Chaplin Film Mystery Over Woman With Cellphone
A scene from CHARLIE CHAPLIN's silent movie THE CIRCUS has sparked a time-travel mystery among fans after one extra appears to be chatting on a mobile phone.
The clip from the 1928 film has been posted online by Irish filmmaker George Clarke and begs the question did someone travel back in time to appear outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, while Chaplin was shooting the movie?
The woman in the scene is holding a black object to her ear and appears to be talking into it.
Clarke insists the video has not been manipulated in any way and he has consulted with experts about his find, which he has posted on YouTube.com for fans to check out.
The filmmaker has concluded the woman walking through the scene is from another era.
