Old Woman on a Cellphone
A cell phone in 1928? Those pesky time-traveling aliens!
In a brief scene from footage shot at the premier of Charlie Chaplin‘s 1928 film “The Circus,” a woman walks into the shot with her hand to her ear, appearing as if she is speaking on a cell phone. Of course, cell phones didn’t exist in 1928. Not even the giant Zach Morris bricks.
Time Traveler in 1938?
During the analysis of the film footage of the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963, a mysterious woman was spotted. She was wearing a brown overcoat and a scarf on her head (the scarf is the reason for her name as she wore it in a similar style to Russian grandmothers – also called babushkas). The woman appeared to be holding something in front of her face which is believed to be a camera. She appears in many photos of the scene. Even after the shooting when most people had fled the area, she remained in place and continued to film. Shortly after she is seen moving away to the East up Elm Street. The FBI publically requested that the woman come forward and give them the footage she shot but she never did.
In 1970 a woman called Beverly Oliver came forward and claimed to be the Babushka Woman, though her story has many inconsistencies. She is generally regarded as a fraud. To this day, no one knows who the Babushka Woman is or what she was doing there. More unusual is her refusal to come forward to offer her evidence.

Is this proof that the stories might be true? We will never know.
