Cell Phone Time Traveler In Charlie Chaplin Film?

With the DVD release of Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film The Circus, people have noticed a puzzling detail: a woman passing through the background of this scene appears to be speaking on a cell phone. Could she be a time traveler? The whole thing is even more unsettling than Chaplin’s toothbrush mustache.

  5. Where would this person get cell phone service in a time when there is none? Did anyone reason the title of this subject?

    • Well OBVIOUSLY it’s a cell phone from the future that works irregardless of distance in time-space. They have time travel machines, so why would their service be limited like ours? I bet they don’t even have contracts.

      And by “obviously” I mean “I just pulled this out of my ass.”

    Ya gotta love these time travellers. Intelligent enough to break the bonds of time but so stupid that they go and use their mobiles while being filmed as movie extras.
    By the way, I can lip read and he is quite clearly saying “Doc Doc, I’ve lost the delorean”

    Snarky comments aside, it does look like this person is holding and speaking into something that looks remarkably like a mobile phone. Now, could it be a crazy person talking to a chocolate bar? Sure. But it is an interesting little find.

  20. Of course, if one had the tech for time travel, one would also have the tech for cell phone communication with those back at home in the future or past, depending on which direction in time you were able to travel.

    She doesn’t even have anything in her hand. Disinfo, I am truly disappointed in you for posting something so mind bogglingly stupid.

  24. I always take my phone when I go back in time, stupid not to really. My time machine works by containing and manipulating a black hole, the same black hole I use for cooking breakfast and sending cell phone signals through distorted space time. U kan du anyfing wiv syance.
