Bingo!!! I just pulled up some photos of Martin Cooper. Looks like we found our culprit. Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-hah!!! Very clever indeed.

This is just a small segment taken out of context supposedly from the Chaplin movie titled The Circus. Had he shared the entire movie which included the clip he shared with us/his audience... we might have been able to determine if it had been spoofed by the people who actually made the DVD/CD. He restricted our ability to scrutinized the entire film... so I suspect that it's probably a trick.

Did you notice that the guy walking ahead of her/him almost looked reptilian? Now that was strange.
maybe if we could view the original video tape(vcr)of the movie to see if he/she is in it??or contact someone in hollywood?I don't know just throwing something out there

The old man/woman may have been playing the role of a senile elderly person or lunatic talking to him/herself or an imaginary friend. I remember that back in the days before the proliferation of cell phones, a walk through any street in NYC would yield up any number of strangely-dressed individuals chattering away to themselves. Back then, there was no question that they were talking to anyone other than themselves; on very cold days downtown,they would often hold their ears to keep them warm or to avoid ear aches.

Just playing devil's advocate here in offering an alternative explanation...because, quite frankly, it sure as hell looks like he/she is actually talking on a cell phone in 1928.

Or maybe and I know I"m going on a limb here but maybe that person isn't a person at all, maybe alien looking humanoid with advanced technology which was later introduced to us?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah, that MUST be it!
PEOPLE!!!!
If this person was a "time traveler", why go to the trouble of wearing period clothes and hairstyle THEN WALK AROUND CHATTING ON A FUTURISTIC DEVICE????? On Hollywood Blvd ON CAMERA no less????
Or maybe he's predicting disclosure! Dead celebrities now alive!
I know, he's reporting to his fellow aliens that New Zealand has changed positions!
Folks, no time traveler! There's "out of the box", then there is ridiculous!

I see you are ignoring my Jack the Ripper idea, even though the character looks less like an old lady or man in drag and looks exactly like the generic Jack the Ripper.

H.G. Wells pursues Jack the Ripper to the 20th Century when the serial murderer uses the future writer's time machine to escape his time period.

Well hold on to your panties people because this is getting even more strange.

"The absolute most insulting bit is the notion that Chaplin may have met one of the people reputed to be Jack the Ripper. They spend about 5 minutes on this completely unimportant flight of fancy, 5 minutes of my life that I won't get back anytime soon."

www.amazon.com...

Indeed.

These characters Chaplin, Orwell and The Ripper are pop culture icons and are interlinked in ways other than just timespan.

Chaplin's daughter?

I hardly believe a person from our time could use a mobile phone in the 1920s, without the proper external signal transmitter stations between the caller and the receiver. No way.


Let's say for arguments sake she was a time traveler.

How the heck would you know what time she came from?
How would you know what communication device she was even using?
Radio towers? Mobile signal transmitters? Who said her future communication device needed them?

Could be a communication device that LOOKS like a mobile phone.
You know...like the ones on Star Trek, Kirk and his buddies used to sling open.

You can't really make these sort of declarations about an alleged time traveler and put them out there as if they are evidence to the contrary.

In any case, personally, I'm going with the hearing aid theory.
The ones posted up look just about right.

So nuts!

Thanks Zazzy! This is the kind of woo that brought me to ATS. Good times...

I definitely think it's a man, I mean Zoinks! look at 'her" feet and "her" man hands!


As for the time-travel aspects, well, I popped my popcorn and I'm captivatedly reading the replies.

I think you may have gotten this solved.
Good find!

Soooooooooooo..... What cell towers is that time traveler utilizing? Or what satellite? You REALLY think that is a time traveler because of what the 2 second shot shows? REALLY?? And he is just making a cell call to his buddy stuck in the year 2000? Why am I even commenting...

From the top of my head this explanation seems very plausible:
- There is some loud noise coming from the camera's area, hence the lady/man is trying to cover their ear, saying "What is that noise?!", stops to check it out, and says something again to the extent "Ah those crazy moving picture people blah blah blah".

Also, the cell phone theory falls apart. If he/she were time traveling alone, there would be nobody to talk to on the cell phone. Also, cellphones need Infrastructure to operate. You cant have a cell phone making calls as a stand alone unit.

... Maybe he was making a call to 2045 ? ...

We will never know.

No phone towers in 1920's so I do not think its a cell phone. But if you were a time travler why would you even bring a phone with you in the first place future or past it would not work. If you took it with you to the future how ever far you went be only say 20 years thats 20 years you didnt pay your bill. Might it be more posible that who ever that is they are not alone on there journey and are talking on a walki talki to there companion. Thats what I would do. Just my thoughts.

The scene being discussed is not from the movie.
It is from the Hollywood premier OF THE movie at Mann's Chinese Theatre.

Also everyone keeps talking about cell towers etc. not being around for service. Captain Kirk and the crew were able to talk to the Enterprise without the aid of cell towers. (just a thought)

No way, if it was a time traveler , they would be using a headset or something more hidden. Granted that they are more advanced than us and all.

OK interesting. It could be anything...or it could really be a phone!


Anyway who is that walking in front of him/her!!!? Am I the only one who sees him?

People in silent movies talked all the time. Actually, when movies first became popular, deaf people who could read lips were often horrified by the nasty language many of the actors used.

Going with the theory that it's not a cellphone but a tin ear ear horn - who is she talking too?

There's not anyone too, too close to her and - at the risk of being insensitive, I mean we are talking early 20th Century here...- a deaf or hard of hearing extra on a noisy movie set that would need to hear the director's instructions!?

Not buying it. But that's just me.

If you look at the frame sequence again, the step pattern is the exact same as the first man. It looks like a copy and slicing with some digital effects. An original, filmed edition, might help here. We could have Darth Vader in this if we wanted and had the right remastering equipment

I recognize those shoes anywhere, they are probably purple in color. That is actually Morpheus.

We are seeing the actual Matrix in action. The person on the other end is saying "operator.........."

Hey if time travel can be brought up, so can a matrix idea........... just sayin

You mean early 20th century of course.


Anyway am I the only one who thinks the guys who walks in front of him/her to have a strange face? almost looks like he has no face!

I am literally amazed. How many posters have said 'er.. what about cell phone towers..?' - as if a time traveller would need any such infrastructure to be able to communicate with their Operations Command Centre or comrades sharing the trip.

Every time this utterly lame argument has been posted, it's dropped in with the tone suggesting the poster thinks they've dropped a bombshell and the topic is now debunked? That's a FAIL in my opinion. You cannot debunk a potential time traveller by saying they'd somehow be limited by technology / lack of technology. It just doesn't stack up... and I'd have thought it was obvious too, requiring no imagination or creative thinking - simple logical inference.

I'm into the idea of tesla-tech, but despite various members displaying interest in this theory throughout, I read through about seven or eight pages without seeing a single link to references on Tesla's work - such references would provide material for discussion.

Please, ATS - think outside the box! You're meant to be conspiracy theorists!


Not trying to upset anyone - this is just a friendly neighborhood shake n' wake.
