Dave: Got kicked out, briefly
Rush: How was it?
DanVenture: WOW! Have trailers changed since then!
Rush: I thought that you were watching the trailer!
Dave: Appreciate the clips.
Matt1: Awesome……Now I want MORE!
DanVenture: And a rare bit of 30’s humor–BVD: Before Very Dead
Rush: All we can offer beyond the trailer is our illustrated script.
Dave: I really wish someone would locate our famous lost films….
Matt1: Spinning globe was funny
Rush: YES, DV!
Rush: Nice line, huh!
Dave: I liked the bvd line, too
Dave: Though these were not necessarily the finished film, it gives a nice idea of the look of the film.
Rush: I had heard about the existance of that trailer a long time ago.
Rush: Someone said it was in the collection of the Smithsonial film library.
mda19083 has joined this room
mda19083: Hello folks
Matt1: Hello MDA!
Dave: Hello, mda…
Rush: I was hoping to be able to see it then. Finally, it came out as a part of an “Asians in Movies” DVD.
Rush: Hello, MDA!
Rush: It’s great fortune for us that we even have that trailer for “CC Carries On”!
Rush: And, as for “trailers sure have changed,” well, EVERYTHING has chanced since then (1931)!
Matt1: I think I remember seeing that before….I just can’t remember where/when
Dave: Amazing, when you consider that age, and fact that several films were lost in time…
Rush: I agree.
mda19083: someone once said the only constant in life is change
Dave: A few old theaters in Washington, DC played older films, but the quality of the films was sometimes questionable…
DanVenture: And who knows? Maybe there is a surviving copy somewhere in a dusty closet.
mda19083: its a good thing that Charlie Chan remains a constant
Rush: DV…that is always a hope!
mda19083: DV – – I have a dusty closet
mda19083: I will look for it
Rush: And, the quote from MDA was from the Greek philosopher, Heroclitus (yes, i looked it up!).
mda19083: what is it i am looking for?
Dave: I thought the advent of videos and cable channels might help with renewed interest in older films as well
mda19083: I knew it was someone famous
Jack has joined this room
Jack: Hi all
Matt1: Hello Jack!
Dave: I got a bad case of herclitus on my right foot once…

sarabell2: Howdy Dave, Jack. Did anyone go to the Winchester House? I totally understand that woman and Imelda Marcos
mda19083: I think Jack’s “v” key is acting up
Rush: 12 minutes…
Dave: I didn’t go, but my family did, before I was born…
Rush: There was a show on TV called “You Asked For It” when I was a kid, and I believe that they showed the Winchester House once.

Dave: not a ghost, it’s Lucifer!

Dave: Like Charlie’s reaction shots…
Jack: Yes Dave
Nothere: Did someone mention fur?

Godwinshelley2: Silent Phantom?
Dave: Lon Chaney version?
Nothere: Round up every man named Eric in San Fransico.
