    Conspiracy theorists, unite! Courtesy George Clarke, here's some footage—slowed down Zapruder-style—of Charlie Chaplin's 1928 film, The Circus that appears to show a woman walking down the street... while talking on a cell phone. Buh? Watch for yourself—and decide—inside.[/p]

    Eternia!
    That's how it looks.

    My friend has this film so I will watch it tomorrow and if this scene is in it, it's very strange indeed!

    she's just covering up the bruise her man gave her for embarrassing him in front of guests.

    Not really user submitted news... She's just holding her hat and as a result her hands are sorta cupped around her ear.

    Interesting. But, I doubt it's a cell phone...

    "Time Travel" Lol....
    Though, i also think it probably is the woman holding her hat, probably trying to stop it from blowing away or something.

    She isn't holding anything in her hand, you can see she isn't a split second before the scene fades and she moves her hand.

    As far as conspiracies go, this is pretty laughable.

    Also this is not news of any type, so I will just move it to gotc.

    EDIT!:

    Upon further examination I can confirm it is in fact a bluetooth headset!

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It's probably some senile woman having a conversation with a bar of soap.
