In the final scene from Charlie Chan in Rio (Sep 5, 1941 TCF), Poppa Chan reads a telegram from Mama Chan in Honolulu. Number Two Son has been drafted into the U.S. Army. Jimmy Chan happily agrees to defend his country.
HonoluLou: MDA, I know. There’s a gal in Carlisle PA, Deeg, who does a 2 hour Sinatra Show, Streamed on Monday’s 6-8PM at firstname.lastname@example.org. She played some of my music, Whoohoo!
Rush: World War Two Draft
Selective Training and Service Act established on Sept 16, 1940.

mda19083: hello louise
Louise: Is that referring to me, Rush?
HonoluLou: Gotta Be!
Mike in DC: Always returns to the nest, Louise?
Rush: Louise, I have had a lot going on since school ended. I will need to meet with you at some point to resume the WordPress move!
Rush: Nothing huge, but just an assist or two!
Louise: Definitely, Rush. I am back to my daily routine of doing nothing.
Rush: Also, it seems that I am still able to edit this site via Tripod, though I am not sure why and how Internet Explorer is still functioning for that!
Rush: Anyway…not complaining!
Rush: A reprieve!
HonoluLou: Beg honorable permission. I will go prepare Tiger Tea (as Steve calls it) to watch most memorable Chan film. Be right back.
Rush: Save a shot for ME, please, Lou! I might need some!

mda19083: no popcorn for me tonight – but I have my box of sno-caps
Mike in DC: This is one of the wackier Chans, I think.
Mike in DC: Ditto
Rush: In someways, Mike, yes, perhaps!
Dona: Ready here.
Rush: Ready here, too!
Rush: The map at the title, here, is actually pretty accurate, generally.
HonoluLou: MDA “Snow Caps”. I used to eat boxed of em…then I switched to PEZ!
Rush: “Mojave Wells” is fictional, though.
Mike in DC: The whole Borgia tie-in is a bit contrived and it doesn’t make sense…at least it’s difficult to follow
Godwinshelley2 has joined this room
mda19083: lou – i have PEZ also
Matt1: Hello GS!
Dona: Hello GS
Mike in DC: Greetings, GS!

HonoluLou: MDA, really! The PEZ convention is the 23d-25th this month about 10 minutes from my house!
Matt1: Hello m/m Phil!
Mike in DC: Did the castle get built in the desert because land was cheap?
Rush: “Mojave Wells” may have been based on the real town in Death valley, Stovepipe Wells.
mda19083: hello Phils
Godwinshelley2: I’m cued
Godwinshelley2: Hello all
Mike in DC: Lou/MDA: Rachel and I have toured the Pez factory (and museum)!
Rush: Mike…that…and Manderley’s desire for SECLUSION, no doubt!
Phil & Mrs. Phil: Hey we’re actually here BEFORE the movie starts!
HonoluLou: Hi GS, Phil & MS. Phil
mda19083: didn’t know pez was that big that it needed a convention
Dona: Hello M&M Phil
HonoluLou: Mike, the one in Burlingame, CA?
Rush: Times Square would have been a poor choice!
Phil & Mrs. Phil: Aloha to all our Chan friends! Good to see you all.
Mike in DC: True, Rush, but I would have gone for a secluded part of, say, Tahiti
Rush: 75 seconds…
Godwinshelley2: I’ve had an exciting day – saw an Audiologist about hearing aids and am mailing my passport renewal (with hideous photo) in.

Godwinshelley2: Music Different from previous Chan films
Phil & Mrs. Phil: Another one with Richard Derr
Rush: Yes, GS!
Rush: The castle!
Mike in DC: Sounds like it could have been music from a Bogart or other film noir
HonoluLou: A gecko. Love em!
Louise: Yes, GS, weird music
Rush: yes, Lou!
Mike in DC: That’s impressive, Lou
mda19083: lou – is there a Charlie Chan PEZ dispenser?

Rush: Desert flora…
Rush: A fauna ot so, too…
HonoluLou: I have all the PEZ body parts if you know them.
Rush: Black cat….
Mike in DC: Why am I thinking of the beginning of “murder by death” right now?
Rush: Professor Gleason…
HonoluLou: Isn’t there actually some castle “really” in the desert this is fashioned after?
Rush: Scotty’s Castle, probably
HonoluLou: Oh, I thought there was.
hounder has joined this room
Mike in DC: Castles were notoriously drafty and cold. Maybe this compensates for the desert heat? Or is it like 120 degrees in there?
Matt1: Hello Hounder!
Rush: The actual “castle in the desert”
mda19083: greetings hounder
hounder: I’m little late but i made it. hi everyone
Mike in DC: hey hounder

