Matt1: Only took me how many years? lol

Rush: Hello!

Rush: How are you tonight?

Matt1: Hello Hounder!

Rush: Matt…that’s the way it goes with ME, too!


Rush: You got in earlier tonight, Hounder!

Dave: Have to do more research, but he shares my last name (Beach) and went by the name of Brandon Beach. Was active as a bit player in more than 100 films, from this one tonight, plus Citizen Kane, Casablanca and several Perry Mason episodes. Having a hard time finding what he looks like…

hounder: tired. Mom spent 3 days in the hospital with an unidentified infection. we got home yesterday. we’re trying to get backin the home routine.

Rush: Interesting information, Dave!

Matt1: So sorry to hear Hounder, but hope she’s feeling a bit better

hounder: neat trivia dave

Dave: I am hoping to see what he looks like from a Perry Mason show, where he is a court reporter

Rush: Being a “bit player” in more than a hundred films is actually quite an accomplish,emt!

hounder: seems to be matt.

hounder: on antibiotics for another week. hoping that fixes it.

Dave: It is tough to have lingering infections…

Matt1: No way of googling a pic from him Dave?

Rush: Dave, I just tried to find a picture of Brandon Beach, but, unfortunately, whith his name, lots of images of guys on the beach come up!

Dave: Couldn’t find one, but did not spend much time on it…

Dave: There is a young actor with that same name…

Rush: If you can fing any of his movies on YouTube, you might have luck finding him.

Rush: (find)

mda19083 has joined this room

mda19083: hello all

Matt1: Hello Philly!

Rush: AH! That explains the youthful gentlemen that come up!

Rush: MDA!


Rush: And Happy Easter!

Dave: This fellow died in 1974 in California…one of his parts was in an educational film, where he has a leading role…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Last week was spring break, and today was another Easter holiday…lucky Rachel

Rush: Yes.

Dave: The uncredited part is a ringside spectator

mda19083: unfortunately I do not celebrate spring break due to my age

Rush: I am off today and tomorrow as the students are all involved in state testing.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hi MDA and hounder

hounder: hi mn r

Rush: Hounder, how is your mother tonight?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Good for you, Rush! A full day to get in the Chan frame of mind. 😉

Rush: YES!

Mike n Rachel in DC: We were wondering if you were teaching after the move…looks like yes.

Rush: I got a VERY interesting item off of eBay this past week.

Mike n Rachel in DC: DO tell…

hounder: i think we’re doing better. hopefully we get settled back to home routine. we had a active night last night

hounder: tell tell rush

Mike n Rachel in DC: Are you back in NC, hounder?

Rush: It is a news item from February of 1938 regarding Warner Oland.

Dave: anything worth getting a photo…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Newspaper, Rush?

hounder: no matt. we’re in fl. and will be as long as mom is with me. she can’t make the trip back.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Gotcha (re: mom)

Rush: lly, and involves his wandering around and doing strange things, related to his breakdown that caused him to leave the set of “Charlie Chan at the Ringside.”

Dave: Wow! Timely!

Matt1: Interesting

Rush: There is a photo included showing him dressed in a nice suit, wearing sun glasses, and walking in the Tucson, AZ Police parking lot in his socks.

Mike n Rachel in DC: EPIC, Rush. New cover photo for the website, perhaps? :w00t:

Rush: So, this is the first item I have ever seen that verifies his difficulties following his departure from the shooting of “Ringside.”

Rush: I will share it when I receive it.

Dave: Very interesting…

Matt1Dave: Can’t wait!

Rush: Matt, will you be able to stay till the countdown tonight? I am having Internet issues again, it see,s!

Rush: Seems

Rush: I forgot to reset my router today. Sometimes the reboot has a positive effect!

Matt1hounder: No, sorry. I’m actually going to head out now

Rush: Okay.

hounder: cool

Matt1: I’ll catch you all next week.

Rush: Well, maybe I can round up another volunteer for the final 2 minutes!

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: Take care, Matt…see you next week!

Dave: Take care!

Rush: Matt…have a great visit.

hounder: be safe

Matt1: Enjoy the film!

Rush: take care…

Rush: TYSM!

Rush: I have a small “bonus” to share tonight.

Matt1 has left this room

Mike n Rachel in DC: oooh

Rush: A link to the trailer for tonight’s movie.

Dave: Yay…

mda19083: sounds good


Rush: Take a look!

Rush: It is only a couple of minutes long.

Rush: And, thaere you have it…if you watched!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Very nice…and the music sounds GREAT on that recording

Rush: We will see Harold Huber as yet another cop character!

Rush: Lt. Riggs.

