Earlier this month this video started circulating of a woman appearing to have been captured talking on a cell phone in 1928. The footage came from the opening of a Charlie Caplin movie at Mann’s Chinese Theater, and it’s pretty weird.
Now, the Cristian Science Monitor has published an article saying that the cell phone claim has been debunked. According to their experts, the woman is using 19th century era hearing device called an Ear Trumpet.
But go back and watch the slow motion analysis again. I’m still not so certain it’s a hearing air. It’s reasonable to think that the woman is listening for something. But who is she talking too?
