I have seen this before, but nobody has enlarged the hand big enough to really see the object in the hand.
I think this is the best explanation someone has come up with.

So your saying she was talking to herself ?

I know a lot of women that like to Talk just to hear themselves

remember this is a MOVIE. A silent movie. The actors knew that if they spoke in a "hidden" fashion nobody would see it or hear it in the theater. This person was using a hearing device, and was speaking to someone off camera. It's not like thats a real street in a real noisy city. Its a quiet closed set and you can hear people talking.

Also, movie cameras were large and heavy back then. They did not just carry them around and tape scenes. There is no way that they just happened to "catch" a time traveler on film.

So what was this hearing, and speaking device called back then?

I think I've got the answer folks -- at least to what the device is. We still don't know who she was talking to, though. Check this out, found on YouTube:

"The Western Electric 34A carbon hearing [aid] was manufactured by the Western Electric Company in 1925. The Western Electric company marketed these early hearing aids under the 'Audiphone' trade name."

Here's the link to the video, and there's a picture of the hearing aid. It really does look kind of like a cell phone. YouTube - Chaplin Time Traveler Secret Revealed explained.

PS It just occurred to me that she may not have been talking at all. Maybe she was eating/chewing something -- which is what made her mouth move. And further, when she turned and looked at the camera -- and looked a little surprised or shocked, maybe she was just a little surprised/embarassed at being caught in the moment, the way we sometimes are when we least expect it. . .

Lordy Lordy Lordy, if that doesn't look very much like an Apple I pod, now I know where they stole the design from.

Time traveller, Is this the Doc?-captureuuuuu.png

Someone posted this as a comment to the ipod above, I didn't check it out but I well believe it will be true.

I googled the western electric 34A carbon hearing aid and found that:
It weighed 2lbs and was 7 3/4 inches long, there is no way that woman or man in drag could have held that thing, nor does this pitiful attempt at a debunk address the fact that the person was talking into a supposed hearing aid! The ear piece should be in the ear and the box in the pocket... Muppet! XD
