angel & fox: The gent, to me, seems not unlike a Ronald Colman type. Huh?17:23

Rush: Interesting, GS.17:23

Godwinshelley: Maybe pre-Coleman – not sure when Coleman started17:24

Louise: Cough Cough17:24

angel & fox: “Colman” here looks like his head is a size too big. To ME, anyway.17:24

Rush: Got it, Louise! 17:24

angel & fox: Probably came from being knighted. (“Sir George”)17:24

Rush: 17:24

LibraryJim: “he saved her life — like any Man would — but for some reason it caught her imagination”17:24

Louise: yes angel17:24

Dona: GS is this movie on the back of something else? I know I have it17:24

Dona: i think you told me before17:25

Godwinshelley: Back of Monte Carlo17:25

Len Freeman: carlo17:25

Dona: thank you17:25

Len Freeman: Ronald Colman was making the first Bulldog Drummond film about this same time17:25

Rush: HonoluLou, who was just here, will be sending out a nice surprise to everyone pretty soon.17:25

Godwinshelley: Coleman is listed as doing silent films – so he may have been a “type” then17:25

LibraryJim: Big doors back then. Geared for knights on horseback?17:26

Rush: He’s been putting it together for a month or so.17:26

Godwinshelley: Sounds fun Rush17:26

Godwinshelley2 has joined this room17:26

Rush: I think that you will like it.17:26

Louise: Eve, Eve?17:26

Len Freeman: A bit of overacting…. leftover from the Silents17:26

Godwinshelley: So the guy is only interested in her wealth?17:26

angel & fox: Len: thanks for the data! I’ve just been getting into Drummond lately; also been a Colman fan anyway—been learning from Web that the Drummond author is kinda way-outta-favor these days PCwise. Too bad.17:26

Mike n Rachel in DC: This guy seems vaguely Ronald Reagan-esque to me17:26

Rush: Yes, len.17:26

Rush: M/R, I see what you mean.17:27

Louise: No John. Bug off.17:27

Rush: His look.17:27

angel & fox: MnR: I agree. A good bit of that Other Ronald indeed.17:27

angel & fox: Louise: “Flit!”17:27

angel & fox: a BOUNDER?????!!!!17:27

Godwinshelley: Dona – do you need a time check?17:28

Mike n Rachel in DC: I was in me loose box, see?17:29

Rush: Too many “No sirs”….17:30

Louise: Yes sir17:30

Rush: 17:30

angel & fox: I’m waiting for some Harrumph, harrumphs.17:30

Rush: Those might be arranged….17:31

angel & fox: Now he doesn’t have to return all of Hillary Garth’s books, there.17:31

angel & fox: About ME?!!17:31

LibraryJim: Terribly free with information, isn’t he?harrumph!17:31

Louise: He is talking so slow is what I typed and it was blocked as spam!17:31

Godwinshelley2 has left this room17:31

Rush: Yes, Louise?17:32

Godwinshelley: This chatroom blocks spam?17:32

Mike n Rachel in DC: Congratulations…17:32

LibraryJim: who said “Elope”? You got it right17:32

Louise: Weird: it wouldn’t post the message, just said it was spam. Not canned ham, spam17:32

angel & fox: Rush—others of the Selection Committee: THIS flick is SPUN GOLD! I’m going to replay this, & use PROBABLY, SOONER OR LATER, EVERY LINE IN IT, somewhere, somehow, even—in fact, ESPECIALLY in INAPPROPRIATE SITUATIONS!!!17:32

Len Freeman: Have to run,,, be back17:33

angel & fox: sEE YA’S, Len!17:33

LibraryJim: cut off without a farthing! Let’s see if Eric loves her now17:33

Louise: Blocked again: it was the word “slow” with extra w at the end17:33

angel & fox: Looks like she’ll be flying off. Hope so, anyway.17:33

Mike n Rachel in DC: OH MY GOD WHAT A HAT17:33

Godwinshelley: Yes like a bathing cap out of wool17:34

Len Freeman has left this room17:34

Rush: What I started with last week’s Chat is an archive of each Chat.17:34

Godwinshelley: Len just left17:34

LibraryJim: looks like an old-time football helmet17:34

Louise: That’s no hat, it’s a space helmet17:34

cdirus: :)17:34

Dona: Yes Louise17:34

Mike n Rachel in DC: Lord Jesus it’s ugly17:34

angel & fox: LJ: a good antacid could help her save a farthing. Or two. Or fifty-two.17:34

