The Nation is a place for ice hockey discussion, squee fests and a forum for smart people to debate non-sensery. We make an appeal to those brains now as we have just watched a video of an Irish Film maker who claims to have caught wind of a time traveller in a Charlie Chaplin Movie.

As crazy as that sounds we can’t say we quite make sense of what we are watching either. So we turn it over to the Nation for debate – though it clearly has nothing to do with Ice Hockey.

First the preamble from the YouTube description:

"This short film is about a piece of footage I (George Clarke) found behind the scenes in Charlie Chaplins film ‘The Circus’. Attending the premiere at Manns Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA – the scene shows a large woman dressed in black with a hat hiding most of her face, with what can only be described as a mobile phone device – talking as she walks alone.

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 and feel free to leave a comment on your own explanation or thoughts about it.

George – 20th October 2010"


Seriously, the guy makes a very convincing case. What on earth do you think that is?
