Rare Charlie Chaplin movie bought on eBay for £3.20 could sell for thousands

Doesn't everyone who uses eBay dream that one day they will find a real bargain? Well, collector Morace Park got more than he bargained for when he bought a film reel on eBay for just £3.20 in 2009 because he liked the look of the tin.

It turned out to be a rare film, Charlie Chaplin in Zepped. Indeed, it is so rare that it could sell for a six-figure sum at auction this month.

The movie, thought to be the only surviving copy, shows Chaplin bringing down a German Zeppelin aircraft.