Rush: I found I am able to highlight and copy and then past the dialogue elsewhere.17:34

angel & fox: “Let’s trade hats.”17:34

Godwinshelley: From the film?17:34

hounder: interesting that you can do taht rush17:34

Rush: Ah, things are looking up for our shady friend….17:35

Godwinshelley: Are you capturing the subtitles?17:35

hounder: all our typos immortalized17:35

angel & fox: Did the globes get bigger, or did the world get smaller?17:35

Rush: Yes. You can see the link below us.17:35

Rush: Chan is mentioned.17:35

angel & fox: hounder: we should hop so!17:35

Mike n Rachel in DC: They just kept renaming places, Angel17:35

angel & fox: 17:36

Rush: “One never knows what lies BEHIND THE CURTAIN.”17:36

Rush: “Walk softly, go far….”17:36

Mike n Rachel in DC: which curtain Rush?17:36

LibraryJim: even when not present, Chan is influential17:36

Rush: Yes.17:37

angel & fox: They NEED Chan TONIGHT! WE need him! These two don’t seem able to detect their way out of the office. Or stay AWAKE, even.17:37

Rush: Spin the globe…17:37

Mike n Rachel in DC: there was a softly softly catchee monkey line in a Mr. Moto…17:37

angel & fox: Catchee monkees!17:37

LibraryJim: the inspector seems quite puzzled by all that his boss is saying17:37

Rush: Some of the shots we see are very convincingly “location.”17:38

Rush: “Clap-clap….”17:38

angel & fox: These folks on heavy downers, or is it the humidity?17:38

Rush: Get the cotton ready….17:38

hounder: cover your ears17:38

Dona: oh that song17:39

angel & fox: Luna’s life is on backwards.17:39

LibraryJim: Luna has eyes for Eric, or does Eric have eyes for Luna?17:39

angel & fox: 7-up with Strych-9.17:39

Rush: “That’s the way, uh-huh-uh-huh, he likes it….”17:40

Paul M has joined this room17:40

Rush: Hello, Paul!17:40

Matt: Hello Paul!17:40

Paul M: hi gang. sorry i’m late17:40

Rush: 17:43

angel & fox: Eve has a date with another explorer.17:43

Mike n Rachel in DC: Caravansary?17:43

Rush: M/R: 17:44

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is that what you celebrate a year after you get back from the caravan?17:44

angel & fox: All alone but for her millions.17:44

Rush: Here we go…17:44

Godwinshelley: And there it is!!17:44

Louise: We explorers: the royal we and maybe all of us!17:44

Rush: 17:44

angel & fox: They’re playing our song!17:44

Louise: Your song, not mine17:44

Matt: 17:45

Rush: Shocking developments, here…17:45

angel & fox: MY REACTION TOO>17:45

Godwinshelley: Quick – hold up your iPhone and see if it recognizes that song17:45

Louise: Does someone kill that women for singing bad?17:45

Mike n Rachel in DC: Voice lessons would help…17:45

angel & fox: Do they have frying pans in In-jah?17:45

hounder: strident voice17:46

Rush: “Punji, punji, pungji….”17:46

angel & fox: Rush, just what i was thinking!! Looking NOW for my revolver, & i DON’T mean the Beatles’ album.17:46

Mike n Rachel in DC: The plot thickens…17:46

LibraryJim: agreed argggh17:46

Rush: Eve’s life just turned upside-down.17:46

Paul M: by the chat i think i’ve got the movie synced up to the right place17:46

Dona: Let me know when the singing is over17:47

Dona: i muted my tv17:47

Rush: Very good, Paul!17:47

angel & fox: Who was paying whom, & for what?17:47

Rush: Over!17:47

Louise: Tried to Shazam it: no result!17:47

LibraryJim: it’s over Lunas been dismissed17:47

angel & fox: DONA, it’s safe now!17:47

Dona: YAY!!!!17:47

angel & fox: Gonna put that on my voicemail.17:47

Godwinshelley: Yes that would be an interesting voicemail greeting17:48

Rush: That’s one way to avoid callers, Angel!17:48

angel & fox: They don’t HAVE siestas in In-jah. Do they? What about the Mexicans?17:48

hounder: wonder how many robocalls it would drive off?17:48

angel & fox: “BLECK-mailed?”17:48

Mike n Rachel in DC: Retribution for the spam callers, Angel17:49

angel & fox: MnR: THANKS! That’s what i’ll tell the police!17:49

Louise: I got that weird Social Security spam call this week.17:49

LibraryJim: most emotion I’ve seen him exhibit so far17:49

Mike n Rachel in DC: Or Blech-mail17:49

Paul M: give me his Lett-tah!17:49

Rush: “Hundreds of pounds” was a LOT in 1929.17:49

Louise: No,no, no17:49

LibraryJim: yes,yes,yes17:50

angel & fox: It was the Punji Punji.17:50

Rush: “I did it for YOUR sake.”17:50

Mike n Rachel in DC: LLPOF17:50

angel & fox: The name “Hillary” & “documents” seem to be perpetually ill-starred.17:51

