What do you think? It might be, the mannerisms are certainly those of a modern cell phone user. Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DF8WF3vGUn8)

I wonder what the roaming charges would be like :D

Interesting, but even if it was a phone, I doubt there'd be any coverage. And who would they be talking to?

Hehe, maybe it's like in Night at the Museum :p

It's a cyborg sent from the future. Obviously.

I freaked out when I saw the person vanish. The person starts to vanish even before the person in the foreground and that is creepy! xP

Having read most of the comment in that youtube video, the best fit solution was.......

It was a paid clown extra, (an actor), remember this film was 'circus', and he was wearing an outfit like an old woman, and had a 1920's type phone without the connecting wire in his hand, and talking like being on a phone.

(The item might not have actually been a phone but something that represented being like a phone, something he could look as though he was talking into it, and spookly enough looks flat enough to us to look like a modern mobile phone)

That would have been a laugh in the old days, with him taking on an unconnected phone to no-one.

The look of astonishment at the end would have been acting.

Well her hand looks like shes holding a phone but if that's even possible they weren't even portable and who would she be even talking to on the other end? Maybe she has earache and is complaining to herself or something, but this is strange indeed

^^^ That's exactly what I believe it is; it was an elderly person after all


Noone with more than 3 brain cells would believe this to be a time traveller

It's Dr. McCoy dressed as a woman using his communicator calling the Enterprise to be beamed up.

The City On the Edge Of Forever? McCoy did get there first... :)

imagine she is a time traveller and she lives in the year 2010 and she reads this thread and she talks on the phone about some internet users know her :D.

Heh heh, that's why I thought of it. Great episode by the way, and it even had a hot looking Joan Collins.

Some answers are like mine: What's this? A traveler time?:yik:
Others are very funny: "McCoy":D

I give mine.

One day a woman who was sitting in a chair says me: "Come in, come in and sit behind me, I take you. "
As if she was driving.:eek:


I also thought it could be a portable radio.:p:o

Heh. This is cool. It's fun to believe it is a mobile. (Of course it's not.)

This is really doing the rounds on the internets day.

Why would they be talking with it though?

Their mouth is moving.

Weird how the mannerisms in the film look so much like using a mobile phone though. As far as the talking goes, maybe she just liked talking to herself.:cln:

Yes, he moves like a cell phone user. But it is likely a coincidence. But I still wonder what existed in 1928 that fit by your ear, is the size of a cell phone, and you talk into it.

I looked up Walkie Talkie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walkie-talkie#History), but it was invented in the 1940's and was the size of a brick.

I think now the culprit was a sophisticated electrical hearing aid, quite expensive in its day, so she must have been weathy and a bit deaf.

Here is an early hearing aid, and the thin item on the right is the bit you hold to your ear in a grasping manner, and looks very 'mobile phone' sized.

The unit would have batteries, and I can see a mains electricity plug for recharging.

That's not a cell phone!

It's a flip style communicator, like the ones they use in Star Trek. She was obviously beamed down to the film set by mistake and was desperately trying to get back to the ship before anyone noticed.

I suppose this is the only explanation that covers everything. :p

If she was using a hearing aid, who was she talking to then? She is clearly talking to someone.

Really cool find though, lol. :D
