Today on TCM: Princess Tam Tam (1935)

Josephine Baker - Princess Tam TamAs part of the Race and Hollywood: Arab Images on Film series, TCM is airing Princess Tam Tam (1935) tonight at 8:00 pm EST. Through the prism of academic and feminist discourse, Josephine Baker equals more than the sum of her acting, dancing, and singing talents. Take a tour through some of the academic examinations of the politics of Josephine Baker and watch Princess Tam Tam. Setting aside polemics, how does Baker stack up against Hollywood’s greatest actresses? Do the academics go too far, or not far enough, in their external readings of her career?