LibraryJim: LOL17:51

Mike n Rachel in DC: It was his email server. I killed him for his email server…17:51

hounder: you really should give him up.17:51

Rush: Eve…JUST GET OUT!!!!17:51

angel & fox: HOW did this not get ELEVENTY-SEVEN Academy Awards?17:52

Louise: true angel17:52

LibraryJim: If he were honorable, he’d give her her freedom17:52

angel & fox: NOBODY could cheapen what SHE thought was love.17:52

hounder: i don’t think he can even spell honor17:52

Mike n Rachel in DC: Nor this movie, Angel.17:52

Louise: Lordy she is melodramatic17:52

Rush: Meanwhile…a musical interlude….17:52

Godwinshelley: Yeah – Karloff!!17:53

Rush: Boris Karloff…17:53

Rush: Yes!17:53

LibraryJim: better than the last musical interlude17:53

angel & fox: Louise, i think you graze the BOTTOM there. Eve’s gaskets seem to have blown outta sight, from here. Take a POWDER, Eve!17:53

Rush: Agreed!17:53

angel & fox: I’LL advance you the camel-fare.17:53

Rush: The smartest move she’s made!17:53

Godwinshelley: So much has to be read between the lines17:54

Mike n Rachel in DC: I won’t take you away. I’ve got a better idea. Murder.17:54

Rush: BB should loan her his book about disappearing made easy.17:54

Louise: 17:54

angel & fox: MnR: 17:54

LibraryJim: I wonder if the movie code prevented them from being more explicit about spouse abuse?17:54

Rush: You might have a point, LJ.17:55

LibraryJim: oh, wait, 1929? Pre-code yes>17:55

Mike n Rachel in DC: They did some solid hinting about sex…17:55

Louise: Could be Jim17:55

angel & fox: Rush: 17:55

Rush: But, they certainly gor the point.17:55

Rush: (got)17:55

angel & fox: Is there a SOUNDTRACK album available from this one?17:55

Rush: Yes, on cylinder.17:56

Mike n Rachel in DC: One of the great lines in cinema. I must go (dramatic pause) forward.17:56

Godwinshelley: There was some wind noise on that shot of their camel ride17:56

LibraryJim: Hays Code 193417:56

Mike n Rachel in DC: Gassy camels, GS?17:56

Rush: Again, the outside shots look very convincing.17:56

Paul M: i always thought Lois Moran was very cute. she also has the same first name as my mom17:57

Louise: GS: !!!17:57

angel & fox: If this was set in Switzerland & the Von Trapps could pass by, Eve & her man, the camel train, & the kids could join in a “round” including the Camelskinner’s Call, Chim-Chim-er-ee, & of course Punji Punji Punji.17:58

Rush: There is what must be a rear=projected scene with a minaret in the background coming up a little later that looks VERY real.17:58

Godwinshelley: Did you know that often prophylactics were used as in expensive wind screens on on-set microphones?17:58

Godwinshelley: as inexpensive17:58

angel & fox: Somebody scissored his tie on the subway.17:58

Rush: Angel: 17:58

Mike n Rachel in DC: I suppose the cast always had them handy?17:58

Louise: Yes, the tie!17:58

angel & fox: GS: I wonder what first suggested the thought to those wind-blown engineers.17:59

angel & fox: Are they gonna kiss?17:59

Godwinshelley: It was something we were taught in film school – I remember a question about it was on one of my exams17:59

LibraryJim: They needed something, and one of the engineers said “Hey, I’ve got an extra, let’s see if it works….”17:59

angel & fox: LJ: 18:00

Louise: Yeah, dames are like that…18:00

angel & fox: India needs more loafers.18:00

Rush: That was Eric’s first honest reaction!18:00

LibraryJim: Love these Brits wearing suits in the desert.18:00

hounder: unusual to have one’s back to the camera for so much of the scene18:00

Rush: Yes, Hounder.18:00

angel & fox: hounder, most perzeptive.18:01

Rush: A test here…18:01

Rush: Watch…18:01

Godwinshelley: Oh Rush – the system did not allow me to log into this chatroom with an identical nickname – just another interesting item about this new setup18:01

