mda19083: matt – yes!!
Rush: One is a short plea from an actual Chinese princess….
Matt1: Cued here
Hawaii_Steve: Cued here.
Rush: Another is about Chabing and about a general in her life!
mda19083: always wanted to know more about Chabing
Rush: And the third is a tribute to Barbara Jean wong, who plays Princess Mei Ling in tonight’s movie.
Rush: The info about Chabing is pretty unusual!
mda19083: and she is no Disney princess
Rush: Chabing is one of three names she went by.
Hawaii_Steve: Interesting. selection.
mda19083: I also have 3 names I go by – no details will be forthcoming from me on that though
Rush: As Steve can attest, it is not always easy to come up with extras directly relating to a Monogram chan film!
mda19083: I am in the witness protection program
Hawaii_Steve: You are so correct, Mr. Rush.
Rush: We actually had some light snow flurries in my area this afternoon!
Hawaii_Steve: I’ve been reading the Karloff Lugosi book.
Rush: Yes, steve?
Rush: Yes…winter knocks at Fall’s door!
Hawaii_Steve: It states that only two Monogram buildings are standing today (1990).
Rush: Supposed to have higher temps later this week.
Matt1: How is the family adapting to the change of seasons, Rush…..especially the cold & snow?
Rush: How many buildings were there originally?
mda19083: the annotated jeckyl and hyde will be released tomorrow
Rush: Do we know?
Hawaii_Steve: “The Story of a Haunting Collaboration” by Gregory William Mank.
Rush: Or, was it sort of a mish-mash of structures?
Rush: Sounds like a good one, Steve.
mda19083: where abouts was the M studio located?
Hawaii_Steve: There is conflicting information about the buildings and number of stages at Monogram.
Hawaii_Steve: Sunset Blvd.
mda19083: thanks – I am ready for my close up
Hawaii_Steve: I have read about two large studios and one small studio.
Rush: In 2 1/2 minutes, let’s see the first extra…
mda19083: mr DeMille
Hawaii_Steve: There are images on the net.
Rush: There’s the link…
Hawaii_Steve: John Carradine, Huntz Hall, etc. talk about filming at Monogram. Always a rush job.
Hawaii_Steve: Crank ’em out. Get ’em out to the public.
Rush: I had to wait for commercials…
Rush: Cued now…
mda19083: cued here
Rush: 45 seconds…
Hawaii_Steve: Executives never renewed the copyright on Monogram film. No value in them.
Rush: 30 seconds…
Hawaii_Steve: Princess is first image.
mda19083: quite a bit of regalia there
Matt1: Very nice
Rush: Evidently from 1930.
Rush: Republic of China.
Rush: And before WW2.
Hawaii_Steve: Apparently shot in the usa by Fox Movietone newsreels.
Rush: during a royal visit, no doubt.
Hawaii_Steve: Sadly, the Chinese do not feel that way today.
Rush: So, that was a relatively recent Chinese princess.
Rush: We see Princess Mei Ling tonight.
Rush: Tell me when you are ready, please…
Hawaii_Steve: Cued here.
mda19083: cued up here
Rush: 30 seconds…
Rush: 20 seconds…
Hawaii_Steve: First words: 18 year old …
Rush: At age 14!
mda19083: the 3 blowhards – love it
Rush: AUTHOR’S quote…
Rush: $15,000 was like about $300,000 today.
Matt1: Sad ending
Matt1: Age 46
Hawaii_Steve: Amazing story.
Rush: But at least now we have a little information about Chabing.
Rush: And who whould guess of her relationship to MacArthur?
mda19083: we now know the rest of the story
Hawaii_Steve: MacArthur was an old army dog.
Rush: Could also explain the general’s deep desire to liberate the Philippines.
mda19083: he did more than smoke a pipe
mda19083: rush 🙂
Hawaii_Steve: As a tour guide at the SS Missouri, we spoke often about MacArthur. Never heard any of this stuff.
Rush: I would guess not!
mda19083: it is on You Tube – it must be true
Rush: Although, who among us is perfect? We are all human, subject to flaws…
Hawaii_Steve: If true, this happened a decade before WW2.
Hawaii_Steve: Very interesting story.
Rush: She was in the US during the war.
mda19083: perfection is overrated
Rush: If it is even attainable!!!
Hawaii_Steve: Ms. Cooper is in tonight’s film?
Rush: Barbara Jean Wong…
mda19083: cued here
Rush: About 3 minutes long…

Rush: When I was a kid, I would wake up very early, and, turning on the TV, all I could watch was the test pattern!
TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: Round the endless curve of Police Street.
