Hawaii_Steve: Thank you Matt. I bring these EXTRAS in order for us to have a better understanding of the players and the production. A true reflection of the times.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Well, from the interview with the real Keye Luke, it also seems to have captured the gentleness and elegance that he had too.

Rush: YES!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Spot on, Steve. Many thanks!

Geno Cuddy: I will watch later


Hawaii_Steve: M&R, you are correct.

Rush: Well worth the viewing, Geno!

Mike n Rachel in DC: The Chan films are nice, but for us now they’re an invaluable window into an earlier world.

Rush: Just began the movie.

Matt1: Hello Hounder!

hounder: just got mom to bed

Godwinshelley2: Hi Everyone

Rush: WELCOME!!!

Rush: Credits…

Geno Cuddy: What are everyones thoughts on the Wongs in general?

mda19083: greetings hounder

Godwinshelley2: The novels are available public domain

Rush: I think this title art was reused in a Chan movie!

Rush: scientific magazine..

Mike n Rachel in DC: We enjoy them, Rich. The earlier ones in particular. Hate to say it, but Karloff is a superior Wong, though.

Rush: Southern U.

Hawaii_Steve: I think the music was reused in the later Chan film too.

Rush: Camels…

Geno Cuddy: this is my first time watching this film

Mike n Rachel in DC: moo

Rich Maine: Small crowd watching

Rush: Well, Karloff had a few more films to show us his “stuff”!

mda19083: one hump or two

Godwinshelley2: Southern Univ – South CA? or Truly in “the south”?

PaulM has left this room

Rush: We can think of this as a “prequil” with Luke as the young Wong!

Rich Maine: Travelogs film

Rush: The one dancer fell during the performance…

Rush: Yes, Rich.

Geno Cuddy: karloff did not look asian at all but he seemed to understand the character very well and he is magnetizing even in the dullest of entries

Hawaii_Steve: As a former film projectionist, the lamp does not flicker.

hounder: long camel string

Rush: This is similar to the Honolulu travelog that Steve shared.

Rush: Silent, with the host filling in the dialog.

Hawaii_Steve: Yes, Rush. Silent travelogue.

Rush: Nice hat.

Rush: Yes, Steve.

Rich Maine: But no fur!

Godwinshelley2: There is a Karloff “Mr Wong” blooper where he goes to open a safe – but it had been locked before he opened it. He had a good laugh about it in the blooper

Hawaii_Steve: Watch the travelogue carefully. You may see a cameo by the Black Camel.

Rush: Yes, GS?

Godwinshelley2: Warner Brothers blooper reel I believe

Geno Cuddy: Heres a question, is the MR. WONG series the only film series whose entire filmography is public domain?

Rush: I find it nice that Karloff would have memories to share of the Wong series!

Hawaii_Steve: tonight’s film is 82 years old.

Rush: Indeed!

Rush: (“Time marches on…)

Rush: Cleaning the place up!

Matt1: Doesn’t look a day over 81

Rush: ðŸ™‚

Rush: Note the “care” taken with the artifacts!

Geno Cuddy→Geno Cuddy: I guess it is

Rich Maine: Dem bones….

Hawaii_Steve: In the WB bloop reel, referred by GS, Karloff blows a line and swears.

Rush: ðŸ™‚

Dona: that would be fun to watch Steve

Matt1: I’d love to see that blooper, lol

Rush: There is a “Bloopermania” cut of Oland doing the same!

mda19083: x marks the spot

Matt1: Awesome, lol

Hawaii_Steve: Rush, nice.

Rush: Interestingly, that one is of lost film cuts from “Charlie Chan’s Greatest Case.”

Matt1: DON’T drink that water!

Rush: NO!

Rush: That dust storm scene makes him thursty!

Hawaii_Steve: Ad just jumped into the video from YouTube.

Matt1: <tin can>

Rush: Doesn’t release poison gas in this one!


Rush: Homicide.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: No, it’s humorous.

Rush: Or a femur.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: You can keep news outta the newspapers, though. Yessiree!

Rush: The fuzzy hat.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Rush: :/ :/ :/

Rush: “My name is Wong…James Lee WONG.”

Rich Maine: The butler did it

Matt1: Bond

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Detective’s hat looks like he grfabbed it from one of those reporterettes.

Rush: “What’s YOUR racket?”

Hawaii_Steve: Even the extras eat better than I do.

Rush: YES!

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Uhp-oh. The eternal fire.

Rush: Yes, Angel!

hounder: the candles look painted on the wall behind them

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: They’re always ANCIENT scrolls. Ain’t anybody making new scrolls? My nephew always says he’s “scrolling”.

Rush: They do seem that way!

Rich Maine: I have combination to every safe!

Hawaii_Steve: Dr. Benton’s last words were, “Whoever leave the room last, please turn off the lights.”

