    Biography

    Mistinguett (real name Jeanne Bourgeois) was a French actress and singer, born on April 5, 1875 & dead on January 5, 1956. The flamboyant Mistinguett was the consummate performer and the unrivaled Queen of the French Music-Hall. Her career lasted over fifty years.

    Jeanne Bourgeois made her debut as Mistinguett at the Casino de Paris in 1895, and appeared also in shows as the Folies-Bergères, Moulin Rouge and Eldorado. Her risqué routines captivated Paris and she went on to become the most popular French entertainer of her time and the highest paid female entertainer in the world. In 1919, her legs were insured for the then astounding amount of 500,000 francs.

    She had a long relationship with the much younger Maurice Chevalier but it was for other more torrid love affairs that she became legendary.
