Sélection de Lundi: William Sailly


According to some comments on the net, today’s pick is „très jolie“, even „sublime“, and perhaps it’s going to be your guilty pleasure, too. My elder sister tells me that 1975 was a hot year: You could be a teen idol with a bargain haircut, Woolworth pyjama shirt, and a boof-ta beach promenade drama tune combining dernier cru denim fashion with foot fetishism („Toi ma princesse aux pieds nus“). William Sailly, who had played the Apostle Peter in the original French version of Jesus Christ Superstar, didn’t only win the Rose d’Or d’Antibe for his Princess in Blue Jeans, but also sold more than half a million copies. Sailly died in 2003, and perhaps someone recalled the immortal last line of Raoul Walsh’s The Roaring Twenties at his funeral: „Once he was a big shot.“
