Read in Pravda:

At the Arlington International Film Festival (USA)  a unique film with famed actor Charlie Chaplin will be played to an audience. It is noteworthy that for many years the film was considered lost.

According to the organizers of the festival, the film “A Thief Catcher”, which apparently is one of the first works of Chaplin, was withdrawn in 1914. The film was removed by Keystone Studios and over many years it was considered lost.

“A Thief Catcher” was found only in 2009 thanks to the efforts of a specialist in the history of film, Paul Geruki, who bought the film on a sale of antiques in the state of Michigan.

A more detailed description is available at website of the Washington Post.
