Dave: Dave is currently in Md, sometimes in So Carolina….

Zip: I’m in Tennessee

Rush: AH!

Rush: Nice.

Len Freeman has joined this room

Rush: The first 45 minutes is sort of an “open” conversation” before we start our movie of the week.

Matt1: Hello Len!

Dave: Hello, Len..

Len Freeman: And Len (and Lindsay) in MInnesota

Rush: What we do is, I will count down the time as we near the start time.

Rush: 8:15 EDT.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey Len!

Rush: hello, LEN!

Rush: …Zip!

Len Freeman: Hi MnR, Dave, Matt, Rush

Len Freeman: Angel

Rush: Mike/Rachel…welcome….

Len Freeman: and

Mike n Rachel in DC: Always good to be Channing on a Monday, Rush

Rush: Zip, I think you have your own copy of “Charlie Chan on Broadway”?

Foxx Furr & Tails!!: Hello all! We were out preparing salad. Overly mature vegetables being saved for Broadway-types in tonight’s selection.

Zip: yes I am. Long time Chan fan and love the accents Harold Huber brought to the films

Rush: We each play our own copy of the film, and if we lack a copy, there is the link to the online copy above.

Dave: Good ol Harold…

Len Freeman: Love Harold

Zip: I’ve have them all so no worries

Rush: Yes, harold Huber shows his range does he not!

Mike n Rachel in DC: One of the unsung Chan cast members, Rush

Rush: He is very different tonight from the character he plays next week in “Monte Carlo”!

Matt1: Agreed!

Zip: to think he only lived to 49 but was in so many films and radio shows

Rush: Yes.

Zip: Most definitely

Len Freeman: BRB — making dinner here

Matt1: I was about to say, next week is a much different Huber!

Dave: It is kind of funny to see him playing straight New York tough guy…

Zip: Re watch Rio last night which was again a different role

Rush: YES!

Rush: We will eventually be featuring that one.

Dave: He is also in the Mr Moto that started as a Chan film…

Zip: My interest in all the cast members in the films lead me here as I mentioned before

Rush: Yes, indeed!

Rush: “Mr. Moto’s Gamble.”

Matt1: aka CC Ringside?

Dave: That is surprisingly good…

Rush: That’s the film that began shooting as “Charlie Chan at the Ringside” with Warner Oland.

Rush: yes!

Zip: Loved the reruns as a kid in St. Louis and there was a commentator who would give trivia before the commercials.

Dave: We should enjoy that one again…

Rush: We will in a couple of weeks!

Dave: hooray…

Rush: 🙂

Foxx Furr & Tails!!: Hello Zip! Angel here, in east coast US. Wanted to greet you as i at least hadn’t “met” you here before.

Mike n Rachel in DC: That’s a good Moto…would have been a better Chan 😉

Zip: Hello Angel

Zip: Keye Luke was in Moto Gamble yes?

Len Freeman has left this room

Dave: m/r, agreed

Rush: Zip, you will notice that we have fun as the movie is showing.

Matt1: Yes

Matt1: As CC #1 son!

Rush: Sometimes jokes and comments regarding the action….

Rush: Other times “historical” notes.

Zip: Our own version of Riff Tracks?

Dave: More mystery than science…

Matt1: Nice how they honor Oland too

Rush: “Fox Furr & Tails” (Angel) is our master of verbal pun and chaos!

Zip: Wasn’t there a picture of Oland on the table in Toler first film

Rush: You will see he kind of keeps us on our toes!

Rush: At the Chan dinner schen, Zip?

Foxx Furr & Tails!!: FYI, Zip, you may see mentions in the chat of “Fox”. Foxx Furr is my imaginary companion, named in awareness of Fox Fur, which appears, draped around sultry shoulders, rather often in the Chan films. Foxx is an allegory, an avatar, avuncular.

Matt1: In three weeks we can point it out though

Rush: There IS a photo of Toler as Chan seen in a scene with Jimmy and Tommy after Pop has left with the family to the maternity ward of the hospital.

Foxx Furr & Tails!!: TYSM Rush!!!!!!!!

Rush: (Bowing)

Louise has joined this room

Louise: Hey Chan Clan!

Zip: yes. Charlie jr and Jimmy are doing a scene in front of it.

Dave: louise…

Matt1: Hello Louise!

Rush: 23 minutes to go….

Rush: Hello, Louise!

Louise: Nice to share a trip to Broadway with you

Rush: see you tonight!

Foxx Furr & Tails!!: Foxx keeps licking, i keep ticking.

Rush: Did you catch my email?

Louise: Yes Rush, let’s email to sey a tim

Dave: f/t: yow!

Louise: time

Zip: yep Tommy! Same actor in another movie named Charlie JR.

Rush: Okay…sounds good!

Louise: set a time (hands greasy from popcorn!)

Zip: Angel you are a riot with the words!

Rush: I think we are nearly there….I HOPE!

Rush: 🙂

Rush: I am eating my dinner as we converse. I missed Len’s departure….sorry…

Rush: 19 minutes…

mda19083 has joined this room

Matt1: Hello Philly!

mda19083: hello can clan

Rush: Zip, when you ready your personal copy of “Broadway,” please pause it at the OPENING TITLE” just after the Fox logo and fanfare!

mda19083: can clan

mda19083: chan clan

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hi MDA

mda19083: hello matt

Dave: evening, mda

Rush: How’s the new computer doing, Matt?

mda19083: greetings dave

Matt1: There are challenges, lol

Dave: rush: got a used copy of the Hanke book today…

Louise: Is the Can Clan the same as the Chan Clan, M&R?

Matt1: But, I’m connected….and I’m here!

Dave: I am sure you know that one..

Mike n Rachel in DC: That’s all that matters, Matt!

Matt1: First things first!

Mike n Rachel in DC: (We hope you got the “tin can” firmware upgrade)

Rush: In tonight’s film, we see Charlie Chan and son, Lee, heading home from what seems to have been a European vacation following the Olympics.

Rush: We see that from Lee’s towel “collection.”

Dave: yes

Mike n Rachel in DC: They didn’t take the airship back from the Olympics apparently.

Rush: No!

Rush: I don’t think that the HPD would spring for that again!

Rush: That was only to get Chan to Germny as fast as possible before!

Rush: And, in “Chan Time” the airship would not have met tragedy yet.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes. Just looked it up. “A one-way ticket on the Zeppelin airship between Nazi Germany and the United States in 1937 cost $450 – the equivalent of $7,619 today.”

Louise: Is that coming or going?

Dave: Those costs have really blown up…

Matt1: Like using the Concorde!

Rush: “Give My Regards to Broadway”/Yankee Doodle Dandy” title medly!

Rush: Yes, Matt!
