mda19083: Had so much fun last week

mda19083: It is cold here in the Philadelphia area

Matt1: Great bunch of people here, MDA

Rush: I have been hearing of the cold!

Rush: The area where we will be moving is in the frigid zone!

mda19083: I hear it is warm in Egypt

Matt1: Looks like we’re skipping this cold front….80 here in FL today

mda19083: Sorry to hear

Rush: Yes! We warm up a bit tonight with Chan in Egypt!

Matt1: And?…..I’m coming down with a cold…..go figure

Rush: Colds happen….I have not had one for a while.

mda19083: How long has the Monday Chan chat been around

Matt1: I haven’t had one in about a year

Rush: Just don’t sneeze within sight of anyone…they will think you have the ‘vid!

Matt1: I was just saying that!

Rush: This is our 21st year, MDA.

Matt1: Popping cold med, so hoping I beat it early

Rush: Good idea!

Matt1: 21 years….amazing run

Rush: Stated in early 2000.

Rush: (started)

mda19083: Everyone seems to enjoy it

Matt1: I’ve been here 15+?

Rush: Well, we have had a lot of fun…and a little sorrow…together over the years!

Rush: Yes, Matt!

mda19083: It appears that you can cover the entire Chan Canon during the year

Rush: Tonight’s radio drama is “The Case of the Marching Ants”!

Rush: Not a good thing to have at the next picnic.

Rush: Yes, we do, MDA!

Rush: Plus some “other” films, etc.

Matt1: Rush times it perfectly for the year

mda19083: Is the Chan annual picnic virtual this year

Rush: Each year we cycle through the entire Charlie Chan series…and more.

Matt1: Hello SB & Hounder!

Rush: Sarabell and Hounder!


hounder: hi everyone. if i should disappear it’s probably the weather. tornado watches and severe t storm warnings tonight.

mda19083: Greetings

Matt1: Ready!

Rush: GO!!!

Matt1: Started right away

Rush: The Incomperable Charlie Chan.

Rush: Yes, matt!

Rush: Organ music this time!

Rush: Love it!

Rush: So, this is probably 1945.

Rush: From this message we can tell.

sarabell2: I think it must have been so much fun to do a live radio program, back then. Terrifying, but fun.

Matt1: Buy war bonds

Rush: Agreed, SB!

Rush: And, YES, Matt!

mda19083: 10/01/1945

Rush: You found the date, MDA?

sarabell2: thank you mda

mda19083: on the download file

Rush: Then, this aired just AFTER the Japanese surrender!

hounder: it would have been hard no to be distracted by the folley guys

Matt1: <frogs>

Rush: “Student of occult matters.”

Rush: “House of death!”

Rush: Lee is blunt here!

Matt1: And, don’t call me Shirley!

Rush: πŸ™‚

hounder: you’l find out what we believe when we’ve made up our minds

Rush: Nice voicing of Chan, IMHO.

Rush: Yes, Hounder!

Rush: .22 caliber gun.

Rush: “Apply further bit of knowledge to nostrils.”

sarabell2: i listened to one driving today, the voice actor was awful. This one is pretty good, I agree.

Rush: There are also AUSTRALIAN versions that we will ne hearing at some point!

sarabell2: Oh that is funny.

Rush: They attempt to use American accents!

sarabell2: So do we!

Rush: πŸ™‚

Rush: Indeed!

Rush: I sense a “bump-off” coming before morning!

Rush: Another accuser!

Rush: AH! They accuse each other!

mda19083: Everybody has Charlie’s phone number

Rush: Seems so!

Rush: maybe the paper published it!

sarabell2: Its written above the pay phone

Rush: πŸ™‚

Rush: Brighton, Brighton, and Corpse.

Rush: Killer!

hounder: let’s add breaking and entering to our poice detective

Matt1: Yikes!

mda19083: sounds like a law firm

Rush: Yes, but the killer exited before they could break and enter!

Rush: And shot at them!

Rush: I think that the date of this one has to be earlier than October of 1945.

Rush: I think that the people putting it online made a mistake, there.

Rush: A small gap there.

mda19083: perhaps 01/10/1945

Rush: Good bye…thank you…”

hounder: good start to case

Rush: That would be much more likely, MDA.

