Cell phone mystery in 1928 Chaplin film
By WENN.COM

A scene from Charlie Chaplin's silent movie The Circus has sparked a time-travel mystery among fans after one extra appears to be chatting on a cell phone.

The clip from the 1928 film has been posted online by Irish filmmaker George Clarke and begs the question did someone travel back in time to appear outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, while Chaplin was shooting the movie?

The woman in the scene is holding a black object to her ear and appears to be talking into it.

Clarke insists the video has not been manipulated in any way and he has consulted with experts about his find, which he has posted on YouTube.com for fans to check out.

The filmmaker has concluded the woman walking through the scene is from another era.

It would be interesting if they had cell phones back then, but from reading comments on the cnn.com article about this, some are speculating that it could have been a hearing aid the woman was holding

Ummmm, have they never seen someone holding the collar of their coat up against the side of their face to
break the wind? Appears to be 'cold weather' clothing' .........just saw the clip on tv last night. I remember my
dear old grandmother walking along downtown Halifax streets battling the cold wind off the harbor in just the same
way.

That's another possibility. I saw it on the news again this morning while sitting and waiting for my car to get serviced at the mechanics. The only thing is the lady was talking (not sure if it was to herself ... lol) and no one else was around her, if you look closely at her mouth the next time they show the video.
