Ray Charles In Paris (1984)

'84 DM Pathé

On 29 and 30 October 1984 Ray Charles performed at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, where he was interviewed for Pathé by Michel Jonasz. The Gaumont Pathé archives keep a “3:29” reel, also including footage of Ray performing Georgia, and a cassette of rushes (ID# 124, 124 Rush); including that footage the reel appears to be close to 5 minutes long.

Stills from the Gaumont Pathé archives.

Which frame in the Nancy clip is exactly the same as the 5th frame in the strip that I have included in the article above?

Hmm, I'm not sure what you mean... Which 3-minute video did you see? Are you stating that the footage of Georgia that is kept in the Pathé archives was actually filmed in Nancy?

Are you sure? I do not think so (I could watch that 3-minute video)

Dear John, 1. Ah, I had already spotted that great photo, and shared it on the Chronology 1984 page: raycharlesvideomuseum.blogspot.nl/2010/08/ray-charles-is-in-town-chronology-1984.html I've just added your name to it, plus a link to the URL that you've quoted. Are you okay with that? 2. No, unfortunately I don't have a copy of that footage. All the Pathé archives have to offer online is 5 thumbnail-stills on this page: gaumontpathearchives.com/indexPopup.php?urlaction=doc&id_doc=87121&rang=2# (click the "imageur" button). Brgrds, BOB
