There have been rumors of a guy on youtube named George Clark saying that in a 1928 Charlie Chaplin Flick called “The Circus,” there is apparently a “Time Traveler” talking on a cell phone. I do believe in the possibility in time travel but I am skeptical to say the least. I have watched the footage several times but as far as I know she could possibly just be holding up her collar because she is just a passing pedestrian that originally wasn’t cast in the movie. It also looks like she is talking to herself but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve talked to myself in public.
Sure the government has technology that hasn’t been released to the general public yet but I don’t think it’s possible that even the government had even the slightest notion of something like a cell phone.
“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.” -George Clark
I think Sherlock Holmes just turned in his grave. Here is a video with Clark explaining his theory but if you want to just cut straight to the chase, just watch the second video.
