Matt1: Hello Mike!
hounder: hi mike
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
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: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=charlie+chan+hanke&i=stripbooks&ref=nb_sb_noss
Rush: $20 here: https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?sts=t&cm_sp=SearchF-_-home-_-Results&an=ken+hanke&tn=charlie+chan+at+the+movies&kn=&isbn=
Mike in DC: Looks like they’re around $25 on Amazon…
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!
Mike in DC: Charlie would say “Please spend hard-earned dollars on family, not on book about humble self.” 🙂
Rush: two minutes….
Rush: Everyone ready ?
mda19083: great Mike
Rush: “The Man Who Moved Mountains”
Mike in DC: Are we moving mountiains?
Rush: We will at least TRY, Mike!
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*
Mike in DC: *sighs*
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
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!
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! 🙂

Nothere: Lee is dating his sister? Well with 13 Chan kids it was bound to happen.
sarabell2: Very funny Nothere.
Rush: “Only one, pop.”
Phil & Mrs Phil: I think this chan film has one of the most convoluted plots of any.
Fredsmom: Lee “I tried to shake her but I couldnt”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Shake it Lee, shake it, baby
Rush: Translation, please?
Mike n Rachel in DC: Luànlún

Mike n Rachel in DC: Refer to dating sister. Not need graphic translation, Rush. Chan Family remain G-rated, with occasional Chinese characters. 😉

Rush: Chan’s kindness to this flower girl will prove beneficial!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Chan Family urge brother Lee not to date sister
Rush: Back seat driver….

Phil & Mrs Phil: Wasn’t this guy the German police chief in CC at the Olympics?

Nothere: Lee action hero.
Rush: GREAT DIVE, LEE!!!
Phil & Mrs Phil: Be careful to fully shut the door behind you.
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: 🙂
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.

Fredsmom: Like this sketch
Rush: I would guess that Keye Luke actually drew it.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Lee. Think about this. Your father has 13 kids. You know NOTHING about girls that he hasn’t figured out. Just sayin’
Nothere: I’m the kid I know more than any adult.
mda19083: secret writing
Rush: Yes! Invisible ink!
Nothere: Shush Mda it’s a secret.

Rush: Chan has already made some important discoveries…as to true identities.
