Matt1: Long walk17:23

Godwinshelley2: TOO exciting for a stroll to the taxi17:23

pdclassicdvds: Exciting walking. Typical Monogram film/17:23

Mike n Rachel in DC: a bit overwrought perhaps, CD17:23

pdclassicdvds: where is the Devil Bat and Bela Lugosi. LOL17:23

Cdirus: We finally got a break today from the heat.17:27

Godwinshelley2: Louise – do you want to help me run the group next week when Rush & Matt are unavailable?17:28

Matt1: Off to the bar!17:30

Godwinshelley2: Sounds like you should be in the bar17:30

Godwinshelley2: BRB – laundry calls17:30

pdclassicdvds: I am sure a Chan movie would be popular in a bar. lol17:30 I wish I drank more than a glass of wine every few days. Then I would hit the bar and not leave!17:30 Well if the power returns I will come back here to celebrate. Until then, my iPad is dying…17:31

Mike n Rachel in DC: Three flies? Charlie, you need a new tailor! 17:41

Rush: “A” Card.17:41

Frosty: She is a go getter17:42

Atomant: we were wondering what that is ?17:42

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is the maid wearing a bustle?17:42

Matt1: Mrs Butterworth17:42

Rush: 17:42

Atomant: haha17:42

Rush: “A” card – The lowest-level gasoline ration card issued by the United States government during World War II.17:43

Atomant: TYSM Rush17:43

Rush: Jive talk!17:43

Rush: “Confucius, Jr….”17:44

pdclassicdvds: Confucius Jr. LOL17:44

Mike n Rachel in DC: Cool. Gas was rationed to save rubber…17:44

Rush: And, of course, to save on national oil consumption.17:44

Rush: he can walk!17:45

Mike n Rachel in DC: The story I hear, Rush, is that there was plenty of oil. The real scarcity was rubber–couldn’t get it across the ocean–whereas all the oil came from Texas.17:45

Rush: AH!17:45

Mike n Rachel in DC: Another “cripple” outed by Chan.17:45

Rush: Interesting.17:45

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yeah…that sure changed by 1973, didn’t it?17:46

Rush: makes sense, M/R.17:46

Mrs Pendleton: Hi Rush!17:46

Mike n Rachel in DC: eeeek17:46

Mike n Rachel in DC: whew17:46

Matt1: BB music17:47

Rush: ()17:47

Mrs Pendleton: Mikw, you did it again!17:47

Rush: Yes to the music, Matt!17:47

Rush: The “BB Theme.”17:47

Mike n Rachel in DC: Did what?17:47

Mrs Pendleton: You changed my perspective.17:48

Rush: :)17:48

Rush: SA realization by Pop.17:48

Mrs Pendleton: This Monogram does do a lot with a small budget!17:48

Mike n Rachel in DC: 17:48

Rush: Yes, Mrs. P.17:48

Mrs Pendleton: Earlier I was saying I typically don’t watch the Monograms, but wanted to love them more.17:49

Rush: I have to say, I enjoy the Monograms. Onr of the reasons is they had to work around theit small budgets!17:49

Rush: Turn to other means of creativity!17:49

Mike n Rachel in DC: But they were quite creative17:49

pdclassicdvds: You have to be a real Chan fan to appreciate the Monogram entries into the series.17:49

Frosty: This is one of my favorites17:50

Mrs Pendleton: Very creative.17:50

pdclassicdvds: Nice salute17:50

Rush: These films really pick up on elements of the changing culture during the War years, I feel.17:50

Mike n Rachel in DC: I wonder if the director made them all come through that curtain and do something17:50

Rush: “Like talk to typhoon.”17:50

Mrs Pendleton: My Dad only liked Warner Oland as Charlie Chan17:50

Rush: Yes, that is the opinion of many, but not all.17:51

Mike n Rachel in DC:’s sort of like Sean Connery as James Bond17:51

Atomant: after all these years I finally now know what she was saying. Typhoon17:51

Rush: I take it to be something like Oland 51-49%.17:51

Atomant: I tend to yoyo17:52

Mrs Pendleton: Yep, but Sidney Toler was the first Chan I saw, so I love them both.17:52

Rush: AA: :017:52

Matt1: Oland was the original the everyone compares too17:52

Rush: ;), I meant!17:52

Rush: Yes, Matt.17:52

Mrs Pendleton: Dad saw the originals as they were released17:52

Mike n Rachel in DC: True…we tend to like some movies better than others. And they’re a variety of Oland/Toler’s17:52

pdclassicdvds: I like the 20th Century Fox Sydney Toler17:52

Rush: Earl Derr biggers really loved his portrayal of CC!17:52

Mike n Rachel in DC: They both did a great job carrying the films17:53

Rush: (Electric…)17:53

Rush: Fun stuff.17:53

Mike n Rachel in DC: IT’S ALIVE! IT”S ALIVE!17:53

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oh. Sorry, wrong movie.17:53

