Matt1: Hello Rush!
Rush: Hello, Matt!
Rush: Well, here we are again!
Rush: Another Monday night!
Matt1: Hope you had a good week?
Rush: One week flows into another…!
Rush: How about you?
Matt1: Days really mix together, no?
Rush: That’s true!
Rush: Actually, as i type, we have workers busy working on our kitchen.
Matt1: We’re opening up things here in FL….slowly, but a good sign
Matt1: Ah, nice!
Rush: getting things ready for eventual sale.
Rush: NICE, Matt!
Rush: That’s the glory of life in a RED state.
Matt1: Yes, I can only imagine
Rush: You can bet that California will lag quite a bit behind!
Rush: Not business friendly.
Matt1: Friends in PA are VERY frustrated too
Rush: LOTS of frustration building up.
Rush: Accross the country.
Rush: We can’t just shut down every time a bad virus hits.
Matt1: I was in real estate for many years…..PA is the ONLY state where they can’t work still
Rush: I think that some want to wait until there are NO deaths at all before reopening!
Rush: NO businesses are open currently in PA?
Matt1: Sadly, I feel much is being politicized on both sides
Matt1: No real estate
Rush: Hopefully that won’t negatively affect us when we sell our CA home.
Matt1: Realtors are beyond upset
Rush: In our neighborhood there is a home with a realtor’s sign reading…”Coming Soon”…
Mike n Rachel in DC has joined this room
Matt1: Hello M & R!
Rush: Hopefully for their sake, “soon” means SOON.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Good evening, gentlemen!
Rush: Good evening, Mike and Rachel!
Rush: I need to close my window…REALLY noisy outside!
Mike n Rachel in DC: That is such a California problem, Rush… 🙂
Matt1: Wait until you get to Iowa!
Rush: The workers are using power tools outside.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Oof. That does get noisy.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Easy to forget that you’re still in the middle of your day. We’re winding down here on the East coast.

hounder: we’ve all enjoyed a lot of quiet lately.
hounder: we did too. rush
Matt1: Too quiet
Mike n Rachel in DC: Missed it. Phantom of Chinatown?
Rush: In a weird way…a time may come when we look back on these strange, quiet, times with a little nostalgia!
Rush: “Phantom of Chinatown.”
Rush: Fun to see on a network!
Mike n Rachel in DC: That’s a treat! We’re going mainstream, Rush!
Rush: Yes. Our Number One Son on TCM!
Matt1: Baby steps….Chan next?
Rush: Hope so.
Rush: One can never tell.
Angel has joined this room
Mike n Rachel in DC: Tonight’s film should be more of a “standard.”
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hola Angel!
Rush: One way to help that is to send them an occasional request.
Matt1: Hello Angel!
Mike n Rachel in DC: * Rachel makes note *
hounder: hola angel
Rush: No fir, tonight?
Rush: On our “Entrance” page, there is a link to TCM and other networks for that end.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Fir? Is the Christmas? Perhaps someone stole Angel’s stole?
Angel: Hi all! Especially to the lovely senorita! If Lee Chan were here he’d be more demonstrative, but I’ll be thr fox for both of us.
Rush: We can get our serial ready to run…?
Matt1: Ready here!
Rush: Yes, Angel!
Mike n Rachel in DC: 20th Century Fox, no doubt.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Really to roll in DC.
Angel: Are we still on the YouTube “Part 1”, & STARTING at (9:55)?
Rush: We begin at the 9:55 mark…ending at 25:56.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hm. Mine says “Part 2” but at 9:55…
Angel: Then,ready HERE!
Rush: Part two contains chapters 5-8.
Rush: Or segments thereof!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Can hardly wait for the United Peace Foundation / Commencement Music
Rush: I mean….OKAY…
Rush: 50 seconds…
Rush: 40 seconds…
Rush: 30 seconds…
Mike n Rachel in DC: Oaky…like some Chardonays. Oaky with notes of lemon and herbs…
Mike n Rachel in DC: *swirlls wine*

