mda19083: Rush – I am looking to purchase a CC film book. The Hanke and Niebaur books are in the same price rage – do you have a favorite of the two?


Mike in DC: Greetings all! Very much a cameo appearance (perhaps appearances) this evening, but wanted to at least say hello to everyone!

Rush: Hanke is considered a “classic.”

sarabell2: I looked up the Hanks book, used about $600

Matt1: $600?

Rush: Neibaur book contains some good tidbits on Mantan moreland.


Rush: You can find it a LOT cheaper!

hounder: wow. that’s an expensive book!!

mda19083: Thrift Books – used 25.00

sarabell2: That was what it said the only place I found it. I hope to find it cheaper

hounder: whew. that’s a much better price

Matt1: You could buy all the CC DVD sets for cheaper

Mike in DC

Rush: $20 here:

Mike in DC: Looks like they’re around $25 on Amazon…

Rush: Yes!

mda19083: thanks

Mike in DC: Cha-ching, Rush!

Rush: MUCH more like it!

mda19083: sound effects

Rush: Indeed, Mike!

hounder: guess the other was just fishing to see if someone would bite

Matt1: <tin can>

mda19083: hook line and sinker

Rush: I notice that smoetimes some sellers stick a HUGE price on items, perhaps hoping someone will actually go for it!

Rush: YES, Matt!

Rush: πŸ™‚

Mike in DC: Charlie would say “Please spend hard-earned dollars on family, not on book about humble self.” πŸ™‚

Rush: two minutes….

Rush: Everyone ready ?

mda19083: great Mike

Rush: “The Man Who Moved Mountains”

Mike in DC: Are we moving mountiains?

Matt1: A Man is apparently

Mike in DC: Ooof

Rush: 60 seconds…

Rush: 50 seconds…

Mike in DC: *flexes bicep*

Rush: 40 seconds…

Rush: 30 seconds…

Mike in DC: *ponders mountain*

Rush: 25…

Rush: 20…

Mike in DC: *sighs*

Rush: 15…

Rush: 10…

Rush: 5…

Rush: GO!!!

Rush: The Incomperable Charlie Chan…

Mike in DC: The Wisdom of the East!

Rush: Organ accompaniment…

Rush: I think that Chan is played here by Santos Ortega.

Rush: Chan seems to be based in San Francisco.

mda19083: Honolulu in off season

Rush: Yes!

Matt1: <cuckoo>

Rush: πŸ™‚

sarabell2: A cranky professor. Hang up Charlie

Rush: I was thinking the same!

Mike in DC: Pop!

Mike in DC: This Chan seems a little more connected to the “movie” Chans…

Rush: “Man who jumps to conclusions lands in confusion.”

Rush: The car sounds like a “flivver.”

Rush: Souns like a pretty good actor reading these lines!

Rush: “Will do.”

Mike in DC: “It is written…” sounds like a line from Lawrence of Arabia…

sarabell2: Thanks for telling us where we should be, Rush. I am a couple seconds behind

Rush: No problem, SB!

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Mike in DC: *sidebar* I’ve really missed Charlie Chan the past weeks. *sigh*

Rush: The professor sounds like a huckster!

Mike in DC: Yes, Rush. Sort of like an auctioneer…

Rush: I understand, Mike…

Rush: I wonder what’s beneath the “sand and glue”!!!

sarabell2: There is something peaceful about the movies, like Charlie will fix everything, Mike, at least to me.

Mike in DC: Charlie is like a compass who always points toward “Due Truth”. There’s something about that these days that’s very nostalgic and comforting at the same time.

Rush: Yes, SB…very comforting, I agree.

Mike in DC: Sarabell: YES!!!

Rush: Yes, Mike!

hounder: ..

Rush: I like that term: “Due truth.”

Mike in DC: Could it be that we all find the same “truth” in these things? Isn’t that one characteristic of great art? (cf. Beethoven, etc.)

mda19083: dead men tell no tales

sarabell2: Things were in order, and the right person goes to jail. Plus, everyone is so civilized, mannered and dressed well. I say this as I sit in my Walmart attire

Rush: This commercial points to the late summer of 1945.

sarabell2: A little too late to hear this commrcial

mda19083: CC always gets his man

Rush: YES! πŸ™‚

Rush: AH!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Chan Family urge brother Lee not to date sister

Nothere: Lee action hero.


Fredsmom: scram

Phil & Mrs Phil: Be careful to fully shut the door behind you.

Rush: Yes!

Rush: Russell Hicks.

Nothere: Hey Phil type people just vbecause the building is full of murderous crooks is no reason to be rude.

Phil & Mrs Phil: I wonder if it’s diarheaa.

Phil & Mrs Phil: No, never mind, I don’t wonder that.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Su Lo Gao

hounder: the old i see you in the mirror trick

Nothere: It’s 1935 there is no such thing. Just ask Montazuma.

Rush: Russell Hicks will be in two more Chan films.

Phil & Mrs Phil: Psuedo Gao

Rush: “Dark Alibi” and “The Shanghai Chest.”

Rush: Phil: πŸ™‚

Mike n Rachel in DC: Gao: high

Rush: I am not certain, but the name of that shop might mean, I think, “Fat Su Lo.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Or “high Su Lo” Can we get some of the stuff she’s on? I mean, it’s 4:20 somewhere, right?

Rush: The clock says so twice each day.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Right, Rush. And in DC, it’s all legal. Would you like some “edibles?”

Phil & Mrs Phil: Yeah well I’ve tried drinking at 4:20am and believe me, it’s counterproductive.

mda19083: opium ring

Rush: No thank you…happy as I am!

Louise: M&R: our new dealers!
