The record was set to mark Chaplin’s birthday and to celebrate the first year of “Chaplin’s Worldexternal link”. The museum devoted to the London-born comic actor, director and composer is located in a 14-hectare park and occupies the mansion where the Chaplin family lived the last 25 years of Charlie Chaplin’s life.
