Mike n Rachel in DC has joined this room

Matt1: Hello M & R!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Good evening all!

Geno Cuddy: Aloha

Rush03: If we look at IMDB, we could see if he was involved in something else around the same time “The Sky Dragon” was made.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Aloha, Geno

Mike n Rachel in DC: Matt1, Rush03…we need a number !

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey MDA

mda19083: hello folks – is it monday already?

Mike n Rachel in DC: *vengeance

Rush03: “The Adventures of Charlie Chan”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Always nice to be personally welcomed by Charlie

Rush03: So far, chan seems to be speaking more slowly!

Rush03: yes, Mike!

Mike n Rachel in DC: …and he sounds somewhat less Australian…

Rush03: The Polo Cafe

Rush03: Sounds like a nice place!

Rush03: 🙂

Geno Cuddy: unable to send link to Roland Winters interview

Rush03: More distinct Aussie accents tonight!\

Rush03: Yes, Geno?

Mike n Rachel in DC: The cafe must be in Sydney

Rush03: Please share the link when you can!

Rush03: Yes, Mike!

Rush03: (Please give kind regards to rachel!)

sarabell2 has left this room

Rush03: “OK. Doc!”

Geno Cuddy: Message I get when I attempt to attach link: Your message hasn’t been sent. It’s like a flood. Wait for 20 seconds and change the message text or activate VIP status.

Rush03: AH!

Matt1: Happens to me all the time with the <tin can>

Rush03: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is Mrs. Chan Australian????

mda19083: matt – don’t you have VIP status?

Matt1: lol, no

Geno Cuddy: By the way Rush, I’d like to discuss the podcast idea with you further

mda19083: matt – youre ok in my book

Matt1: TYSM, lol

Rush03: Okay.

Rush03: My post was slow…hopefully that won’t continue.

Rush03: Counterfeit bills.

Mike n Rachel in DC: $20 is a popular bill to counterfeit

Rush03: Must be poorly made counterfeits.

Rush03: Yes.

Rush03: Counterfeit COINS, too?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Loving cups into counterfeit coins…a dastardly plot!

Rush03: The best a coun counterfeiter could make with metal would be fake silver dollars!

Geno Cuddy has left this room

Rush03: Would the effort be woth it?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Not nowadays. Better to make some meth in the kitchen. 

Rush03: That’s right, Mike!

mda19083: mike 🙂

Rush03: Back to “The Incomparable Charlie Chan”

Rush03: Risky job for Chan’s son!

Matt1: Rush, no Christmas decorating this year on the home page? :-)

Mike n Rachel in DC: Don’t call me Shirley!

Rush03: Right, Matt! Your mention earlier that December sneaked up on us is very appropriate!

Rush03: I will need to do that asap!

Rush03: Hopefully it will still work!

Mike n Rachel in DC: We’re putting up our tree…can hang a few ornaments, Rush

Matt1: I just noticed it today…..It’s always very festive!

Rush03: TYSM, Mike…and rachel!

Matt1: wb SB!

Rush03: WB…SB!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey SB…

sarabell2: Sorry, Internet died

Rush03: Matt?

Matt1: <tin can>

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sudden thought: are there any holiday-themed Chans? Can’t recall any offhand.

mda19083: 🙂

Rush03: AH!

Rush03: I can’t send images with my “new” name!

Rush03Rush03: I’ll just type tonight!

sarabell2: Was the tin can for my internet or did someone die on the program? Funny either way.

Mike n Rachel in DC: The Chan Who Knew Too Much. Hitchcock flick.

Rush03: M/R: 🙂

Rush03: A death in the program.

mda19083: Fiery Santa Claus – 1936 radio broadcast

sarabell2: OK, thanks!

Rush03: WFAN

Rush03: That is an error.

Rush03: In San Francisco, radio station call letters would start with a “K”

Geno Cuddy has joined this room

Rush03: WB, Geno!

Mike n Rachel in DC: WB Geno!

Matt1: wb, Geno!

Geno Cuddy: My computer was giving me a mess of trouble so I had to reboot

sarabell2: Hi again, Geno, your computer and mine are having issues

Mike n Rachel in DC: Cool music!

Rush03: Yes, Geno?

mda19083: IT Department cure all – reboot

Geno Cuddy: let me know when to start the film

Mike n Rachel in DC: Chan is solving the radio drama…still a few mins for movie time Geno.

Rush03: WSAN

Rush03: The “error” is planned, of course!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Foiled by Chan

Rush03: yes!

