Rush: Online, but NOT youtube!

Rush: I found one at Vimeo.
Matt1: Interesting….hoping for no unextected commercials
Rush: I scrambled a little last night when I discovered it missing!
Rush: Hopefully NOT!
Matt1: Hope there is the finale!?
Rush: That could make 20 minutes into 30!
Matt1: lol, yes
Rush: If not, I will see what I can find.
Rush: We will see….
Rush: So, tonight’s adventure could be an….adventure!
Matt1: and the finale?
Rush: I still need to check.
Rush: last night I didn’t have a lot of time.
Matt1: It would be our luck
Rush: Maybe I will check later tonight….
Rush: Well, I can take a quick look….
Matt1: It is what it is, don’t worry about it
Rush: Yes…it’s gone from Youtube.
Rush: I will find a replacement.
Rush: We can roll our serial in 4 minutes….
Matt1: Ready to go
Rush: Ready, too.
Rush: One nice thing…no commercial at the start!
Rush: 3 minutes…
Rush: Maybe the volume will be better with this copy!
Rush: 60 seconds (for any late arrivals!)
Rush: 30 seconds…
Matt1: We’re off!
Rush: Volume about the same…
Matt1: Not too bad
Rush: I saw a part of a movie on TCM yesterday morning…an early appearance of Lloyd Bridges.
Matt1: Pretty cool to see, huh?
Rush: He played a bad guy in a noir film.
Matt1: Younger than in this film?
Rush: She’s still looking downward while speaking!
Rush: A little older, actually.
Rush: I think the film was 1947.
Matt1: Toler era?
Rush: The old hiding under the bed trick!
Rush: Those grenades must have exploded UP!
Matt1: lol, yes
Rush: Cy Kendall….
Rush: Handwriting check….
Rush: My volume is just as weak as with the Youtube versions!
Matt1: Mine seems a bit better, I think
Rush: I have my computer’s up all the way.
Matt1: My wireless bus are close to max
Rush: It’s nice when I see people in these films that make me feel okay about my own wasteline!
Matt1: Steve “liked” a post/picture I did this weekend….Good to see he’s around
Rush: Yes! I suspect he’s busy.
Rush: In Hawaii it’s only 2;00 p.m., I believe.
Matt1: I always thought how awkward it must be on west coast with time zones….HI is another story
Rush: I wonder how the props people felt about making that Nazi symbol for this film?
Matt1: What a way to go! Ouch
Rush: Someone put a lot of work into it!
Rush: A smashed skull!
Rush: Pretty good English for the ememy…
Rush: Cliffhanger coming!
Matt1: His gun is bigger than hers
Rush: FINAL chapter next week!

Rush: Do all of us have the DVDs of that series?
Matt1: NYC or Comic Con?
Nothere has joined this room
Matt1: Hello NT!

Louise: Halloween anyone?
Rush: We are heading toward it, Louise….
Rush: Our Virtual Party approaches….
Louise: I have my character picked out already.
Nothere: I must object to the continued lack of bobbing for apples, at the Halloween party. It’s the only traditional Halloween party game I know.
Rush: Very good, Louise….
Rush: 3 1/2 minutes….
Mike n Rach in DC has joined this room
Mike n Rach in DC: sprint in, panting
Nothere: GENTLEMEN START YOUR ENGINES!

Mike n Rach in DC: Rach blows hunting horn
Mike n Rach in DC: sips smoothie
Godwinshelley2: Bobbie on watch

Nothere: In London you hunt fox. In Russia fox hunts you.
Rush: “Live action” title card….
Rush: NT: 🙂
Rush: The headlines!
Nothere: Start the presses.
Louise: As opposed to Unstable murder?
Rush: “Paul Grey Guilty!”
Mike n Rach in DC: Paul Grey must hang!
Nothere: Sale at Sax
Rush: Louise: 🙂
Mike n Rach in DC: Hey Paul, smoking will shorten your life.
Phil has joined this room
Mike n Rach in DC: Oh..never mind
Rush: Ah, let him smoke…not much to lose at this point….
Louise: A bear ate her!