HonoluLou: I love the exchange of aphorisms we’ll see between Charlie and Madame Saturnia.
Rush: yes, Lou!
HonoluLou: Best in the series…aphoristically speaking.
Rush: nice point, Lou!
Rush: But the omelette would be pretty dirty on that road!
Mike in DC: According to the pigeon manual: 38. Sex
a. Sex of the pigeon is difficult to determine without experience ; how- ever, some external characteristics help recognition.
Rush: “Man without enemies like dog without fleas.
“Man who fears death dies a thousand times”
Rush: Good aphorisms in this one as Lou said!
HonoluLou: Yes, so cool. Mike, not everyone has one of those manuals. Very impressive.
Matt1: Hotel is going to lose his 5 diamond status
Phil & Mrs. Phil: Boy that hotel manager is pretty bossy.
Rush: Nice retort from chan here!
Rush: Yes, phil!
Rush: Not the nicest hotel proprietor!
Rush: No wonder the place is probably empty!
HonoluLou: Ha, Ha. True Rush.
Louise: But do they offer chocolate cookies when you check in?
Mike in DC: Ming Toy is not a “creature.”
Rush: Did Chan bring FOOD for the bird?
HonoluLou: This has residuals, of course, of The Chinese Parrot.
Phil & Mrs. Phil: The butler has a bad attitude too.
mda19083: tough to get good help
HonoluLou: Charlie Chan…The Detective?
Rush: Vs. Chan the martial artist.
HonoluLou: Wasn’t he in last weeks film…CC in Rio?
Phil & Mrs. Phil: Yup
mda19083: that’s his brother Jackie
Rush: It’s interesting how some actors pop up in the following Chan movie!
Louise: Were those actors on contract to the studio, Rush?
Rush: BUT, he DOES have a Packard “Woddy” instead of a horse-drawn carriage!
Rush: Yes, Louise.
Phil & Mrs. Phil: That’s not George Zucco.
mda19083: Douglas Dumbrille
Rush: Douglas Dumbrille: [Paul] Manderley
Phil & Mrs. Phil: You mean it’s not Lionel Atwill?

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Oh it’s not old mda, happens every time!
Rush: Nice verbal work by Chan!
Godwinshelley2: MDA – I have the same confusion
Rush: Happens to me, too!

Godwinshelley2: Yes HL – He played the thing
Phil & Mrs. Phil: James Arness is Peter Graves brother.
Louise: Yes, Lou
HonoluLou: I thought so.
Rush: That was a real person, judging by the head mothion when Jimmy bumped it!
Godwinshelley2: It looks like a piano to me
HonoluLou: What Rush? Now your gonna make us rewind after the chat.
Rush: Organ looks like a harpsichord.
HonoluLou: Charlie says, “You first, girlfriend.”
Rush: Black candles.
Phil & Mrs. Phil: Droppin’ like flies.
Matt1: <tin can>
Louise: Don’t drink at that party…
HonoluLou: Rush, you’re very perceptive. Black Candle…a nice touch.
Mike in DC: Could be a small organ…portativ or “virginal” from the late Renaissance
Godwinshelley2: Not a single luxury – like robinson caruso
Phil & Mrs. Phil: Ah not so fast Rush.
hounder: i’m not sure i’d know which glas to drink from at that table
Rush: Jimmy jumps to conclusions…again!
Rush: Me neither, Hounder!
HonoluLou: His face is so horrible…Haha.
Rush: “The old witch did it.”
HonoluLou: Poison is a woman’s weapon!
Rush: And stuffed alligator!
hounder: wonder if the daughters were expensively educated….. and how charlie afforded them
PaulM has joined this room
Godwinshelley2: Hello Paul
Rush: tagara weed (tagara) – (Sanskrit) A slightly hairy, tufted herb with thick horizontal rootstocks that contains a sweet smelling essential oil. Tagara (Indian valerian) is prescribed as a remedy for hysteria, hypochondria, nervous unrest, and emotional troubles. The drug contains a group of iridoid or monoterpenic derivatives, known as valepotriates which are useful as tranquilizers and sedatives. An iridoid ester glycoside designated as valerosidatum (isovaleryl glucoside) has also been isolated.

HonoluLou: A&F, truth like oil, will eventually rise to surface.
A & F Network: “Humble nose”
A & F Network: Lou, Truth does seem to does that.
Louise: It is always the money…
A & F Network: He needs to get another castle, that guy does.
Rush: Oh, well…i tried!
Louise: The stars never lie…
A & F Network: Louise—what if they say it’s NOT about the money?
HonoluLou: Rush, nice try but no cigar?
HonoluLou: Everyone is so well dressed.
mda19083: the chat room is no smoking
Rush: “Remain in can.”
A & F Network: (The stars never lie): What about Cher? She’s still on our planet. PLUS, i read a thing about PLUTO “coming BACK”: you can bet i told THEM: Pluto was kicked out of the Planet Club in 2006, and has a lotta damn gall.
Matt1: Don’t kick it
A & F Network: Candlestick duals as a hookah.
Rush: Yes, Angel!
hounder: love that line canned outpost
Louise: I used to have a candlestick like that
A & F Network: Rush, thank you for your support. I got thrown off the platform for knocking Pluto.
Rush: I still count Pluto! How can a body with two moons NOT be a planet?
mda19083: stay close to the candles – the staircase can be treacherous
A & F Network: And those moons are balls of ICE! Yes!
Dona: I agree Rush. Pluto is and will always be a planet
Mike in DC: Last time he pushed Jimmy off a gangplank
Rush: “Bent, bruised, and bewildered.”
mda19083: i thought pluto was a dog
Louise: I am going to look at Pluto tonight with my telescope
Rush: A slip-and-fall law firm!
A & F Network: This reprises the Young Chan in Armor from a few years prior.
mda19083: no wonder his sculpture sucks
A & F Network: Any missing lawyer is a tiny balm.
Nothere: Pluto is the dog planet?
Rush: MDA: 🙂
