Time Traveller Caught on 1928 Charlie Chaplin Film

This short film is about a piece of footage I (George Clarke) found behind the scenes in Charlie Chaplins film 'The Circus'. Attending the premiere at Manns Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA - the scene shows a large woman dressed in black with a hat hiding most of her face, with what can only be described as a mobile phone device - talking as she walks alone.

I have studied this film for over a year now - showing it to over 100 people and at a film festival, yet no-one can give any explanation as to what she is doing.

My only theory - as well as many others - is simple... a time traveler on a mobile phone. See for yourself and feel free to leave a comment on your own explanation or thoughts about it.

    That's definitely a communication device she's holding in her hand.
    Questions are... Is she communicating with someone in the same "time" or is it somewhat like
    calling back to the future about what's happening? What kind of device is this?
    How was it powered?

    I don't think it's a cell phone / mobile phone in the way we know it. They must have had some
    big antennaes standing around to establish a connection. Functioning as a repeater to strengthen
    signals. But who knows?

    I believe it... I have always thought the the government was able to time travel.This explains why all ancient civilizations recorded the same thing over time about "flying saucers".

    I think a clue to this is the type of "phone" this is not the first cell phone ever invented, it looks more like the ones we use today...So possibly you could find this person

    If she is talking on a cell phone, who is she talking to? There were a number of wireless devices dating back to around 1850. Stubblefield demonstrated in 1902, Tesla in the 1890's, and many others as well with radio as well as solar light transmission divices. There was no NSA then, but many were kept from the public domain for any number of reasons. Vidio phone was demonstrated in 1927! In any case you have made a good find as she (he?) is likely speaking to someone.Additionally, time travel is not as rare as most think. The paradoxical componant is beyond "frame of reference" for almost everyone confined to 3-space and as such tends to pass unseen.

    Maybe she had a toothache, and was talking to herself because she is crazy!

    I've seen vids and pics like this a few times. And I've read explanations that vary from time travel to Reptilians. The best one I've come to terms with is it is in fact a cell phone. One of the photos I've seen was on the Coast 2 Coast AM site. This guy posted a photo of what he said was his grandfather talking on a cell phone and he stated that his grandfather was in the CIA and had a cellphone in the 40's.
