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.