Rush: Ed Begley!

sarabell2: I do like these short programs

Rush: Me too!

sarabell2: I do not understand how Ed Begley had such a handsome son

Rush: I have a signed photo of Ed Begley as Chan.

Rush: You can see it at our Gallery.

Matt1: <clap-clap>

Rush: Yes, matt…TYSM!

sarabell2: Really I was just going to ask is it on your site

Rush: 14 minutes until CC in Egypt.

Rush: Tonight we will see the third of what amounts to a Chan TRILOGY!

Louise: Yes Rush?

Nothere: We just need to determine how many t’s we get.

Rush: From London, CC goes to Paris to help a London bank concerning the fake bonds.

Louise: I need to get some tea but that is not what you are talking about…

Nothere: T to tea conversation conversion.

mda19083: he sure does get around

Rush: Then, tonight, CC comes representing a French archeological organization regarding unscrupulous artifat selling!

Rush: And, next week, we travel to Shanghai with Chan!

Louise: We are getting linguistically sophisticated tonight

Nothere: If you man me I have a very big lexicon.

Rush: I like to think he’s on the homeward leg of his journey at that point!

Rush: 2 minutes!

Rush: Ready?

Louise: As we speak my hubby is on the phone talking about unscrupulous artifact selling!!!

Rush: 90 seconds…


Rush: 75 seconds…

hounder: hi phil and mrs

Matt1: Hello m/m Phil!

Dona: Hi M/M Phil

PaulM: evening

Phil & Mrs Phil: Aloha to all our Chan friends!

Rush: Seems that they used it to replace a ‘lost” title card and opening music sequence.

Rush: I have always thought that it looked a little “off.”

Nothere: Hey Phil type people.

Rush: The same with the closing…very abrupt!

Louise: Pry it, pry it!

Rush: hello, Phil and Mrs. phil!

Rush: Don’t ever breathhe tomb air!!!

Louise: Sorry, this household always reacts loudly to archaeology movies

Rush: See?

Matt1: <tin can>

Nothere: Ah the ancient tomb death curse. Never be the first in.

Louise: Looks like the reconstruction of Tut’s tomb in Las Vegas

Matt1: Great scene

Rush: Chan arrives vis biplane.

Rush: From Italy, perhaps?

Louise: Steampunk Charlie

Nothere: Ah Eat at Joes in hieroglyphics.

Nothere: What I spelled that right?

Rush: Yes, LOUISE!

Rush: Dragoman.

Nothere: Behold the shoe of Snowshoes.

Rush: dragoman – A near eastern interpreter, agent, or guide for travelers. Dragoman: “I best dragoman in Luxor!”

Matt1: Snowshoes!

Rush: Enter Snowshoes…

mda19083: there goes the hat

Rush: Yes!

sarabell2: Chan did not lose it on a biplane but lost it on the ground?

Rush: No…came loose as he toppled from that donkey!

hounder: id there no place where you ain’t

Rush: Nice line!

Phil & Mrs Phil: The best line in the movie.

Phil & Mrs Phil: IMHO

Nothere: He was worried about losing it on the plane. Sort of why 90% of accients happen at home.

Rush: Perhaps an “in-joke” there?

Louise: So that fortune teller in Mississippi was correct

Rush: Seems so…

Rush: Stepin Fetchit…Lincoln Perry, was the first black actor to become a millionaire.

Rush: And, in the ’30s, a MILLION was SOMETHING!

Louise: Was he accepted in Hollywood society, Rush?

Dona: i bet so

Rush: Nice “flivver.”

Rush: Not sure about that, Louise.

Louise: Barry, if I remember, is wacky

Nothere: Now those are doorways.

Louise: Another ghoul butler

Rush: I see that Perry was good friends with Will Rogers…

Godwinshelley3 has joined this room

Louise: Archaeology does not pay

Dona: Hi GS

Louise: Hi GS

Godwinshelley3: Hello from weather warning Indiana

Phil & Mrs Phil: Hi GS

PaulM: hi gs

Nothere: Hey GS

Rush: Hello, GS!

Godwinshelley3: No one on road except emergency vehicle

Rush: Yes, Louise.

Nothere: I always say this an shall again Rita Heyworth.

sarabell2: That is because you all are nice.

mda19083: you are a nice group of people

Rush: I mentioned earlier to MDA about the ups and downs we have experienced together over the years.

