Weird - very neat. The guy speaking throughout gets extremely irritating though as he says the same thing over and over lol.

Incredible!!!
The paradox it is because if in the future will be we capable of making this kind of leap, we are witness of something today which does not still exist !!

What extraordinary parabola !

Snopes.com is a great source of information for confirming or debunking urban myths or legends found on the internet. There is a very simple explanation for this, as explained here:

It's just a hearing aid

this kind of explanation was given by many people that the thing she was holding was a hearing aid but the weird part is that she talks while she is walkin the street and when she sees the camera she continues to talk with this little device.oh and the hearing aids were large that time of year and the thing she was holding was in the size of a MOBILE PHONE.

Some simple logic can disprove the "time traveller with a mobile phone theory".

Let's say, for a moment that it is a time traveller with a mobile phone. Who's she talking to? Is there another time traveller with a cell phone? And how is the cellphone working? In the 1920's there would be no cell phone towers, no satellites...basically nothing that would allow a mobile phone to function. So, even if it's a time traveller with a mobile phone, there'd be no way for that mobile phone to actually work.

Using that logic, the most likely conclusion is exactly the one that's reached in the link above.

Also, hearing aids were not necessarily large in 1928. Here's a link showing one that was patented in 1924 - http://hearing.siemens.com/sg/10-abo....jsp?year=1924 - it's the approximate size of what the woman is holding.

well if she was a time traveler indeed then she would traveled from the future the long distance future and maybe their technology would be so advanced that they wouldnt need antennas or satellites to communicate via a mobile phone.i mean in most of sci fi movies and in QUANTUM LEAP in some eps when the character goes back in time he always have a little gizmo with him as a communication device far advanced from anything else we have seen so far.so its the same here and that is if she is a time traveler
and in the video she is talking, she could be some crazy woman talking to the thin air but that we will never be able to find out but only speculate

Charlie Chaplin time traveler: A scene of a supposed time traveler talking on her cellphone in a 1928 Hollywood film probably just shows someone with a simple ear trumpet.

han ! A simple ear trumpet would be slightly bigger nan?
let us admit the case!
Has who does she speak? sam? perhaps she makes seems to speak to the telephone while answering Al the holograph

This last argument is convincing!

It's a pity!
I like the idea that in the future the man travels in the time and that we witness some tracks of this extraordinary discovery today!

It remains etrange ! A ear trumpet serves has to hear, not has to speak! Her posture and movements remind has a conversation with otherone !

the next question is the following one:
What interet to travel in the time? The need to know? To understand? To change the history? Have we get the right to do this ? Or just the need to see for believe?

Very interesting indeed. Well, first off, I second jmoniz's point about there being no cell phone services in 1928.

Secondly, not a very careful "time traveler," is she? She makes the effort to dress in 1920s attire, but makes such a glaring oversight as to yap on a cell phone in the middle of a street while being filmed.

I've seen this, however the explanation of a slightly loopy person talking into their hearing aid is just a bit too plausible to ignore, I'd much rather beleive it was a time traveller !
