Matt1: Hello Rush!
Rush: Hi, Matt!
Rush: I just added your new email address to the list, sorry about the “forget”!
Rush: How are you tonight?
Matt1: No problem, but thnx!
Matt1: Pretty good, thnx….yourself?
Rush: Pretty good, thank you!
Rush: Good weather here!
Rush: Worked on the yard a little this past weekend!
Matt1: I’ll be traveling to Philly over Easter and not getting back until Tue, so I’ll be missing next weeks chat
Rush: I heard that they have brought on the masking again, there. Enjoy!
Matt1: Weather here has been amazing too, though heat/humidity coming by end of the week
Rush: I am sure that the weather is perfect a lot of the time where you are!
Matt1: Philly is Philly…..that’s why I love FL
Rush: Move to Iowa in large part for personal freedom.
Rush: My wife said, earlier on, why not check homes across the river in Illinois?” I said, “Not interested…”
Rush: Whenever I go across the river to our bank in Moline, I am struck by the “deadness” of the city streets.
DanVenture has joined this room
Matt1: It’s pretty sad
Rush: (There are no Chase banks in Iowa!)
Matt1: Hello Dan!
DanVenture: Am I too early??
Rush: Good evening, DV!
Rush: How are you tonight?
DanVenture: Hanging in there.
DanVenture: Always good to Chat on Chan!
Rush: I hope everything is okay in your life…
Rush: Yes, to that, DV!!!
Matt1: Though always a sad night tonight
Rush: Very bittersweet…
Rush: A great film, but Oland’s last one…
Rush: I think that it was actually Warner Oland’s smoking habit that led to his death.
Rush: While visiting Sweden, he contracted bronchial pneumonia, and suvccombed to that.
Matt1: I always assumed the drinking, but
Rush: uld imagine that diminished lung capacity was a part of it.
Rush: I see that my internet is hiccupping tonight and my posts are cut short.
Rush: Matt, I maty need you to assist with countdown at the end!

Rush: Warming is good.
Matt1: I’ll be up this weekend, so PLEASE keep it warm!
mda19083: the Easter Bunny will not have to hide his eggs in the snow this year
Dave: End of an era with tonight’s film…
Rush: That’s the sadness….
Dave: I don’t know that I made too much distinction when I was little. All Chan films felt equally good.
Dave: Most of what I saw were Oland/Toler…
Rush: I still feel that way, actually!
Rush: As has been said, “The only bad Charlie Chan movie is NO Charlie Chan movie!”
Dave: My dad used to talk about the latter films, having seen those first run
mda19083: Rush – who originated that saying
Dave: I have to agree with that, Rush…
Matt1: I would love to watch a CC in a old style theater
Rush: Well, it was a joint “invention”.
Rush: Virginia Johnson and…
Rush: Way back “when”!
Matt1: Hope she is well
Rush: Me too. I have lost contact.
Dave: I only saw one in a theater. It was Wax Museum. I would like to see Opera in a theater though.
Rush: That would be great!
Rush: I have seen a few in a theater (a SMALL theater), in El Segundo, CA.
Rush: The Old Town Music Hall.
Rush: An added bonus one time was to meet some members of keye Luke’s family.

Rush: Alrisha…A special welcome to you!
Rush: I know that this is your first time with us?
Alrisha: Thanks. Long time Chan can. Used to have some of the movies on VHS
Rush: Do you have them on DVD, now?
Rush: You probably had the seven Key Video releases from the late ’80s?
Alrisha: No. I just use YouTube
Rush: Okay, that works!
Dave: I found an old pile of vhs tapes, when AMC did a Chan marathon, and I taped whatever they ran…
Alrisha: Yes those were the ones. Lost in a move
Rush: They get a little harder to find there as we approach the end of the Monogram part of the series.
Mike in DC: I had the Key Video tapes, Rush. The trailer before the features was always fun to watch.
Rush: But they are mostly there, as is tonight’s movie!
Rush: Yes, Mike!
Rush: They actually released them on the old video discs, too!
Rush: The “LP”-sized discs!
Dave: A rarity to find now…
Mike in DC: I always envied the “rich” people who could afford the cool video disk players…
Rush: Alrisha, we hope that you will have a lot of FUN with us this evening as we watch “Charlie Chan at Monte Carlo.”
Dave: Prior to dvds, they were the standard for features included…
Alrisha: Thank you
Rush: Yes, dave…and YES, Mike!
Dave: I won my disc player in a contest….
Rush: My posts are slowing, so, Matt, i think I will ask you to run the last two minutes of out countdown tonight!
Rush: Things slow unexpectedly!
Matt1: No problem
Rush: It happened a little last week!
Rush: Alrisha, we count down until exactly 8:15, Eastern Time, when we all start rolling our movies together!
Rush: That way, we can watch the mavie at the same time!
Matt1: I’ll begin the countdown around the three minute mark
Rush: Also, I will ask everyone to pause their copies of our movie at the OPENING TITLE, just after the Fox Fanfare and Logo.
Rush: Sounds good, Matt! TYSM!
Dave has left this room
Rush: Alrisha, more people will be arriving as we near our showtime!