Louise: Just wait, sarabeth, we turn viscious at the full moon…

hounder: dropping in with friends is always a comfort louise

Phil & Mrs Phil: Me too Dona

Louise: Just joking. I have been coming here for 10 years through all sorts of crises

hounder: not xray macine as don’t have to develop plates

Rush: And it is great to see you, Dona, and everyone else each week!

sarabell2: I did not recognize Rita Hayworth, but I did wonder why that man was hanging around that anemic blonde when that bodacious native girl was there.

Rush: Yes, Hounder!

Rush: That would be, I believe, a floroscope?

Louise: open it!

Rush: Chan could probably also smell the fresh varnish!

hounder: yes rush. they used to use flouroscopes ti size shoes

Rush: YES!

Louise: I remember the shoe size thing

Rush: It wasn’t a great idea!

Nothere: I think he mummy’s insurance might have run out.

Rush: Arabic with a Southern U.S. accent there!

Rush: “Smile”

Rush: THIN neck!

hounder: somehow i doubt 3 men could have shifted that heavy wood sarcauphagus

Rush: Yes, Hounder!

Louise: a bullet

Rush: Especially if they wanted to preserve an ancient artifact!

Louise: gotta call the FBI back

Nothere: It’s Ameti Bowler hat, zoot suit, bullet. Totally ancient Egyptain.

Rush: Risked damage.

Phil & Mrs Phil: Cue the can!

Rush: NT: πŸ™‚

Louise: confound it the lights again

Rush: Skhmet!

Nothere: Graon!

Nothere: Groan even

Rush: Nice sets!

Louise: Lots of casual drug use

Nothere: You gotta wonder about those doorways though.

Rush: Dr. Arnold never knew he’d become a mummy someday!

Rush: One of the “New Adventures of Charlie Chan” episodes has a similar situation of a mummified victim!

Nothere: So does this guy know Reinfield?

Rush: Cousin, perhaps!

Louise: Yes, Renfield’s other brother

Rush: πŸ™‚

Louise: So many odd brothers in these movies

Rush: Pathetic person.

Phil & Mrs Phil: I could swear he shows up in a movie called “When Worlds Collide” in a brief scene.

Dona: I have never understood the door situation in this movie

Dona: why even have a door with holes in ti

Rush: This actor?

Dona: it

Phil & Mrs Phil: Yeah, the brother.

Rush: CC gathers clues.

Rush: HM!

Rush: I can check…

Louise: When Worlds Collide: good movie

sarabell2: Dona, they always shut those doors to have a private conversation

Dona: lol

Phil & Mrs Phil: The actor who plays Dr. Racine in this movie also played a Dr. in “The Invisible Man.”

Rush: James Eagles. His last movie was in 1950. Not in “When Worlds Collide.” he was in a Flsah Gordon series.

Phil & Mrs Phil: TYSM Rush

Rush: It’s always ibnteresting to check up on Chan actiors!

Rush: I love seeing them in other movies!

mda19083β†’PaulM: imdb says he was in CC at the Racetrack

Phil & Mrs Phil: But Frank Conway showed up in “The Day the Earth Stood Still.”

Rush: Checking…

Nothere: But was he a Dr. at the racetrack?

Rush: Yes, he was…

hounder: so o we ever learn where ameti’s mummy is?

Rush: James Eagles…

Rush: Charlie Chan in Egypt: Barry Arnold
Charlie Chan at the Race Track: Chick Patton

mda19083: uncredited role

Rush: yes, MDA.

Nothere: With his dady?

Nothere: Daddy even

mda19083: never ignore a warning

Louise: Charlie has a thing about pajamas

mda19083: TYSM

Rush: BANG! BANG!!!

Rush: Size 52.

Rush: XXXL?

Phil & Mrs Phil: Which brings to mind..where is Charlie’s luggage?

Rush: Good question!

mda19083: he travels light

sarabell2: Still on the donkey

Nothere: Sent on ahead by train?

Rush: Maybe a small suitcase was carried abord the plane?

Louise: Dead before letter written: hard to do

Rush: Also, we didn’t really see him with baggage upon arrival in paris!

Rush: Yes, Louise!

Rush: An argument about the Ahmeti heirglyphics!