Angel: We’ll be rather scant in remarks tonite, cuz again are on tablet & typing is not so easy.
Matt1: Hello GS!
Godwinshelley3: Howdy from Indiana
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey GS! Welcome to the Hoosier!
Angel: Who’s here, Hoosier!
Godwinshelley3: Working on Power of Attorney stuff – it’s yucky and heartrending
Rush: Hello, GS!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Sigh. We’re sorry, GS
Godwinshelley3: I recommend you don’t get old
Rush: Yes, GS…I went through that with my mom.
Mike n Rachel in DC: But GS, the alternative isn’t so great either
Angel: I LOVE men with monocle, especially when they’re stolen. The men or the monocle, doesn’t matter.
Rush: SO true!
Godwinshelley3: My husband has permission to shoot me when I get like that
Rush: it is so necessary to do what you are working on, GS!
Matt1: Hang in there GS
Angel: We never see Jawaharlal Nehru lately. I still have a jacket of his.
hounder: hold on gs. ugs
Rush: Actually, marie and I have that written into out living trust.
Godwinshelley3: Hard with Mom dealing with her health issues and dad’s dementia
Angel: Welcome to the casino. Prepare to be shocked. Gambling, old chap.
Matt1: I can only imagine
Godwinshelley3: Sorry I didn’t say hi last week – it was crazy here
Rush: My mother was on the verge of dementia, and I got power of attorney just in time, actually.
hounder: hard stuff to go through gs, but better now when they can make a choice. and you never know when you’ll need the paperwork.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hopefully there’s some peace soon…for all of you
Godwinshelley3: Well – just popped in for a moment of sanity
hounder: hugs again gs
Rush: ALWAYS happy to see you, GS!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Take it easy!
Godwinshelley3 has left this room
Angel: The CIGAR WAS left-handed.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush, this is quite a remarkable group.
Rush: Agreed, Mike.
Angel: I need to make suspicious arrangements. Whom shall i call?
Rush: And it has been so for more than 20 years, now!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Angel…we need to get us a glowing goddess for sure
Rush: It must be due to our mrentor, Charlie Chan.
Mike n Rachel in DC: That’s what I meant–a lot of “life” has happened here!
Rush: OH YES!
Rush: The good and the not so good moments of life.
Rush: All shared.
Rush: And shared as a “Charlie Chan FAMILY.”
Rush: Are we still at the casino in nthe serial?
Mike n Rachel in DC: True. I wonder what the actors in these films would think if they knew that 100 years later they brought people together like this…
Rush: AH! On the road…
Rush: I would wager that that thought NEVEER entered their minds, Mike!
Mike n Rachel in DC: It’s hard to think of “Lost City of the Jungle” as “art,” but…
Rush: But…perhaps they know…somehow!

Louise: aemelton: we need to search for the lost ones in China!
Rush: We have some sketchy information on those films here at this site: “Other Chan Films.”
aemelton: I might take on that project but I won’t live in China much longer…
Rush: One question I have is have you ever seen the Chan books by Earl Derr Biggers sold in China?

Nothere: Uh oh. I see a tall dark handsome stranger in your future Racheal. Mike I hope your nt the jealous type. And someone with the intial B is trying to reach out from beyond. Anyone know someone with the initial B?

Angel has joined this room
Rush: Okay, Lou.
Nothere: Hi Angel
Phil: One of these days I’m going to do a little writing on the Martin clippers that show up in these movies.

Matt1: wb Angel!
Rush: Chan reads “Romantic Moon.”
Nothere: Such patethic leg room. Glad airplanes have advanced so far
Angel: LIBERTY Magazine gave Reading Times.
Rush: Looked like an actual book, but I have never come across it on the Internet.
HonoluLou: I grew up with Sidney Toler as Chan, first.
Mike n Rachel in DC: No problem social distancing on the Clipper.
Angel: Guy can’t even spell Pygmy.
Rush: True, NT!
HonoluLou: The ole’ “Pygmy Arrow” routine~!
Louise: Me too, HLou
Phil: How about suicide Jimmy?

HonoluLou: Cool Louise.
Angel: They called it The Clipper cuzza errant pedicuria that flew about the cabin while the plane flew toward Romance & Danger.

