Rush: Yes, Matt! remember how a long time ago, TV commercials were typically 60 seconds long?
DanVenture: I wondered what all the music was about…
Rush: And there were two at a time.
Rush: Yes, DV.

Louise has joined this room
Louise: Hey Chan Clan!
Fredsmom: Hi Louise!
Matt1: Hello Louise!

Fredsmom: I love that SB!
Rush: The end…
Louise: Fredsmom: I always thought Fred was your son!
Len Freeman: hi louise
Rush: Closing music…
Louise: Good to be going to London with all of you.
DanVenture: Got a taste of the radio Chan voice
DanVenture: At least
Rush: I am not tsure that the next radio drama next week continues this story. The other parts might not exist….
sarabell2: So what kind of dog do you have now?
Fredsmom: He was my furbaby I loved with all my heart. I do have 2 daughters, however! so Im REALLY Lindseysmom and Kourtneysmom! 🙂

Louise: Sorry to hear that, Rush
hounder: oh my. thanks for repeating that rush. is there a way we can help her?
Rush: So, as we have done for years, we will dedicate this evening’s film viewing to the memory of her father…
sarabell2: Oh that is so sad. I just went to a viewing yesterday. Was he sick?
Louise: I hope she looks at this chat and can see our condolences.
Rush: He seemed to have taken a turn for the worse, and that’s why GS drove again back to Indiana to see him and her mother.
Rush: 6 1/2 minutes to go…
Louise: GS has been doing so much travelling to see them.
hounder: the change will be hard for her mom
sarabell2: Where does GS stay?

Phil & Mrs Phil: At the rate he’s sucking in that cig, he’s gonna’ die of cancer before they hang him.
angel & phox: She got her hat in a pie contest.
Rush: The Prison Matron, whom we will catch a glimpse along the way, was Mrs. McMasters in “The Black camel.”
angel & phox: Future Eddie Haskell.
Louise: Pie? Did someone say pie?
sarabell2: He is!
Rush: Looks like him, doesn’t he?
Phil & Mrs Phil: He does look like him, doesn’t he?
angel & phox: Everyone should have a Home Secretary.
Dona: yes a & p
Rush: There in the background.
Phil & Mrs Phil: Rush, you’ve got to stop reading my mind.
angel & phox: Doesn’t he? We need to get Broderick Crawford to put out a BOLO.
Louise: The thoroughly horrible coat
Rush: Yes, Phil?
sarabell2: Looks like roadkill
angel & phox: “Merely the mouthpiece of the state”. A bit unsanitary, eh wot?
Dona: i think it’s a dress Angel
Louise: Yes sarabell!
Dona: you were right Angel
angel & phox: Dona, you usually hit the nails on the beans. I defer to your expert tease.
sarabell2: She is devastated but her hair looks nice
angel & phox: Leon Trotsky woulda been good here.
Rush: Tasteful hat.
angel & phox: I mean Leon Ames. Actually, Trotsky too.
Dona: When she stood up i could see that it was a coat
Phil & Mrs Phil: Give her another coat, if you want to help
angel & phox: She just had her chin repointed.
Louise: She’s gruesome
Rush: “They say the head was almost severed from the body…”
sarabell2: You all are so funny
Rush: Just a touch of “silent” acting earlier.
angel & phox: Sarabell, it’s all because of you. You step away, poof!
angel & phox: I want to see the Away Secretary.
Rush: This is our first look at Chan since “The Black camel.”
Mike n Rach in DC has joined this room
sarabell2: I am a fan of your humor. you cannot tell that I am laughing here
Rush: We can see how far Oland has developed the character!
hounder: hi m n r
Rush: Mike and Rachel!
angel & phox: British Lion owes CC L168 and counting.
Mike n Rach in DC: Wafting in via phone…
Phil & Mrs Phil: Sarabell, I haven’t been here in months. When did you arrive at this forum?
Rush: Happy you were able to make it tonight!
Mike n Rach in DC: We too!
Dona: Hi Mike n Rach
angel & phox: M & R!!! Sit on our ottoman, or ottomen!
Fredsmom: Hi Mike n Rach!
Phil & Mrs Phil: Wash your hands Charlie.
