that looks like Charlie Chaplin looked like in his movies. Isn't a great town that would think of making a statue of him?

I've never reviewed a statue before! It's bang on the main drag in Waterville and has a semi-circle of stone seating around it. Painted up, it could pass as his reincarnation, the details are so precise. Dig out one of his movies when you get...More

A comic of a century ago. He visited the place because his daughter had a house here. He acted with a lot of mime because the soud wasn't attached in that time.

Charlie Chaplin used to vacation there, and if I recall correctly, we were told that his daughter still owns a house there. Because of that, they also have a yearly film festival of his works, hence the statue.
