The Fireman of the Follies Bergere - 1928

The Fireman of the Follies Bergere was a French silent movie released in 1928. According to one of three plot summaries on IMDb,

A short film produced in 1928 to promote the Follies Bergeres. The fireman on duty at the Folies reels out of the theatre, dazzled by all the naked women hes seen. Everywhere he looks, people are transformed into nude showgirls; the band in a club, the patrons in a bar, even his fellow firemen at the fire station doing group exercises become naked women doing knee-bends. On the way there, he descends into a Metro station, where he finds Josephine Baker (not naked, but wearing a short skirt and bra) sweeping the platform. She does one of her gangling comic dances for his benefit.

The entire film is available for viewing on YouTube. Note: The video is age restricted..