Rush: One of our biggest gatherings in a while, tonight!
hounder: charlie shows off his deduction skills
angel & phox: Are you snow-dusted, M/R?
Len Freeman: How many film between Black Camel and London?
Phil & Mrs Phil: Hi M&R
Rush: Yes, Hounder!
angel & phox: Goodbye.
sarabell2: Because I get whatever that sad thing is in the winter, and CC cheered me up. And I really enjoyed Rush’s site. He makes CC very real.
Mike n Rach in DC: We are movieless at the moment but that can’t deter the Chan clan.
angel & phox: “immediately she returns”. Infuriating manners of speech.
Rush: Len, “The Black Camel ” from 1931…this one, 1934…
Rush: Between “Camel” and “London” there were three films that are now lost.
Mike n Rach in DC: We are slightly ensnowed Angel.
angel & phox: M & R, you shall be on the Queen’s List. When she gets it she’ll send you the Queen’s Movies.
Phil & Mrs Phil: So are we Angel
Len Freeman: So some good time for Oland’s development of CC
Mike n Rach in DC: We bow and curtsy appropriately.
Len Freeman: Can feel the difference between this and Camel
Phil & Mrs Phil: Not for long, Neal
Mike n Rach in DC: Hi FM!
Rush: “Charlie Chan’s Chance” (1932), “Charlie Chan’s Greatest Case” (1933), and “Charlie Chan’s Courage” (1934).
Louise: Camel seems so raw to me, like the beginning of a cake that is not yet baked
Len Freeman: Ray Milland was also making a Bulldog Drummond film about this time
Rush: “Begin at beast place – beginning.”
Rush: Oh, those typos!
Mike n Rach in DC: Agreed Len. “London” feels much more like the series is established.
Rush: Nice dragon-patterned silk robe on Chan.
angel & phox: Phil & Mrs.Phil, this seems to be a wide one. I am in Boston & we are a few inches deep in partly cloudy.
Rush: Note the ring Oland wears.
Rush: The jade “Buddha” ring.
angel & phox: Accord here too. The Chan style seems defined here.
Phil & Mrs Phil: We’ve only got a couple of inches. It’s snowing now, making the roads tricky.
angel & phox: Where are you, Phils?
Rush: Note the door sticks soon…
Rush: As it is thrust open.
Phil & Mrs Phil: East of Pittsburgh by about 40 miles.
Louise: No? You bum!
Fredsmom: good eye Rush
angel & phox: Rush, was the sticky door an oversight?
hounder: drama queen much?
Phil & Mrs Phil: Latrobe, PA, actually.
Rush: Yes, always try to stick up for your future in-laws!
sarabell2: A & P we had a weatherman here, he got a call from a woman telling him to come shovel the 6 inches of partly cloudy off her driveway.
Rush: Meanwhile…at the manor…
angel & phox: I love this kinda music.
hounder: where phill? i grew up outside pgh
Rush: Yes, Angel!
Mike n Rach in DC: It would be so much better if she didn’t snoop on the conversation…
Rush: Agreed, Mike!
Louise: Swell and keen are words we don’t use enough
Mike n Rach in DC: I miss “cool.”
Phil & Mrs Phil: Latrobe’s the closest “big” town hounder.
angel & phox: Latrobe!! They still have glass-lined tanks? Before i straightened out, i slipped the Rolling Rockers enough do-re-mi to pay for more than a few of those tanks.
Dona: I like them all
Rush: nappy – (Mainly British) Of a horse that is jumpy or irritable; nervy.
sarabell2: I say Oh swell all the time. It beats 4 letter words
Rush: Boar’s head above the fireplace…
angel & phox: And bully spelt backwards is yllub. In case you try to welsh.
Rush: YESm SB!
Mike n Rach in DC: Unless you spell it swel
Phil & Mrs Phil: I’ve got a moosehead in the basement.
Rush: I usually go for “DRAT” a la WC Fields!
angel & phox: Those buttons came from the Santa suit in Seasonal.
Phil & Mrs Phil: Sideboob there. Sorry, couldn’t resist.
angel & phox: DRAT is good.
Rush: Angel: 🙂
Dona: better coat than before
Rush: Note the butler?
angel & phox: Punch her ticket. Cancel her. Give her the cracked claw.
