Hi - yes, Charlie did write Smile. I'm not sure when but it was in one of his movies, either City Lights or Modern Times -- the 30's (gees, can't remember at the moment). I, too, was shocked many years ago when I first learned that Charlie wrote this song (not sure if he did both the words and lyrics?). Maybe, some of the other readers can comment!
