A 1928 cell phone? A time traveler captured on film?

Since yesterday, this has made the rounds on the internets. It's a piece of film "discovered" by one George Clarke, an Irish filmmaker. While looking at archival footage of the opening of the film "The Circus" by Charles Chaplin, he saw something quite rare; a lady waking near Graumman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, apparently talking on a "cell phone". The premiere was on January 6, 1928!

Just watch the video and draw your own conclusions.

What do you think?

That is just silly... I was holding a cold compress against an aching tooth! My cel was in my purse...

...err... was that my 'outside voice'?