Rush: “Mr. Smith” from “The Black Camel.”
sarabell2: Love WC Fields. He hated Philly, grew up there. Learned to juggle so he would not starve to death, he was 9.
Rush: Murray Kinnell.
Phil & Mrs Phil: Yeah Rush, he had a brother who was a beachcomber. Got shot.
angel & phox: TYSM!
Rush: Yes, SB!
Phil & Mrs Phil: They were identical twins.
hounder: i know where latrobe is. i grew up in plum and worked with several guys who lived in latrobe
Louise: The butler!
sarabell2: Yes, I have noticed MK, his brother was the cutest thing. Had a wild Hawaiian sweetheart
angel & phox: SB, i was just talking Fields with a Young Person today! Described The Bank Dick, extolled its ending (“A hearty handshake”)!
Phil & Mrs Phil: I thought your accent sounded familiar hounder.
angel & phox: How much do you require, Mum, 500? A thousand?
Mike n Rach in DC: The butler did it! (Sort of)
Rush: Very tragically, the child of an actress who is in “Charlie Chan at the Olympics” drown in a pond at WC Fields’ home. Katherine Demille.
Louise: nice entrance, Charlie
sarabell2: WC was fascinating. Handsome when young.
Rush: Yes, Louise.
Fredsmom: did not know that Rush
hounder: pifflesnort is also a good substitute
angel & phox: Rush, i never knew the name, or perhaps forgot it. Was she any “relation”—?
angel & phox: All over the ‘ouse!
Mike n Rach in DC: Does Hounder say yin’s?
Rush: I think that I saw it when looking at information for Kathering Demille.
hounder: used to say youse guys
angel & phox: “Richmond” gives him The Look.
hounder: lol then i graduated to y’all
Phil & Mrs Phil: I really mangled it – used to say “younz guys.”
sarabell2: We even say youse down here. But we do not say PEOPLE!
Mike n Rach in DC: My family is from Hazleton…more east but still many fun expressions.
Rush: “DeMille married actor Anthony Quinn on October 2, 1937 at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills. They had five children: Christopher (1939-1941), Christina (born December 1, 1941), Catalina (born November 21, 1942), Duncan (born August 4, 1945), and Valentina (born December 26, 1952). Their first child, Christopher, was found drowned in the lily pond of W.C. Fields at age two.” (From Wikipedia)
Louise: Back in the days when people knew how to dance
Rush: forgot that her husband was Anthony Quinn!
Fredsmom: Very interesting Rush
angel & phox: How many English manors had how many antlers per manor?
Rush: 57 hours…
sarabell2: Thank you Rush
Len Freeman has left this room
Rush: Angel, probably as many as the number of angels that can dance on the head of a pin…
Mike n Rach in DC: However many, Angel, it was tough on the antlered population…
Rush: The movie “Godford Park” (from around the year 2000), has a connection with this movie!
sarabell2: We had a neighbor who was anti gun. I asked her how that deer head got up there above their mantle. I was not asked back.
Rush: Another typo…
angel & phox: M & R, i don’t doubt Rudolph himself kept an Airborne Sombrero (J.Peterman, $95 in grey or buff).
Mike n Rach in DC: Oh dear. A mouse appeared from under our stove.
Phil & Mrs Phil: Some people just can’t handle the truth sarabell.
Dona: I love that movie Rush. What is the connection?
Rush: Understood, Mike.
Phil & Mrs Phil: I know I know!!
Mike n Rach in DC: SB…sometimes they die of old age on our very doorstep.
Rush: We have some of the same uninvited guests appearing in our new home, as well…
angel & phox: Sarabell, i would ask your hand if my boyfriend was not jealous & licensed.
angel & phox: It
Mike n Rach in DC: Rachel. Broom… Mouse flees.
angel & phox: (sings) It’s a long way, to Tucumcari…
Phil & Mrs Phil: Did you move Rush?
Rush: Butler not too pleased wuth Chan.
sarabell2: I own guns but do not care if you do not want one, but her lack of logic got me
Rush: Not yet, Phil…we move in mid-June…after school is done.
Mike n Rach in DC: A d logic is useful when operating firearms…
Phil & Mrs Phil: Illonois right?
Louise: To the stables!