Rush03: “Foolishness can sometimes be wisdom.”

Louise has joined this room

mda19083: hello louise

Rush03: Good evening and WELCOME BACK!

Rush03: Yes!

sarabell2: Hi Louise, how are you?

Louise: Fine here sarabell

Mike n Rachel in DC: “There’s only one Charlie Chan!”

Louise: I was in New York last week for some museum visits

Rush03: Louise, as I have heard nothing back from the site migration people, I would happily accept any thoughts.

Geno Cuddy: Lets try this again, a Roland Winters interview from 1971: https://californiarevealed.org/islandora/object/cavpp%3A23974

Rush03: I am thinking on just going ahead and see what happens?

Louise: Really, Rush? They don’t want to do it?

Matt1: Thnx, Geno!

Rich Maine has joined this room

Mike n Rachel in DC: <kids-yeah>

Rich Maine: I never knew about this film, so it’s my first viewing!

Rush03: WELCOME to you!

Rush03: Yes?

Rich Maine: Sooooo excited

Rush03: It’s a unique one!

sarabell2: Hi Rich, I do not think I know about this film either.

Louise: Unique is definitely the word for it

Rush03: BOTH sons Numbers One and Two are in it.

Rush03: Yes, louise!

Rich Maine: I had to download after getting the email

Rush03: and there is an interesting fight scene later in the film!

sarabell2 has left this room

Rush03: 6 1/2 minutes to go…

Geno Cuddy: Admittedly, as a pure mystery, FEATHERED SERPENT is quite weak, it was from an old western script after all, but as a film with both Keye Luke and Sen Yung it is more than a worthy viewing

Rush03: Yes, Geno!

Godwinshelley2 has joined this room

Rush03: GS!

Godwinshelley2: Greetings all

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey GS!

Godwinshelley2: This week I watched the final (unaired) episode of “Coronet Blue” with Keye Luke and he does some brush painting in it

Rush03: “Riders of the Whistling Skull”

Rush03: Where did you find it, GS?

Rush03: 4 minutes…

Godwinshelley2: Kino Lober put out the boxset WITH the final episode

PaulM has joined this room

Geno Cuddy: interestingly, not only does FEATHERED SERPENT share a script with RIDERS OF THE WHISTLING SKULL, but also a star, Robert Livingston.

Rush03: Please ready your films at the opening title…

Rush03: Pause there. please.

Rush03: GO!!!

Matt1<GONG>

Rush03: Title…

Matt1: Hello Dona!

Rush03: Music….

Rush03: Hello, DONA!

Rush03: Good evening!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Looks very Aztec

Rich Maine: No fog!

Rush03: yes.

Dona: The music is familar

Rush03: And yes…no fog!

Matt1: Nice BIG font for Keye!

Rush03: Indeed!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Good point, Rich. Must be a low-budget Monogram picture!

Geno Cuddy: I just saw Keye Luke in a Monogram film called LET’S GO COLLEGIATE, one of those Frankie Darro films. It features Darros regular sidekick MANTAN MORELAND. If you also recall, Darro played the crooked jockey in CHARLIE CHAN AT THE RACE TRACK. An interesting film for Chan fans

Mike n Rachel in DC: If I were Sen Young I’d be pissed about the font thing

Rush03: Posada de San pablo.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sielito Lindo

Rush03: Maybe THT’S why he was not in “The Sky Dragon”!

Rush03: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: (sp)

Rush03: Yes, Mike.

Matt1: Was thinking the same thing Rush, lol

Rush03: 🙂

Louise: Everybody in a village know wevrything

Rush03: Yes, Louise!

Louise: everything

Geno Cuddy: I just saw Keye Luke in a Monogram film called LET’S GO COLLEGIATE, one of those Frankie Darro films. It features Darros regular sidekick MANTAN MORELAND. If you also recall, Darro played the crooked jockey in CHARLIE CHAN AT THE RACE TRACK. An interesting film for Chan fans

Rush03: yes!

Louise: Cool info Gene

Rush03: It’s fun to see Chan cast in other films!

mda19083: road trip

Rush03: Looks like they are driving through the stretts of Tijuana circa 1949.

Dona: I will have to look that movie up.

Rush03: Avenida Revolucion?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Tommy/Jimmy’s Spanish needs a little work…

hounder: he not only can’t play, he can’t sing either.

Rush03: A Little work…yes…

Rush03: OUCH!

