Lost Chaplin Debut In Keystone Cops Film To Screen This Weekend

A lost CHARLIE CHAPLIN clip from an early Keystone Cops film will be screened for the first time since 1914 at a comedy festival in Arlington, Virginia this weekend (17-18Jul10).
Few silent film buffs realised Chaplin once played a clumsy cop at the beginning of his film career - and even historian Paul Gierucki was stunned when he caught sight of the actor during a three minute clip of A Thief Catcher.
Gierucki bought the 16-millimeter print at an auction in Michigan last year (09).
