Rush: welcome!

mda19083: hello hounder rush and steve

Alcatraz_Steve: Aloha MDA.

Rush: And, how are YOU tonight, MDA?

mda19083: Steve – you are quite chipper for being in the slammer

Rush: Indeed!

mda19083: all things good here on the East coast

Rush: One of the working titles for the film tonight was “Charlie Chan in Alcatraz.”

Alcatraz_Steve: I’m a model prisoner today.

Rush: or would that have been “at” Alcatraz!

mda19083: no rattling the tin cup on the bars

Rush: Yes, Steve!

Alcatraz_Steve: AT – I hope.

Alcatraz_Steve: Rush, do we see stock footage of Alcatraz in this film?

Rush: Cellmates with Foggy and Punchy?

mda19083: have never made it to Alcatraz – is it a worthwhile trip?

Rush: Actually the outside stock footage is of San Quentin State Prison.

mda19083: assuming I am a tourist

Rush: San Quentin was inland and not on the “Rock”!

mda19083: and the a resident

mda19083: and not as a resident

Alcatraz_Steve: “You dirty rat …” Ops, I mean, as a tourist I visited Alcatraz many years ago.

Rush: I have never seen it in person, MDA, but I would see it if I had the opportunity.

Alcatraz_Steve: San Quentin State was still in operation at the time this film was made, I assume.

mda19083: rush – did you enjoy your recent trip?

Rush: There is an interesting story of two prisoners who may have actually survived an escape attempt back in 1962 (I believe).

Rush: Well, eveveryone…

Rush: Should we start the extras for this week?

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: She looks like Robert McNamara.

Rush: Social worker?

Rich Maine: Social worker! Wow

Hawaii_Steve: Chan has bite to his words.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Rush: That means she talks while she’s supposed to be working. At salt mine.,

Rush: That’s what I was thinking, Rich!

Hawaii_Steve: Mantan has some funny bits.

Rich Maine: She is so caring…

Rush: Yes, steve!

mda19083: everybody always makes fun of us accountants

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Most of her clothes were curtains. It was curtains for her when she went down that Social Services path. The runway to perdition. With refreshments.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Keep your friends close and your malfeasant security contractors closer.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: She always depended on the kindness of strangers.

Rush: Seems so, Angel…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Seems like this house had many “social workers”…

Rich Maine: She was a fan dancer

Rush: yes, Mike!

Hawaii_Steve: I like the colorized version. It brings life to the scenes.

Rush: And, yes, seemingly so, Rich!

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Rush, you ARE a shrewd judge of character. We’ll shun her starting after the weekend.

Rush: There was another that we will see wirh Roland Winters as CC.

Mike n Rachel in DC: how about rubbing the fake fingerprint on your nose to get the oil?

Rush: 🙂

Rush: That could work!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Woodwind players who have to slide their fingers across keys will rub their nose to get their finger oily. It works great.

Rich Maine: Amazing fact Mike

hounder 2: cool trivia m n r

Rush: Dona, the other faked fingerprint movie was “The Shanghai Chest.”

Rush: I like the Film Noir angle.

Alcatraz_Steve: I hope that you enjoy them.

Rush: I think everyone will.

Alcatraz_Steve: Correct me if I am wrong, moving forward, Chan is a private investigator now. Right?

Rush: How is you mother tonight, hounder?

Alcatraz_Steve: It’s the next Chan film that really has elements of Film Noir.

Rush: He’s still working for the government.

Rush: But, of course, takes on these special cases!

Rush: Like tonight.

mda19083 has joined this room

hounder 2: so so. her legs are weaker and today she wanted me to help her find a job. i think she was bored even after we went out for a ride.

Rush: MDA!

Rush: welcome!

mda19083: Hello my fellow Chan groupies

hounder 2: hi mda

Rush: Well, Hounder, I know that your love and devotion will not go for naught.

mda19083: hello hounder rush and steve

Alcatraz_Steve: Aloha MDA.

Rush: And, how are YOU tonight, MDA?

mda19083: Steve – you are quite chipper for being in the slammer

Rush: Indeed!

mda19083: all things good here on the East coast

Rush: One of the working titles for the film tonight was “Charlie Chan in Alcatraz.”

Alcatraz_Steve: I’m a model prisoner today.

Rush: or would that have been “at” Alcatraz!

mda19083: no rattling the tin cup on the bars

Rush: Yes, Steve!

Alcatraz_Steve: AT – I hope.

Alcatraz_Steve: Rush, do we see stock footage of Alcatraz in this film?

Rush: Cellmates with Foggy and Punchy?

mda19083: have never made it to Alcatraz – is it a worthwhile trip?

Rush: Actually the outside stock footage is of San Quentin State Prison.

mda19083: assuming I am a tourist

Rush: San Quentin was inland and not on the “Rock”!

mda19083: and the a resident

mda19083: and not as a resident

Alcatraz_Steve: “You dirty rat …” Ops, I mean, as a tourist I visited Alcatraz many years ago.