Rush: Agreed, Mike!

mda19083: nice – thanks for sharing Rush

Rush: Fun little clip, wasn’t it?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Very fun

mda19083: it looks like a few of the Chan regulars appear in tonight’s feature

Rush: Lt. Riggs mentioned his ringside ticket costing “12 bucks.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, MDA. It’s like meeting old friends in an unexpected place.

Rush: That would be about $200. Still a great bargain for a championship match!

Dave: Nice clip

Rush: Yes, Mike!

mda19083: I guess they were all 20th Century Fox studio actors

Rush: Yes, MDA!

Rush: When “Ringside” was scrapped, Fox used as much of the shot footage as they could.

mda19083: how do the Mr Moto films stack up?

Rush: So, the actors who were to have been in “Ringside” were in “Gamble.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Must have been a challenge for the director and editor, Rush!

Rush: Must have been!

Rush: Yes, again, MDA!

Rush: And, it’s also interesting, I think, how many times in the last several films, we see Huber as a police detective!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Love “The Mysterious Mr. Moto” in particular

Rush: AH!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Huber was a real talent as a character actor!

Rush: I really agree!!!

Dave: exactly…

mda19083: I guess that I will need to check out the Mr Moto series

Rush: Some will criticize his performance in “City in darkness,” but that is the “fault” of the director!

Dave: Any suggestions for good ones…?

Rush: BUT, it also shows Huber’s range as an actor!

Mike n Rachel in DC: I first saw him in Monte Carlo and thought he was just a buffoon. Then he showed up in other films as really convincing characters of all types.

Rush: YES!

Dave: agree, m/r….

mda19083: an actor is only as good as his part was written

Rush: Agaim, he was directed to play the roles as he did.

hounder: didn’t he play in one of the thin man’s as well?

Rush: 11 minutes to go…

Rush: I have seen Huber turn up in a number of films…unexpectedly!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, hounder. And in that one, he’s much more of a “normal” dramatic actor. Really good.

Rush: I think you are right about a Thin Man appearance.

Rush: 9 1/2 minutes…

Rush: It seems that the Easter holiday might cut into our attendance tonight.

Rush: That happens.

Mike n Rachel in DC: As my grandma would say, Rush, “all of the important people are here.” :-)

Rush: More chips and dip for everyone, then!

Rush: Mike: 🙂

Dave: Right, the ones that matter…

mda19083: and leftover ham

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: Don’t forget the pizza

Rush: AH!

Rush: Never forget the pizza!

hounder: dibs on the white queso dip. 🙂 but i’ll share

Rush: 🙂

mda19083: pizza for Easter?

Rush: Why not?

Mike n Rachel in DC: (Italian family, MDA)

Rush: Pizza is ALWAYS good!

Dave: pizz-ster…

Rush: Had some for dinner tonight, actually!

Rush: Credits….

Rush: Chanesque opening music…

Rich Maine: Huber again!

Rush: Yes!

Godwinshelley2′: I’d watch the fights with my Dad. He said you could tell who was going to lose – he had loose trunks and would spend most of his time pulling them up

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sounds like Wagner

Rush: AH!

Rush: Criminology class…

Godwinshelley2′: Louise – they should use the nutshell murders for this class

Dave: Comic relief…

Rush: Yes.

Louise: That would be perfect, GS

Rush: Imagine Warner Oland in the these scenes.

Rush: One can “feel” his presence through this movie!

Godwinshelley2′: Would Warner be teaching this class in the original script?

Rush: Especially when Moto uses aphorisms obviously meant originally for Chan!

Rush: Yes, GS, I am certain of that.

Dave: I could see him teaching the class but not flipping the cop…

Godwinshelley2′: That would have been nice. Seeing Oland as instructor

Mike n Rachel in DC: there’s a Chan-ism

Rush: Right, Dave!

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Rush: Moto refers to Chan here.

Rich Maine: Letter from pop

Rush: “Back in Honolulu.”

Louise: Fun crossover here

Dave: In Race Track, he does the instruction about the blood splatter…

Rush: Yes!

Godwinshelley2′: Which town is this taking place in?

Rush: Good question.

Rush: maybe we can determine that.

Rush: would guess NYC?

Godwinshelley2′: That detective’s father was a vast world traveler? Monte Carlo, New York, etc.

Rush: Yes.

Godwinshelley2′: Lon Chaney alter!!

Rush: Maybe Lee stayed over in NYC as his Pop headed home.

Godwinshelley2′: alert

Dave: Lon Chaney in back…

Rush: Yes, GS!

Rush: YES!

Rush: There he was.

Rush: And is.

Rich Maine: Werewolf

mda19083: imdb say Riggs is with nypd

Dave: This actor on right was in Wax Museum

Godwinshelley2′: Ah – good to know

Rush: Okay, then.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Stanton kisses the canvas in the 4th!

