Godwinshelley2: Hello everyone

hounder: hi gs

Rush: Storm as we fly to SF!

Nothere: I’m afraid I must insist you don’t Louise. A lady such s yourself shouldn’t risk it.

Nothere: Hey God

Rush: GS!


Louise: Great plane

Phil & Mrs Phil: Hi GS

Mike n Rachel in DC: HI GS!

Louise: Ain’t no ladies here either

Nothere: Oh I didn’t recognize you without your mask.

Godwinshelley2: Rush – you said John Carradine was supposed to be in this one AND also the Olympics

Phil & Mrs Phil: Those people should be bouncing up and down in their seats.

Rush: This prediction was actually true for Victor Sen Yung…sadly.

Phil & Mrs Phil: How’s that Rush?

Rush: He died of accidental asphixiation when he was 65.

Mike n Rachel in DC: This movie was clearly before the “fasten seat belt” sign was invented

Mike n Rachel in DC: How sad, Rush!

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Nothere: Fasten seat belt? I defy you to find a set belt.

Rush: It was, indeed.

Louise: 13 kids

Rush: Yes.

Rush: One more was to arrive later.

Rush: Tender side of CC.

Mike n Rachel in DC: 14 kids?

Phil & Mrs Phil: That plane would be SO rocking and rolling.

Rush: Yes, we learn that in “Charlie Chan in the Secret Service.”

Godwinshelley2: Do they have scorpions in the Chinese calendar?

Rush: No.

Nothere: No armrests, tons of leg room, wide seats. What madman designed this plane?

Phil & Mrs Phil: They weren’t pressurized and so had to fly in the weather rather than above it.

Rush: The Chinese “horoscope” is an animal for each year.

Rush: NOT per month.

Rush: Jimmy’s wrong.

Mike n Rachel in DC: true, Rush

Rush: Cue the can…

Phil & Mrs Phil: Cue the can…

Nothere: We are currently in the year of the ox.

Matt1: <tin can>

Phil & Mrs Phil: Oh..wait, you said that already

Phil & Mrs Phil


Mike n Rachel in DC: There’s an echo in here… πŸ˜‰

Phil & Mrs Phil: That’s what I like, an early body count.

mda19083: πŸ™‚

Rush: I think that was an actual shot of a clipper arriving at Treasure Island.

Nothere: Well theres no where for the body count to go but up.

mda19083: nice can rush

Nothere: Wheres my bullet proof vest?

Rush: When I was there several years ago, I saw where the clippers docked.

Louise: Sad scene here

Mike n Rachel in DC: “only that which comes from heart”. one of our all-time favorite Chan lines.

Rush: Poor Chan needs to break sad news….

mda19083: FYI – mr redley was the bank examiner in it’s a wonderful life

Phil & Mrs Phil: Paul’s iced, xed, ghosted, gonzo.

Rush: Yes.

Mike n Rachel in DC: and he was in “Across the Pacific,” mda

Rush: Behind them is the SF-Oakland Bay Bridge.

mda19083: mike – will check it out

Godwinshelley2: Did they shoot some of this on-site at Treasure Island?

Louise: Good joke

Rush: We saw it as unfinished as Chan flew in to SF in “CC’s Secret.”

Nothere: The twelve signs are rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, mnkey, rooster,dog, pig

Rush: Yes. And Chan sees through the joke!

Mike n Rachel in DC: He was “Mr. Smith” mda. Also a banker in that one.

Nothere: Chan knows his cops.

Rush: Yes.

Fredsmom: chinfest

Rush: chin fest – (Idiom) A lengthy conversation.

Rush: mugs – Thugs, hoodlums.

Dave: Zodiac seems to be hiding in the closet…

Rush: Someplace.

Dave: oh, Kay…

Mike n Rachel in DC: I thought she was a familiar looking ghost, Rush. πŸ™‚

Rush: πŸ™‚

Phil & Mrs Phil: I’m going to have a seance to see if I can make a date with Kay Linnaker. She’s hot.

Dave: Go for it…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yeah, but the plastic bubble doesn’t do a thing for her…

mda19083: πŸ™‚

Nothere: Just make sure Mrs. Phil is elsewhere Phil

Phil & Mrs Phil: lol

Rush: You have to go through Dr. Zodiac, Phil!

Phil & Mrs Phil: TYSM Rush.

Nothere: Hey if you can talk to the dead for chapr feel free. Dr. Zodiac however has a mansion to keep up.

Rush: Jimmy actually thought that THAT would fool Pop?

Mike n Rachel in DC: True, NT. And the Turk must cost a pretty penny.

DanVenture: Great point, Rush.

Dave: I think there are two Zodiac stand-ins…

Nothere: And don’t even get me started on the ancient antiques cost. It’s almost a pleasure just to pay the taxes.

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Phil & Mrs Phil: Rush, did you see my earlier question that, since Hawaii was not a US state then Charlie & son are not US citizens?

Rush: And…the party…!

Len Freeman: OK, found it.

Len Freeman: are we circa 25 in?

Dave: Comic relief…

Rush: Yes.

sarabell2: I think Charlie was naturalized, P

Louise: She has bad hair and a sparkly dress


Phil & Mrs Phil: Yeah, she’s definitely got frizzies.

