What's the explanation?
i dont know what to think of this. there are more posible explinations. i do think this one fits in the best  "pocket-sized carbon microphone/amplifier device[s]," patented in 1924.i got some explanations from this sitehttp://uk.eonline.com/uberblog/b208138_charlie_chaplin_time_traveler_here_are.html Possible Explanation No. 1: It's a time-traveler. This is the first part of Clarke's theory. And it's not all that out there. Some scientists, including renown physicist Stephen Hawking, believe time travel is possible.Possible Explanation No. 2: It's a time-traveler talking on a cell phone.This is the second part of Clarke's theory. And it's not all that out there, either. The woman does appear to be talking, and she does appear to be talking on something. But gadgetheads aren't keen on the possibility of anyone, even a time traveler, getting her iPhone or Droid to pick up a signal in cell-phone-tower-free 1928."You'd be searching for a long time," Kent German, a senior editor for CNET, told us. "'Can you hear me now?'—you wouldn't even get that far."Possible Explanation No. 3: It's just a lady—a lady who's hard of hearing.And she's using one of them new-fangled "pocket-sized carbon microphone/amplifier device[s]," patented in 1924.Possible Explanation No. 4: The lady is "a nutter." This one is courtesy the YouTube clip's extremely active comments section. It's rude, yes, but it addresses one of the most mysterious aspects of the footage: To whom is the apparently alone woman talking? Why, herself!Possible Explanation No. 5: The lady is related to the 1940s hipster. This could either mean she hails from a line of time travelers—or a line of fashion-forward individuals.By the by, Forgetomori, the site that examined the 1940s hipster photo, has weighed in on the Chaplin time traveler. It's conclusion? Inconclusive.Possible Explanation No. 6: The lady is the ultimate DVD Easter egg. According to Clarke, the footage of the walking, apparently talking woman was found in the special-features section on a DVD release of Chaplin's The Circus. One YouTuber suggested the shot could be the result of a post-production whiz having some fun.No word back yet from Warner Home Video as to whether the footage, as presented in the YouTube clip, appears undoctored.Possible Explanation No. 7: The lady is Taylor Swift—she's everywhere. That's gotta be it.

The question I would pose is this: If it is a cell phone how is it getting reception in 1928?  If it can create its own time vortex and get signal from its future and allow communication across the space-time continuum, why isn't this person using a bluetooth device (or future equivalent) so as to be less obvious?  Perhaps they are a time-traveler trying to be seen by walking through the set talking on a cell phone, being from the future they would know when the footage would be found and it could be used as a way to ease us into the technology.  However, I would think the dangers of going to that time and walking around with technology that is almost a century too advanced would out weigh the desire to go, "look at me!"  I'm betting it's either someone CG'd in or a nutter.  I'm biassed though because I don't believe time travel is or ever will be possible.  The way I see it time isn't a traversable dimension or even a part of existence, it is a byproduct of existence or perhaps a necessity of existence.  Time is the glue which holds the universe together and gives it purpose, with out a constant time stream the universe would slowly unravel as wormholes that opened and closed would begin sucking planets, stars, and galaxies in and transporting them to who-knows-where.  I believe even the possibility of time travel would destabalize the universe to the point where existence would be impossible in the first place.

I'm sure it's a logical explination for what was seen on the Chaplin film. It's just one of those oddities that doesn't make since. Yes it does look exactly like someone talking on a cell phone but there's a thousand different things a person could be doing that would look as if they are talking on a cell phone.

Maybe she/he is speaking into a recording device?Taking notes of the surroundings?Just another theory.

So, I get what you are saying about not believing in time travel. But I have a question. In regards to hauntings tand or ghost activity where a person or several people find themselves in another 'place' for a breif period of time and even interact with them. There was a case (my memory of exact recount of it is fuzzy) where three people stopped at a saloon type business in Texas or somewhere and bought a drink. The Bartender looked at the money as though it were strange and gave them a funny look. They thought it was some kind of costume type drama event. They left a while later and then realized after the fact that the place hadn't existed since the wild west days. So, the idea being that they interacted with an environment and popped back out. This story gets told in the ghost catagory but seems less like that kind of paranormal type event and more like a rift kind of thing.I saw it on a documentary some time back in relation to hauntings and the like. There are other accounts where people experienced things similar to this. I have myself as well. If this is true then time travel is possible. Just wondered what your take on it is since you are in the ghost field a bit.GP

I have seen this video and have thought alot about it. Time travel has crossed my mind many times and I wondered if it could be real. And then again I do think it can be possible. First of all if you were to travel back or forward in time and meet your self what would happen? Can you change your destiny? Or even world and life events? What would happen? Is this why life is so crazy because people or beings keep time traveling and maybe changing events just by time traveling? It makes me think of the movie "Back to the Future." Hmmm.....

