“`Hundreds of Charlie Chaplin fans,  dressed as his Tramp character,  gathered at the silent film star’s former home in Switzerland,  marking his 128th birthday. Chaplin’s World Museum, which opened a year ago,  featured 662 folks sporting the star’s distinctive bowler hat and cane at the Manoir de Ban in Corsier-sur-Vevey, above Lake Geneva. This is considered a world record.

“`In its initial year, Chaplin’s World By Grévin has hosted visitors from all over the world. Folks from 75 nations have visited Chaplin’s final home,  and the Hollywood-style studio located in the grounds of the estate. The Museum has already welcomed close to 300,000 guests. And, the word-of-mouth of the experience has been universally positive.

“`The Manoir de Ban is where Chaplin lived his last 25 years; raised his children, wrote music, movie scripts, and contemplated his legacy, far from the glare of the Hollywood spotlight.


“`Charlie Chaplin died in 1977.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
