A Cell Phone in 1928 Chaplin film?

***UPDATE - VIDEO ADDED 10-27-10 9:35 p.m. Eastern***

Proof of Time Travel?

From Mediaite:
"...the internet has been buzzing about video footage that appears to show a woman talking on a cellphone…in 1928. The footage is from the premiere of Charlie Chaplin’s film The Circus and was spotted by Belfast filmmaker George Clarke."

I have a couple of theories:

1) Sadly this genius was run over by a carriage just moments later, killing him and destroying a new device his apprentice would swear to police allowed them to communicate.

2) The notion of mobile communication was already dreamt of, especially in hip and brilliant circles like Chaplin’s must have been, so they pulled the greatest gag in gag history knowing someday they would tear the fabric of comic timing.
