Feodor Chaliapin Jr. - Rotten Tomatoes

Feodor Chaliapin Jr.



French actor Feodor Chaliapin, Jr. is the son of the world famous operatic bass whose name he bears. Young Chaliapin, tired of living under his father's fame, finally left Paris so he could find his own fortune. In Hollywood, he began as a bit-player in silent films. Soon he became known as an excellent character actor who appeared in such films as For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943). Chaliapin moved to Italy following the end of WW II and began appearing in films there. He later returned to Hollywood and had a comeback when he was cast into the role of a deadly monk in The Name of the Rose (1986). Originally, John Huston was to play the role, but he fell ill. Chaliapin then appeared in Stanley and Iris as Robert De Niro's father, and may be best remembered as the looney dog-walking grandfather in Moonstruck (1987).
