Hawaii_Steve: Nice.

Matt1: Cued here

Hawaii_Steve: Cued here.

Rush: Another is about Chabing and about a general in her life!

Matt1: Scandalous!

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: No.

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!

Rush: MDA…:)

mda19083: I am in the witness protection program

Rush: AH!

Rush: 🙂

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.

Matt1: Yikes!

mda19083: what!

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.

Hawaii_Steve: Hollywood

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…

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

Rush: Yes!

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.

Rush: Yes.

Hawaii_Steve: Very interesting story.

Rush: She was in the US during the war.

DanVenture: Great to hear Charlie Chan again!

Dona: Hello Dan

Hounder 2: Hi dan.

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: In metal underwear?

Rush: I have been fortunate in that regard throughout the years.

mda19083: DV – we are all “shiftless” here in the chat room

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: “Much may be revealed”? Not sure we wanna see that.

Rush: Yes, DV, about hearing Chan!

Hounder 2: That’s a loud coat

Rush: Recalls the old TV test patterns.

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: I ordered plaid paint for my Chan rom.

Rush: AH! Bugs Bunny can help you with that one, Angel!

Hounder 2: Lol@ruah

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: The disappearance of the Indian from the test patterns was bad enough; now there’s no dedicated test pattern at all, just programs that amount to same.

Rush: CC walks into the trap…

Dona: lol

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: Come On Down To His Boat Baby

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.

Rush: Boring, but better than nothing!

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: Rush, i did the same! Also said Good Night to the Indian too!

Rush: Sounded like an actual police radio broadcast earlier.

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: Her loud plaid tipped ’em off.

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: The Adventures of Birmingham Brown could have run for YEARS!

Rush: I do not disagree…

Rush: “Not very funny…”

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: Forties thugs were such good speakers.

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: “And change that coat!”

johnr: And chewing gum allc the while!

Rush: Yes, both of you!

Rush: Captain Kong gets a bit condescending here…

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: Kong just put his foot in it.

Rush: “Mr. Policemen…”

Hounder 2: Brb dog walk

TetrageneAngel+Ringo Foxx: Great scenes coming. If only Brando and the “Waterfront” crew could have overlapped!
