Time traveller caught on film?

Irish filmmaker, George Clarke, noticed a peculiar scene on a clip from the DVD extras of Charlie Chaplin's movie, The Circus. The clip in question features what appears to be a large woman talking into a device in her hand that  many people think is a mobile phone or a walkie talkie. Since the video is originally from 1928 it as caused quite a stir and has gone viral over the Internet.

Take a look for yourself and see what you think.

Even if we disregard the fact that there are plenty of explanations for this footage (e.g. she is covering her face from the camera, or she has a hearing aid), one major problem is the lack of cell towers and satellites needed to use a mobile phone. Furthermore, if you could time travel, why would you take yourself there? Some believe that the woman is trapped in the 1920, some believe the video is fake while others (like myself) simply remain unconvinced.

Where would you go if you could time travel?
