Delattre, Paris "Féerie de Paris was such a hit that the box office of the Casino de Paris had to be enlarged. The theme of the revue was a tour of Paris monuments led by Mistinguett wearing a six-foot high Eiffel Tower of a costume. Van Caulaert could only fit part of it into this design, the rest tumbling outside of the frame. The poster produced for the enduring success of the show's run "d'après the previous year's original design certainly doesn't hint at the fact that Mistinguett was already 64 at the time of the performance. This is the smaller format.