Dona: Hi Phil
Matt1: Hello Phil!
Cdirus: Hi Phil!
Phil: ALLOOHHHAAAA to all my Chan friends!
Nothere: That is one screwy method of execution in England.
Nothere: Aloha to you.
Phil: Aloha to all my Chan friends. Good to see you all
Mike n Rach in DC: Aloha Phil!
angel & fox has joined this room
Mike n Rach in DC: not white fox FUR!
Nothere: But is it fox fur?
Mike n Rach in DC: Hey! Angel & Fox. Just in time for the fur coat!
Matt1: Not WFF
Rush: (and Fox!)
Nothere: Hey angel. Careful Fox. Were getting ready to hunt you.
Cdirus: Is there any chan movie that doesn’t have fur in it?
Matt1: Hello A & F!
Rush: Good evening!
Dona: Hi Angel & Fox
Nothere: Wax Museum>
angel & fox: ‘allo! ‘ow are you blokes & loiiiiiidies? Bloiiiiimey!
Nothere: Castle in the Desert?
Rush: CD….that is the “rule of thumb” it seems!
Mike n Rach in DC: I bet the “Hawaiian” Chans don’t have furs.
Nothere: Cor Govenor. Just got back from the pub eh?
angel & fox: Consider the Fox hunt fini!!
Cdirus: The Trap (too many swimsuits)
Mike n Rach in DC: ‘eelo, Charmin’
Rush: I would say that the “hot weather” films lack the furs.
Godwinshelley2: These “half-furred” outfits make me shake my head
angel & fox: I say, what’s the Big Ben on our running time?
Mike n Rach in DC: 4:15
angel & fox: Roight you ahhhhhh!
Cdirus: I was thinkin there was fur in Rio somewhere.
Nothere: But have we enough ascots?
angel & fox: She looks hot. Probably wood & coal heat, & animal skins.
angel & fox: BODY was severed from HEAD. That’s why SHE’LL never be on TV.
Mike n Rach in DC: This is one of the least stylish dresses in the whole Canon.
Rush: This man seems to ne new to talkies!
Nothere: Enter the lead.
angel & fox: Oughta be shot out of the Canon.
angel & fox: Who IS this guy?
Rush: He sounds like some of the actors in “Behind That Curtain”
Nothere: Just beware of his collar. I’m not so sure that thing doesn’t bite.
Mike n Rach in DC: boom
Rush: And…CC has arrived as I was blathering….
angel & fox: Silence only by contrast. All quiet on ALL fronts till 1927, eh wot?
Mike n Rach in DC: Nice tie-pin
Rush: “Barstow Case” mentioned.
Rush: Front seldom tell truth. To know occupants of house, always look in back yard.
Every front has back.
Little things tell big story.
Godwinshelley2: Was Barstow Case in any of the films
angel & fox: CC: Get them to pay indebtedness NOW, while pound sterling is still high. Pound will get pounded before long, Charlie.
Mike n Rach in DC: Charlie has a funky bow-tie
Nothere: Cor Govner I know me duty. But I do ave a bit of the gout.
Phil: Careful the way you pick up that used hanky Charlie
Rush: it is one of the non-documented cases!
Mike n Rach in DC: Rush–sounds like a fertile field for a creative mind.
angel & fox: Notty: the gout was crumbling from my Water Closet walls, cor blimey.
Dona: A helper
angel & fox: Where’d they GET that picture, REALLY?
Rush: And, if any of our fertile minds would like to do so, we could consider the revival of the writing of a Chan script as was last done back in 2002!
angel & fox: HIGH TIME to get the Monkees to the typewriters, then!
Rush: “Charlie chan at College”: http://www.charliechan.info/id72.html
Louise: Rush, why does this movie seem stylistically so much older than our films from the last several weeks?
Rush: “LaFong…Carl LaFong….”
Phil: Bond. James Bond
Rush: Louise, good point.
Nothere: But how are you gonna feed ten thousand monkees. And I’m not cleaning up after wards despite my ealier typo.
Rush: It may be because this was the first Chan movie that was NOT based on a Biggers story?