Phil & Mrs Phil: Illinois…or however you spell it.
angel & phox: Thank you both, H and SB. I value good humor & bonhomie above all, liberty next, & i despise self-serving inconsistency.
Mike n Rach in DC: Time to ‘op in me loose box.
angel & phox: M n R, i’m going to REPORT that remark!!
Rush: Actually Illinois is just across the river from us.
angel & phox: I BEG YOUR PARDON!
angel & phox: “Head Lad”—this is just getting WORSE!
Rush: “What the DEUCE!!!”
hounder: laughter is good medicine
Louise: Tonight our conversation is like a swirling tornado!
Mike n Rach in DC: That sounds like a Rodgers and Hammerstein song, Rush
angel & phox: Ummmmmm…
Rush: Yes and yes!
Phil & Mrs Phil: Yes Louise, as usual I’m paying more attention to what we’re writing than the movie.
angel & phox: Gotta love The DEUCE! Hate The Drake.
angel & phox: AVALANCHE!!
hounder: normal when there are so many of us louise
Rush: Here comes Lake.
Louise: Sounds like gunshots
Phil & Mrs Phil: IT’S A HORSE NOT A COW!
Rush: An “old friend” of ours.
Rush: We saw him in “Behind That Curtain.”
Louise: Crazy guy in several movies?
Rush: We will see him in “Charlie Chan at the Race Track.”
angel & phox: “He can do anything with her”—Does this film have a SUBTEXT we should have a script for?
Mike n Rach in DC: But it’s an ‘orse
Rush: As the Ship’s Steward.
Fredsmom: tomfoolery akin to “shenanagans”?
Rush: Bunny’s turn to spak up!
Phil & Mrs Phil: Yeah but that guy’s head is still mostly attached.
Rush: Mostly, yes!
Mike n Rach in DC: There is vast potential there Angel.
Louise: I talk like that all the time
Rush: Don’t light a cigarette next to Bunny!
Phil & Mrs Phil: I’m sure we don’t want to get into all the possible scenarios M&R
angel & phox: M n R: That’s what we prudes are afraid of.
Mike n Rach in DC: Woosh
Rush: Tonight we have a “Number One Horse Boy.”
Rush: Next week, we have a “Number One Son.”
Fredsmom: I just realized no Chan son in this movie…..
Mike n Rach in DC: I mean..like “Wicked” a la Chan
Phil & Mrs Phil: Nice, isn’t it.
Rush: Mike: 🙂
angel & phox: I don’t wonder that #1 Horse Boy did not continue as ensemble cast member.
angel & phox: ‘orse is rahthah quiet, even for a noble animal.
Phil & Mrs Phil: I wonder if they realize the horse is listening to everything they say.
Mike n Rach in DC: How about the story for all of the characters that DIDNT make the grade?
Fredsmom: Haha Phil n Mrs!
Rush: Lake is nervous…
Phil & Mrs Phil: Mrs Phil wants to know “where’s the knife?”
angel & phox: Wonder if she chops her own firewood.
angel & phox: THIRD ref to “noble animal”!
Rush: The knife was probably returned to its original location.
Mike n Rach in DC: Clue!
Louise: Noble animla 5
angel & phox: FOUR! —“Cat of hell”. ANOTHER DUPLICATE HORSE DEAL??
Rush: “Noble Animal” count!
Louise: noble animal 6
angel & phox: No. I am really the—
Mike n Rach in DC: Horses are noble?
Rush: I would be mostly in agreement with CC in that regard….
Louise: Ya think she has a thing against men???
Rush: Noble: possessing outstanding qualities. I think it fits!
Mike n Rach in DC: The maid, Louise?
angel & phox: But FOUR TIMES, Rush??
Fredsmom: love the shape of the doors in this movie
Mike n Rach in DC: Or CB perhaps the King always was on a horse?
angel & phox: FDR was a noble animal. I think the 4x bit should be reserved for him. Cap at three.
Rush: Would he have thought he’d be in a movie called “Hot Rods to Hell” in about 30 years?
Phil & Mrs Phil: CUE THE CAN!
angel & phox: MORE antlers!
sarabell2: I notice doors too, Fredsmom
Rush: I think we can say it’s official.
angel & phox: Players Club card.
Phil & Mrs Phil: Matt must be living WAAAYY in the past.
