The first in a series of three stories set in and around Rye in East Sussex.
Written by Kellie Jackson and read by Serena Evans, this story is loosely based on Charlie Chaplin's visit to Rye.
Dot Buckle, proprietress of The Whistling Kettle, has heard a rumour that a film star is in town and rushes to The Mermaid Inn to see if it's true. When she arrives, not only does she have the fortune of spotting Charlie Chaplin alongside two other famous actors from Hollywood, but has an even greater surprise in store for her in the shape of a blast from the past.
