Woman with Mobile Phone in 1928?

George Clarke is an Irish filmmaker. He found a strange scene while watching the DVD extras for Charlie Chaplin’s film “The Circus”.

Ironically, 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.

So what do you think? If its not a mobile phone, then what is it?


  1. Yaaaaaay! I can get on your blog again, and you blog in English 🙂

    This was very cool — I love to find the little 'accidents' in movies, TV, etc.

    American Girl: Don't be shy. Next time, ask me to translate the post for you. I don't mind.:)
    So, do you think its a mobile phone?

  3. You're so sweet, thank you. I usually use Google translate — but the translation can sometimes be scary 🙂

    I do think it's a mobile!
