World Tour Revisited: Out & about in Biarritz, September 1931

With Russian opera singer, Feodor Chaliapin, and his daughter, who were visiting Biarritz at the same time as Charlie.  Both men were invited to a party given by Mischa Elman in St. Jean de Luz where they engaged in a role reversal exercise in which Charlie sang a group of Basque folksongs, then Chaliapin did a pantomime routine about a girl trying to tie herself into a corset.
