A long lost film featuring an appearance by Charlie Chaplin will be shown for first time in almost a century at a film festival in the United States.

The movie, A Thief Catcher, is a 10-minute comedy made in 1914 and discovered last year at an antiques sale. Tom Donkin reports.

Please note, only a still shot from A Thief Catcher can be seen in this video. Other clips include: The Gold Rush, courtesy Warner Home Video and The Dictator, courtesy Warner Home Video.
