A newly released video by an Irish filmmaker is taking the internet by storm.

The independent filmmaker, George Clarke, says that he may have found footage of a time traveller.

The footage is from the Hollywood Premiere of a Charlie Chaplin film from 1928, called The Circus.

The footage is not from a scene in the movie... its from shots of the general public in 1928 and is found in the extras section on the recently released DVD of the movie.

It shows a woman walking by who appears to be talking into a device that she is holding to her ear.

Some (like Clarke) claim that it is a mobile phone; some say it is a walkie-talkie --- neither had been invented in yet in 1928.

Others are saying it is most likely some sort of hearing aid.

Take a look at the video and leave a comment to let us know what YOU think!

Hey, let's be real here...forget the time travel crap, if so, why travel to this time? It's a friendly alien, having come to observe us discreetly (although, not being perfect, they screwed up here)...talking up to the mother ship, beyond our detection...not through time, just barely out of their detectable range...why must it be time travel from future earthlings???

Ok. The telephone had been invented. Ever see a crazy person talk to themselves? Rant on a street corner or AT a street corner? This person thinks she is talking into a telephone (existed at the time) but she did not actually have one (happens). The visual is striking, however. Looks like a lady jawing on a cell. Cool. Weird. Not time travel.

It's called an ear trumpet.

Ok I would love to see proof of time travel as much as the next guy... but this is not it.

And for those that say it can't be, because it has not been invented yet... The very concept of time travel means that just because we can't do it now doesn't mean that it will never happen. And if it happens in the future it doesn't preclude the possibility that they might not go back to a time before us.

without cell towers how could she be talking with anyone? Think about it!

That doesn't even look like a woman to me. Watch the way 'he/she' walks...very similar to the man who walks by first. And then, at the end of the clip, the face looks like a man, and look at the size of the hand holding the 'phone'...

If you look very closely in the top left hand corner you will see a reflection of Jackie Kennedy in sunglasses and a bubushka, in the back of the white waiters jacket. This is defenetly some sort of proof of time travel!

I am totally amazed that no one else has noticed the background changes, the zebra was replaced by an elephant, there are different people walking by in this film...people only see what they want to see or what they are told they see. I looked at the film posted by Mr. Clarke and watched frame by frame between 3:50 and 4:10 and saw the guy/gal on the phone plus all these other things. At this point, I see no need to address the "phone" issue. LOL!

Ok, I don't think it's a cell phone or time travel,but to argue the hypothetical; IF it is a time traveler using a cell phone in a time and place cell phone service did not exist one must consider she brought the phone with her to that exact location pretending to speak on it because she intended for us to question the scene today. Basically, it was her intention all along to give us this proof of time travel. If it was a hearing aid, who was she having a conversation with causing her to need it

One other thing- what's up with her dress? Compared to the man in front of her, she seems like she's dressed for winter rather than what you'd see in Southern California. So, maybe she is just a loony!

I understand better now what empowered the democrats to believe that they could sell the idea of manmade global warming to the American people. My friends, we are certainly living in a dumbed down society.

Oh come on, this is yet another pathetic meaningless story from the media. Hence why I don't watch much NBC news.

There are Children out there committing suicide due to hazing and bullying over the internet and in schools. and you post a story about someone who looks like they are talking on a 'device' and are a time traveler?

You make me sick, I spit on your idea of quality material that you give us. It seems the only worthy News these days is BBC.

haha ok yea cause this has to do with bullying, this is just a conspiracy theory just for fun. its just something interesting to think about. you clearly haven't put much thought in to it.

I think you should give her a call and ask her what she was doing.

The branches are bouncing a bit, so maybe it was windy. She may be hanging onto the edge of the lining of her hat to help keep it on her head.

But of course the guy in front of her is reaching into his pocket to answer his cell phone--no one notice that?

The fact that she has her hand toward her head, and stops and pauses as if she were talking into a phone, is as absurd a conclusion. We see what we are accustomed to see--and we see a lot of behavior like that.

Plus we see often what we want to see, especially if encouraged as by this posting. Political ads anyone?

Ok, let's come down to earth for a minute people. It is everyones dream to time travel. However, don't you think it just a little odd that someone talking on a cell phone way back then, didn't make it into any of the history books. What about the cast and crew of the film? Surely they would have noticed. Wake up people. It was scripted that this person hold something up to their ear as they were walking in the shot.

this inst in a movie, its part of a release of his movie. and no one ever took a close look at it. no ones looking for this. it just came across one day.

Just Saw this, I agree with @Joniemac, this goes along with the wide scale of evidence that possesses the possibility of time travel, This move was clearly a 1920's film as the corrosion and pixels matched the modernisation of cameras back then, What gets me is the fact that this man or woman is acting perfectly normal and near the end turns to look at the camera with a straight face as if she had been in the realm for some time...
History tells a big story, we need to learn from this evidence!

could it be she is listening to a sea shell

could it be she is listening to a sea shell?!

It's an alien reporting back to the mother ship on the progress the human race is making since they planted us here.

her mouth is moving

could it be that she was totally aware that she is being filmed by this new "move making machine," therefore she feels bashful hiding part of her face with her hand al the while telling herself that she is going to be a movie star just like mary pickford?

could it be that she was totally aware that she was being filmed by this new scary "movie making machine," so she was camera shy and tried to hide her face all the while telling herself that she was going to be a big star like mary pickford?

where did she the plutonium for the flux capacitor?

Don't worry about the lack of a tower. If this person traveled back in time to walk through a Charlie Chaplin film, he certainly didn't travel back from 2010. He traveled back from a time in our future. Who says towers or satellites are even needed to communicate in the future. What if the tower does exist - simultaneously in an parallel quantum universe. If we can discover the key to time travel in the future, we may likely have also overcome the obstacle of how to communicate through time.

thats what i think

first of all she has a glove on. You can see nothing behind it. Also she doesn't appear to be talking, but even if she was, she was probably talking to herself. Or she might have had a headache or an ear ache. Really! Time travel? I think that is really stretching it a bit!!!

When she turns you can clearly see shes talking, really talking to herself come on. why would she hold her hand up to her ear in that way the excate way we do when were talking on a phone arm resting to her side and her hand clearly shows it in a way of holding a phone. Why is it so hard for you to belive that its true if we can out a man on the moon if we can create a device to keep your heart pumpping than why cant we time travel.

It is a hearing aid; a Siemens Hearing aid. Time travel is not possible yet. Do some research before making outlandish assumptions. Visit: http://hearing.siemens.com/sg/10-about-us/01-our-history/milestones.jsp?... to get a clue!
