"An unseen Charlie Chaplin film was bought for a bargain on eBay." The best stories aren't the product of a writer's fantasy - they simply happen.

'tis a good story indeed. Charlie Chaplin is wonderful but I think Buster Keaton is more amusing.

Actually I'm not so interested in Charly Chaplin either. I just love to read such stories in the newspaper. I've never seen a film with Buster Keaton, but there's a lovely film in which Johnny Depp imitates him in a few scenes. Do you know "Benny and Joon"? It still makes me smile, although I've seen this film so many times.