Nothere: Gambling in Monte Carlo? Yes. Yes there is.
Matt1: Aprox FIVE minutes until showtime folks!
Rush: This tradition goes back to when we had a chat room with available sound effects. There was no “bucket,” but the next best thing was a “tin can” sound!

Dave: Get ready for non comic relief
Godwinshelley2: The subtitles suck for the French – it just says “FRENCH”
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: We will be almost silent tonight, as we mourn the passing of my PC. Hoping it’s just the keyboard. We are keeping up (“fantan house” reference just now) but tiny cellphone & screen make participation laborious. But Lafayette oui, are hear!
Rush: Harold Huber shows his versatility in the different roles he plays in a number of chan movies…including next week’s Mr. Moto movie, “Mr. Moto’s Gamble,” which began shooting as “Charlie Chan at the Ringside.”
Mike in DC: *cough*
Rush: Sorry to hear of the keyboard, Angel.

Godwinshelley2: The folks at the end of the bar did say the name of the drink, but they said it fast.
Nothere: Martino stirred not shaken
Rush: That would be about $400,000 today!
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: Notty, you have your finger on something & i know we both wish it was cash.
Dave: That is extraordinary
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: Fox fur!
Godwinshelley2: Talk about timing!

Matt1: If not the butler, blame the chauffer
Phil: Wrong photo Rush.
Nothere: I still say the car did it,.
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: A crime passion El! Romantic trainwreck!
Mike in DC: That’s quite a difference…
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: What is la time avec now?
Nothere: Who is this babbling idiot? No idea we better check.
Rush: Slow brain plus slow Internet equals…frustration!
Phil: You can see their breath when they speak.
Nothere: Don;t worry pop. I admitted to the murder everything is fine now.
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: Thanks! Looks like we’re a few secs behind but i’m not gonna jiggle this.

Dave: Point to the ceiling when making declarations
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: Probably Polished it specially for this role. I picture him in a Kaiser roll.
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: Murdered to death.

Godwinshelley2: perhaps as Kay Kyser – Kollege of Musical Knowledge
Rich Maine: Groan
mda19083: angel 🙂
Phil: The roll of a lifetime.
Rush: A long time ago, we used to find all of the numbers mentioned in a Chan movie, such as “1,000 apologies.”

Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: I know, we are such less miserábles.

Dave: Rush, do you recall the details of Oland, between this features completion and the next film?
Rush: He began filming “Charlie Chan at the Ringside.”
Rush: he started acting oddly.
Dave: He went traveling, but was he protesting for more money?
Rush: Then, he walked off the set.
Rush: It is conjectured that he suffered a nervous breakdown.
Rush: The alcohol certainly didn’t help.
Rich Maine: Didn’t know that rush
Rush: had farly recently separated from his wife, Edith.
Rush: That could not have been good for his psyche.
Dave: Was there any Ringside footage saved?
Rush: The movie was already being shot, but they salvaged what they could, and retooled it as a Moto film, which we shall watch next week!
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: Invisible income. He IS doing about same as me.
Rush: Oland and Luke were to begin shooting “Charlie Chan in Honolulu” upon Oland’s return from a trip to Europe.
Dave: To me, his demise was quite sad…
Nothere: From China to Japan.
Mike in DC: very tragic
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: Mouse drink heavily of everybody’s cocktails, given ze opportunity.
Rush: However, he contracted bronchial pneumonia in his native Sweden, and, sadly passed away….
Godwinshelley2: They already had the next movie set up while working on Ringside?
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: They put the pain in paintings.
Rush: “Honolulu” was set up and agreed to after the “Ringside” affair.
Rush: Oland had agereed to make three more Chan movies.
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: They got any of those Sawviñon Blanks?
Rush: Probably “Honolulu,” “Reno,” and maybe “Treasure Island.”
Godwinshelley2: Was Treasure Island already built?
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: Too loose, Lautrec!
Rush: “Honolulu” was for sure going to be an Oland movie.
Rich Maine: They really planned ahead rush
Rush: I saw the actual proplsed story for that one in the days I was transcribing the four “lost” film scripts at USC back in 2000.
Phil: Cue the can!
Monte Angel & Carlo Foxx: If only the gawds had smilet on more from all the Chans.
Dave: Are the scripts available online these days?
