Charlie Chaplin’s Time Traveler

This got buried in my bookmarks last fall, but I meant to post it, because it is fun. This short film is about a piece of footage George Clark 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.

So what do you think is going on here?
