12-Minute Standing Ovation

12-Minute Standing Ovation

Charlie Chaplin openly pleaded against fascism, war, capitalism, and WMDs (Weapons of Mass Destruction) in his movies. He was slandered by the FBI and banned from the USA in '52. When he was offered an Honorary Academy Award in 1972, he hesitantly returned and received a 12-minute standing ovation; the longest in the Academy’s history.
