Film Notes

Mistinguett and Max Dearly danced the original Valse chaloupée in the summer of 1908 in the Revue du Moulin, and at almost the same time Maurice Mouvet danced it with his partner Leona at Maxim’s. The number is animated by an explicit eroticism and violence: we see an apache pimp mistreating a prostitutegigolette during a quarrel. Mistinguett appeared in several films of the 1910s and also had a long career in variety. (We are hoping that the film accompaniment will be the original score composed by Charles Dubourg, based on themes from Offenbach).