Louise: I’d join into a group script writing!
Godwinshelley2: Capital L – small A – Capital Fong – small o, small n, small g
Rush: GS: 🙂
angel & fox: CC2College was MORE worthy than the EXECRABLE 1970s entry which name i mercifully forget.
Rush: One of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies!
angel & fox: GS—i detect a Fields Fan!
Rush: Non-Chan films, that is…
Rush: Watch the door!
Rush: It will “stick”
Rush: See that?
Dona: I don’t like this part
Nothere: There were only 6 actual Chan novels and there were 50 movies. I think most weren’t based on the book.
Rush: Dona, he should have known better.
Phil: That’s one BIG rock
angel & fox: Louise, you ARE Essential Personnel. Even in gloom of night WITH rain IN snow, your presence at script room is required.
Godwinshelley2: Some were based on Mr Wong stories
Nothere: Not to be confused with the Rdford house in Sussex.
Rush: He could have at least given the benefit of the doubt.
Godwinshelley2: moving camera – in 1933!
Rush: I like to pick up on the “small talk” in these party scenes.
Mike n Rach in DC: I’m with Dona. It feels like he’s betraying his beloved. Not cool.
angel & fox: Notty—i’m trying to do the math. I live not far from MIT. I may put them on the task. Six books, 50 films—no, they DON’T come out even.
angel & fox: “NAPPY!”
Rush: nappy – (Mainly British) Of a horse that is jumpy or irritable; nervy.
Louise: Bunny is a pain
Nothere: Course the first problem is after we get our pitch for the script, the Hollywood people would call us all racists.
Phil: I was going to point that out NT
angel & fox: And the rain (and snow) in Spain falls gently on the…the…gimme another…mmm…i wanna kish you…CLUNK.
Nothere: Bunny needs a hot toddy.
Dona: I agree NT
Rush: NT…that’s always a possibility these days!
Mike n Rach in DC: Each film is 12% of a book.
angel & fox: Notty: They won’t WAIT for the pitch.
Nothere: But as for the script itself. I have about 12 ideas or so:) How many have you thought f over the years?
angel & fox: And each book is 12% of a film. Do that way they come out even?
Rush: If “they”want to find something offensive…they will “find” it!
Rush: yes, Angel!
Dona: They always do.
Louise: Nothere, look at my earlier comment on what happened at Comic Con this week. I went to Asian character development and representation sessions and there is an interesting shift in ideas about how to write Asian characters.
Rush: That’s the way they were done.
angel & fox: 12 ideas at 12% makes 144% of a film. You’ll be Marketing Director, Notty!
Godwinshelley2: So Chan solves a murder that happens on the set of “Crazy Rich Asians”
Rush: Actually, it was often done in “serial” fashion before we put things together as a full-blown script.
Nothere: I saw that, but I wasn’t going to make you type out the hour or so of the panel. Anything really goo come out of the panel?
angel & fox: I always write Asian characters with a brush. Funny, they write back with typewriters. Monkees fans, i guess.
angel & fox: TYSM!
Louise: A serial! Yes! What will our Chan look like?
Rush: We see that Oland has “found” his take on Charlie Chan by this movie.
angel & fox: I’ll bet that’s just a dickey on the butler. Under his jacket, bare as Christmas.
Rush: That probably happened sooner, but, sadly, we have nothing to go by!
Nothere: Chan. of course Louise. Course they’ll want a young Jet Li to play Chan.
Louise: How dare you insult his dickey!
Rush: Angel: 🙂
Rush: “Saints ALIVE!”
Nothere: Look murdering men creeping about the house.
angel & fox: “Please leave me a loan…” How much would you like, ma’am? Five hundred? A thousand?
Mike n Rach in DC: creepin’ about the ‘ouse, even.
Rush: That’s the BEST way to get someone to say something: “Don’t say anything to anyone!”
Nothere: Now we know where Charlie’s kids get their breaking and entering habits. Somehow I didn’t think it was from Ma’ side of the family.
Rush: Murray Kinnel.