Rush: Sounds reasonable.

Godwinshelley2′: Wonder if Eddie Mueller’s father is writing his sports column about this fight

hounder: ..

Godwinshelley2′: I like Eddie’s intros to the Noir Alley on TCM

Rush: YES!

Rich Maine: Love Noir Alley

Rush: And, his dad was a sports writer.

Rush: As you noted.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Perry White in the audience

Rush: Perry White, again!

Rush: Yes.

mda19083: perry white

Dave: Fur sighting…

Rich Maine: Great Cesar ghost

Rush: 🙂

Louise: Always a fur sighting…

Godwinshelley2′: This makes me think of Superman fighting the Wolfman! What a crossover that would be

Rush: “So refreshing when you get home from work.”

Dave: Cloth vs Fur….

mda19083: $10 – hey big spender

Rush: More than $150 today.

Mike n Rachel in DC: $10 sez Fur Girl takes her in the 3rd

Rush: Already has a cut over his eye.

mda19083: i’ll take that bet mike

Rush: Biff Moran.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Let’s get ready to ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuumble

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Chaney sighting…

Rush: “Wolf Man at the Ringside.”

Dave: Guy to his left was reporter in Wax Museum…

Louise: Wolf Man may turn on all of them

Rush: Yes, Dave! Good eye!

Rush: IF the moon is full.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Even a man who is pure of heart and who says his prayers by night…

Rush: Yes!

Mike n Rachel in DC: …may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the moon is full and bright

Godwinshelley2′: Actually with him, it could be Count Dracula, Im-ho-tep, or Frankenstein’s Monster too. He did it all.

Mike n Rachel in DC:alien:

Rush: Moral: never leave one’s ticket in one’s hat band!

Dave: Chaney did it all!

mda19083: that’s why i don’t wear a hat

Godwinshelley2′: He was even in Mantan Moreland’s last picture, Spiderbaby

Rush: Cue punching bag sound

mda19083: ward bond sighting

Rush: AH!

Rush: Star-studded affair!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Cue Rocky theme

Godwinshelley2′: Rush – have you checked to see if ANY crowd shots might still have Warner in them

Rush: Moto watches closely…

Rush: He’s down!

Mike n Rachel in DC: zzzzzz

Louise: I never got excited about boxing.

hounder: me either louise

Rush: Looks like the mob loses.

Godwinshelley2′: Yeah – not my favorite sport either

Rush: My dad used to watch “The Friday Night Fights.”

Louise: Speaking of the Wolf Man, did I ever tell you I bought a replica of his movie cane? Very cool.

Godwinshelley2′: So a hat cost $5?

Rush: Also, what if some innocent person drove through them first?

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: We’re at (33:30): Oh so?

Mike n Rachel in DC: 37:00

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: That pesky Fisk kid is back, waving the candle. Says it’s time to re-tire.

Mike n Rachel in DC: From the mouths of babes to the drooling of ancients. LOL

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: Gracias!!

Rush: That actor was also the attorney in “Broadway.”

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: We’re at the Boxing Camp, right?

Mike n Rachel in DC: He’s a stitch in this one, Rush

Rush: Chaney on the bleachere.

Godwinshelley2′: Stitch or Snitch

Rush: Yes.

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: That suit later became upholstery at my Indiana aunt’s house.

Rush: Joey.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Gee Angel, I thought my grandma snagged it for her tablecloth

Rush: 🙂

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: Grab a plane with Tetragene on it. Bring back some peanuts if you can.

Rush: Bad combo, Angel!

Mike n Rachel in DC: So that dialog was pretty bland, but Huber really delivers

Rush: Huber’s character is like the one he played in “Broadway.”

hounder: brb dog walk

Rush: Okay, Hounder!

Rush: Sorry…missed tin can tonight.

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: MnR: Confidentiallyu, that suit was not as unique as Louella & Hedds said. They were $14 with two pairs of pants all over the West Coast till a stray Jap fire-arrow lit the factory in 1943.

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: HELLO KITTY!

Dave: The flip!

Rush: Saved by the kitty!

Rush: Chan: “Thank you so much.”

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: We like that the gun can be set at a jaunty angle.

Dave: Right!

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: STEELE RUSTY, SAY TOUTS

Rush: SO MUCH of Charlie Chan is still in this film!

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: Let’s take a Rodeo drive.

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: Rush, i have been using a time vehicle to visit (at “present”) the early Thirties; i was writing a phantasy phor a phriend who’s a Perry Mason fan, in which we from “here” pass in, out, & around the great man in all his incarnations & among lowlifes, highlife, & innnnnteresting L.A. clubs. Maybe i coukld drop you in 1938?

Mr.Angel + Gambler Foxx: Lou, you MUST share the putative Chanmas Carol!