Rush: That was a nice father/son moment…
Angel: They hired EXCELLENT clouds for this ine!
aemelton: not much music so far
Phil: Scorpio is NOT in the Chinese zodiac
Rush: Angel: 🙂
Rush: CORRECT, Phil!
Rush: Jimmy is wrong.
Rush: That WAS the Tower of the Sun.
Cdirus: All that space and he still trips
Angel: Phil: Where do the Scorpi-ans go?
fredsmom: Is that actual footage of 39 worlds fair?
Mike n Rachel in DC: Oh dear.
HonoluLou: Phil, yes. All earthly critters except for one!
Rush: Yes, FM.
Louise: Yes, the real fair
hounder: some of us are talented enough to trip over air
Rush: Actual shots of Treasure Island then.
Phil: I don’t know Angel, where do the scorp-ians go?
Matt1: <tin can>
Nothere: Jimmy wrong? Nonesence. Ridiculous. Abusurd. Totally possible.
Rush: TYSM, Matt…
HonoluLou: Wow! Charlie is really wearing some fine threads!
Angel: Lady in porkpie looks like the wacked-out poetess Marianne Moore.
Cdirus: hounder, at least I tend to trip over actual things
Rush: NT: 🙂
Angel: Pelican Stew!
Phil: OH, I missed cueing the can!
Phil: Thanks for catching it Matt.
Rush: That was the SF-Oakland Bay Bridge.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hm. Must have carried out the corpse first.
Phil: I can’t wait for the next murder so I can do my small part in this weekly drama.
HonoluLou: Rush, what’s the “Trivia” saying of this one?
Mike n Rachel in DC: “Only that which comes from heart.” One of my favorite Chan lines EVER
Rush: In the background we see the same bridge.
Rush: These background shots look authentic.
Mike n Rachel in DC: 2+2…
HonoluLou: No more “Stella by Starlight” 🙁
Rush: Shot at Trewasure Island at the Clipper dock.
hounder: charlie hates to break bad news.
Louise: Just blurt it out Charlie
Phil: I just watched that movie last night Lou!
Rush: Well…she got the message.
Phil: May 10th 1937.
Rush: CC was trying to be gentle.
HonoluLou: Too good, how was it?
Rush: May 10, 1937?
HonoluLou: Pushy, Pushy~
Phil: I watch it every May 10th. It’s a date referenced in the movie Rush. The movie is “The Uninvited.”
Rush: A prank…that CC sees through…
fredsmom: Good movie
hounder: sorry not to give you all my full attention tonight. mom’s feeling chatty
Angel: “Mrs.S-X”. They couldn’t even SPELL the woid then!
Nothere: The ghost movie at the lighthouse Phil?
Angel: Putting the HOSPITAL in HOSPITALITY.
Louise: I love the Uninvited. Very creepy.
Rush: “Chin fest”
Phil: Not the lighthouse. The old house on top of the cliff.
Phil: Indeed Louise.
Angel: Big Shot. Known as “BS”.
HonoluLou: Ah yes…Chin Fest
Rush: AE…I think that you have set the unbreakable record of coming to us from the most distant location!
Nothere: I just flew in from Gotham to get some color. I was so pale.
Angel: I invite the Uninvited.
Dona: I thought Treasure Island was a military base?
Rush: Cesar Romero…
Phil: Where is AE?
aemelton: well now I’m in Arkansas but my job is in Shanghai
Louise: But the oddest think about The Uninvited is the relationship between the brother and sister
Angel: A person of pale! You should benefit from that SOMEHOW!
Rush: it was a military base…today I think it’s a mixture of commercial and residential spaces.
Rush: We were there a few years ago…looking for Chan locations.
Angel: VELCOME, AE! Is your first name a diphthong?
Phil: I just saw a tv piece about the recent building development of TI.
HonoluLou: Suicide induced by blackmail is murder. I need to remember that!
hounder: speaking of space. 5/27 canaveral is sending up a manned launch
aemelton: haha yes dipthong
Angel: Epstein didn’t induce himself.
Rush: YES, Hounder!
Rush: Great news!
Nothere: ARR. I would regale you of my adventures in Shanghai. But I was Not there.
HonoluLou: Wrong saying!
Rush: The USA is back in the space business!
Rush: Yes, lou.
hounder: unfortunately i won’t be here to see it. plan to be heading to nc then
Angel: You ARE Not There! Have you an attorney? Yet?
Rush: “Do not challenge supernatural unless armed with sword of truth.”
Rush: Missed the cash…
HonoluLou: Thank you so much, Rush
Nothere: I don’t remember. I have nothing to say. Ak my lawyers. Pick whichever of those answr you like .
HonoluLou: Who’s the guy in the beard?
Angel: Bring sword, but bring also attorney.
fredsmom: pince nez glasses
Phil: That cab driver was the “injured” guy that, along with his buddy, stole the car from Jimmy in CC in Reno
Nothere: Or at last a fake beard.
Louise: the beard is a disguise
Angel: CC has a face like a key.
Rush: Hm…something was “telegraphed”…?
Angel: “Native of Universe”. HOZ
HonoluLou: Louise, what…a disguise. Rats 🙂
Rush: Aren’t we ALL?
Louise: I want to be a “native of the universe.”
Angel: Gotta put that on my resumé.
