A rare Charlie Chaplin film thought to feature early attempts at animation will be put up for auction on 29th June. Entitled Charlie Chaplin in Zepped, the film shows the silent star bringing down a German Zeppelin aircraft and is believed to have been made to lift the spirits of the British troops. 

It's expected to fetch a 6 figure sum when it goes on sale at Bonhams next month. Fingers crossed it eventually ends up on YouTube so we can all check it out.
