Rush: Well, our Chat Room has nice virtual air conditioning, at least!

Cdirus: Didn’t think one could get all hot and sweaty just picking tomatoes

Rush: And, as for being tired, our film is guaranteed to give a burst of energy!

pdclassicdvds: His name is Brett in the movie not Trent. I knew it sounded similar

Len Freeman: We’re in the balmy 70s here in MInnesota

Cdirus: That’s good cause ours at work is broken again. It was sounding like a helicopter on the roof and vibrating the whole building

Rush: Brett, alias Brott…

Atomant: You might take alook at this upload from archive movies. The sound seems synced. Sorry if I am causing trouble

Rush: Etc…

pdclassicdvds: Yes you got it.

Rush: Noted, AA1

Cdirus: Len, your lucky. upper 80’s and very humid here. And dry, we haven’t had more than an inch of rain in the past few weeks

Rush: And…no trouble caused!

Atomant: 🙂

Matt1: Went to bed the other night and it was 89!

Len Freeman: Been a strange summer for us… very wet, so farmers having trouble with crops, but also mild.

Len Freeman: WE’ve actually had to turn off the AC

Atomant: Wow

Cdirus: Our farmers couldn’t plant in the spring casuse it was too wet, then they got the crops in and it dried up in our area

Rush: Yes, Len?

Louise has joined this room

Rush: CD, I remember hearing something about that situation back when the late rains were hitting.

Matt1: Our a/c runs year round….Rare we have heat on though, perhaps 4-7 days a year to get chill out

Len Freeman: cued here

Rush: And the reference to “Boris Karloff” with the ham actor in this one called “Horace Karlos.”

Louise: I like all the spooky ones, seances and all

Rush: yes, Len.

Cdirus: It’s always better when it rains. no fun dragging 100 ft of garden hose in the hot sun

Nothere: So Louise care to meet at midnight? 🙂

Nothere: He needed a friend.

Len Freeman: He appeared in almost every B western of the 1940s

Matt1: Such a pleasant person

Rush: Yes…VERY…

Rush: Tonight, we will get a glimpse of what early TV productions were like.

Rush: When people watched test patterns for fun!

Atomant: Is that MR. Pendleton ?

Len Freeman: VERY stiff….\

Nothere: Because the Federal Government is in the 40’s So were helpful. If this was 70’s federal goveremnt it would be a sinister plot.

Rush: Horace Karlos.

Louise: Yes Rush, the early TV stuff is interesting

Atomant: From CC murder cruise?

Rush: (Clunk!)

Nothere: You got to wonder about that show. A 40’s program where the Mad Monster is the star? Who does he think he is Fu Manchu?

Matt1: Shoe print in only one spot?

Louise: Notice the ashtrays everywhere

Rush: Or, maybe the slightly “miffed” monster?

Nothere: Only so much blood to come off Matt.

Rush: Teletype…

Nothere: Tonight at ten The Miffed Monster. Yeah that works.

Louise: “Fool Chan” could be the name of any of the kids!

Rush: Clue! The person at the other end is an expert typist!

Len Freeman: I Stanford Jolley.. a favorite

Nothere: You can fool a Chan but you can’t fool the Chan pool.

Rush: NT: 🙂

Rush: “A boy with his Dog” pen set on the desk.

Rush: Interesting painting on the wall.

Louise: Ben Carter!!!

Rush: Some Chan ZINGERS tonight!

Rush: Yes! Ben Carter!

Rush: “Incomplete Talk”!

Rush: Great stuff!

Louise: It is such a funny interlude

Rush: “Comment t’allez vous!”

Len Freeman: great routine

Rush: I LOVE that routine, Len!

Rush: Never gets old for me!

MIke in DC: “could not stand solitary confinement

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Nothere: So he still over at…Nah he moved from there after that…They ever find her, I’d want to know what happened to her…Oh they found that and gave it to.

Rush: “Glope”

Rush: She might have made a great Wicked Witch of the West in “The Wizard of Oz.”

Len Freeman: Ahhhh,… The Shadow knows……

Atomant: Ran across this the other night..BB and Nipsy doing a similar routine.

pdclassicdvds: It was the MAD MONSTER

Rush: That must have been Horace Karlos wearing the mask…

Louise: Second time BB mentions zombies in these movies

Rush: yes…it was…

Rush: Yes, Louise.

Rush: (Zappppp)

pdclassicdvds: He was one of the stars of King of the Zombies. Another classic!