Phil: I have some mushrooms that can help you accomplish that goal.
Angel: DRAPERIES HAVE EARS. CC has DRAPIER wit!
HonoluLou: OK Rush, what about that mask?
Rush: “The Eye of Allah Matta…”
Angel: Looks like guv of Virginia.
Nothere: Dr. Zodiac says. You call that puny thing a beard?
Rush: The mask?
Angel: Zodiac IS well upholstered.
HonoluLou: Wasn’t it used in Was Museum?
Rush: The voice of Dr. Zodiac was Gerald Mohr.
Angel: Wax Museum was wack.
HonoluLou: The mask used in “WAX Museum”?
Louise: It’s the Haunted mansion at Disneyland
HonoluLou: I read it in your study…haha
Angel: GOTTA get these effects for my new house!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Familiar spirit. 🙂
Rush: Then, it’s GOTTA be true, Lou!
HonoluLou: For sure, Rush 🙂
Dona: It looks like she is wrapped in Saran
Rush: Interesting…a specter that does voice impressions…
Phil: Wow, we have a nice crowd tonight. 14
Nothere: Floating flutes aren’t really something you can find on Amazon Angel.
HonoluLou: It was the automaton!
Angel: My VERY thought, Dona!!
Rush: And two others departed.
Rush: 16 plus Rachel….17 total.
Phil: Recently departed. Dearly departed?
Angel: Zodiac’s coathanger is still in his drapery.
hounder: big crowd tonight
Louise: Gettin’ crowded. Ouch: get off my foot.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Keeping with the spiritual theme, Phil
Rush: Is that the pig sign next to the cancer sign?
Mike n Rachel in DC: Gotta love the dog
hounder: shove over you’re in my 6 ft space. lol
Phil: lol Rush
Nothere: No those are really Zodiac’s actual shoulders. And is that my leg or Rush’s?
Rush: If request music, must be willing to pay for fiddler.
Angel: The FEE!
Rush: Nearly $400 today….
Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush…can we maintain social distancing with a group this size?
Angel: Notty, we’re just glad to see you! That’s Fox.
aemelton: “on the leve”
Rush: Multiplt $20 by 18.
HonoluLou: Lots of Aphorism.
Phil: Man that reporter needs to lay off the caffeine
Rush: Yes, Lou!
Phil: He’s a little grouchy
Louise: Plain suicide or fancy murder
fredsmom: Quick autopsy
Phil: Not a lot of murders back then.
Angel: One could buy a Terraplane full of Tetragene for $360.
Nothere: 400 today? Oh no. You better have at least a three piece band for that price.
HonoluLou: Wo, who’s this guy!
Angel: Mai Tai!
Phil: Jimmy Stupid Chan
aemelton: aww gee POP haha
Rush: “Hey…thuis is Mai Tai…”
hounder: little mouse lucky clothes do not fit elephant
HonoluLou: I always wear a tux to small parties…who doesn’t!
Rush: Yes, Hounder!
Nothere: Does this count as a tux, or is it just a nice suit?
Rush: Well, Lou…in the day….
Mike n Rachel in DC: Charlie = tuxedo
Phil: Well as I pointed out last week, back then, men wore tuxes at all hours of the day and apparently for all occasions.
HonoluLou: Nothere: I’d say a tux 🙂
Rush: “Better to be over-dressed than to be tossed out…”
Angel: Tuxedo = Charlie!
fredsmom: true Phil!
Angel: This place rocks.
Phil: In fact, I was thinking of wearing a tux next week.
Nothere: But keep your monocle to yourself.
Rush: Nice music, too…
Angel: Expose him as a genius, then.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Eve Cairo
Phil: You know, just to fit in. kinda.
Rush: Eve Cairo….
aemelton: yes nice music
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hawaiian blues?
Phil: Man, she’s got the frizzies
Angel: Bogie woulda been GREAT in the Waiter role.
Phil: So does the guy with the big knife.
Louise: Fur cape
Rush: And he didn’t spill a drink!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Could that be a fox fur cape?
hounder: bogey was great in many roles
Angel: Fox fur? We hope not!!
Rush: Indeed, Angel!
HonoluLou: Believe it or not, there was once a club in downtown Cleveland Ohio called the Koniki, that was similar to this. It has tiki torches and it rained along the wall inside a glassed room with parrots, tropical bird, and thunder and lightening! So cool!
HonoluLou: Kontiki (sorry)
Rush: Doesn’t everyone who is upset toss a knife into a tabletop?
Nothere: Ah it’s all in the fabric. According to google The difference between a tux and a nice suit is satin.
aemelton: I do
Angel: Honolulu, you said CLEVELAND?
Louise: Cats at play!
Nothere: Parrots and a tropical bird? Sounds noisy.
HonoluLou: Nothere: You nailed it.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Venom
Phil: It would have been kind of funny if that knife would have bounced into her thigh.
HonoluLou: Angel, yep, the Heart of Rock n Roll!
Rush: Jealosy brings out the worst in people!
Angel: TOO conceited IS bad form.
Rush: Party crasher.
Rush: Al Kikume.
Angel: The Heart of R&R, with (tiki) torch nearby. SWEEEEET!

