Photo: Charlie Chaplin Hollywood Wax Museum Pigeon Forge

I don't think many are alive that remember Charlie Chaplin at his prime (or decline) but most people don't realize that Chaplin was shunned from Hollywood for the later years of his life due to being a target of one of America's versions of the Red Scare. I didn't realize he was rather short at 5' 5".

McCarthyism at it's worst.
Seems that the 'looney" in the White House is re-igniting this terrible
period of US history.