One explanation could be the western saloon was brought forward in time and not the people were sent back in time.  I can see a place and time getting trapped in a parallel dimension of sorts where they are stuck in limbo, possibly an explanation for the things that disappear in the Bermuda Triangle or people that vanish into thin air.  I also read of a study where a French scientist was able to create a hologram in a cave.  The story went that he was spelunking when he had an epiphany (it was as if lightning had just struck his brain.)  Looking around himself, he noticed that he was in a cave (duh), full of quartz deposits, iron deposits, running mineral water, and some other choice geology stuff I can't remember.  Putting it all together he realized it created the potential for a hard drive (the quartz) and a battery (dissimilar metals in a liquid electrolyte) and therefore it was possible that this cave could be used for the recording and playback of information.  The story went on to tell of how he was able to somehow get the cave to record his image and when the conditions in the cave match the conditions at the time of recording his imagine replays itself.  Don't know how true that is, it was heresay when I read it, but it is still a possiblilty.  I suppose with enough juice and storage space you could create a recording that was capable of duplicating thought and action like the holodeck on Star Trek.Third possiblity: Lysergic acid diethylamide.  I once walked into a room and had a guy ask me to help move the elephant he had just created out of love (he was tripping , not a halucination I was having) so someone seeing a bartender from the Old West wouldn't surprise me.It could have been a glamour.  Although I don't believe in backward time travel I do believe in magic, fairies, demons, and all sorts of other nasties that could create an illusion that real.  I've had extremely vivid visions and dreams of what some people call past life experiences.  If the person was having one of those but was still aware of themselves enough to muddle the memory with a modern overtone somehow...

The lady is hard of hearing and is trying to listen to someone nearby.  That's all it is.

Perhaps if she is a time traveler she did not travel through time alone. If she is with others from her time the communication device is linked to the others that have traveled with her and they do not require a cell phone tower to communicate with each other. The video does not seem to be doctored and she is talking and responding to a conversation with someone. Her body langauge says it all. We have all seen someone speaking to a friend or loved one on a cell phone before. Her body langauge is so common that it has to be considered in all of this. And as long as we have dark matter, and the mathematics that can explain blackholes there is the possibility of time travel. I dont think she meant to be seen in this film it was a chance happening. She may have been more excited over the journey through time to realize that she was on a film set.

This could actually be a very important piece of footage and course there are others that have not been found yet.

note how the "woman" moves her figures near the end of the clip.  Both the man and the woman wear the saqqme size shoes, are they the same person?  People before finger prints were identified by their ear shapes,is this an effort to prevent us from seeing the same ear on both persons?  I see the  Tiajuna painted donkey.  Tiajuna means auntie John.  There is local history that a drag queen owned the land that became that city.  Is this man and woman that person?  The  1920's sounds like this might be possible.

I have been under the assumption that time traveling backwards in time is a paradox.. I thought it was only possible to travel forward.. But I could be proven wrong.

It would be easier to travel reverse in time due to the fact that events  of all kinds leave an imprint. To have an imprint of something that has not yet occured would seem to be much more difficult. I dont know but there are and will be events that prove this theory as we have more info on possible time phenomena and witness accounts of these events.

There has been speculation about her male appearance but there are many woman who appear to be masculine. In todays world body image is much more important than it was in the past and in some time periods the bigger a woman was the more attractive she was to men. It is or would be common for a woman who studied and was capable of time trave not to be a super model. This would be due to the way that women are treated in society. The most beatiful women are usually not locked away in labs they are put in positions of advertisement and media do to the male need for fantasy models. Some of the women who are in lab situations dont seem to be attractive to most men. Men seem to fear women who are more intelligent than they are and find them less attractive. Therefore this masculine looking woman could fit the average profile for a quantum scientist. Dont get me wrong there are lots of beautiful scientist and I am sure there will always be women in labs that are super model status.But in this case perhaps this time traveler just couldnt get a cover of a fashion magazine. I still think this video is authentic and quite unexplainable!!!!!

Whatever phone it is in 1928, it's probably better than the one I have now !

if there are no repeating cell towels she/he could not be calling anyone in 1928.  The copyrights for that technology was bought by Hedi Lamarr, the MGM actoress in the early 1940's.  Useless to have a cell phone in 1928, your call could not go anywhere.

There is another theory.......perhaps she wasnt talking to anyone in the future (or the past) but talking to another time traveller who has asimilar device located somewhere else in the same period of time. A kind of advanced walkie talkie as we have today.

so she can travel back in time ,but cant use a talking device coz there are no towers ,lol.And that woman is a man dont ya think?Even though the strongest possibility is that the person in question is merely scratching her ear and singing,there is still enough in the film to make it just that bit different.A feeling you get after watching it.A feeling that something is just not quite righLike the person said before,the body language is not right.She seems to notice shes being filmed then tries to cover her actions.Also she definatly appears to be talking into something held to her ear.All too weird if ya ask me.Yet again,it still could be quite innocent.Thats why were here.To talk and work these things out.Anythings possible,you only have to think about space and time to appreciate that.