Atomant: Do you watch the Roland movies too ?17:53

Matt1: I think each Chan tried to add their own….different era’s too, IMHO17:53

Mrs Pendleton: hahaha!17:53

pdclassicdvds: Roland Winter wasnt bad17:53

Rush: I have an ivory page turner with a dragon-design handle that was a gift from Biggers to Oland.17:53

Atomant: Nice17:54

Godwinshelley2: Wow Rush – so nice17:54

Mrs Pendleton: Really Rush!17:54

Matt1: VERY cool, Rush17:54

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oh gosh, Rush. Where did you get that?17:54

Mrs Pendleton: Do you have a pic of it on your site?17:54

Rush: Yes.17:54

Rush: In our Study under “Warner Oland Gallery”17:55

Mike n Rachel in DC: Clever girl…almost17:55

Rush: Here it is…17:55

Rush: 17:55

Rush: Nice move by Chan!17:55

Frosty: Nice17:55

Atomant: That is so cool looking. Unusual17:55

Rush: Just missed the LIVE bomb!17:55

Mike n Rachel in DC: Slick. Now…hopefully he doesn’t blow up the bombs17:55

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oops17:56

Mrs Pendleton: That is SO cool!!!17:56

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush…that is beautiful.17:56

Atomant: 200 yards . They should be dead17:56

Rush: One of the more interesting things I have in my CC collection.17:56

Godwinshelley2: It is beautiful – is there any documentation verifying it17:57

Rush: Have you see the warner Oland scrapbook that I have placed in this site?17:57

Rush: It is a scrapbook I obtained a few years ago.17:57

Mrs Pendleton: No!17:57

Atomant: I need to look at the site agina.lol17:57

Mike n Rachel in DC: 200 “movie” yards, AT. Maybe it’s like “dog years?”17:57

Godwinshelley2: I think I saw it on ABE and maybe mentioned it for sale to you17:57

Rush: it id FULL of oland-related clippings going way back.17:57

Rush: I am almoct certain that it was compiled by Edith oland herself.17:58

Mike n Rachel in DC: Fail on the rope trick, sweetie17:58

Mrs Pendleton: I thought I had been in all you rooms!17:58

Mike n Rachel in DC: Charlie sticks up for #2 daughter…17:58

Godwinshelley2: Wow Rush – Edit! How great17:59

Mrs Pendleton: He makes me think of Fred Mertz18:00

Rush: The address to access the scrapbook: 18:00


Rush: Yes, Mrs. P!18:00

Rush: I see the resemblance!18:00

Rush: “If you’re saying that I…”18:00

Mrs Pendleton: Sounds like something I would do18:01

Rush: BB gets to demonstrate the electrocution…18:02

Rush: Vega got out of that one…18:02

Mike n Rachel in DC: “Conduct your own experiment”18:02

Mike n Rachel in DC: BB will be a good conductor, I bet18:03

Rush: (Sizzle…zap…POW!)18:03

Matt1: No wonder BB is so jumpy all the time18:03

Rush: Yes, M/R!18:03

Atomant: Rush, thanks for the link. looks impressive. Going to spend some time looking at it later.18:03

Mike n Rachel in DC: I bet this is how the Bug Light got invented18:03

Rush: TY, AA.18:03

Rush: I WILL take time to go through it all!18:04

Frosty: Wow18:04

Rush: LOTS of material collected there!!!18:04

Rush: Material from 1916-1932.18:05

Mike n Rachel in DC: von Wegen?18:05

Rush: Again, I am practically certain it was collected byMrs. oland herself.18:05

Frosty: Not him18:05

Matt1: 18:05

Godwinshelley2: That would be so great – any biographies of Oland that may have seen the scrapbook while collecting info?18:06

Rush: BB is getting a sampling of what it will be like to work with CC in the coming years!18:06

Rush: I doubt it, GS.18:07

Rush: “No…that is, YES….What I mean is: I didn’t WANT to know him!”18:08

Rush: It rained…”18:08

Rush: That got him up!18:08

Godwinshelley2: Any family members who might remember it – or would ABE know where they got it from?18:08

pdclassicdvds: Zorro’s father was not crippled.18:08

Rush: Chan got him out of the chair.18:08

Rush: Yes, PCD!18:09

Rush: Manpower Commission (War Manpower Commission) – In January of 1942, as the United States shifted to a wartime economy, all employment services were federalized by executive order and transferred to the United States War Manpower Commission. The goal of the War Manpower Commission was to “stabilize” employment and bring about a full utilization of the labor force by “placing a man on a job where he will use his highest skill in furtherance of the war effort, and keeping him there.” With the end of the war in 1945, the War Manpower Commission was dissolved.18:18
