Mike n Rachel in DC: Very much so Rush16:59

Rush: Nice! A creepy house in a bad storm!17:00

Len Freeman: Part of the beauty of using classical music is that it was out of copyright… no songwriting royalties17:00

Louise: The Chan series (including the radio series) are an education in many fields17:00

Rush: Ah. Yes, that is true!17:00

Mike n Rachel in DC: Plus the musicians already had played it before…17:01

Rush: Credits….17:15

Rush: (GONG!)17:15

Matt1: Boxing17:15

Rush: (Better late than….)17:15

Mike n Rachel in DC: We got the fight bell instead :)17:15

Matt1: 17:15

Rush: Yes…tonight, imagine a ring bell instead of the gong!17:15

Rush: :)17:15

Rush: Mr. Moto teaches…17:16

Rush: Number One Son, Lee, learns…17:16

Len Freeman: Moto is a very different character from Chan… intentionally so. He plays ‘nicer’ in this film because it was really a Chan script. But Moto (Japanese) was played intentionally more sinister and personally deadly17:16

Rush: Lee mentions his Pop soon.17:16

Rush: Very true, Len!17:16

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, Len. Moto seems more ruthless and violent than Chan.17:16

Rush: This is an “almost” Charlie Chan movie.17:17

Louise: Yes, similar scene17:17

me_too has joined this room17:17

Mike n Rachel in DC: Lee has been pickpocketed!17:17

Matt1: Hello Me2!17:17

me_too: Hello everyone.17:17

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey Me217:17

hounder: hi me217:18

hounder: r wellington is a good pickpocket17:18

Mike n Rachel in DC: A pickpocket with a conscience… 17:19

Rush: Yes.17:19

LibraryJim: Is the YouTube picture ‘jumpy’?17:19

Rush: Cleptomania.17:19

Matt1: Had Oland already died when they made this film?17:19

Rush: No.17:19

LibraryJim: so this is a ‘crossover’ movie.17:19

Rush: Oland was alive and traveling through Europe while this one was being made.17:20

Matt1: I was thinking it would have been very emotional17:20

Mike n Rachel in DC: He sort of went “missing” didn’t he?17:20

Rush: Yes, Len. it is our “bridge” between Chan movie eras.17:20

Rush: Yes, to a point, M/R.17:21

Rush: oland’s health improved, and he took a trip to Europe.17:21

Len Freeman has left this room17:21

Len Freeman has joined this room17:21

Rush: He was going to start shooting the next Chan film, “Charlie Chan in Honolulu” upon his return.17:21

Rush: Keye Luke was to be in it with him as usual.17:22

Louise: It has a different look than the Chan films17:22

Mike n Rachel in DC: To my amateur eye it seems less “polished” than the Chans, Louise17:22

LibraryJim: thus Moto’s comment about CC enjoying his time relaxing in his “homeland” of Honolulu17:22

Rush: A little different, yes, Louise.17:22

Rush: We hear Mr. Moto stating aphorisms that were certainly menat for the lips of Charlie Chan.17:23

Mike n Rachel in DC: Ah so, Rush. Now that you mention it, they do sound quite Chan-esque.17:24

Matt1: HH!17:24

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rachel sez HH is one of her favorites.17:24

LibraryJim: Perry white117:24

LibraryJim: !17:24

Mike n Rachel in DC: Kent! Get in here!17:24

Rush: Yes!17:24

LibraryJim: Lee notices the pretty girls.17:25

Rush: We also see him in “Shadows Over Chinatown.”17:25

Mike n Rachel in DC: So he did Chan, Wong and Moto films. That’s got to be some kind of record.17:25

Rush: Whenever I see him in a film up to his “Superman” days, he always looks the same!17:25

Rush: True, M/R!17:26

Mike n Rachel in DC: Perry White was also in a Wong, I think.17:26

LibraryJim has left this room17:26

Rush: Ring announcer does not need a microphone!17:26

LibraryJim has joined this room17:26

LibraryJim: Frankly, inspector, that’s an image I hope never to see. Tiger skin, well, beats white fox fur, I guess.17:26

Mike n Rachel in DC: Let’s get ready to rummmmmmmmmmmble…17:26

Louise: Okay, gotta go. Hope to see you next week.17:26

Mike n Rachel in DC: Bye, Louise. Have a GREAT trip!17:27

Matt1: Take care Louise17:27

Rush: A belated WELCOME to you, Me Too!17:27

Louise: See you soon17:27

Rush: This guy was the lawyer in “CC on Broadway.”17:27

Rush: Lon Chaney, Jr.17:27

Mike n Rachel in DC: The parafeeen test…17:27

Rush: yes!17:27

Louise has left this room17:28

Matt1: Lee’s into it!17:28

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rocky!17:28

Rush: Moto calmly takes it all in!17:28

Mike n Rachel in DC: Love the crowd in the background17:28

Rush: A full inch of ashes on that cigar!17:28

Mike n Rachel in DC: *cough*17:29

Rush: End round one.17:29

Mike n Rachel in DC: You’re doing great, champ. Next round spit another tooth at him.17:29

