Gracie Mansion, New York City, April 6th, 1972

Mayor John Lindsay presents Charlie with the keys to the city as well as the Handel Medallion, the city's highest award for the performing arts. Lindsay called Charlie "a great citizen of the world." Always the comic, when a photographer yelled for Charlie to "smile," he shot back: "I'm afraid my teeth would fall out," cupping his hands under his chin to catch their fall.
