    Time traveler speaks on cell phone in silent black and white movie?

    The Internet is buzzing today at what looks like a cell phone held to the ear of a woman in a 1920s silent Charlie Chaplin movie. Speculation that the extra could be a time-traveler is the gossip on the Web today as the video has gone viral.

    Charlie Chaplin’s black and white comedy “Circus” debuted in 1928 and can now be found on DVD.

    The clip shows a woman walking by who appears to be holding her hand to her ear. She seems to be speaking into or smiling into the object in her hand.

    Irish filmmaker George Clarke posted the clip and his theory on YouTube last week and it now has over 1.5 million views. His interpretation is that the woman is in fact a “time traveler.”

    Clarke says, “If you look carefully, she's talking on a thin, black device that is held to her ear. If you notice also that the knuckles are bent in the flat shape… of a phone. The phone is to the ear. It's not an ear trumpet. It is not an AM/FM radio, obviously because it's 1928." He goes on to say, "Technically, there's nothing that can explain [what] is in her had. It's clear she's talking. She's on her own. She's talking into the device."