Matt1: <dog whine>

Rich Maine: Silence

Rush03: Back country near L.A…

Geno Cuddy: I love that about Winters, he retains the warmth of Oland but the acidity of Toler

hounder: could he sing inral life?

Rush03: Palm Springs here?

Rush03: Chattsworh area here?

Rush03: Dona, have you ever see the west San Fernando Valley, near Chatsworth?

Dona: Yes Rush. I have a cousin who lived out there.

Rush03: I think that that’s where the outdoor scenes of this one were shot.

Dona: It looks like it could be that area back then

Louise: #1 son and #2 or #3

Rush03: AND, we can see in some scenes that there was a Santa Ana going on.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Charlie loses track of those early kids…it’s been a while

Rush03: Yes, Mike.

Louise: Santa Ana winds? Brutal.

Rush03: Jimmy (Number Two) became Tommy (also Number two) when the Winters era started.

Dona: I work in Santa Ana. It looks nothing like any of this now. LOL

Mike n Rachel in DC: Never heard of Santa Ana winds…have to google

Rush03: 🙂

Louise: M&R: hold on to your hats

Rush03: Yes, Mike.

Geno Cuddy: cant send

Geno Cuddy: message again

Dona: I lose my voice every time they start blowing. It’s the winds off the dessert.

Mike n Rachel in DC

Rush03: Dry, desert winds come in and that’s the worst time for fires.

Dona: yes this year is very dry

Rush03: BB is “psychic”!

Louise: The Santa Anas are also thought to be earthquake weather or the time all the crazies come out

Dona: there are crazies out here all of the time

Rush03: YES!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Just looked them up. Wow.

mda19083: in the chat room?

Rush03: Yes, Mike!

Mike n Rachel in DC: That’s a given, MDAA

Geno Cuddy: Doesn’t it bother anyone else that once Winters assumed the role of Chan that Sen Yung’s character was renamed Tommy which was the name of Benson Fong’s character in the earlier Monogram Tolers

mda19083: yikes

Rush03: “Heebie-jeebies”

Dona: But next week I will be driving from Fayetteville, NC to Peekskill, NY

mda19083: keep an eye on the harmless ones

Louise: Geno:it always confuses me

Rush03: Are you in the region now, Dona?

Dona: I have never been to those places it should be interesting.

Dona: no i’m at home

Mike n Rachel in DC: The Tommy/Jimmy thing bugs me, Geno. One of the Chan foibles that has become a charming idiosyncrasy.

Geno Cuddy: Its like, okay, Tommy is number two son, but number two son is Jimmy, number three son is Tommy. UGGGH!

Dona: I leave next week on wednesday. My grandson is getting out of the Army, Ft. Bragg, moving to Peekskill, I’m going to help with the move.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Fayettevile? What brings you there Dona? (Mike lived in Durham for many years)

Rush03: Very good, dona!

Rush03: Lights out!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Ah. Just remember it’s pronounced “FED-vul”

Rush03: Question: WHO turned out the lights???

mda19083: who turned out the lights?

Louise: Well that’s inconvenient

Louise: Can?

mda19083: that’s gotta hurt

Matt1: <tin can>

hounder: ..

Rush03: Chan should suggest that an accomplice is inside that room!

Mike n Rachel in DC: 30 years of detecting, and Charlie still gets fooled by the “lights out” trick.

Geno Cuddy: but who in the room has a motive to do so, Rush?

angelsnake+feathered foxx has joined this room

Rich Maine: Yes who killed the lights!

mda19083: angel!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Peekskill!

Dona: Hello Angel

Dona: and Foxx

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hello Angelsnake & FF

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Peekskill??!!!

Rush03: That “lights out” event is in the majority of our films, I believe!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Peekskill?

Rush03: Angel!

Geno Cuddy: its a Chan staple

Dona: I’m going there next week

Rush03: Missed your arrival!

Rush03: WELCOME!

Louise: “I’m not thinking about the money” they all claim

angelsnake+feathered foxx: We JUST arrived! Almost SEVENTY degrees in Boston, out frolicking with friends!

Rush03: Yes, Louise!

Geno Cuddy: Dang, Winters has swag! Love him!

Rich Maine: Yes very warm here today

Louise: Rush: Lights Out my favorite repeated trick

Dona: That warmer than it is here. WoW

mda19083: no frolicking in the chat room

Rush03: louise: 🙂

angelsnake+feathered foxx: What’s the “time”?

Rush03: Too dangerous, MDA, yes.

Godwinshelley2: So what’s our viewing for the rest of the month?

