Hawaii_Steve: There is a Xmas short subject that TCM plays each year. It features J.C.N.

Rush: I say that the title is reall an exaggeration!

Rush: His ending was not much sadder than any person’s.

Hawaii_Steve: It’s a real tear-jerker. It makes me cry each time I see it.

Rush: he did die from the effects of smoking.

Mike in DC: *cough*

Hawaii_Steve: Yes, Mike.

Rush: This is a british newsreel of the events of 1957.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: MnR: Foxx tore the one tissue in half. Legal department here advises that while the Kimberly-Clark people appreciate the capital K, the word “Kleenex” is a proprietary asset. They want to know how many millions you have as of today.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: NOT millions of tissues, either. Heavier paper.

Mike in DC: Nice father/son banter in this one

Rush: “Ex-Chinese policemen.”

Rush: Brixton Prison

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: “Prison” is an unusual last name. I LIKE “Brixton”; sounds like a speedracer, or a newsreader. “With the news, oiiiiii’m, uh, Brixton Prison…

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: “

Rush: A punk rocker?

Rush: “18 last week.”

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Yes, Rush! Yes!

Rush: Slipped a mickey!

Rush: YOW!

Matt1: <tin can>


NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: FINALLY a t.c.!

Mike in DC: Charlie smells a rat

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Pops there could get a gig as a set designer after his Brixterm is over!

Rush: This is another instance of CC trying to save someone from a wrongful charge.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: I like Anthony E’s hair here. A little dab’ll do him in!

Rush: This is another repeated theme: someone lying to save a loved one.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Look for an oriental. Ah so.

Rush: “Karate blow”

mda19083: Ah Sing?

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: PM/Inspector there about to use the phrase “you people”—

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: EXPERT TIMING: Number1son, CC did a shoutout TO YOU in the close there!!

hounder: charlie always wins.

Dona: Go Charlie

Rush: CC has some moves of his own!

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Always!!

Hawaii_Steve: A very different feel than that of the Chan films.

Rush: “Take out the garbage…case closed.”

Dona: <YAY>

mda19083: short and sweet

Rush: Did your copy have the commercial lead-in from Barry Chan?

Hawaii_Steve: Note the misspelling of Earl Derr Biggers’ name in closing credits.

Rush: Sort of a “bonus” on the disc.

Mike in DC: Charlie wins by K.O.

Rush: YES!

Matt1: Pretty cool

Rush: And yes: “Earl Der Biggers.”

Mike in DC: Der Biggers. German relative?

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: BLOODSHED HERE!!! I/”we” stepped away to chop up makings for a late supper, sliced a slit in our thumb! Ouch!


Rush: Oh, well…

mda19083: foiled again!

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: THANKS, Rush! When did NSY open for bad business?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yikes! Tourniquet for Angel.

Rush: Incrimiating talk behind the closed door!

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: MnR, Already bound up!

Mike n Rachel in DC:w00t:

mda19083: no more typing tonight from Angel

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Baldy there looks like Khrushchev’s slow cousin.

Rush: cute voice.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: rush, we agree. She should be a cocktail singer.

Rush: Alice.

mda19083: 2nd story pete

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Alice deserves an extra packet in her pay packet.

Rush: 🙂

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Not extra pay, just an extra packet.

mda19083: combat pay for her

Rush: “One of you.”

Rush: Anyone have a prime suspect, yet?

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Dr.Pearson looks a little like Brian Epstein’s slow cousin.

Rush: AH!

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: mda: I’ll combat for her pay!

Hawaii_Steve: It’s all about the dough.

Rush: Always!

Rush: 🙂

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: HS: Those Benjamins! Even in Queenie’s realm!

Hawaii_Steve: I confess. I am the prime suspect. Just call me “Street-Wise Steve.”

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: CC doesn’t mind disturbing UGLY young ladies.

Rush: Ah-HA!

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Chan be in the alley, be looking for food.

mda19083: tomorrow is another day!

Rush: Too much kindness can cause some blindness…

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Anyone else keep confusing the old-wine / new-wineskins / new-wine / old-wineskins thing? That, and adding acid to water or water to acid. I’m not touching anything, needless to say.

Hawaii_Steve: That one actor DOES look like Khrushchev. Maybe things were slow in the Kremlin.

Rush: Not a good move!!!

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: “TWERP”?

Rush: “The little twerp!”

Rush: YES!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Just like Steve McBirney!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Look for him in the wax museum

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Britain didn’t even have full-size mice for years after the war.

Rush: We used that word in the early-mid-”60s!

Rush: Yes, Angel?

Dona: Yes Rush

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: WE used Boone’s Farm Apple Wine! With NO wineskins!

Rush: “Disturbing waters of Crane household.”

mda19083: a mad seamstress?

Rush: AH!

Dona: YES Angel

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: She’s got the voice of a mouse.

Rush: She does.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Mrs.Crane, looking down from, well, you know, is getting really cranked.

Rush: Chan is nearing an accusation…

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Alice practically threw her out, too; out the third-floor window.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: FREE SHOES!!\

Rush: Hello, Peter.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: A right veritable Emmett Kelly, he is, oy, royght!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Mr. Chan againe

Rush: Yes.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: If Chan only turned the OTHER direction when he & the ruffian make the street, they’d find a lunch hall where a new group called The Rolling Stones are looking for a fifth.

Dona: lol

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: NEAUWWW! NEAUWWW!!!

Rush: Good tactic!

Rush: OopS!

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Oh, FROCK!

Rush: A-HEM…!

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Alice just lost that extra packet.

Rush: Miss alice.

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Alice looks a little like Margaret Thatcher’s slow cousin.

Rush: Sort of.

mda19083: alice doesn’t live there any more

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: mda =) :lol: :-D :-D :-D

Rush: “Alice doesn’t live there anymore…”

Rush: Now a guest of Scotland yard…

NewAdventurers Angel+Foxx: Maybe Chan will give her the ride to ScotYard on a double-decker bus.