Mike n Rach in DC: stealth can perhaps
Rush: “Mr. Chang…”
Rush: “Money talks.”
Mike n Rach in DC: Doesn’t show up on radar either.
angel & phox: “Conclusions jump at me”
angel & phox: Let’s try anyway. Let me get my boyfriend’s piece.
Rush: Or…he could’ve held the gun upside-down to shoot himself!
angel & phox: Do you polish your shoes with that mouth, Constable?
angel & phox: Up to now.
Phil & Mrs Phil: Hey Charlie, you’re a little late not letting the murderer know.
angel & phox: TYSM!
Rush: “Thank you so much.”
angel & phox: No salt on his tails.
sarabell2: How bad was the countryside that this guy is the Constable?
angel & phox: I gotta hire her.
Mike n Rach in DC: I wonder what the search process is like to hire a constable.
Fredsmom: ha to Angel n Phox!
Rush: Yes, SB. We can see Thacker’s lack of experience.
angel & phox: Sarabell, they’d had a crime wave so bad they got Ethel Merman to sing its theme. The Constable was persuaded to leave Miss Merman’s employ. By Miss Merman.
Rush: Probably not too much happens in the countryside beyond an occasional poacher.
angel & phox: RAD plaid!
angel & phox: Poached or fried, them rabbits is delish!
Mike n Rach in DC: It ain’t over until Ethel sings.
Rush: Hush money.
angel & phox: I want some hush money.
Louise: HUSH money? He was too noisy for that.
Rush: Exactly, Mike!
Rush: In the case of the Flyers, it didn’t START until she would sing!
Phil & Mrs Phil: DanVenture you haven’t said anything all night.
angel & phox: You could burn a manor down tossing those things.
Rush: Or…was that someone else!
Dona: Angel my grandmother used to make rabbit. I wouldn’t touch it. No way I was eating a bunny.
Rush: Dona…I would agree.
angel & phox: What the deuce—?
Rush: We have a pet bunny.
angel & phox: TYSM!
angel & phox: THEY have a pet Bunny!
Rush: She gave us a big health scare a week ago.
Rush: Better now.
sarabell2: Did it have any more seizures?
Rush: Yes, Angel!
Rush: They do.
angel & phox: Al Cowlings?
Louise: She is being eaten by that fur
Mike n Rach in DC: I have a great recip for Hasenpfepper…if both my e era becomes annoying.
Rush: No more seizures.
angel & phox: Louise, it DOES seem to grow on her. A fuzzy goiter.
Phil & Mrs Phil: That’s the BIGGEST caterpillar I’ve ever seen.
angel & phox: Remember Fuzzy Zoeller?
Mike n Rach in DC: Oh yes
Rush: “Do you really think I should go?”
Phil & Mrs Phil: Being high strung seems to run in that family.
hounder: that’s a monster fur collar
Louise: P&MP: yep
Fredsmom: Poor bunny…sorry to hear it was sick
angel & phox: TWO Drama Queens where NONE are needed!!
Rush: TYSM, FM.
angel & phox: How much would you like? 500? A thousand?
Phil & Mrs Phil: Get lost Neal
Rush: She’s doing very well now. back to her old self!
Rush: Hopefully that will continue!
angel & phox: You could roast a radio in that fireplace.
Rush: “Frequent state of mind for detective.”
Mike n Rach in DC: Fingers crossed Rush.
Rush: TYSM, Mike!
angel & phox: He’s wearing that collare turned-up just to show off that his bowtie isn’t a clip-on.
Rush: Definitely a member of the family!
Dona: More fur
angel & phox: (Chan sings) “Tutti-fruti! Oh, rootie…”
Rush: She talks a lot of sense.
Louise: Yes, we have started the season of the furs
sarabell2: A & P you made me cry laughing with that one
Mike n Rach in DC: You can make Hasenpfeffer with chicken instead of rabbit. No one will know. (Except for bunny). 🙂
Rush: True, louise.
angel & phox: I would have piled empty cans at the door.
Rush: Right between CC’s thumb and forefinger!
Mike n Rach in DC: White phlox phur?
Rush: Looked like a top-hatted attacker!
angel & phox: EXCUUUUUUUUUUUUUSE please!!
