This is interesting and intriguing. The behavior of the person really looks like they are talking on a cell-phone. But, that probably comes from the bias we have today of seeing people do that all the time. There probably is a benign 1920’s explanation for that kind of behavior. An historian of the time period might know of some device that would be held up to the face for some other reason (to avoid bad smells for instance).


As there were no cell networks around, it must have been something else.

Or maybe the guys who restored the film snuck it in as a kind of "easter egg".
