Do you really believe there was a time traveler caught on a 1928 Charlie Chaplin film "Circus" ?
My personal opinion
1. Those two don't look like from time where people had cell phones. Too old fashioned. They look like they are from 50s.
2. If they really had a cell phone, whom they would talk to in 1928? Were cell phone networks a that time?
3. Why would two of them need to talk by phone at the same time? They look busy.
4. They are definetely not time travelers, but just people who unintentionaly caught by camera and tried to cover their faces.
What do you think?
I don't know what is caught on the Charlie Chaplin film but it's interesting to watch:
I'd still like to hear what other people think about what is on this film clip.
I think it is possible that what the person is holding up to his/her ear might be an early model hearing aid device and nothing more than that although if I didn't know that the film was so old, I would conclude that the device is a cell phone.
I have not heard of a time traveler in a Charlie Chaplin film or any other film but I have heard stories of people being pushed back in time somehow where the circumstances seemed very odd and time travel was the most logical explanation for unusual events. Not to sure if its a case of a very over active imignation, fiction being presented as fact or what. The story was to do with a man 'appearing' in the road in front of a car and his dress was not that of the current time, and he claimed to be from a different time, beyond that I do not recall the details. Let me just say that unless I can control where I go and am able to return to my time when I want I would not want to time travel at all! Would not be fun.
Shielding her eyes from the sun?
Talking to herself?
Hearing aid? http://hearing.siemens.com/ca/10-about- … ?year=1924
All reasonable explanations. Time traveler? Not reasonable.
obviously its a time traveller.
One, who went to the early 00's to get her shoes, then back to the 50's to get her grannie's hat and coat and then went back in time to have a chat on her mobile with someone else (even if there were no mobile phone towers and transmission back then) all while walking through a film set to ensure it was captured.
Its all perfectly logical...
I watched it yesterday and I have to admit that when you slow it down and look at a close-up it looks like that lady is talking on a cell phone. Her mouth is even moving when she is doing it. I don't think it is a time traveler but it is interesting that is for sure. Also, about the clothes...they look really weird...
