Mistinguett (1875 - 1956)

Jeanne Florentine Bourgeois studied theatre and singing before being engaged at the Casino de Paris, in 1885 and becoming Mistinguett. Playing at the Eldorado from 1897 to 1907, she established her stage persona with her comic repartees and her dancing moves. In 1909, she was teamed with Max Dearly at the Moulin Rouge then Maurice Chevalier, in 1912 at the Folies Bergères – the 'obsessive dancers' according to journalists began a ten year relationship. During World War I, Maurice Chevalier was wounded and a prisoner of the Germans, to help free her lover, Mistinguett therefore suggested to become a spy. From 1918 to 1925, she was the Casino de Paris's star and appeared in various silent films while she embodied, to the eyes of an international crowd, the ultimate Parisian, in competition with her rival, Josephine Baker. Mistinguett also was the charming speaker of romantic songs and words: 'A kiss may be a comma, a question or exclamation mark. Here are the essential punctuation marks every women should know.'