Dona: Agreed Rush.
angel & fox: Mmmm. Jet Li with Louise. Would NEVER insult THEM!
Rush: We see him in some varied roles in several chan movies.
Mike n Rach in DC: Is the the artist in “Camel?”
Rush: recall him as “Mr. Smith” the beach comber in “The Black Camel”?
Louise: I wish there were a sound effect for Bunny.
Mike n Rach in DC: Never mind. 🙂
angel & fox: Rush: Maybe a Mama Chan’s P.O.V. would mollify the molls of feminist fur.
Rush: Yes, M/R!
Rush: True, Angel!
angel & fox: He wants to BEE with her, she won’t BEAR with him. Let’s call the whole thing arf, Fido.
angel & fox: No starch in sheets!
Mike n Rach in DC: Interesting couple in background
Rush: Murrey Kunnel:
Rush: The Black Camel: Smith
Charlie Chan’s Courage: Martin Thorne
Charlie Chan in London: Philips (alias Captain Seton)
Charlie Chan in Paris: Henri Latouche
angel & fox: MnR, you READ my mind!!
angel & fox: I was thinking they could use some LSD.
angel & fox: The WEAK end?
Louise: This Charlie’s language has taken a step back to early immigrant, not the looser language he adopted in Toler’s recent films.
Mike n Rach in DC: Ha. Angel and Mike must be from the same generation…
Rush: Angel…you are ON tonight!
angel & fox: They were just domestic partners. Split at the continent, every April.
angel & fox: Rush, TYSM! I must say, i AM feeling the oats!
angel & fox: So happy to be back!
Rush: You were missed!
Nothere: But how’s your side Angel?
angel & fox: Was there some LAW said you had to USE the arms on armchairs?
Nothere: And we hope we miss during the fox hunt.
Rush: Our weekly meals benefit fro a bit of spice!
angel & fox: Notty, i am PINE. How ard Hughes?
Rush: NT, I am always please that this little fox gets away!
angel & fox: Oughta call a plumber.
angel & fox: Stable geniuses.
Rush: Imagine…a little fox chased by an army of hunters!
Nothere: Oh I’m bright and snide arake.
Louise: “where the deuce” is a phrase I want to adopt
angel & fox: A horse is a horse of course.
Rush: Yes, Louise!
angel & fox: But a cigar is sometimes a smoke.
Rush: Chan searches….
Nothere: But not a Cuban. That’s a felony and your all under arrest. I’ll take those as evidence.
Phil: Sometimes a horse is a cow.
Rush: And a bloke is usually a bloke….
angel & fox: I like the brickwork: genuine imitation 16th Century styrofoam.
Rush: Missine knife…
Mike n Rach in DC: That’s Sherlock Holmes, Phil. 😉
angel & fox: (redacted)
Nothere: Sure take the knife. Doubleheaed axe right there, but noo you have to be traditional.
Mike n Rach in DC: And the 17-minute gap on the tapes, Angel.
angel & fox: The BODY was lying beside the (redacted). This guy’ll never be on TV.
angel & fox: Calling Rose Mary Woods!!
angel & fox: French Police. Another contradiction in terms.
Phil: Now we’re going to see the horse that’s a cow.
angel & fox: The WEAK end box.
Mike n Rach in DC: The Loose Box, Angel.
Rush: Two things come to mind:
angel & fox: I thought Rutherford B. Hayes completed Reconstruction.
Rush: 1> “He doth protest too much.”
Nothere: Don’t mind us we just a bunch of wealth fancy dressed british people wandering the woods at night. Nothing to see here.
angel & fox: Gar-day loo!
Rush: 2. “He doth assist too much.”
Nothere: Oh did I mention were drunk?
Rush: Be right back…
angel & fox: Notty, you are SO right. Let’s have NOTHING to do with them.
Mike n Rach in DC: Seems like a clumsy knife.
angel & fox: REAL Hamilton was SHOT, & all the $10 bills couldn’t stanch the flood.
Mike n Rach in DC: NOW is the time for the “stable” genius.
angel & fox: AVALANCHE!
Louise: I have the subtitles on for this one. Do you still do that, GS?