Godwinshelley2: 17:00

Rush03: 17:00

Mike n Rachel in DC: 17:10

hounder: ..

Geno Cuddy: logical to see SKY DRAGON next

Godwinshelley2: 17:15

Rush03: 17:20

Rush03: 17:30

Godwinshelley2: 17:30

angelsnake+feathered foxx: “My name not Phooey, it’s Phoo”, said Chairman Mao?

Rush03: 17:40

Dona: I will bring our movie while i’m back east and hope to be able to drop in.

angelsnake+feathered foxx: You pray games?

Rush03: Very good, dona!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: The Water Pitcher!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: EVELYBODY CLAZY

Rush03: Next week: “The Sky Dragon”

mda19083: close the windows

angelsnake+feathered foxx: I LOVE The Sky Dragon! Tetragene!!

Geno Cuddy: While I love having Keye Luke back it is awkward when you realize he is older than the man playing his father

Rush03: Bad shot!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Not to be outdone by Jimmy’s toss in Panama…

mda19083: yes – tetragene

Rush03: Geno: “Willing suspension of disbelief>”

Louise: Ah, the dart from blowgun is also a familiar weapon

Geno Cuddy: indeed

Rush03: 🙂

mda19083: we got a pigmy arrah

Geno Cuddy: Keye Luke never aged a day after leaving in 1938

Godwinshelley2: Don’t tell the TSA about blow-guns or they will take away all our straws

Rush03: Chan is the most well-dress of the exploration team!

Rush03: Yes, GS!

Rich Maine: As always…dressed to kill

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Pardon, i’m reminded it was Murder Over New Jork that featured T-gene.

Rush03: Yes, Angel!

Geno Cuddy: Is Keye Luke wearing eye makeup?

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Hi Geno!! You get my message on Fbook?

Geno Cuddy: No I did not

Louise: My archaeologist husband’s words of wisdom: everything is underground.

Rush03: Didn’t see, Geno.

mda19083: what’s wrong with eye makeup

Rush03: “La Cucuracha.”

Geno Cuddy: Its just odd as he never wore it at Fox

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Geez, Geno, i’ll check to see if it sent.

Rush03: Listen CLOSELY to the words as Tommy sings ALL the lyrics!

Geno Cuddy: you may have sent it to the wrong account

Rush03: “Mar-i-JUANA que fumar…”

Louise: “DOLPHINS”

Rush03: Cue dolphin.

Rush03: YES!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: In Firesign Theater’s “Police Street”, Harold Hump asks Peggy (Mrs. Officer Random) Koolzip if a local delinquent doesn’t “wear [swallowing a snicker] eye [snicker] makeup”?

Geno Cuddy: Mantan Moreland is effing amazing, uggh, why wasnt he bigger, he should have been a Stooge, I would have watched the Stooges if Moreland was involved

Rush03: The only song Tommy knows!

Rush03: He would have been a lot better than Joe Besser, IMHO!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Black Stooges would have swept the chips from the table!

Geno Cuddy: or curly joe

Godwinshelley2: He starred in films – even in the title – like “Mantan for Mayor”

Geno Cuddy: Angel, thats disgusting

Mike n Rachel in DC: There’s a “spooky” movie with him too.

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Have a taxicab picked up. Bring a forklift.

Rush03: 🙂

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Hold da phone.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rachel is intrigued by Black Stooges

Rush03: BB and CC are the two most wrongly attired of the party!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: They put the bricks in luBRICation.\

angelsnake+feathered foxx: They coulda had a V-16.

Rush03: MM would have been PERFECT, IMHO. Right height, included!

Geno Cuddy: Winters is so good, why oh why do people hate him, its the nose isnt it

Rush03: Unfortunately, Columbia Pictures would probably not have been willing to take any risks with a black stooge, sadly.

Rush03: But, I admit, I think of the possibility often!

Rush03: Opportunity missed.

Rush03: Santa Ana winds in this scene.

Rush03: To me, this looks like the terrain near to Chatsworth Park.

Geno Cuddy: yes, its also a shame that aside from the two appearances in the Toler Chans, that Moreland and his partner Ben Carter never made movies together

Mike n Rachel in DC: Winters is good, Geno. I think he got stuck with a few less-than-stellar scripts in these later films.

Rush03: Ben carter died too young, also.

Geno Cuddy: Mostly Mr. Wong remakes, hence why Charlkie is based in San Fransisco now

angelsnake+feathered foxx: All the Ben Carter movies were B.C.

angelsnake+feathered foxx: What are chats worth?

