The story of Josephine Baker takes us on a fascinating tour of 20th-century race relations on both sides of the Atlantic, yet it leads to no conclusion, and black girls in search of a role-model tend to look elsewhere. Part of her appeal is her startlingly unique appearance. Simply nobody has ever looked or acted like her. She fits no black stereotype. Nor does she look like any recognizable strain of Afro-American. I'd always heard she was half-white, but it seems that her paternity is unknown, and her contradictory claims on the subject don't do much to enlighten us. (We are tempted to imagine quite an exotic mix.) Her origins in sharply-segregated St. Louis, where she is said to have witnessed a lynching, do not seem to have left her embittered. Perhaps she had too much to give. There is a special innocence about that smile, and when she performs her cross-eyed gag, we are lifted into a strange pixie-world, all its own.

The Josephine Baker Story is a 1991 made-for-TV film that debuted on cable television network HBO. The film told the life of that of Josephine Baker, an African-American, who rose to popularity in France in the late-1920s with her "banana dance". In this dance, Baker wore only bananas on her bottom and went topless during most performances. Unlike most biographical films, The Josephine Baker Story deeply enters the personal life of Baker, rather than just her life in the public eye. The film starred Lynn Whitfield, Rubén Blades, and David Dukes; along with Louis Gossett, Jr., Craig T. Nelson, Kene Holliday, Vivian Bonnell, and Vivienne Eytle. The original music score was composed by Georges Delerue. The film was nominated for several awards.
