Travel to Paris, France as a Bahamian citizen: How fast can a visa be taken care of?

A friend is traveling to Paris, France to stay for 2-5 days. He's a Bahamian citizen, which seems to indicate he'll need a visa for sure. Here's the twist: he's en route, and may have only a day to try to get any paperwork taken care of. Does he stand a chance of getting a visa through, or should he turn back now? The US French Consulate does not give out visa information by phone, and I've trying contacting Customs and the Police at Charles De Gaulle Airport (+33 1 48 62 31 22). Unfortunately, I don't speak French, and the phone system seems to be unforgiving.

Short term mobile internet in France

How can I get pseudo-mobile internet in France for just two months? There are wifi hot spots all over but the prices seem outrageous, presumably the unlimited wifi is only for DSL customers? I'd happily tether to my N900 or buy a separate GSM modem. Any recommendations? It seems odd if Orange's Mobicarte the is the cheapest?

French 'Posting Pillars'

In pictures of Paris you often see tall, round posting pillars (my term) on the sidewalks on which are posted advertisements and announcements -- what are these posting pillars actually called -- the best English translation is preferred. Thanks.

What IS that film?

Name that film: A noble woman in 18th C. France dresses as a man. I seem to remember her wearing a uniform but am unsure if she's in the military. She sets something of a trend and other women begin to copy her. She meets a man. He doesn't initially know that she's a woman. A love interest develops. I probably saw it on HBO or the like sometime in the mid 80's. It was probably released around the same time.

Mediterranean holiday ideas...

So, my father, sister and I are planning a trip to Europe in mid-June. We need to work out quite where. I need to be able to fly in from London, the others to train or fly to wherever from Lyon. We need to go somewhere where we can stay for about 6 days, and there will be enough to entertain us there or in nearby town. I was wondering about Malta, my sister thought Genoa, my father thought St Tropez (our budget is not endless so perhaps not) Any suggestions?
