World Tour Revisited: Leftovers

September 1931 marked the halfway point of Chaplin's 18-month world tour. I thought I would take this post to look back over the past 9 months with some photos that didn't make into my original World Tour Revisited posts.

    1. I know! I was thinking how fashion was a lot more daring then. I thought I saw a picture of Charlie wearing Beetlejuice pants on here somewhere.