Mike n Rachel in DC: But Phil it was a US possession…here’s the law: A person born in Hawaii on or after August 12, 1898, and before April 30, 1900, is declared to be a citizen of the United States as of April 30, 1900. A person born in Hawaii on or after April 30, 1900, is a citizen of the United States at birth. A person who was a citizen of the Republic of Hawaii on August 12, 1898, is declared to be a citizen of the United States as of April 30, 1900.

Louise: That’s more Maori than Hawaiian

Dave: Meoooooowwww

Phil & Mrs Phil: Thanks M&R.

Louise: FUR in California is sooooo appropriate

Rush: Yes, Louise.

Rush: His “tape woim.”

sarabell2: Thank you M and R. I never knew if Charlie was born in China or Hawaii

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oh, Louise. I thought that was a mink lei

Nothere: Bring Radini’s martinis to his table

Rush: A crasher….

Louise: A mink lei!!! That is so good.

Louise: Oink

Phil & Mrs Phil: That waiter also plays a cop in other CC movies.

Rush: Chan was, according to Biggers, born in China and came with his parents to Hawaii at a young age.

Nothere: Well tell your tapeworm to remember it’s your plus one, and sill needs to show manners.

Louise: So he was naturalized, not native born

Rush: Yes.

Louise: harlie goes to the back, like me

Phil & Mrs Phil: Well, at least he was legal.


sarabell2: Thank you. I have to have the facts on a fictional person.

Louise: Charlie

Rush: SB: πŸ™‚

Dave: Miss eve….

Louise: SB: Chan is based on a real person

Phil & Mrs Phil: Ok, we all have to be quiet now.

Rush: Chang Apana.

Rush: “Bopsie Loves Toots”

Louise: Foxy loves Toots

Louise: Oh, Bopsie

Rush: …or something like that…!

Godwinshelley2: Subtitles do indeed say Bopsie

Rush: πŸ™‚

Dave: Bopsie sounds more foolish

Rush: He’s holding the text sideways.

Mike n Rachel in DC: You’re holding is sideways….

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Nothere: Eve Cario psychic detective.

Rush: Yes.

Dave: Great idea foe A and E program

Rush: She’d make a great assistant to any detective!

Louise: psychic defective I think

Phil & Mrs Phil: I don’t know. Eve Cairo’s pretty cute. I may have to forsake Kay Linnaker.

Rush: A human lie detector!

Fredsmom: close call

Mike n Rachel in DC: Just don’t try to keep any secrets from her, Phil

Rush: Phil, I will not tell Mrs. Phil!

mda19083: and eve is very sparkly

Dave: Very…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush, that reminds me of the line from Black Camel

Phil & Mrs Phil: Wow, M&R, you have a point.

Nothere: Sorry phil despite her psychic slap Eve is mine. Until Egypt. Yes I’m fickle.

Nothere: And who threw that knife?

Rush: NT: πŸ™‚

Louise: NO LIGHTS!

Rush: Jimmy did some exploring on his own!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Phil…don’t worry. Your rival is…nothere!

Nothere: By the way 16 listed with at least two more impied. Anyone for football?

Rush: Cue the music….

Louise: 18 makes for a great crowd

Nothere: Mike Wins the night

Phil & Mrs Phil: Mrs. Phil is NOT implied.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush…is that a MST3K movie?

Louise: fun illusions

Rush: It would be.

Rush: Yes, Mike.

Rush: LOTS of files!

Rush: Zodiac was REALLY prolific in his blackmail!

Louise: Charlie burns evidence

Phil & Mrs Phil: Indeed Rush

Mike n Rachel in DC: Charlie is reading morning headlines: “Zodiac mansion burns to ground. Arson suspected!”

Phil & Mrs Phil: Yeah, Jimmy’s doing the Kosack look.

Nothere: Not the fanciest pjs we’ve seen in Chan. What was the film with the drgon pjs?

pinch – (Slang) To take into custody; arrest.

Phil & Mrs Phil: “Oh that” what kind of response is that to his question?

Len Freeman: Mr Gregory

Rush: Yes.

Louise: puppy dog chasing bumblebee

mda19083: charlie is a smooth operator

Rush: pseudologia fantastica – An elaborate and often fantastic account of exploits that is false but that the teller believes to be true.

Phil & Mrs Phil: Yeah, and I was a pilot in the Blue Angels.

Rush: There are some who believe that this film was an influence for the “Zodiac Killer.”

Phil & Mrs Phil: Before I became a drummer for Led Zepplen.

Godwinshelley2: So Rush – was Carradine supposed to be one of the characters we see in this movie – or did his character end up on the cutting room floor?

Len Freeman: Ouch… that would be a sad legacy

Nothere: Look Rush for the last time. I don’t want to cast a kitten but f you don’t stop suggesting I’m mmuttin head I’ll need to use a chinesse angle and that’s flat. πŸ™‚

Mike n Rachel in DC: For a change, this conductor looks like he’s actually conducting the music we’re hearing…rare in movies

Rush: Also: A possible portrait of actress Joyce Compton who also, according to
news items and production charts, was to have appeared in this film.


Godwinshelley2: So those scenes with the photos were among the first to be shot? Otherwise they would not have been used if it was obvious those actors would not be in the filming?

Rush: OR…perhaps the photos spurred rumors that hey were to be in the film?

Godwinshelley2: Why would they show up on production sheets?