Rush: Yes, Angel.
angel & fox: HAY!
Phil: Behold..the horse who is a cow.
Nothere: Well he may be in a stable, but is he really that stable?
angel & fox: I BEG your pardon!
Rush: Hellcat is not named Hellcat for nothing….
Mike n Rach in DC: Could have been Hellcow maybe?
Nothere: Well if you were a horse named cat, you would be upset too.
Louise: Hey Rush, did you ever post the Chan comic books (not the daily comic strips but the books)?
Phil: We’re looking at a clear case of transspecies animal.
Mike n Rach in DC: I would at least be very testy, NT
angel & fox: NT:
Rush: Of course, we have seen Lake before….
Mike n Rach in DC: Transspecies? Pronouns: they/them
Louise: or pronouns: IT
angel & fox: There are Keye Luke-shaped holes in this film.
Nothere: Bunny knows what he’s taking about. Not so much what hes’s saying.
angel & fox: MnR:
angel & fox: Bunny funny. Want money. Option not renewed.
angel & fox: HOUSEboy? Or HORSEboy?
Rush: Yes, Angel…good observation!
angel & fox: I have GOOD TEACHERS.
angel & fox: Your LUCE box?
Dona: what is a Luce box?
Nothere: So guys ever feel your being watched. Lik say by a horse?
angel & fox: “Noble animal”: Where will we heard that before again?
Rush: Lake is rattled.
angel & fox: TYSM!
Phil: Charlie, I’d ask him now if I were you.
Nothere: At a racetrack maybe?
angel & fox: Or CUTTING UP a HORSE.
Rush: “Cat of Hell”
Mike n Rach in DC: You have to take that up with McDonalds, Angel.
angel & fox: It’s a riddle wrapped inside an enigma inside a Cortina.
Rush: YES, Mike!
Rush: Angel…gou are making my night!
Rush: I cannot keep up with the “Angelisms”!
angel & fox: MnR, if i even come NEAR they know i’ve been at BK, their Arch-enemy.
Louise: Doesn’t she know Chan has a watch?
angel & fox: Rush: I’m doing a reverse-Costanza: trying to come in on a high note!
Mike n Rach in DC: All over the ‘ouse!
Godwinshelley2: Louise yes this has subtitles but I was rushing to get it started and didn’t get that selected before the GO
Godwinshelley2: My one moment to save the day – and I blew it
Phil: Right. We’ve got hedges 6 feet high and 3 feet thick and Ray Milland throws his cigarette butts OVER them.
angel & fox: She sounds like a BLUUUUUUDY DICTATOR!
Mike n Rach in DC: Dude, Charlie has 13 children. He’d understand, believe me.
Phil: Wait for it
angel & fox: Phil: He (Ray Milland) probably drunk. It’s his Lost Weak End.
Phil: CONFIRMED.CUE THE CAN
angel & fox: YES WE CAN!
Rush: TYSM, Matt….
Phil: TY SO M
Nothere: I know who did it. That is obviously a mustache of evil.
Dona: Thank you Matt
Rush: Must have been a small caliber bullet.
angel & fox: He looks JUST like Mr. Potatohead!
Mike n Rach in DC: Mr. Chang.
Rush: “Mr. Chang”
Phil: Small calibers work pretty much just as well as large caliber bullets
Louise: Quite unfunny.
Rush: Yes, Mike.
Phil: This is a low body count movie tonight.
Rush: Murder not very good joke – quite unfunny.
Little things tell story.
Phil: Aside from Lake, just the horse.
angel & fox: Royal Ballet—or BULLET?
Rush: Oland looks GREAT hear as Chan, I feel.
angel & fox: Phil:
angel & fox: This guy is headed for the TOP of the scrap heap.
Mike n Rach in DC: Poor Lake
Nothere: Well folks this is where I leave you. Be sure to light you lanterns and dust off the fingerprint power. The nights are about to get dark. But fear not. I’m always not here:)
Louise: Mr. Cheng!
Godwinshelley2: night nt
angel & fox: TYSM!
Rush: Thacker is well-suited to be a country cop.
angel & fox: If only he had a country.