Rush: The “nerves” test.18:01

angel & fox: Pyromaniacs, too.18:01

LibraryJim: who wrote this stuff? 18:01

angel & fox: OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!18:01

LibraryJim: questions answered with repetition of question18:01

angel & fox: DONA, take COVER!18:01

cdirus: Hide Dona!18:01

Rush: Right on cue….18:01

Godwinshelley: I would think Earl Der Biggers wrote this initially18:01

LibraryJim: again??? 18:01

Mike n Rachel in DC: [fades]18:02

hounder: and here is the irritation again18:02

Rush: Biggers wrote the original story.18:02

Mike n Rachel in DC: Camel is rockin’18:02

hounder: worde than nails on the blackboard18:02

LibraryJim: pull over, that camel has a flat hump18:02

Rush: I would doubt he was too involved in the screenplay, though.18:02

cdirus: bactrian camals?18:02

angel & fox: hounder, you got THAT right. I can’t imagine what Guy Lombardo was WAITING for; the world was ready for him damm-sure.18:03

Rush: Are the Bactrian variety double-humped?18:03

angel & fox: Bactrian and viruses.18:03

Godwinshelley: I haven’t read this novel – Does it spend a lot of time setting up the crime – like a Perry Mason story – or is it directly into the Chan part?18:03

angel & fox: Interesting CUT.18:03

Mike n Rachel in DC: We could use a good dose of Chan about now.18:03

Rush: There is some build-up, but Chan is the major player later.18:04

LibraryJim: or No Doze18:04

angel & fox: Does Eve get West Pakistan, is that the deal?18:04

cdirus: just checked because I didn’t think bactrians were domesticated, but only one species is wild.18:04

Rush: In the book.18:04

angel & fox: It’s the Punji in her.18:05

Mike n Rachel in DC: I am going to take up writing scripts18:05

LibraryJim: I say Hello, but you say goodbye18:05

Mike n Rachel in DC: Boy: I want..18:05

Mike n Rachel in DC: Girl: Don’t say it18:05

LibraryJim: I say hello you say goodbye 18:06

Godwinshelley: Ugh – it18:06

Godwinshelley: it’s so slowwww18:06

Rush: Coleman lantern in the background….18:06

Louise: Gotta go for tonight so see you all next week!18:06

Godwinshelley: now Louise – it let me type multiple w18:06

Mike n Rachel in DC: Boy: Maybe we could just hint at it for a while?18:06

Rush: VERY slow.18:06

LibraryJim: what’s Ronald’s lantern doing in THEIR tent?18:07

Mike n Rachel in DC: Bye Louise!18:07

angel & fox: SCHOLARS: Does this strike you as a RELATIVELY daring script, & acting style, for its time? It does me.18:07

Mike n Rachel in DC: Girl: Don’t hint me18:07

hounder: old coleman lantern mantles wer radioactive18:07

Louise: Bye bye18:07

Matt: By Louise18:07

angel & fox: Louise, fare the well. Don’t listen to your nightmares!18:07

Godwinshelley: At least we have Karloff to look at – and he is fantastic in this with what little they have him do18:07

Rush: Good night, louise!18:07

hounder: nite louise18:07

Rush: Take care….18:07

Rush: see you next week….18:07

angel & fox: It’s just the Punji trying to haunt you!18:07

Rush: “Eran Trece”18:07

Mike n Rachel in DC: Lucky 1318:08

angel & fox: Your pupils are like black pizzas.18:08

Louise has left this room18:08

LibraryJim: murder, adultery, blackmail, seduction of a married woman, yeah, fairly so18:08

Rush: 18:08

LibraryJim: I mean, “Fairly daring”18:08

Mike n Rachel in DC: shameless hinting18:08

angel & fox: Mighta saved the boat-fare.18:09

angel & fox: Nowhere to go from here but down.18:09

Rush: The plane arrives.18:09

cdirus: sounds like chewbacca18:09

Rush: Note the reaction of the horses.18:09

angel & fox: Why walk a mile for a camel?18:10

hounder: lol@cd, but you’re right18:10

Rush: Spooked.18:10

angel & fox: Be a forced TAKEOFF once the Punji Punji starts again.18:10

LibraryJim: she’s got a bad feeling about this18:10

hounder: lol@angel18:10

angel & fox: thanks, h!18:11

angel & fox: Does it look to anyone ELSE like John’s helmet is GROWING while they rassle?18:11

