Default Time-traveller caught on film using a cell phone in the '20s?

This video is pretty cool, even if it's not what it seems to be .

That's really interesting!

I'm sure there's an explanation for that but time traveling person isn't one of them. You can't travel back in time. You can travel into the future though.

That's pretty cool footage.

If it is a phone, then who or how would she be talking to someone? There wouldn't be cell towers in 1928. If it is a hearing aid, then why would she be talking and what would there be for her to listen to? Also, if it is a hearing aid, what does she need to hear in a silent movie?

My theory is it is indeed one of those hearing aids...and she's just crazy & talking to herself.

It kinda reminds me of when I was little. Way before mobile phones were introduced, I used to take my Walkman (R.I.P.) & hold it to my ear like I was using a phone. I used to pretend to talk to people. Maybe *I* was a bit crazy!

They have a repeater in the DeLorean re-broadcasting to the 21st century.

I am always a skeptic so I dont believe this is a time traveler at all. Its either a hearing aid being held by a person that talks to herself or a crazy lady who didnt want to be on camera and was shielding her face while complaining about it.

I mean really if theres a time traveler who has the technology to time travel and to talk on a cell phone without cell towers don't you think they would also have a blue tooth or something better?

Probably a gimmick done by the studio when they produced the DVD set. I'd love to see the original footage on reel.

I'd say the footage is authentic & there's a logical explanation to what we're seeing.

After all...the footage is obviously before modern beauty creams .

seeing stuff like this often makes me wonder: what am I doing today, that is going to be the subject of curiousity/exploration/amusement to someone 200 years in the future.


Do you think this lady ever fathomed that she was going to be the subject of a world wide topic of debate about what she was doing that particular day some 80 years ago?

The device she was using could well have been one of these. Siemens Hearing Instruments - Our History 'Siemens patent for a compact, pocket sized carbon microphone/amplifier device suitable for pocket instruments.' ...patented in 1924.
...looks familiar.

As for who she was talking to. I would say either the guy walking in front of her or the zebra with the saddle.

If it was a time travelled mobile phone, she would definitely be talking to herself, there been no mobile networks in 1928.

That's the most sensible explanation so far.

She was probably telling the zebra to become a coat from the looks of what she's wearing.

i am not saying that I believe it is a time traveler..

but if it was.. and she had a device that could transport her to the past...
you guys dont think they could have a device that could communicate with others.. without a cell tower? Could be talking to her partner.. that is on the other side of they city.. like a really strong walkie talkie? or a cell that can reach back to her headquarters, where there is a device that can send info back to her own time?
it could also be a recording device, that she is using to make logs of what she observed.

as for bluetooth device...yeah.. in 1928 would you be walking around in public with that in your ear??? people look funny now.. walking and talk in bluetooth; or with just the device hanging there doing nothing.

it does look interesting... my best guess.. is she is talking to herself.. and holding something up to her face (for what ever reason)

Dood. Scott Bakula is WAY hotter than that.......chick?

Edit: Wait a sec, Samuel Beckett could only leap to points WITHIN his own lifetime. Unless he found the key to eternal youth, he wasn't alive in 1928 so it couldn't have been him .

time travel is the more scary option.. if you think what that means in the big picture of the universe. the power it posses.. for those that want to abuse it.

what it means to free will.. if you can travel to the future..
what it means to everything.. if you can go back and mess things up... in so many ways...

I don't see an object in her hand.. I think she's just fixing her hat or playing with her hair. Perhaps she is just chewing gum (Did they have that in 1928?) that makes it look like she's talking.

Also, think about it:

Who would she be talking to? how would she get service?

Well, one could argue that if she has the technology to travel back in time, she may not need cell towers or a network to communicate with "others of her kind".

yep - seems like this is the answer... but of course, notice how after this response was given, people ignored it opting for the extra-terrestrial, or time travel options. This is how rumors and conspiracy theories about places like Area 51 and the JFK assassination get started. Sometimes the truth is just so boring people don't want to believe it

i saw it...just not the most enjoyable option to talk about!

but what is she using it for during walking?
who is she talking to..using a hearing aid?

so if it is a hearing aid...and she is talking to it.. using up the batteries... then it is my option (1)..crazy woman

As someone said before, if you have the technology to travel back in time, you would also have the technology to talk to people back where you came from.

So some say that Chaplin did this joke on purpose. I don't doubt for a second that Chaplin would pull this sort of gag (anyone seen Modern Times?). But I don't think a random lady walking in the background holding a box to her head and talking to herself is the best way to trick a future audience into thinking they see time travelers. (this is assuming Chaplin knowingly did this as a gag). I think he would do something a little more impressive or obvious than that. Now if it was some random lady from the future walking on to a set that was likely guarded by security (given Chaplin's fame, I would assume there was security of some sort), I think that is just as unlikely.

Sad and pathetic that this would make the news. Nice to see fox and CNN so on the ball about the important issues of our day, and not concerning themselves with ridiculous crackpot notions.

Come to think of it, that's what they've always done.

I agree! But seeing how many posted in this thread and seeing how there were at least two threads started about it, I guess they're reporting what people want to hear. Maybe everyone was as sick of the political ads as I was. LOL
