Lap Steel Russian style

Scene from old Soviet movie "До свиданья, мальчики" (1964). John Dunker (real name Ivan Ivanovich Sokolov) was very popular performer in late 1930's. Lady playing piano accompaniment and audience are very typical for that time. This was the only image of Hawaiian music I knew for years, just had no idea about Sol Hoopii, pedal triple neck steels etc.