Rush: Bo Ling, who appears in two Chan movies, “The Black camel” as the eldest Chan daughter, and in “CC in Shanghai” as Lee’s phone girlfriend, is the daughter of E.L. Park, who appears briefly as Chan in this movie.18:11

angel & fox: NOT A MO’ TOO SOON!!!!!18:11

Godwinshelley: Good Karloff stuff18:12

Rush: Yes, GS,18:12

angel & fox: Beastley Hott. Isn’t he the author, from Shrompwood Worms-on-Toast?18:12

angel & fox: If he wasn’t Beaten earlier he’ll be Beaten soon.18:13

Rush: Drinks are served…18:13

angel & fox: U Lie. Wasn’t he the Secretary-General of the UN in the ’60s?18:14

Rush: See if it fits….18:14

angel & fox: Dr. Scholl’s new 1930 collection. First look.18:14

Mike n Rachel in DC: If it does not fit you must acquit.18:14

Rush: U Thant, I believe.18:14

Dona: lol18:14

Rush: The Inspector just did John a favor.18:15

Rush: Did you catch it?18:15

LibraryJim: he put his hat over something18:16

Godwinshelley: And since women are property – we can search for her18:16

LibraryJim: quite deliberately18:16

Godwinshelley: LJ – the book18:16

angel & fox: No, Rush, i missed it. Can you ‘splain?18:16

Rush: “I said ENGLISH, please….”18:16

LibraryJim: ah, with the drawings18:16

Dona: yes18:16

Rush: When he placed his hat on the map on the table.18:16

hounder: yup. english is NOT his first language18:16

Rush: We will see soon….18:16

Mike n Rachel in DC: Obayment? President Obayment?18:16

Rush: 18:17

angel & fox: MnR: 18:17

Godwinshelley: Karloff says so much with his face here18:17

Dona: He’s good18:17

angel & fox: WHIP IT! Whip it good!18:17

Rush: Good work.18:17

Rush: Did he say, “I wonder if he speaks Swiss”?18:18

angel & fox: At the plane, and FANCY.18:18

angel & fox: Rush: 18:18

angel & fox: Reminds me of the recent politician who said in Austria they speak Austrian.18:19

Rush: THAT is what he covered with the hat.18:19

angel & fox: “I PITHED IN THAT HELMET!”18:19

Rush: 18:19

Mike n Rachel in DC: Not here?18:20

Rush: There they go….18:20

angel & fox: Lotta camel’s hair coats, for such a hot place.18:20

Rush: And…there SHE goes!18:20

Rush: Not wise to be out in the desert alone like that!18:21

LibraryJim: she studied the map, though18:21

Rush: I hope she did!18:21

hounder: and was only a few hours from tehran18:22

angel & fox: She’ll check GPS.18:22

Rush: Yes, and without a plane to take him there.18:22

angel & fox: hounder: On the map, John put himself on Iran, did he not?18:22

Rush: Ah….two days.18:22

Rush: This is the rear-projected scene I noted earlier.18:23

Rush: They even indicate a breeze coming in through the window.18:23

cdirus: It does look pretty good. 18:23

Rush: Call to prayer….18:24

Rush: “San Francisco”18:24

Godwinshelley: Like 5pm on a military base, when they play taps and you all are supposed to stop and face the flag.18:24

angel & fox: Sir Frederick seems dopey. I mean, BESIDES that. If he’s the example, the British Empire was 200 years late in wrapping up cuzza slow-talkers.18:24

LibraryJim: no bridge18:24

Rush: I think that this stock footage of the ferry arrival might have been used in “Charlie Chan’s Greatest Case.”18:24

angel & fox: The Cosmo Club! Where the elite meet the Beet!18:25

Rush: Looks like little Spanky there.18:25

cdirus: stampede!18:25

Mike n Rachel in DC: A lecture on the Persian desert.18:25

Rush: Yes!18:25

Rush: Eve is now an elevator operator.18:25

Mike n Rachel in DC: Well, it has a great deal of sand and little water…18:25

angel & fox: This must have REALLY BEEN a spectacular world, when everything was within these kinds of scale.18:26

Rush: Eric!18:26

cdirus: One year later18:26

angel & fox: What’s Eve’s big attraction, anyway?18:26

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, Eric!18:26

Mike n Rachel in DC: She’s adorable, Angel.18:26

LibraryJim: she inherited millions from her uncle, 18:27

Rush: Eve’s big attraction: John!18:27

hounder: guilt will do that to you.18:27

Rush: I suspect she left the money behind to get away.18:27

angel & fox: I’d like to see the Alternate Director’s Cut, where Eric GOES to the Cosmo & the audience who’d been TITILLATED by the Persian Desert come-on GET ERIC’S EARFUL!!!!18:27

Godwinshelley: I still like Eve over Bridget O’Shaunnasy18:28