Rush: I have never seen it in person, MDA, but I would see it if I had the opportunity.

Alcatraz_Steve: San Quentin State was still in operation at the time this film was made, I assume.

mda19083: rush – did you enjoy your recent trip?

Rush: There is an interesting story of two prisoners who may have actually survived an escape attempt back in 1962 (I believe).

Rush: Well, eveveryone…

Rush: Should we start the extras for this week?

mda19083: I’m game

Rush: Dead eight years.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: It’s true July & August too.

Rich Maine: Does he.merit a can?

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: “Ugly trait”? Look in the mirror, Toots.

Rush: 🙂

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: She looks like Robert McNamara.

Rush: Social worker?

Rich Maine: Social worker! Wow

Hawaii_Steve: Chan has bite to his words.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Rush: That means she talks while she’s supposed to be working. At salt mine.,

Rush: That’s what I was thinking, Rich!

Hawaii_Steve: Mantan has some funny bits.

Rich Maine: She is so caring…

Rush: Yes, steve!

Rush: I see you have either escaped or were pardoned, steve!

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: She should have gone over that typewriter with BlecheBit and a couple hammers.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Everybody was typing then.

Dona: Yes Angel

Rush: Yes. or…as in my case…TRYING to type!

Rush: Another old friend!

Rush: Milton parsons.

mda19083: everybody always makes fun of us accountants

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Most of her clothes were curtains. It was curtains for her when she went down that Social Services path. The runway to perdition. With refreshments.

Godwinshelley2: Why accounting is a noble profession – the word COUNT is in the name

Rich Maine: Love the cc closeup

Rush: Maybe, but accountants laugh all the way to the proverbial bank!

mda19083: thanks for the support Rush

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Keep your friends close and your malfeasant security contractors closer.

Rush: MDA: :)!

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: She always depended on the kindness of strangers.

Rush: Seems so, Angel…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Seems like this house had many “social workers”…

Rich Maine: She was a fan dancer

Rush: yes, Mike!

Hawaii_Steve: I like the colorized version. It brings life to the scenes.

Rush: And, yes, seemingly so, Rich!

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Rush, you ARE a shrewd judge of character. We’ll shun her starting after the weekend.

Rush: Yes, Angel?

Rush: That gentleman IS tall, as hinted earlier!

mda19083: look out

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: AFTER the weekend. And this is a 3-day-er coming up. Shun starting Tuesday. At 8AM.

hounder 2: boom

Rush: Actual shot hit the window.

Rush: Probably a low caliber bullett.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Looks like Berlin.

Mike n Rachel in DC: sounds like gladiator music

Rush: Shots of San Quentin Prison.

Rush: Complete with “prison music.”

Rush: Russell Hicks.

Rush: FDR picture on the wall.

Rush: “Number 8251.”

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: 8251. Will play that number.

Rush: AH!

Mike n Rachel in DC: here we go

Rush: Here we go!

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: J.P. DOUBLETALKER!!

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Here we go!

Rush: Incomplete talk is on the way!

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: “Can’t recap them wrinkles”

Rush: “They can’t re-cap the face.”

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: You can still get it in Berlin. And Bolivia.

Rush: yes, Angel.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Bolivia DeHaviland, that is.

Rich Maine: Oh angel!

Rush: His brother, Ben.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: “A substantive discussion”, the gummint flacks would call that.

Rush: “Accidents can happen if planned that way.”

Rush: “Nothing is impossible.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Last case with forged fingerprints also had Russell Hicks in the cast!

Rush: TRUE!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hm…another quiz question…

Rush: Yes!

hounder 2: they’d cause less trouble if left in there

Rush: “Name the CC cases with forged fingerprints.”

Rich Maine: Mr froggy

Rush: Punchy has deep respect for Charlie Chan!

Dona: I only remember this one

Hawaii_Steve: Long tracking shot in a Monogram.

Rush: AH! yes, steve!

Rush: There was another that we will see wirh Roland Winters as CC.

Mike n Rachel in DC: how about rubbing the fake fingerprint on your nose to get the oil?

Rush: 🙂

Rush: That could work!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Woodwind players who have to slide their fingers across keys will rub their nose to get their finger oily. It works great.

Rich Maine: Amazing fact Mike

hounder 2: cool trivia m n r

Rush: Dona, the other faked fingerprint movie was “The Shanghai Chest.”

Rush: Interesting, Mike!

Rush: One of those time-proven techniques!

Rush: I agree!

Dona: Thank you Rush.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: Ah, the MISOGYNY!

Rush: Only a guy could be that mean!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rachel is not feeling so “sweet and gentile” after that remark.

AngelRattler+FoxSnake: BB is wise as Confusion.

Rush: Hello, Rachel….and SORRY!

Rush: 🙂

hounder 2: background stands out more in color

Rush: AH!

Rush: Funny improvs here!
