Did a time traveler visit Hollywood in 1928?
“I do not have much patience with a thing of beauty that must be explained to be understood. If it does need additional interpretation by someone other than the creator, then I question whether it has fulfilled its purpose.” ~ Charlie Chaplin ~
Okay folks, this post is for all you SciFi fans, movie buffs and conspiracy theorists.
On Wednesday, October 20, 2010, Irish filmmaker, George Clarke, uploaded a piece of film footage that shows a behind-the-scenes look at the premier of Charlie Chaplain’s THE CIRCUS from 1928, which took place at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California.
The vintage piece of footage, captures what appears to be, an older woman who is walking along the sidewalk in front of Grauman’s and chatting on a cell phone.
“Impossible,” you say.
Take a look for yourself and you decide.
Clarke replays the footage several times and isolates the subject in question and he says, “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.”
At this point, the original video, with Clarke’s own commentary from his YouTube channel, has had over 350,000 views, is being constantly downloaded and is poised to go viral.
A fascinating controversy is brewing and chat boards everywhere are chattering and asking, “Could this actually be a time traveler?”
The entire video runs eight minutes, 27 seconds and is worth watching all the way through.
