Time Traveler Found In Charlie Chaplin’s ‘The Circus’

George Clarke believes he has caught a time traveler in a piece of video footage found by him in Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film The Circus.

Attending the premiere at Manns Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA – the scene shows a large woman /man dressed in black with a hat hiding most of his/her face, with what can only be described as a mobile phone device – talking as she walks alone.

Clarke added: I have studied this film for over a year now – showing it to over 100 people and at a film festival, yet no-one can give any explanation as to what she is doing.
My only theory – as well as many others – is simple… a time traveler on a mobile phone.

See for yourself after the break.

    I saw this on FOX News today and had to Google it. My first instinct was that this supposed footage from 1928 was a piece of video trickery and the original film was doctored up. Then I thought, how do we even know this was the original film? Unless this was shown in 1928, which was very possible, this would be the first time anyone had ever seen the footage, so how do we know it is authentic?

    I think we have all been poring over this video and maybe looking too closely. Given the cost of film, and the supposed fact that it was a newsreel promo for THE CIRCUS, why choose that shot with just two people walking down the street to a huge movie premiere?

    Also, it dissolves into the next shot. I haven’t seen many films pre-1929, but I don’t remember many dissolves, either. Old newsreel footage generally did not dissolve, but made simple cuts from one shot to the next.

    Also, the man/woman in question is dressed awfully warm for L.A. in the sunshine, where it would be about 70 degrees.

    My guess is that George Clarke dummied this footage up himself. In either case, he has certainly drummed up a lot of publicity for himself, his films and his website. Ironically, it will probably be sales from Charlie Chaplin’s boxed set that will triple this Christmas.