Rush03: Also, SF played a part in the Biggers Chan stories at times.

Geno Cuddy: whats that supposed to mean

angelsnake+feathered foxx: A FRASHRIGHT!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: rEAL BUMPERS!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Real bumpers!!

Rush03: They missed the tomb-opener stone.

angelsnake+feathered foxx: FRASIER?

Geno Cuddy: By the way, speaking opf Mr. Wong, has anyone seen the last in the series with Keye Luke, is it any good?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Phantom of Chinatown? It’s ok…but he’s not a great leading man in our opinion.

Rush03: Yes, it’s good, and it is also Keye Luke’s ONLY starring role in a film!

Geno Cuddy: The Wong films are dull, sadly.

mda19083: i can’t go any lower

Dona: lol

Louise: Ah Hah! secret police of course

angelsnake+feathered foxx: mda: We’ll get a short order cook.

angelsnake+feathered foxx: These wide-open spaces are all drugs now.

mda19083: good – i am hungry

Geno Cuddy: is this the only Chan movie where the police are competent?

Rush03: Robert LIVINGSTON as Professor STANLEY.

mda19083: i presume

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Oooooof!!

Rich Maine: The eyes!

Rush03: Yes!

Geno Cuddy: he is in the original version of this story RIDERS OF THE WHISTLIONG SKULL.

Rush03: TYSM, Geno…

mda19083: we are all out of cans

Rush03: 🙂

Louise: hard to find tin cans in the jungle

Rush03: A “pinch-kick.”

angelsnake+feathered foxx: She looks like a buzzsaw did a reverse Mohawk on her hairpile.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Angel: lol

Rush03: Just look outside the camp after dinner!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Ah, the undying column of fire. They always pull that.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Kwahom

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Ah, buck up, James Lee. A cat and a laser pointer could sew this up from here.

Rush03: Took me a while, but I got it, Mike!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: The TELEPHONE COMPANY. Let’s write that down.

Mike n Rachel in DC: (new hairstyle, Rush)

angelsnake+feathered foxx: If Captain Street marries Perry Mason’s secretary, she’ll be Della Street Street.

hounder: bb has great quips.

Rush03: The only one wearing “sneaking up on someone” colors is BB!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: TYSM

Rush03: Everyone else wears bright clothes.

Mike n Rachel in DC: True, Angel. But maybe they’re related…

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Female subscribers. Hmmm.

Rush03: Or a coyote.

mda19083: it was a hound

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Brainwaves were big, huh, Rush?

Mike n Rachel in DC: This sounds like Dr. Zodiac’s music

Rush03: of some type, yes!

Geno Cuddy: It was Hounder

Rush03: Kukutan (Kulkulcan) – (Aztec: Quetzalcoatl – “Feathered Snake”) One of the major deities of the Aztec, Toltecs, and other Middle American peoples.

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Dr.Z had great music. He was what is hip. Or was hip. Is hip, but he’s, well, you know. Donkey overloaded, then, kaput.

Rush03: 🙂

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Wifi coulda prevented this.

Geno Cuddy: yeah, but Heddy Lamarr didnt invent it yet, Angel

Rush03: Too many years in the future, Angel!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: That door is gonna think twice now.

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Nor Hedley Lamarr!

mda19083: yes angel

Geno Cuddy: or Footley Lamarr

Rush03: Funny line there!

hounder: i feel like a liar

Louise: There are still wonderful images of the feathered serpent in Mexico

angelsnake+feathered foxx: I didn’t get a harrumph.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Damn. And I thought they were old Chan movie posters…

Geno Cuddy: Hey Louise, how’s George?

Rush03: The oper stone!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Graphiti is sopistipated.

hounder: very prominent hieroglyphs. no wear at all

Rush03: Yes!

Geno Cuddy: I love the concerned parent that Birmingham becomes sometimes, he isn’t just the “scared darkie” that is a vast misjudgement, he is a hilariousw, sometimes fearless, fatherly presence, especially when Charlie is off doing other things for the case

Rich Maine: Poor BB

Rush03: That figure in the background proves that there WAS a Polynesian connection with North America!

angelsnake+feathered foxx: (51:00)?

Mike n Rachel in DC: They only captured him for the entertainment…didn’t want Charlie to have all of the fun

Rush03: yes, Angel.

Rush03: 51:25

angelsnake+feathered foxx: Eggzellent. We were scrambled.

angelsnake+feathered foxx: “Noplace fast”: try loweroglyphics.
