Today in Princestory: Girls and Boys

"Girls and Boys" was shot in Nice, France.

Here's the call sheet. It's interesting that Susannah wasn't on the sheet, but since she and Prince were dating, she could just be his +1, opposed to an actual employee/band member.

It was Europe in the 80s. I'm sure a general extras call would have attracted a largely white adult crowd. I'm sure "diverse" is now the standard PC term.

Casting calls generally have character descriptors. Otherwise it would have been awkward for Charles Bronson walking in trying to land the lead role for "Shaft".

My fave song on the album. Why does everyone else need an hour more for makeup than Prince and Jerome?

Because there are more of them. They're staggered in and likely a limited amount of people doing the makeup on the band. It's not that the band needs more makeup, it's that the makeup artists need more time to filter people through their chairs.

It's possible this is a different video shoot plan. The part about a scene of Alexa struggling to get away from an older date, I don't remember happening.

Also the shoot location isn't the same as the movie scene?? Unless they are different entrances

A very bohemian artist historic space picked for the Girls & Boys video as well as the movie.
Very fitting. Another piece of how Christopher (not a gigolo) but an open 2 love artist in a community of his fellow artists, would have been a perfect direction for Under the Cherry Moon.

Frequented by Pablo Picasso, who had a studio nearby, in 1914, when the English painter Nina Hamnett arrived in Montparnasse, on her first evening the smiling man at the next table at La Rotonde graciously introduced himself as "Modigliani, painter and Jew". They became good friends, Hamnett later recounting how she once borrowed a jersey and corduroy trousers from Amedeo Modigliani, then went to La Rotonde and danced in the street all night.

During this creative era, proprietor Libion allowed starving artists to sit in his café for hours, nursing a ten-centime cup of coffee and looked the other way when they broke the ends from a baguette in the bread basket. If an impoverished painter couldn't pay their bill, Libion would often accept a drawing, holding it until the artist could pay. As such, there were times when the café's walls were littered with a collection of artworks which today might make the curators of the world's greatest museums "drool with envy".

Unlike many establishments in Montparnasse, La Rotonde has retained much of its bohemian charm and continues in operation to this day as a popular spot for the Parisian Intelligentsia.

Life in the cafe was depicted by several of the artists and writers that frequented the cafe, including Diego Rivera, Federico Cantú, Ilya Ehrenburg, and Tsuguharu Foujita, who depicted a fight in the cafe in his etching A la Rotonde of 1925. A later 1927 version, Le Café de la Rotonde, was part of the Tableaux de Paris of 1929.

Picasso portrayed two diners in the cafe in his painting In the cafe de la Rotonde in 1901; as did the Russian artist Alexandre Jacovleff aka Alexander Yevgenievich Yakovlev in the similarly titled In the Cafe de la Rotonde. Despite its title, Picasso's painting was created before the opening of La Rotonde; its setting is another café called L'Hippodrome.

I don't really know that it would've made any sense in the scope of the movie. Why would a gigolo have a band?

I think the better part for them in the movie would've been at Mary's birthday party, as the house band. However, maybe house band members at the bar in the beginning would've been something.

Also, perhaps that dancer in the video is supposed to be Alexa, but the whole storyline or idea ditched if someone decided "Alexa de Paris" wouldn't be a video.

Just as a note, I believe Les Salons De La Rotonde was the exterior for La Pavillion. It's on Google Earth. 43°42'15.63"N 7°19'55.70"E Prince vault notes that place. But the other location is noted as Studio de la Victorine for interior, which is a studio lot, it seems. The La Rotonde you noted could be another location in general, but not for the shoot. There's more than one "lounge" in the region.

I've always stated, in this thread as well, that Christopher should not have been a gigolo. He was just copying Morris Day & Jerome from Purple Rain, because people loved the characters. There was some 'redemption' in Purple Rain with Morris Day. After this, when Morris stays back and rethinks things on the wall. That spoke volumes.

There was none really with Christopher in UTCM, his character was unsympathetic.

I agree, that is another scene where it would make sense if Christopher and his bandmates were hired to play for her birthday bash. It doesn't make sense for Christopher and Tricky to just be able to walk into a property/event like that non invited.
,
I love the beginning An Honest Man scene. that was perfect. It was sex. If he had some of Clare Fishers musicians with him in that space, dressed in reflection of Christopher, would have been cool. The scene where Christopher and Mary dance at the Venus de Milo could have had the band as well.
