Will we one day have the ability to travel in time like Marty McFly in ‘Back To The Future’ or perhaps Stewie Griffin in that episode of ‘Family Guy’? Well we might never see time travel in our life-time someone may have traveled to 1928, and they got caught caught on film. Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film, The Circus appeared to show a woman walking down the street in front of the camera. Nothing out of that generation there… except she’s talking on a cell phone. She even stops right in front of the camera and clearly, you can see she’s not talking on an ordinary device. Thanks to George Carke you can see this footage, slowed down, for yourself.
You be the judge of this. (Starts @ 2:43)
Freaky huh? Clark offered his own tale on how he found this clip and what his theory is:
“This short film is about a piece of footage I (George Clarke) found behind the scenes in Charlie Chaplins film ‘The Circus’. Attending the premiere at Manns Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA – the scene shows a large woman dressed in black with a hat hiding most of her face, with what can only be described as a mobile phone device – talking as she walks alone.
I have studied this film for over a year now – showing it to over 100 people and at a film festival, yet no-one can give any explanation as to what she is doing.
My only theory – as well as many others – is simple… a time traveler on a mobile phone. See for yourself and feel free to leave a comment on your own explanation or thoughts about it.”
What does this all mean to our future? Will we be taking vacations in Paris, during the 70’s? Or would single men go back to the stone-age and rock a cave girl’s world?
Leave you comments below on what you think this really is. “Future” you might be reading this right now.
