The European Theater: Edith Piaf & Maurice Chavalier
Episode date - August 26, 2016
For our second installment on Europe’s influence, we move our attention to France.
Before the war, Maurice Chevalier represented America’s perspective of European charm and class. He status as a film star made his songs universally known, and he had a profound influence on generations that followed, particularly Edith Piaf.
