Chaplin at a bullfight in San Sebastian, August 1931


Harry d'Arrast and May Reeves are seated next to Charlie on the right. This was Chaplin's first bullfight, and probably his last. Find out why here: World Tour Revisited: Charlot at a Bullfight (from my World Tour series. I have updated this piece since I first posted it two years ago, including Harry d'Arrast's description of Charlie being handed an ear from one of the dead bulls.)

  1. So happy to know Charlie found bullfighting to be barbaric, I would have been shocked if he had enjoyed it
