The movie Moulin Rouge is on my list of favourites, as are all things French.
At a garage sale today I spied this large, heavy, framed board covered with old French papers. Imagine my surprise when the owner told me it was a prop from the movie Moulin Rouge and I could have it for $5. I couldn't get the cash out fast enough.
OK, all you cynics ... I know it's only a piece of MDF painted to look old, that the majority of the papers are mostly copies, but I adore it ... and look at the white piece in the centre.
It's the "order of acts" performing at the Moulin Rouge in the movie.
Scene 4 : Madmoiselle Satine : the character played by Nicole Kidman ... provenance ?
I adore a little touch of 1890s gay Paree, it's going on a wall here ... if I can find a spot!
Ahhh ... if only the gorgeous Ewan McGregor had been holding the board ... Ooooo La La!
