hounder: ready here

Matt1: Very nice Hounder!

Rush: “The Landini Murder Case: Too Many Suspects…”

Rush: That’s GREAT, Hounder!

MikeB: My first fascination with this genre started with a movie called, the Bitter Tea of General Yen. My father had a also few movies with James Lee Wong. And from there I discovered Charlie Chan.

Rush: Wonderful!

Matt1: That’s great, Mike

Rush: Nice route of discovery, mike!

MikeB: Have been a fan of Movie and TV detectives for a while now. Columbo is also classis of course

Rush: Thank you for sharing that!

Rush: Yes.

MikeB: classic

Rush: Indeed!

Matt1: Yep!

Rush: Tonight we will be watching, via our own DVDs, or the link above, “Charlie Chan at the Circus.”

hounder: btw sympathies on the painting you’ve done and have yet to do. it took 3 coats of Kilz to cover some ugly peach paint in mom’s room today.

Matt1: FUN film!

Rush: 25…

Rush: 15…

Rush: 10…

Rush: 5…

Rush: GO!!!

Rush: Intro music….

Rush: Announcer….

Rush: During this lengthy music, commercials would be played.

Rush: So, the audience didn’t hear all that we are hearing.

Rush: There will be a recap of the story thus far…

Rush: This story is taken from “Keeper of the Keys” by Earl Derr Biggers.

Rush: The murder has already happened.

Rush: (The first 10 episodes of this drama series are missing.

Rush: But we have the rest through the conclusion.

mda19083: hopefully there were no essential clues in the first 10 episodes

Rush: I don’t think so.

mda19083: CC doesn’t need clues

Rush: The first episodes forobaly served to introduce characters, etc.

Rush: MDA: 🙂

Rush: If anyone here is not yet receiving our weekly email “newsletter,” please feel free to send a message to:

Rush: Sorry…


sarabell2: Really appreciate you, Rush, amazed you have done all this.

Rush: Fake “Chinese”

Rush: Not actual Chinese words spoken.

Rush: Improv!

hounder: rush is the best!

Rush: Oh, my swelling head….

mda19083: thanks Rush

mda19083: TYSM

Rush: Very welcome!

Rush: Ah Sing.

Rush: All characters come from the Biggers story.

Rush: And, this mystery pretty closely follows biggers’ storyline.

sarabell2: Have you read the books?

Rush: Yes.

sarabell2: I figured you had. I will have to find them if I can.

Rush: They are a good foundation for watching the movies.

Rush: You can find them all over the Internet.

mda19083: radio landini follows CC Carries On book?

sarabell2: OK thanks. I will probably picture Warner Oland in the books.

Rush: We also have slightly abridged online copies here at this site at our “Charlie Chan Links” section.

Rush: Yes, sarabell!

sarabell2: OK, thank you so much.

Rush: I believe that Roland Winters used the books to help him form his “take” on the charater.

hounder: so sb, you favor oland’s vision of chan?

sarabell2: I do. He has a sweetness about him. But I love them all. Except Ross Martin. But that goes without saying. Love him but that was terrible.

Rush: And back in 1953.

Rush: The Number One Chan daughter in this one we see giving birth to the Chans’ first Grandchild in “Charlie Chan in Honolulu.”

Rush: Yes, louise!

Rush: In real life the Brasnos were brother and sister.


sarabell2: One played his daughter, I commented on her beauty on Youtube and her son wrote me I will try to find her name. She played his daugther in several movies then quit to have a family and died not too long ago

Rush: Florence Ung: Number One Chan Daughter

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Who are you referring to sarabell?

sarabell2: Oh I knew I would get in trouble let me find her.

Matt1: Future CC!

Rush: Shia Jung: Su Toy

Rush: Yes!

DanVenture: I wonder if there was a message along with Chan’s signature in that book?

DanVenture: Seems our family is growing just like Charlie’s!

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Hi MikeB and Zoe too!

Rush: I am guessing that the circus’ “take” was $26.80 and NOT $2, 680!

Louise: Goin’ bad in the big tent: my new motto

mda19083: CC was gifted his tickets

Rush: The key was picked up.

Rush: Yes, MDA.

Rush: It would not hurt to have CC and Family visit your circus!

mda19083: the take would have been higher

Nothere: Sorry Rush but lik I said. You comp Charlie’s whole family it’s 2680

PaulM has left this room

Nothere: 2k even

Rush: YES, NT!!!

MikeB: look for the shoes of the one that picked up the keys and you have your suspect

mda19083: good publicity though

sarabell2: You are a good detective MikeB

Nothere: Of course only the shoes would be heel enough for this crime.

mda19083: or he has seen the movie before

Phil & Mrs. Phil: I recall seeing two different shoes in that scene, not three.

MikeB: no, not seen before.

Rush: My ancient joke…..

Louise: Go for it, Marie!

Rush: In our Chat Room, of course!

Rush: ðŸ™‚

sarabell2: Lee looked very elegant in 40s clothes

Rush: John Aasen: Tower the Circus Giant

Rush: He was an actual circus giant.

MikeB: “more than one to remove skin from cat”

MikeB: *way

mda19083: body count 1

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Cue the can!

