I’ve been engaged in a hot debate over the last hour with a friend of mine over just what this is. Seems like Irish filmmaker George Clarke has discovered a time traveler in footage from the 1928 premiere of Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus.
In the scene, the alleged time traveler walks across the screen, clearly speaking into… well, who knows? In 1928, there certainly weren’t any eletronic devices that portable, much less ones designed specifically for communication. It’s hard to believe, but after seeing the footage, it’s hard to believe anything else.
Check out George’s video, and weigh in. What on Earth is going on here? Cellular phone? Star Trekian communicator? Something else?
