New scenes of the Little Tramp
So a lost Charlie Chaplin film has been purchased on eBay for £3.20? Well, sort of. It seems that the amusingly titled Zepped – snaffled by an Englishman named Morace Park – is a propaganda piece cobbled together from old footage by the Essanay film company after Chaplin had left that studio. So it’s an interesting artefact, but not quite an undiscovered masterpiece by the great man.
