Rush: Credits…17:16

Louise: the director: Humberstone!17:16

PaulM: got it started just in time17:16

Rush: Yes!17:16

LibraryJim: should have done an “On your mark….get set….”17:16

LibraryJim: More circus music?17:17

Rush: And, with Humberstone, comes “new” technology!17:17

Matt1: Go Chas!17:17

Rush: CC trots in place.17:17

Godwinshelley2: Paul – I’m booked at June Monster Bash – but just noticed the October Monster Bash is at a different hotel!! What’s up with that?17:17

Rush: Yearly physical!17:17

Louise: He looks pretty fit here17:17

LibraryJim: ancient stress test17:17

Rush: Note the Chan family photo on his wall?

Rush: Waikiki Spinner.17:17

Frosty: Hi Paul. Phil, I used to be a regular before I had to work Monday nights17:18

Rush: Yes!17:18

Phil: Well nice to meet you.17:18

Rush: How long has it been Frosty?17:18

Rush: A few years at least!17:18

LibraryJim: Oh, just piece of string, with hook on one end and optimist on other.17:18

Godwinshelley2: Son number 5?17:18

Mike in DC: Jr. Chan!17:18

Rush: CC refers to him, as Number Two Son.”17:19

Rush: Charlie Chan, Jr.17:19

Mike in DC: Hm. Quite a gap between #1 and 217:19

Rush: We can forgive Mr. Chan this “error”!17:19

Frosty: Couple of years I think. But have kept up with Facebook posts17:19

Mike in DC: I’m sure it’s hard to keep track of them all, Rush17:19

Godwinshelley2: Yes just said Number two17:19

LibraryJim: there were more in between at the circus17:19

Rush: Plane approaches.17:19

Louise: “airplane sound”17:19

Rush: “The Hopkins ship.”17:19

Godwinshelley2: Frosty – have the facebook posts been helpful?17:19

Rush: CC refers to “Cyber warfare!”17:20

Louise: I missed that Rush17:20

LibraryJim: and drones17:20

Godwinshelley2: From AM (static) to FM perhaps?17:20

Frosty: Very much. Have felt like I was still a part of everything17:21

Godwinshelley2: Now if they would just use Hedy Lamar’s channel jumping17:21

Phil: Is that a Beech?17:21

Godwinshelley2: Nice to hear that Frosty17:21

Rush: Actually, Louise, CC was referring to machines fighting wars rather than people.17:21

Louise: cool17:22

Rush: I took it and ran with it!17:22

Rush: :)17:22

Godwinshelley2: Just saw Mary Gordon (almost a CC film regular) on a Jimmy Cagney film last night17:22

LibraryJim: this is an early drone test. 17:22

Rush: Sort of…yes!17:22

Mike in DC: cruise missle17:22

Godwinshelley2: So much for base security17:23

Rush: Slight smile there shows complicity.17:23

Rush: The ship shown: U.S.S. Preble (DD-345)17:23

Louise: So folks, I am thinking of creating a series of videos explaining (and defending) the Chan movies. For example, I would address CC’s use of advanced technology, his patriotic work for the US gov, his fame across the world, etc. But especially his kindness to downtrodden or troubled people.17:24

Mike in DC: Chan still wears a tie.17:24

Rush: Yes.17:24

Mike in DC: Sounds good, Louise!17:24

Godwinshelley2: And his “family” approach17:24

Rush: “Fish in sea like flea on dog…always present, but difficult to catch.”17:24

Matt1: Awesome project, Louise!17:24

Rush: That’s the plane!17:24

Louise: Yes, GS, especially that. 17:24

LibraryJim: not to mention the use of real Chinese in the supporting role as equals to other supporting roles17:25

Godwinshelley2: yes17:25

Louise: I am just tired of hearing the “racist” accusations against these stories.17:25

Mike in DC: Spacious plane!17:25

Rush: TYSM, Louise!17:25

Godwinshelley2: Would you address the assistant in Black Camel being replaced by family?17:25

Rush: Sounds like a VERY worthy project, indeed!17:25

LibraryJim: Yashimo? He was not missed.17:26

Louise: Well, GS, I think the interesting thing is that all the assistants and the family/assistants were treated the same.17:26

Godwinshelley2: Still the translation from books to film – makes an interesting change17:26

Rush: You will be able to use some Keye Luke quotes defending Oland’s (and others’) portrayals of Chan.17:26

Louise: Yes Rush, and this website will be a goldmine for such quotes. TYSM.17:26

Mike in DC: OK. So the man we want ISN’T Edwards…17:27

Rush: I love Chan’s black shirt with white hat.17:27

Rush: Change of attire for Chan in this scene.17:27

Mike in DC: Hey Angel, this film is Fox’s big moment!17:27

Godwinshelley2: I’m going to have to watch this shipboard section again in slow motion to try to see John Carradine in the background I hope17:40

Rush: :)17:51

PaulM: or when a Chan kid says “Pop”17:51

Godwinshelley2: Also when anyone wears PLAID or outlandish pjs17:51

LibraryJim: we’d get alcohol poisoning, Paul17:51

Matt1: Wow, really?18:08

Rush: These shots were filmed at the L.A. Memorial Colosseum…home of the 1932 Olympics.18:08

Mike in DC: I wonder how hard it was to find an English lip reader in Berline?18:08

Mike in DC: *Berlin18:08

Rush: 200-inch telescope – At the time of Charlie Chan at the Olympics, the proposed 200-inch telescope that was to sit atop Mount Palomar in San Diego County in California was still in the early preparatory stages. Daunting work to precisely grind the 200-inch mirror for the telescope began in the mid-1930s, and the working telescope itself was not completed until 1949. Evidently, the prospect of peering deeply into the universe by means of this telescope was, for those alive during Charlie Chan’s time, something much akin to how we, today, consider the orbiting Hubble telescope. 18:09

Rush: This scene shot at the east entrance to the Colosseum.18:09

Louise: Cool info Rush18:09

Rush: TYSM!18:10

Rush: Transmitting.18:18

Mike in DC: Technology scene18:18

Godwinshelley2: Triangulating18:18

Rush: The police use triangulation here.18:18

Mike in DC: Incorrectly…18:18

Rush: I have always thought that the point sought is the intersection of the three lines.18:18

Rush: Yes, Mike.18:18

Mike in DC: It is, Rush18:18

Rush: NOT a point on a triangle!18:19

Godwinshelley2: And now who said Venn Diagrams wouldn’t be useful!18:19

Rush: :)18:19

Mike in DC: But it’s an awesome triangle!18:19

LibraryJim: I imagine they had full use of the FOX sets, as long as they weren’t being used for otherproductions18:23

Cheekyg has left this room18:23
