paris where her semi-nude dancing causes and international sensation. Through her marriages to an
Italian pseudo-count (Ruben Blades) and orchestra leader (David Dukes), to her bond with army officer Sidney Williams
(Louis Gossett, Jr.), Josephine's life is a roller coaster ride of love and rejection from both her lovers and her country.
But semi-nude, or head-to-toe in sequins; in battle fatigues or rags-her beauty and ambition ensured that Josephine Baker
will always be remembered as the first, and possibly most loved, truly international star.