Angel: I only accept the fake invitations.
Rush: He made a study of it….
HonoluLou: Yes Angel! It was the hayday in C-town!
Rush: Yes, Angel….
Mike n Rachel in DC: “Even in my sleep.” Could you elaborate on that please? WTF
Angel: He’s not analog, he’s totally prestadigital!
HonoluLou: Yea Eve!
Mike n Rachel in DC: *whistles*
Rush: That was pretty nice. Try slowing that down frame by frame sometime!
Angel: Can she get Cleveland?
Louise: You are all too noisy
Rush: Eve Cairo….
aemelton: this feels a little like a Hope & Crosby Road picture
Angel: Tiki tok.
Mike n Rachel in DC: She’d be awesome to have around during the NFL season
Rush: One of two possibly actual psychics in the Chan series?
Rush: “Actual” I should say.
Phil: She be HYPnotized
HonoluLou: Wow! She’s for real!
Rush: “Bopsy Loves Toots.”
Phil: I hope she can’t read my mind.
Louise: I agree Phil
Mike n Rachel in DC: That could be embarrassing on a date…
HonoluLou: Phil, too good~
Rush: Phil: 🙂
Angel: Over here! “Will Willkie run in ’44?”?
HonoluLou: Dr. Zodiak…crap!
Rush: “Great happiness follows great pain.”
Angel: M&R:The Underwear of the Mind must always be kept freshly laundered, lest—-
HonoluLou: Look out Charlie!
Angel: Give that woman a Mai Tai.

