I found a few clips on YouTube from her 1935 film "Princesse Tam Tam"...

Singing "Sous le Ciel d'Afrique" (Under the African Sky):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jB4HWLQbWB4

Singing "Le Chemin du Bonheur" (The Way to Happiness?):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYDLsIVppk8

And a very short clip of her dancing from her early "La Danse Sauvage" for "La Revue Negre":

Great thread! I love her style, I don't have a source for this information but apparently she had crates of lemons imported and she would bathe in lemons (probably sliced in water) to keep her skin tone even.

She is so captivating. She's the kind of person that lights up any room they are in

There was a really nice exhibit about Josephine at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC that I saw last year. Josepine was so cute.
