No, I haven’t forgotten about this series. August 1936 was a very slow month for Chaplin but things pick up toward the end of the month and into September. I apologize for not posting the following on its anniversary.
Monday, August 17th: Charlie and Paulette attend a concert by conductor Leopold Stokowski at the Hollywood Bowl.

Evidently the crowd was so large that Charlie and Paulette had to schlep to the Bowl from another street instead of being dropped off in their car at the front door (gasp):
|Los Angeles Times, August 23rd, 1936|
Coming up: Chaplin wires his studio for sound, and makes an announcement about another film project.
