Footage from a 1928 Charlie Chaplin film premiere has had the Internet buzzing about the possibility of time travel, but it appears it isn’t what it seems.

The previously unreleased film clipÂ of the Hollywood premiere ofÂ Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film “The Circus” shows what looks like a woman talking on a cell phone in the background.Â Â The clip recently appeared on YouTube and has had many considering the woman as a time traveler.
Experts are now saying the woman was most likely wearing a hearing device known as an ear trumpet, whichÂ was popular in that era.
“As you can tell from these, old-fashioned mechanical or resonating hearing aids were not necessarily long and rounded,”Â Philip Skroska, an archivist at the Bernard Becker Medical Library of Washington University in St. Louis, told Fox News. “Short, compact rectangular forms were not unusual.”
So those hoping for clues about the possibility of time travel will have to keep looking, and perhaps watch the recently released 25th anniversary of “Back to the Future” to satisfy their time-travel desires.
