Michel Polnareff on TV: Vient de paraitre 7 May 1966

Michel Polnareff’s first TV appearance was on 7 May 1966 on Vient de paraître (2ème chaîne, dir Janine Guyon), performing La poupée qui fait non.

The show starts out with an interview with a rather moist looking Michel Simon (Boudu saved from drowning in his own sweat maybe?) discussing his record Michel Simon interprète Kafka et Courteline:

And then I’m pretty sure the presenter Frantz Priollet refers to Polnareff as Georges Polnareff (!) and says this Georges guy told him it took one year for his hair to grow so long.  Anyway, here’s Michel Polnareff:

Next up was Jennifer – not a bad song Mais qu’est-ce que ça peut vous faire, and not a bad performance, but coming after La poupée qui fait non it feels just a bit tame really.  Jennifer’s wearing a lovely dress for a girl half her age – but what do I care, uh?:

Great eye make up though:

The show closes with Enrico Macias performing Je t’aimerai pour deux – promises, promises, Enrico, and stop looking at me like that!:

It’s a pleasant enough song but again just a little subdued.  Highlight of the show?  Polnareff, of course.  Here’s my favourite screen grab from the show:

More Polnareff on TV stuff soon.


About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
