Plans For Charlie Chaplin Museum

The family of late Hollywood legend CHARLIE CHAPLIN will open a museum in his name in a bid to have the star acknowledged in modern day popular culture. The silent star's son Michael hopes the tourist attraction will see Chaplin receive equal posthumous praise as Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. He says, "It's not a lucrative estate and that's what we are trying to change. "There are still millions of fans and he's part of cinema history but Charlie Chaplin is not part of modern day pop culture in the way of Marilyn Monroe or Elvis. "We have to find a way to market him. That's why we are creating the Chaplin Museum and releasing his restored high-definition films on DVD." Chaplin died on Christmas Day 1977.
