Charlie Chan Family Chat Archive for the year 2017

Welcome to our list of collected Chat Room text records from Charlie Chan Family Monday Evening Chat and Film Viewings for 2017.

The texts are partial records from screen captures collected and contributed by Louise Krasiewicz.  The texts range in length from what would have been about five minutes of running text to the equivalent of about 20 to 30 minutes of dialogue which was probably broken into segments as they were randomly screen captured.

Please use the links provided below to access the Charlie Chan Family Weekly Chat and Film Viewing text records for the year 2017.

During the early stages of filming, things were not right with Warner Oland, who finally left the set never to return. Suffering from a probable nervous breakdown, the actor fairly soon recovered, going on a European tour which would conclude with a visit to his native Sweden. The plan was that the actor would rejoin Keye Luke and begin filming Charlie Chan in Honolulu, as Ringside had been salvaged and retooled into Mr. Moto’s Gamble. Sadly, however, this was not to be as Oland contracted bronchial pneumonia while in the country of his birth, Sweden, passing away on August 6, 1938.”) (Extra: The Landini Murder Case [Part 26] radio program)
