A Californian man spends $50 at a flea market on an antique lighter and a piece of Hollywood history.
It is engraved with "Harry Warner" on one side and "UFATone" on the other.
Harry Warner is one of the Warner brothers of the eponymous studio.
UFATone was Germany's largest studio and Hollywood's biggest competition.
What is the connection between Harry Warner, known for his anti-fascist commitment, and a studio that became the propaganda tool of the Nazi party?
