Charlie Chaplin and the Zeppelin

A recent discovery, of a short wartime film showing Charlie Chaplin bringing down a Zeppelin is discused on the Daily Telegraph site, here.

The film mixes scenes of Chaplin with animation, and my own suspicion is that this was not put together by Chaplin himself, but by a British enthusiast eager to produce a morale-booster. From what I can gather, it combines shots from existing Chaplin films with custom-made animation. Skilful stuff – and I’d like to see it.
