Charlie Chaplin, one of the great Hollywood legends, spent the last 25 years of his life living in Switzerland where a brand new museum has just opened in his honor. It pays tribute to 'one of the most surprising artists of the 20th century.'
"A day without laughter is a day wasted," was one of Chaplin's favorite mottos. And his movies make audiences laugh — and think — even 40 years after his death, on December 25, 1977.
He shook up the silent film world by playing the tramp and was banned from the US for two decades. Now a museum is opening at Charlie Chaplin's former villa in rural Switzerland - complete with a cinema.