Matt1: <tin can>

Rush: “[This] film was shot “on location at the Al G. Barnes winter quarters,” and a Motion Picture Herald pre-release article states that “the Barnes Circus [was] used as a background for production settings.” In a mid-1980s interview, Keye Luke mentioned that the winter home of the circus used in the film was in the eastern Los Angeles community of El Monte.”

Nothere: Quick everyone lunge at the camera for no reason.

Rush: Blame it on Caesar….!

Phil & Mrs. Phil: TYSM Matt

Rush: Yes….TYSM, Matt….

sarabell2: So interesting Rush

Nothere: That Caesar always up to some monkey business.

Rush: ðŸ™‚

mda19083: no one has dusted recently

Rush: Lee “plays” the detective there!

Nothere: Do you have a licence for that finger gun?

Rush: ðŸ™‚

mda19083: run lee

mda19083: good going lee

Rush: Where are the Royal Bengal Tigers?

Nothere: India?

Rush: Su Toy is in their cage…

Rush: Caesar wants to play….

Nothere: So this guy decides to wrestle a gorillia….Dude is your name Tarzan?

Phil & Mrs. Phil: I doubt three men could manhandle a go-rilla.

Rush: That was pretty good on his part!

Rush: Yes. he would need to be pretty strong to do that!

Rush: Lt. macy.

Rush: Chan will watch all this with fatherly amusement.


Nothere: Is there anyone not sneaking around this circus?

Matt1: Too funny

Rush: Chan REALLY likes THIS part!

mda19083: fun

Rush: Proud of Lee!

mda19083: good one pop

Rush: Yes!

Rush: Lee remembers Su!

PaulM has joined this room

Nothere: I know it’s the thirties Lee, but putting your girlfriend in a cage is a bit much.

Rush: I would love to have su toy’s lines there translated!

sarabell2: Su toy not to be toyed with

mda19083: and she throws away the key

Nothere: Wb Paul

PaulM: computer a bit slow tonight

hounder: kinda nice that the kids are wearing kimonos as well

Dona: i love this part with the whole family

Rush: understood, Paul.

Rush: Nice family scene here.

Man who seek trouble never find it far off.

Louise: Judge: Mama!

Rush: Family encourages Pop to take the case.

Rush: “Judge” says YES!

mda19083: yes mrs chan

mda19083: here come the alibis

Rush: No one liked kinney.

mda19083: kinney was a heel

Phil & Mrs. Phil: The go-rilla was an escAPE artist.

Rush: note how chan allows Macy to think this is Macy’s idea!

Rush: Great strategy!

mda19083: why didn’t i think of that

hounder: chrlie’s good at making people think his idea is theirs

Rush: ðŸ™‚

Nothere: Mrs. Chan wasn’t in many films, but we all know who ran that house. Somone check the gorilla cage for a skeleton key.

mda19083: brush off #2

Rush: My guess is that we are at Flagstaff, AZ, and the overnight train travels to Albuquerque, NM.

Nothere: Charlie is good at making people think an idea is theirs. Glad I thought of that:)

Rush: Yes!

Nothere: I bow to Rush’s railroad expertise.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: We were onboard that Amtrak train 3 years ago Rush.

mda19083: johnny on the spot

hounder: someone had to keep the fmily in line.

Rush: Just a lot of thinking and looking at maps!

Phil & Mrs. Phil: The train actually broke down in Alburquerque for 4 hours.

Rush: Seems to work out.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Train travel is SO cool!

Rush: In my case, of course, it’s “thinking.”

Nothere: I think you think good thogughts

Rush: I try…often fail!

Rush: I try to out-do the proverbial clock and, perhaps be right…three times a day.

Rush: The stopped clock, of course.

Nothere: The snake says. What the heck? Why was I shoved in this..oh soft and warm.

Rush: Yes, NT.

mda19083: good shot lee

Rush: great shot, Lee!

Nothere: What you thought all that finger gun earlier was for show?

Louise: Who’s on first?

Rush: Someone needs to clean the mess from chan’s room.

mda19083: nice one louise

Rush: REAL gun this time!

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Someone needs to plug the bullet hole in the wall

Nothere: Louise. Yes.

Rush: Finger model was only a rehearsal!

Nothere: Nice thing about elephant mover …come on you all know the punchline.

Rush: Lee’s “stuck,” in more ways than one!

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Work’s for peanuts.

mda19083: ðŸ™‚

Nothere: And the Phil’s win the banana. Now you just have t get it from Caesaer.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Toast and cigar smoke…D LISH!

Nothere: Don’t forget the soup.

Nothere: See told you Ceaser had the banana.

mda19083: beware the ides of march

Nothere: Ah but who had the safe?

Louise: Fiancee business

Rush: That policy would be worth about a million today.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: By any chance did anyone watch “Sunset Boulevard” on TCM last night?

Nothere: A million? Nope no motive here. Move along.

mda19083: yes – the butler did it

Nothere: Nopwe sorry Phil’s didn’t see it.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: They had a dead chimpanzee in it. Rather odd.

mda19083: max the butler was creepy

Nothere: Time for his close up.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Creepy is one word for it.
