Thanks for the pictures classicalbang!

In the post where she's listening to a record, her outfit reminds me of something Nicolas Ghesquière would design for Balenciaga... the structured jacket with leather panels worn with leather shorts.

I have an interesting bit of 60's trivia here which includes her;

Long, long before MTV "invented" music videos in the very early 60's ... there used to be a jukebox type of contraption that showed short 3 minute 16MM color, musical films. The name of this thing was called "Scopitone" (pronounced Scope-eh-tone with the accent on the "tone".) and it was invented by the French. A couple of other companies copied them later ... Color Sonics, Cinebox/Colorama. Thanks to MTV and video in the 80's .... they are all now out of business.

A Scopitone: (source bedazzled.com)

Francoise Hardy was one of the first artists to record for Scopitone.

It cost $0.25 to watch a film which lasted from about 2 to 3 minutes each, just enough for one song (all songs used to be that short). Each Scopitone was loaded with 36 different films. You would usually find these in bars and lounges ... and they came to the US, too.

There were hundreds of films produced for Scopitone and you still see them around today on YouTube. Most are French but when Scopitone came to the US, they made films in Hollywood too. (an aside ... on film was filmed at the pool at the Mondrian Hotel (SkyBar) on Sunset in West Hollywood before it became a hotel.)


Here's a list that I got from a Scoptone site: scopitonearchive.com/ ... of all the songs she did for them:
Françoise Hardy "Tous les Garçons et les Filles" ("All the Boys and Girls") (A-137)
Françoise Hardy "Comme Tant d'Autres" ("Like All the Others") (A-153)
Françoise Hardy "Saurai-Je?" ("Shall I Know?") (A-163)
Françoise Hardy "Point" (GE-731)


Here's a sample of one of her Scopitone films (in pretty poor condition) ....Tous les Garçons et les Filles:

have you guys heard the new album yet? it is classic françoise...almost to the point where you feel you've been transported back definitely a favourite of mine this year. she proves yet again in light of so much influence how relevant she still is as an artist.

^I love this album so much! Pluie sans parapluie is my favourite one, so soft and dreamy.

Love all the shot of Françoise, too! So amazing.