Rush: Yes, Hounder!

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: hounder, it’s a fake wall.

Dona: Dela Street

Dona: ?

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Prince?

Rush: Street and Smith.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Oh BOYH! The Chinese Exchange!!

Mike n Rachel in DC: A Perry Mason fan!

mda19083: the artist formerly known as prints

Rush: Yes, Rich.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: He’s using the Criminals’ Code!

Rush: We see it mentioned in one of Biggers’ books!

Dona: My mom loved Perry Mason. I’m sure I saw them all growing up.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: The Wong end of the stick.

Rush: I used to watch Perry mason with my dad.

Rush: he LOVED it.

Mike n Rachel in DC: LTF!

Rush: Lee Tung Foo.

Rush: As…Foo.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Dona—i have a running Perry Mason thing going with a friend of MINE!

Rich Maine: Same cook!

Geno Cuddy: Perry Mason was okay, but Matlock had spice!

Hawaii_Steve: yes, rush.

Rush: So does Svengoolie.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: “Noted Savant” couldn’ta been too savanty.

Dona: Sounds interesting Angel

PaulM has joined this room

Rush: WB, Paul!

Rich Maine: Yes rush….everyone worked on perry Mason

PaulM: sorry, my computer bogged down

Rush: “FOO…not PHOOEY!”

PaulM: hey GS….are you going to Monsterbash?

Rush: Foo mentions Wong’s father.

Matt1: Ouch!

Rush: Open window…

Rush: The glass!

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: I wonder if CC had to pay a Foo fee or if he came fee-free.

Rush: Tossed out of the window!

Godwinshelley2: Paul – yes I am

PaulM: ;D

Godwinshelley2: In fact I’m helping Mary at the BMovieCast table

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Shutuppa you face, Detective.

PaulM: i’ll be there too. it’ll be nice to see you again

Rush: I can’t say, Angel…but Foo was a fighter!

Godwinshelley2: AND bringing 4-5 boxes of “Rarities from my Curated Collection” (junk from the basement)

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Thanks for snagging the fly, Rush!!

Rush: Analyze it!

Godwinshelley2: Yes, it will be nice to go. Not sure Mary will make it. she has a new car on order and I think they just told her it would get here later than expected

Rush: I guess they did, and found traces of poison.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: We should all hope to be curated. If not collected.

Rush: ðŸ™‚

PaulM: i’m really looking forward to seeing as many of the old gang as possible

mda19083: not a shrubbery

Geno Cuddy: is this thing on, lol

Rush: The gruff detective.

Godwinshelley2: Nic and Juan will be there too

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: No, that’s the Mysterious Traveler. He takes the same train every week at this time. Look in the bar car.

hounder: ..

Rush: NOW the poison test.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Just beat it.

Rush: Nice hat on HER too.

Rush: Eartly ’40s hats.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Mr. Wong is pretty smooth with the damsels.

Rich Maine: But no furs yet rush….low budgets

Rush: The ones we see in later films get bigger and more flamboyant!

Godwinshelley2: Wouldn’t Oland just “taste” for poison

Geno Cuddy has left this room

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes. And so far this is a fog-less Monogram film.

Godwinshelley2: Paul – are you at the event hotel?

Rush: So far…yes!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Just a measly sandstorm

Rush: YES!

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: MnR: Quite rightly! He’s Mellow Yellow!

Rush: ðŸ™‚

Rich Maine: Yup no fog here

Hawaii_Steve: For a Monogram pix, there are some nice set pieces.

Rush: Nice getaway!

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: This IS sumptuous!

Rush: Yes, Steve!

Rich Maine: The old cab swap

Rush: This one seems higher budgeted to me.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Rich, we’ll send you some steamed fog from Nawth ca’lina.

Rush: Yes, Rich!

Rush: “Marfax Lubrication.”

Hawaii_Steve: When I lived in L.A., one could still find those vintage street ligts.

Rich Maine: Up here plenty of ocean fog all the time

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Rush, i almost remarked Marfak myself!


Mike n Rachel in DC: Great, Rush. My Marfax has been squeaking lately.

Dona: they still have them in several places Steve

Rush: Sorry…MARFAK

Rush: It was seen HERE, TOO!

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: MnR, that was why i didn’t stop there. I drive a Studebaker, not a Marfak.

Rich Maine: An oriental vegetable poison….Tetradyne

Dona: 2.00 to fill his tank

Rush: ðŸ™‚

Dona: UGH!

Rush: yES, dONA!

Dona: It’s almost 7:00 out here

Mike n Rachel in DC: 12 gallons for a dollar, Dona. 🙂

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Rich, it’s the perfect appetizer for every Periodic table!

Dona: a gallon ‘

Rush: Caps lock…sorry!

Hawaii_Steve: Today, I spoke with Honolul-Lou. It cost him $70 to fill his car.