Rush: Poor Eve.
Matt1: I’d ask for the check
Angel: Hello Kitty.
Mike n Rachel in DC: *meow*
Rush: Bad luck!
fredsmom: Close call
Nothere: Well if who ever threw that knife doesn’t go to jail., they can get a job in the circus.
Angel: Bass Brand has brass band.
Rush: Do not need brass band to commit simple burglary.
HonoluLou: Ahhh…a hand!
Rush: Wise words…
Mike n Rachel in DC: Spooky.
Nothere: And knock off that fog. What do you think you are a Monogram?
Angel: How about complex burglary? I have a trombone.
HonoluLou: Maybe they’re at Monogram Studios!
Rush: Perhaps a tuba, Angel?
Phil: I wonder if Jimmy ever got tired of playing the buffoon?
Dona: Spook Room
Rush: Speaking of hands…
Angel: Fredsmom took the Ha’s right out of Fox’s mouth.
Rush: The Saran Wrap…
Rush: CC mentions Charlie McCarthy.
Louise: Fun to see the tricks
Angel: Jimmy Lunceford had a good orchestra. Anybody else like The Dipsy Doodle?
Rush: “The Turk” enters…
HonoluLou: Ah Oh!
Rush: Some music there from “Circus.”
Phil: It’s NOT a revolver. It’s a pistol
Angel: That Circus music is krusty.
Rush: “Finger of Death”
Nothere: Considering your all breaking and entering. Your all under arrest.
aemelton: there’s a difference between a revolver and a pistol?
HonoluLou: Dead men, don’t tell
hounder: it got dark quick
Rush: Lights out!
Rush: I liked the floating banjo.
Angel: Try vanishing into THICK air.
HonoluLou: Why it’s Charlie!
Rush: Note Rhadini’s expression there.
Angel: This guy is either the brains of the operation or an operation of the brain.
Rush: Chan has had experience with two persons in one.
Mike n Rachel in DC: “Massive body an illusion.” What? You mean I don’t have to do all of these damn workouts?
HonoluLou: Cesar Romero, was gracious in allowing the B-level actors to take their bows and lines.
Rush: Nope! Just get the right shoulder pads!
Nothere: According to google the difference Aem is the revolving cylinder. oddly if there is a revolving cylinder it’s a revolver.
Phil: Yes. Q revolver has a cylinder that holds the cartridges and which rotates in order to bring a live cartridge in line with the barrel. The term pistol is more commonly applied to a semi-automatic firearm. I suppose you could also call a revolver a pistol.
Angel: Jimmy has a room at The Watergate too.
Nothere: Right round up every stilt walker in town.
fredsmom: Befriend donkey expect to get kicked
Phil: But you couldn’t legitimately call a semi-auto a revolver.
Angel: REVOLVER was my first Beatles album.
HonoluLou: They re all “Gats” 🙂
aemelton: my fav Bealtes album
HonoluLou: The combo! TXS Rush
Rush: AE: 🙂
Nothere: Rods, heaters,
Angel: Unorganized blackmail diminishes net profits. Go with org’d bmail every time.
HonoluLou: “I’m packin’ an Iron”
Rush: Yes, Lou and Angel…
HonoluLou: Ah Oh, the fire starter!
Nothere: I have artillery.
Angel: Those are Orson Welles’ files for 1939. Sept-Dec., anyway.
Angel: Let us find spider.
Phil: I don’t think the fire is going to spread very well.
HonoluLou: What a good man he was, Charlie…destoying web of spider!
Louise: Charlie and evidence: a fraughht relationship
Dona: wont the fire go out if he closes that door. air and all that
Phil: I think it would Dona
Angel: I’m TOTALLY fraught
Rush: Also, closing the vault door could smother the flames.
HonoluLou: Yea, Dona is right. But it ain’t in the script!
Nothere: Well he is way out of his jurisdiction. And I don’t recal the locals giving him permission to operate. He’s gone rouge.
Rush: Unless CC was only seeking to destroy that one pile of files.
Dona: true Lou
Rush: Yes, Dona!
Louise: I could not sleep in pjs that tight around the neck
Angel: What a LIAR.
Dona: Agreed louise

Angel: Watch our language!
Phil: It’s all Greek to me.
Angel: Norwegians would.
Rush: Got it, Angel!
HonoluLou: A little is good. I lived in Taiwan two years. Never did pick it up, unfortunately.
Angel: This town had NO other activities, evenings!
Rush: I always think that it would have been fun to be an audience extra here in these scenes!
HonoluLou: But I can use a pair of chopsticks like the best of em 🙂
Angel: “Don’t even think it.”
fredsmom: love the art deco look
