Who doesn’t love a good mystery?

Many of you who have a strong love of films and what goes into making them probably watch a lot of the special features that come on DVDs and Blu-rays. For some of us, they can sometimes be just as good or even better than the movie we’ve just seen. There’s just something about seeing all of the many steps of creating a movie and seeing the cast and crew on the set doing their thing that’s simply fascinating to witness. Along with these great making of features, there’s often plenty of other features that concentrate on various parts of a movie’s journey to the big screen and our waiting eyes.

One such movie fan and filmmaker named George Clarke, while checking out some of the special features on Charlie Chaplin‘s 1928 film, The Circus, noticed something rather strange. The feature showcased the film’s premier at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, and at one moment, it would appear that a woman walks by the camera while talking on a cell phone! Did we mention this was 1928?!

Be sure to head on over to the other side to check out the video in which Mr. Clarke talks about how he spotted this curious occurrence, and what he thinks could be going on…including the possibility that someone unlocked the secrets to time travel.

OK, so in all honesty we know that there’s just no possible way that this is a cell phone, nor did someone go Marty McFlying back to 1928 to compile the biggest set of roaming charges humankind could ever imagine. Who would you even call as the only cell phone-carrying person in the late ’20s?

All of that said, you can’t deny that it does really look like someone chatting away on a mobile phone. It’s not like people just walk around talking to themselves with their hand slapped against their own head, so what could this possibly be?

Perhaps this person was just recently mugged and was cursing their attacker out while holding a little ice to the cheek? You be the judge! Watch the video now and by all means, share what you think might be going on here.