Rush: Poor “lug.”17:29

Rush: Glass chin.17:30

Mike n Rachel in DC: Nice shiner.17:31

Rush: Colodian.17:31

Mike n Rachel in DC: Moto. Watching everything.17:32

Rush: Stop it, ref!17:32

Mike n Rachel in DC: 8…9…1017:32

Mike n Rachel in DC: zzzzz17:32

Rush: OUT.17:32

Mike n Rachel in DC: Dreamland17:32

Mike n Rachel in DC: Was Lee supposed to be playing #1 son in this film?17:34

Rush: Yes.17:34

Mike n Rachel in DC: (Keye Luke)17:34

Mike n Rachel in DC: So his role changed quite a bit, then. 17:34

Rush: Many scenes were alrerady shot when Oland left the set for the last time.17:34

Mike n Rachel in DC: At least the way he had to play what was scripted.17:34

Rush: What Fox could salvage, they did.17:34

Rush: Then they shot the rest.17:35

Matt1: <tin can>17:35

Mike n Rachel in DC: So he had to blend #1 son with “Moto sidekick”17:35

Rush: TYSM, Matt…17:35

Rush: Yes, Mike/Rachel.17:35

Rush: So, as we heard, Lee mentioned his Pop to explain why he was taking that class and working with Moto.17:36

LibraryJim has left this room17:36

Mike n Rachel in DC: Right. I would have loved to be at the meeting where someone figured out how to make that plot device work.17:37

Rush: Collodion is a flammable, syrupy solution of pyroxylin (a.k.a. “nitrocellulose”, “cellulose nitrate”, “flash paper”, and “gun cotton”) in ether and alcohol. There are two basic types: flexible; non-flexible. The flexible type is often used as a surgical dressing or to hold dressings in place. When painted on the skin, collodion dries to form a flexible nitrocellulose film.17:37

LibraryJim has joined this room17:37

LibraryJim: looks like I get the revolving door tonight.17:37

Mike n Rachel in DC: It’s usually used in microscopy17:37

Rush: WB, LJ!17:37

angel & fox has joined this room17:37

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hello AnF17:38

Cdirus: Hi Angel!17:38

Rush: Angel, Fox!17:38

angel & fox: Fox & ME been trying to salvage our entry here! Geez!17:38

Rush: We are into ouf film.17:38

Rush: We can get you situated!17:38

Mike n Rachel in DC: Gamblers are about to get the big payoff.17:38

angel & fox: Humble selves JUST got back from LITERAL Day In Court. Could have used famed Honolulu detective. Friend framed, but hooray for our side!17:39

hounder: hi angel17:39

Rush: “Sammy” was in “CC at the Wax Museum.”17:39

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hope the judge was kind, Angel. ;)17:39

angel & fox: Hi Hounder! I was so excited for THIS film i actually set it up on my screen before events crawled me away.17:39

Rush: You were on the correct side of the jury box, I assume, Angel?17:40

angel & fox: Judge was a peach, or a pineapple. Justice was served, without vermouth. So is Dum-Dum our big guy in Mr. M’s Gambol?17:40

Rush: Served with a smile!17:41

LibraryJim: oh, that was a nice effect with the newspapers!17:41

Rush: Yes!17:41

Rush: Those always make for a good transition.17:41

Mike n Rachel in DC: And nice plot summaries17:42

Rush: Yes.17:42

angel & fox: Rush, i was the Friend to All. Ultimately, the bailer of friend Defendant, Fox & self counseling him to go & sin no more lest i be out $750 + costs. An educational day whose value i don’t want a 2-for-1 on. Though the BAILIFF complimented me on OUR CHAPEAU!17:42

Rush: 25 grand.17:42

Rush: Around $400,000 today!17:43

LibraryJim: just a chapeau, no white fox fur?17:43

Rush: Lost Me Too.17:44

Mike n Rachel in DC: Moto’s teaching style…somewhat hands off17:44

angel & fox: To you fashion mavens: an inclining-to-floppy-without-flopping Indiana Jones sort, brown felt now rain-soaked. Fox is tossing droplets beside open fire sans chestnuts. What’s our Universal Time?17:44

Len Freeman: serious money17:44

angel & fox: DANGEROUS money!17:45

Rush: 30:3517:45

angel & fox: Did they bust outta jail in the MOVIE yet?17:45

Rush: 31:0017:45

angel & fox: Most excellent deduction! Tax day was LAST Monday!17:46

Rush: 31:3017:46

LibraryJim: Just like CC’s blood drop demonstration17:46

Rush: :)17:46

angel & fox: Mr. Moto is swell.17:46

Rush: Yes, that was meant for Oland.17:46

angel & fox: I wish SOMEONE would investigate tomorrow.17:47
