Product Description:

A French author goes to North Africa to write a novel, but becomes distracted - then entranced - by a native girl whom he transforms into a "princess." Filmed in Tunisia. Based on a story by then-husband of Josephine Baker, Pepito Abatino.

Plot Synopsis:

The always enchanting Josephine Baker stars in this fascinating French musical.
An upper-class Parisian novelist, in need of some literary inspiration, visits Tunisia... and finds the lovely Alwina. The writer impulsively decides to bring the girl back to France where, after a few lessons in deportment, he will pass her off as Indian royalty.
His plan succeeds brilliantly, for very soon all of society has fallen at the feet of the exotic "Princess Tam Tam". But the author's wife resents Alwina and devises a plot to reveal the truth about the girl's identity...


Production Notes:

  • Presented in Association with George Eastman House Film Archive; released by Kino International.
