Charlie Chaplin & Sergei Eisenstein “playing” tennis

In 1930, Charlie Chaplin & Sergei Eisenstein got together to “play” tennis, literally. Eisenstein  spent considerable time with Charlie Chaplin, who recommended that Eisenstein meet with a sympathetic benefactor in the person of American socialist author Upton Sinclair, who would later arrange for Eisenstein to go to Mexico.
