Charlie Chaplin Time Traveler? How Did Cellphone-Wielding Woman End Up In Chaplin’s “The Circus?”

Here’s a kooky riddle for you, just in time for All Hallow’s Eve….

Did a time traveler end up in a Charlie Chaplin film? One Irish filmmaker thinks so.

After checking out the DVD extras that accompanied Chaplin’s 1928 silent film The Circus, George Clarke, a father-of-two from Northern Ireland, insists he spotted a woman talking on a cellphone about five decades before the contraptions were invented.

A time traveler caught on camera perhaps?

“Right now the only conclusion I can come to, which sounds absolutely ridiculous I’m sure to some people, but it’s a time traveler.”