Rush: VERY cureous missile, indeed!
angel & phox: An early Tetragene-delivery system.
Rush: The “Buck Rogers” design!
angel & phox: Maybe ’twas Noble Animal.
Phil & Mrs Phil: How could he have shot at Charlie then have enough time to get into his smoking jacket?
angel & phox: Rush: Buck was showing up everywhere then, huh?
Rush: At least Thacker didn’t ruin the fingerprints.
Louise: I have been reading old Buck Rogers comics!
Mike n Rach in DC: Is there a tactful way to say, “Wow. You have a big missile?”
Rush: Yes, Angel, he was known to “pass” from place to place…
angel & phox: ‘e can’t write a-tall.
angel & phox: Wilma D-ring anywhere around?
angel & phox: Constable got a wit like a steel trap.
Rush: A bit rusty, perhaps…
angel & phox: Wild bird, you make my heart—what’s a rhyme for “bird”—?
Rush: He favors that notebook.
Mike n Rach in DC: Once it snaps shut it won’t reopen…
Phil & Mrs Phil: Not the last time we’ll hear that.
angel & phox: Fox turns head in this part.
angel & phox: I’da gone away in The Rolls-Royce meself.
Mike n Rach in DC: Bird …nerd
Rush: Someone’s listening…
Phil & Mrs Phil: It’s the horse.
angel & phox: Picture the manure.
Rush: There is an intersting scene change coming.
Mike n Rach in DC: Manicure?
angel & phox: And good in the sack.
Rush: The two scenes are connected by the sound of a plane flying over.
angel & phox: Manicure most delicate when noble animal in chair!
angel & phox: NOoooooooo!
Louise: Hamilton? Those tickets were so expensive…
angel & phox: Louise:
angel & phox: “a queer chap”?
Mike n Rach in DC: It was a device to make horses fly silently.
Phil & Mrs Phil: Don’t go there Angel
Rush: Yes, Angel…in the original meaning…
angel & phox: I don’t know we want to hear, here, how far he went with it.
angel & phox: I’m there already.
angel & phox: Drift caught me.
Phil & Mrs Phil: The stupidest explanation I’ve ever heard.
Rush: Intersting faces sitting on the mantel.
angel & phox: Two heavy bookends could simplify matters wonderfully here.
Rush: The one looks a bit Rondoesque.
hounder: are those initials on her sweater?
angel & phox: Ain’t got time to take a fast train.
Rush: Okay, Angel…the FOX CHASE!
angel & phox: I watch alone!
Mike n Rach in DC: Go fox, go!
Rush: They never learn…if you have information…give it QUICKLY!!!!
angel & phox: Those could be initials of ALL her beaux.
Rush: 120…coming up!
Rush: Shot in Thousand Oaks area, Dona?
Louise: Is fox hunting now banned?
Rush: I think it is, Louise.
Dona: Oh, I know that area
sarabell2: They need to switch to coyote hunting here
Mike n Rach in DC: Mr. Chan I have the most vital information to communicate. Unfortunately I must allow the villain enough time to assassinate me…
Rush: Didn’t it look like it could be that area?
hounder: lol@m n r
angel & phox: Somebody call the fox! Tell him we turned around!
Rush: Exactly, Mike!
Rush: Bed pan.
angel & phox: Good job Gloomy Gwendolyn wasn’t Attending this time.
Phil & Mrs Phil: Where did the studio get all the actors with British accents I wonder.
Dona: Yes, now that you say it, it defenitly does.
Mike n Rach in DC: Is that the kind of camera technique used here Rush?
Rush: Sadly, probably an actual dead horse was used here.
Phil & Mrs Phil: It could have been hypnotized.
Dona: We used to ride motorcyles out there.
angel & phox: Phil, Mrs. Phil, let’s ask Rush: was Hwood not rife with expatriate Brit actors in the ’30s?
Rush: Yes, Dona?
angel & phox: Hamilton had a Burr under his saddle.
Mike n Rach in DC: This scene and Race Track are the low points.
Rush: Tricky proposition, Mike!
angel & phox: UH-OH.
Louise: All you guys…
Rush: Each suspect glances at the next one!
Louise: in this room are guilty
angel & phox: Softly softly catchee Aristocratic monkey!
