Matt1: Looking forward to that….I’ve never seen that16:37

pdclassicdvds: Kato used to be a Japanese valet until Pearl Harbor and then he became a Philipino valet. LOL16:37

Rush: What is usually the case is that most of our members come toward the end of the serial or just before the feature starts!16:37

Rush: We seem to average about 10 people each week.16:38

Rush: Okay!16:38

Rush: 90 seconds to go…16:38

Matt1: Though we have been in the low/mid 20’s at times!16:38

pdclassicdvds: when……..16:42

pdclassicdvds: Great mask16:42

Rush: The gentleman in the derby….16:43

Rush: Was in “Charlie Chan at the Circus” as the local police chief.16:43

Matt1: Quite an entrance16:43

pdclassicdvds: Axford always wanted to capture the Hornet16:44

Rush: I predict…he will not succeed.16:45

Rush: To get the Hornet, I mean!16:45

pdclassicdvds: Did the actress in this serial who played Ms. Case the actress who played her on the radio show? Her voice sounds familiar.16:47

Rush: (snap!)16:47

Rush: Not an expert at all regarding The Green Hornet, I will go with your thought on that, PCD!16:48

Rush: Your hunch might just be right!16:48

Mike n Rachel in DC: It would be fascinating to trace what a work week was for some of these actors–so varied!16:49

pdclassicdvds: the black beauty 16:50

Rush: YES!16:50

Rush: A couple of weeks ago, one of us, Len, I believe, noted that that car was also used in a Batman serial.16:51

pdclassicdvds: he really needed to show him that card?16:51

Rush: In the first episodes of this serial, the Hornet’s mask lacked the hornet symbol.16:51

Rush: Good point, PCD!16:52

Rush: Gassed!16:52

pdclassicdvds: I love that gas gun16:52

Rush: Very effective!16:53

pdclassicdvds: and no one dies16:53

Rush: Yes.16:53

Mike n Rachel in DC: Clue?16:55

pdclassicdvds: Warren Hull the Hornet also played Mandrake the Magician in that serial.16:55

Rush: Hence the title of this chapter: “The Flaming Inferno”16:55

Matt1: Yikes!16:56

Mike n Rachel in DC: “Gasoline”16:56

pdclassicdvds: Oh no16:56

Rush: PCD, I hope that Len shows tonight! he and you will have a LOT to share on serials!16:56

Mike n Rachel in DC: Aptly titled!16:56

Matt1: The suspense!16:57

pdclassicdvds: You can’t beat the old serials.16:58

Rush: WOW!16:58

Rush: What an “ending”!16:58

pdclassicdvds: Does the Hornet survive????16:58

Matt1: 16:58

Rush: I assume that some of the fire scenes were stock from another movie, but if not…amazing.16:59

Rush: The shots of the building.16:59
