Tolstoy goes chautauqua

June 14, 2010 § Leave a comment

A thought for another day:

“Count Ilya Tolstoy worked back and forth between summer chautauqua engagements and guest appearances in silent films throughout much of the 1920s.”

(John Tapia, Circuit Chautauqua: from rural education to popular entertainment in early twentieth century America, 1997, p. 197)