Phil: Aloha NT
Dona: goodnight NT
Rush: Good night, NT!
Mike n Rach in DC: Good evening, NT. It’s a comfort to have you not here. 😉
Matt1: Take care NT
angel & fox: Gnite NT! We’ll think of you & lock all doors! Hmmm.
Rush: Next week: TWO episodes from “The New Adventures of Charlie Chan”
Nothere has left this room
angel & fox: Saints ALIVE? Or…
Mike n Rach in DC: Surely cocaine was involved in acting the part of the housemaid.
Rush: I hope that most of us have DVDs of the series….?
Rush: Maybe there are some online to watch….
Louise: Agreed Mike/Rach
Mike n Rach in DC: most of us, Rush.
Rush: I see the sets selling throughout the Internet….not expensive.
angel & fox: I was wondering if fentanyl had been developed at this point.
Rush: If ordered tonight, should arrive on time!
Mike n Rach in DC: nudges Rachel, points at Christmas list
angel & fox: AARON BURR is HERE?
Louise: Unfortunately I must depart for the evening. I had a shingles vaccination this morning and my arm feels like it is going to fall off!
Rush: Not here….
Mike n Rach in DC: Hope you (your arm…) feels better soon!
Rush: Louise….I have had that one too.
Mike n Rach in DC: NT already left, Rush
Rush: I understand.
angel & fox: Louise, if we find your arm we’ll unlock the doors & put it outside with the horse.
Louise: How long did the reaction last, Rush?
Rush: That’s right, mike!
Rush: It lessens by the next day.
angel & fox: BUSINESS of chasing fox?
Rush: Still “there” for a couple or few days.
Louise: Cool. See you all next week. I have the DVD.
Rush: A “reminder.”
Phil: Aloha Louise
Rush: Take care, Louise!
angel & fox: I BEG your pardon!
angel & fox: I BEG your pardon!
Mike n Rach in DC: Cheers, Louise
Dona: Goodnight Louise
angel & fox: Jeez, Louise!
Godwinshelley2: Night L
Mike n Rach in DC: He was probably awesome in a bi-plane
angel & fox: What have you GOT?
Phil: That’s the biggest caterpillar I’ve ever seen!
angel & fox: He looks like Eddie Haskell.
Louise has left this room
Rush: Of some interest…I care for a 96-year-old gentleman every-other weekend. This weekend, while we talked, he mentioned living in Roswell, NM after the War.
Dona: He does Angel
angel & fox: The Award for Overacting goes, and goes, and GOES, to…
Rush: to make a long story short, he was there for the “Roswell Incident.”
Godwinshelley2: Roswell – was he there for the “incident”
Rush: Now, I was never a real “believer,” but….
Godwinshelley2: Ah ha – did he see it himself
Godwinshelley2: Was it the metal bits or the substituted “balloon” he saw
Mike n Rach in DC: Did he get beamed up to the alien ship or anything cool?
Rush: He told me that his wife’s father knew the rancher on whose land thw incident happened!
angel & fox: There’s no picture of the Sovereign on the walls. Hmmm.
Godwinshelley2: Interesting – you should record his talking about this
Rush: he mentioned him telling about what he saw.
angel & fox: I’D buy land if i could be sure an incident would happen.
Rush: That included “little people” who were dead.
Mike n Rach in DC: Any fun photos, Rush?
Rush: Anyway, that’s it.
Godwinshelley2: Wow – that is interesting
Rush: No photos.
Dona: Sounds interesting
angel & fox: You can’t get good aerodromes anymore.
Godwinshelley2: And did he discuss the MIBs later
Godwinshelley2: Another partial “furry” outfit
Dona: I hope he has written it down.
angel & fox: Rush (& Writers Team): How about JUSTIN TRUDEAU as CC in the 2020 version?
Mike n Rach in DC: We need the UFO guys to take some pix of the aliens…just a selfie or something
Rush: He wrote a little in a small book he wrote some years ago about his life.
Rush: next time I see him, I’ll ask him more.
angel & fox: Alien selfies. Better than what’s on now.
