Hundreds dressed as Charlie Chaplin’s ‘Tramp’ gather in Switzerland



A crowd of Charlie Chaplin look-alikes congregate at the star’s former home to mark what would have been his 128th birthday.
BERLIN—Hundreds of Charlie Chaplin fans dressed as his “Tramp” character have gathered at the silent-film star’s former home in Switzerland, marking what would have been his 128th birthday.
The Chaplin’s World museum, which opened a year ago, said 662 people sporting the star’s distinctive bowler hat and cane gathered Sunday at the Manoir de Ban in Corsier-sur-Vevey, above Lake Geneva.
The Manoir de Ban is where Chaplin lived his last 25 years, raising children, writing music and movie scripts and contemplating his legacy far from the glare of the Hollywood spotlight. He died in 1977. Charlie Chaplin fans gathered outside the star's former home at the Manoir de Ban to celebrate what would have been his 128th birthday.   (LAURENT GILLIERON / THE ASSOCIATED PRESS)
