Len Freeman: I’m thinking of using a clip from this .. class 3 is about the 1940s16:42

Mike n Rachel in DC: zzzzzzz16:43

Rush: All the smoke recalls “The Jade Mask”!16:43

Rush: Recap…16:43

Mike n Rachel in DC: Beethoven again…sigh16:43

Len Freeman: Anyone have a favorite chapter or moment up to now?16:43

Rush: Serial goers needed to know how to read!16:43

Mike n Rachel in DC: Jump!16:44

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hornet looks baffled!16:44

Mike n Rachel in DC: Looks bad16:44

Matt1: Hmmmmm16:44

Mike n Rachel in DC: Can the hornet fly?16:45

Len Freeman: It’s handy how he always jumps near Kato16:45

Cdirus has joined this room16:45

Matt1: Hello CD!16:45

Len Freeman: hi CD16:45

Rush: WOW!16:45

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hello CD16:45

Cdirus: Hi guys!16:45

Rush: WELCOME, CD!16:45

Cdirus: Hi Rush!16:45

Rush: THAT was SOME escape!16:45

Mike n Rachel in DC: Great for toasting marshmellows16:45

Rush: Must have laded in a tree to break his momentum!16:45

Cdirus: So he jumps out of a crashing plane with not a scratch?16:46

Mike n Rachel in DC: Have to remember that in case I’m ever in a crashing plane…16:46

Rush: None the worse for wear after that tramatic escape!16:46

Mike n Rachel in DC: To be fair, he did look woozy for a few seconds.16:46

Rush: How are you tonight, CD!16:46

Rush: (Sorry, I was watching the serial!)16:47

Mike n Rachel in DC: CA scenery, I take it16:47

Rush: I think the Hornet Mobile really DOES buzz!16:47

Cdirus: Doing good Rush, except I have to go back to work tomorrow16:47

Rush: Certainly, M/R.16:47

Mike n Rachel in DC: The secret formula for the magnetic force?16:48

Rush: Some of the mountainous driving scenes look to me like Mulholland Drive.16:48

Len Freeman: Anyone have a favorite chapter or moment so far?16:48

Mike n Rachel in DC: Actually the plane crash scene was a highlight for us…very fun!16:49

Rush: Actually, Len, I appreciated the Hornet’s escape in this one from the crashing plane! They didn’t “cheat” us.16:49

Len Freeman: Yes… they did “cheat” a lot … 16:49

Rush: He actually had a legitimate close call!16:50

Rush: Yes, Len, that was the nature of serials!16:50

Mike n Rachel in DC: We would like to know how the stunt was done. It seems that some of these were pretty dangerous in real life, too.16:50

Len Freeman: A lot was done with Miniatures16:51

Rush: Off subject: please cast your vote in this month’s Poll question before the end of the month.16:51

Rush: The poll is located at our Entrance page…just scroll down.16:51

Len Freeman: But they’d also shot a lot of footage with early wild stunt fliers… which is why they show bi-planes… that was what the originals were shot on… so they could match the dangerous stock footage16:52

Rush: $300,000.16:52

Rush: About $4.5 MILLION today!16:52

Mike n Rachel in DC: Ah. Cool Len!16:52

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rach is venting about the sexism in that last scene16:53

Rush: “Michael” appeared in the Chan film series.16:53

Rush: “Charlie Chan at the Circus.”16:53

Matt1: Nice tip!16:53

Rush: Precursor to today’s van.16:54

Rush: A “panel truck.”16:54

Mike n Rachel in DC: 16:54

Len Freeman: A much used plane crash scene, shown from inside the cockpit was actually from an early Alfred Hitchcock film that they all reused the footage from.16:54

Rush: AH!16:54

Rush: Interesting, Len!16:54

Len Freeman: Too much trivia in my head right now16:55

Mike n Rachel in DC: Do you know the original Hitchcock film by chance? 16:55

Rush: “Life Boat” by Hitchcock had a good ocean crash scene.16:55

Mike n Rachel in DC: Wish we could be in your class :)16:55

Rush: Or…was that another film…?16:55

Rush: “Foreign Correspondent”?16:56

Len Freeman: Foreign Correspondnet16:56

Len Freeman: You got it16:56

Rush: Slapped a hornet away!16:56

Matt1: A hornet?16:56

Rush: I am thankful that my aging brain still functions okay, it seems, Len!16:57

Rush: A bump or two in the thought process….16:58

Len Freeman: Impressively so16:58

Rush: WOW!16:58

Rush: Pedestrians beware!16:59

Mike n Rachel in DC: silence your motor…and turn off the music!16:59

Rush: Good work with the gas gun.16:59

Mike n Rachel in DC: Kato must be gas-proof…17:00

Rush: YES!17:00

Mike n Rachel in DC: Green hornet could use a radio, dontcha think?17:00

Rush: Len, last week we noted the Hornet’s “new” mask with the hornet emblem.17:00

Rush: Some sort of communication device…yes. But they were pretty big back then…17:01

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oh oh17:02

Rush: There goes mt expensive China!17:02

Mike n Rachel in DC: Out-gunned17:02

Cdirus: Didn’t he tell her to run?17:02

Rush: Next week: Chapter 9 “The Tragic Crash” 17:02

Rush: Keep your gas guns at the ready, everyone!17:03

Mike n Rachel in DC: Check, boss17:03

Rush: :)17:03

Rush: 12 minutes till “Charlie Chan in Panama.”17:03

Mike n Rachel in DC: The dramatic pacing of the Hornet episodes seems less even than “Jack”17:03

Len Freeman: Hm… I’ll have to back and check the new mask out… I thought it looked different tonight.17:03

Rush: This one is very appropriate for today’s holiday.17:04

Len Freeman: They changed the Lone Ranger’s mask in the early moves, but that was to cover different actors under the mask17:04

Rush: Rumblings of war continue from last week’s film into this one.17:04

Rush: I see, Len.17:04

Rush: Makes sense.17:04

Len Freeman: OF course they could’ve done that here too… 17:04

Rush: I think they added the emblem to the Hornet’s mask to make it more interesting.17:05

Louise has joined this room17:05

Len Freeman: They could dub a voice, and basically use anyone the right size as long as they had a mask on17:05

Louise: Hi all17:05

Rush: It is pretty blank without it.17:05

Matt1: Hello Louise!17:05

Rush: Hello, LOUISE!17:05

Rush: Yes. :)17:57

Matt1: lol17:58

hounder: good catch pop17:58

Godwinshelley2: Was this when America was doing the big “hands across the border” to Mexico and south American countries – so they wouldn’t go nazi17:58
