FRENCH STAGE ACTRESS AND DANCER MLLE DERMINY: PRETTY WOMAN WITH ANTENNAS (REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

derminy

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of French stage actress and dancer Mlle. Derminy. I am unsure of her first name but she is listed in a number of sources as Marthe Derminy, who was an early film actress. The two performers may, or may not be, the same individual. Take a look at the headpiece that Mlle Derminy is wearing in this photograph. She looks like she has antennas coming out of the top of her head. It is as if she just walked out of a space ship. She is a pretty woman and is posed in relatively risque fashion. Derminy was photographed by many of the most celebrated photographers of her era. I have seen portraits of her by Reutlinger, Walery, and Stebbins. This postcard portrait was published by Societe Industrielle de Photograpie which was located in Rueil, France.

  1. Reblogged this on Rogues & Vagabonds.

  2. Ha! Ha! The Emmy fashion police were talking about all the dresses with chains–for straps, etc. Looks like this was nothing new.

  3. That is a mouse… Antenna…. 🙂 Look at the ears…

  4. Gerald, you are right! At first I’d hope it was a cat, but on closer inspection that nose gave it away.