Rich Maine: Good one angel

Rush: Gas was probably less than 20 cents per gallon in 1940.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Thanks, Rich!

Rush: I just saw it, Angel…good one indeed!

Mike n Rachel in DC: I was reading a Brit newspaper today…its not over 100 pounds to fill a car over there!

Mike n Rachel in DC: *now

Rush: I believe that, Mike.

Rush: A bargain at a fraction of the price!

Mike n Rachel in DC: I remember “gas wars” in Detroit when it was in the $0.20 range at times when I was a kid.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Speaking of poisoned water, any fans here of the A&E (not A&F) “Nero Wolfe” series? They had an episode with p.w.

mda19083: how many gallons/liters to the pound

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: 14lbs is the weightg of 1 gal H2O, i believe.

Mike n Rachel in DC: I believe it was approaching 5 pounds per liter, MDA.

mda19083: thanks mike – i believe petrol is heavier than water

hounder: i thought water was 8.35 lbs to the gallon

Dona: Yes, Angel I have read most of the Nero Wolfe books and have the dvd’s

Godwinshelley2: I remember 8 pounds too

hounder: i like the otr nero wolfe series

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: MnR, i also recall such things. I still have a set of “fancy” beverage glasses my grandpa got with fillups of his Oldsmobiles.

Rush: Lotus Long was in movies from 1929 to 1949.

Dona: I remember the glasses at the gas station too Angel

Godwinshelley2: There was a Nero Wolf pilot that wasn’t picked up that had William Shatner as the assistant (was his name, Archie?)

Rush: She was in another Wong film with karloff, and a couple of Mr. Moto movies.

Dona: Yes Archie

Rich Maine: A movieola

Rush: We need piano accompanyment here.

Godwinshelley2: Kurt Kasner played Nero in that one

Mike n Rachel in DC: I still have a spiffy set of B.C. glasses plus the anteater pitcher from Sinclair gas in the 70s. 🙂

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: hounder, oh YES! The “New Adventures of Nero olfe” with Sidney Greenstreet & Elliot Lewis was tremendous, top-shelf to me.

PaulM: hey GS….to answer your question…YES, i’m at the new hotel. i also booked a room for the October bash

Rush: She must have just come to in that closet.

Godwinshelley2: Nice I’m there too.

Rush: Knocked out by Ali.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: SINCLAIR!! Do they still exist? In Iowa i saw (& took pics of) a “Sinclair” station WITH DINO, wondered if it was un homage. It WAS a gas station, thatmuch i knew.

Rush: Actually decisioned.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: We told you, the Mysterious One is in the bar car.

mda19083: follow that car

Rich Maine: High speed chase scene

Rush: Next week: “Murder Over New York” followed on the 27th with “Dead Men Tell”

Rush: Matt, you will be able to fill in right?

Matt1: Yes!

Rush: Steve, please bring your extras with you!

Rush: If you want, you can get them to me as soon as you can, and I will reteieve them from the spam and forward to matt!

Rich Maine: The cop is so nice to Jimmy

Rush: “Big man, big feet!”

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Whassamatta Foo? Why you looka so sad? It’s a nice-a place, ah, shadduppa you Fooface.

Rush: Muttonhead.

mda19083: tea foo two

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Sheepish.

Rush: Sadly, many kids perished inside of those old, outside locking refrigerators in the old days.

Rich Maine: Revered elder….Yoda.

Rush: Was this gentleman in “The Chinese Cat”?

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Is true, and truly sad.

Rush: The curio shop owner?

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: I’m getting a comedian for my grave.

Rush: Coffin delivery.

Rush: Nice line by Wong there!

Rush: “Street of San francisco”

Rush: (quack)

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: I just learned TODAY the Tang Dynasty SOLD the astronauts their orange space drink.

Hawaii_Steve: Did you see the cue dots in the upper right of the screen? Reel change for projectionist.

Rush: YES!

Godwinshelley2: Angel – will you have Pop Goes the Weasel played

Rush: Also, I think that those were used in the day of early TV showings to mark commercial breaks.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: GS, you ARE a rake! I shall have the executor of my estate place sheet music for PGTW on the stands.

Rich Maine: Oil! Let’s find that flame today!

Rush: ðŸ™‚

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oil for the Lamps of China!

Rush: Mrs Chan!

Hawaii_Steve: The cue dots for TV stations were white circles, like a donut. Black dots for theaters.

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: Those DOTS are actually EXPLAINED in a Dragnet episode where the perp turns out to be a projectionist!!

Mike n Rachel in DC: (and the SUVs of America)

Matt1: Momma Chan!

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Rush: Mrs. Chan in “Honolulu”

Dona: yes mike

Angel LoMein+Phantom Phox: If Captain Street marries Perry Mason’s secretary, she’ll be Della Street Street.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Maybe this was her job before she married Charlie?
