Your favorite wacky Felix story
« on: March 24, 2005, 12:28:45 PM »
Felix was an interesting character, and very entertaining and funny at times. What are your favorite hilarious tales of Felix's antics? Mine are the time he bought the polar bear with Ella and planned to take it back to St. P and walk it down the street like a dog, and the time he replaced his Dad's friends cigarettes with trick firework ones during the 1905 revolution and they thought an attempt had been made on their lives.

I think my favorite story was the one where Felix SR. walked in on his son dressed up in drag and I think he was ordering a servant to do something, I can't remember the details. But I do know I laughed when I read it.

In his old age, having dinner with the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, wearing so much makeup that it cracked and fell onto his plate!

Mine is when he went to the most exclusive restaurant in St. Petersburg, in his youth, wearing his mother's best gown and huge strand of expensive pearls including La Pelegrina (I think with GD Dmitri, but can't recall off hand for sured).  He was twirling the pearls and making a scene when the string broke and hundreds of perfectly matched pearls went skittering all over the wooden floor of the place, with the waiters diving under tables trying to gather them all back up.

My favorite Felix story:

The time he dressed up in drag and went to the opera, looking so beautiful that he attracted the attention of that famous ladies' man, Edward VII.

In the 1950's Felix went back to Russia as a guest of the Soviet government.  At one point his soviet hosts reminded him that in Russia, there is no statute of limitations for murder -- they could still arrest him for killing Rasputin!  Wouldn't that have been the irony or ironies.

I never heard anything about them being there, but I did see, I believe in Greg's book, that Noel Coward was quoted as saying this happened in his presence, and how pathetically Felix tried to hold onto his youth and beauty.

Thanks everyone for your stories! :)

I read it in a book about the Duchess, I'll have to dig it out. The two couples were friendly,And another  story was Wallis and Irina calling each other by their titles.
