BERLIN– Hundreds of Charlie Chaplin fans impersonated his “Tramp” character have gathered at the quiet film star’s previous house in Switzerland, marking exactly what would have been his 128th birthday.

The Chaplin’s World museum, which opened a year back, stated 662 individuals sporting the star’s distinctive bowler hat and walking 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, composing music and film scripts and considering his tradition far from the glare of the Hollywood spotlight. He died in 1977.