Rush: Great movie connections, everyone!

Louise: second team assistants…wonder why he keeps emphasizing that

Rush: Your combined knowledge is priceless! TYSM!

Louise: BB is great in King of the Zombies

Louise: we definitely know the old movies

Len Freeman: Brett Morrison used to wear a cape etc. when he played the Shadow on the radio

Rush: I have not seen that film, Louise.

Rush: Need to add it to my growing list!

Rush: Don’t touch!

Rush: oo late!

Matt1: Shocking!

Nothere: Alas they make a thousand movies a year at least, and I can only watch so fast.

Rush: ZAP!

Louise: Oh Rush, you will enjoy it

Rush: I look forward to seeing it, Louise!

pdclassicdvds: Here comes some blackmail.

Rush: Yes.

Rush: That can be a deadly game.

Louise: the UFO hat

Len Freeman: Ah///the #MEtoo movement arrives…

pdclassicdvds: I love that hat. LOL

Rush: Yes…some hat!

pdclassicdvds: Who the hell has private matches???

MIke in DC: Private matches?

Rush: Actually, a return to hats might be a very practical idea, to lessen UV contact.

MIke in DC: I use them to light my private candles

Rush: Teletype…

pdclassicdvds: That funny MIke.

Louise: DING! Your answer is ready.

MIke in DC: I.D.I.O.T.

Cdirus: Rush, I bought a Tilly hat almost two years ago, and I wear it all the time.

Rush: Mike, missed your comment…YES!

Nothere: Much to their detremnt

Nothere: detrement?

pdclassicdvds: I need a job like that.

Rush: Yes…and NO…PD.

Rush: The price of mistakes is a bit steep!

Nothere: You need to be in a criminal conspiracy with a boss who will kill you if you fail them PD?

pdclassicdvds: Not the criminal part only answering phone in an empty room. LOL

Rush: Rolf Brott…Ralph Brett…

Louise: Roff Roff!

Nothere: Oh you want to be a call center employee.

Rush: 🙂

PaulM: somebody let the dog out

MIke in DC: Ralph Brought

Louise: Exactly Paul

pdclassicdvds: He should wear glasses too so we won’t recognize him like Superman. LOL

Nothere: Says you Paul. I think it’s a shaggy dog story.

MIke in DC: PD, I think you have to be in India to get that kind of gig

Rush: DV, are you with us in the film?

PaulM: Ruh Roh

Louise: So the murdere is walking around with one show?

Louise: shoe

Rush: Now…snowstorm effect!

Rush: I agree, Louise!

Rush: “Entertainment”!

Len Freeman: In the Wizard of OZ they used asbestos for the snow effect…hope they didn’t have the same crew here.

Rush: Balance of humor and mystery.

Rush: Really, Len?

pdclassicdvds: Looking for a murderer and has no gun drawn

Len Freeman: Apparently…

Rush: I wonder how many people suffer ill effects years later?

Len Freeman: heard this just the other day

Rush: (suffered)

Louise: This is such a goofy scene

Len Freeman: it was the answer to a question on an NPR program about what scene they couldn’t shoot today if they reshot the film


MIke in DC: Mesothilioma was rampant among the munchkins I hear

Rush: Yes, Len! That would NOT happen today!

danventure: Real snow job for Brett

Len Freeman: Well it was the munchkins who got snowed on.

Rush: TYSM, Matt…

Matt1: He got snowed in

Atomant: Funny Dan

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Mr. Cooper with a couple of aliases…

Rush: “Do your Churchill…”

Nothere: That s odd. I sent a message, but got a message saying it couldn’t be sent because it’s like a flood. That happen to anyone else?

pdclassicdvds: Must not be a lot of jobs for that?

MIke in DC: H.e.r.e. I. A.m.

Rush: By the way, if anyone here is not yet on our weekly email notification list and you wish to be, please email to:

Rush: “Murder also outrage.”

Nothere: Anyway this is where I leave you. Be sure to turn your radio dial to Muwhahah until I am not here again.

Godwinshelley2: Well that might explain it

Godwinshelley2: I’ll check there later

Rush: NOT the Bulletin Board…sorry…

Nothere has left this room

danventure: Maybe now I’ll remember every week…

Rush: I also sent you a copy of the text without the “extras” seperately.

Rush: “So many fish at fish market, even flower smell same.”

Godwinshelley2: Rush I don’t think I got a second/extra email

Rush: “The Dance of the Spirit.”

Rush: Early TV…
