This video is the eighth of a ten-part series that chronicles the interesting times between 1890 and World War II, when Montparnasse in Paris was the epicenter of the bohemian art scene. Writers, musicians, and artists lived in the city's old section and frequented its many cafes. In the 1930s, the Bobino Theatre was a popular haunt of the art community, whose productions reflected the mores of the artists who frequented it. The video presents recordings of singers who performed there, as well as recollections with some Montparnasse artists.
