Mike n Rachel in DC: Looks like a future Chan offspring for sure.16:44

Len Freeman: Yup16:44

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sort of a Buddhist theme to these movies…characters being reincarnated into other lives…16:45

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hi CD. Just in time for the cliffhanger!16:55

Godwinshelley-1: We’re about 5 minutes from the end of the extra16:55

Len Freeman: Nakura (Victoria Horne) had an interesting career as a character actor… married to Jack Oakie, one of her big roles was in Harvey with Jimmy Stewart16:55

Matt1: Better call X-1016:58

Godwinshelley-1: I don’t think so – but I don’t have the audio up16:58

Mike n Rachel in DC: He was in a Kraut uniform earlier, but that may have been a ruse.16:59

Godwinshelley-1: Fighting in a running car16:59

Mike n Rachel in DC: This doesn’t look like it could end well.16:59

Godwinshelley-1: Not the best idea16:59

Godwinshelley-1: Over the edge – oh no!!!17:00

Matt1: The music17:00

Godwinshelley-1: How will they survive??17:00

Matt1: Now THAT’s a cliffhanger!17:00

Matt1: THE END!17:00

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yeah…except they didn’t hang on the cliff…17:00

Godwinshelley-1: Till Next week17:00

Matt1: Cliff hang-over?17:00

Godwinshelley-1: I need to find and cue the feature17:00

Mike n Rachel in DC: Maybe we’ll find X9 hanging onto a tree branch or something…miraculous escape and all…17:01

Matt1: or we’ll be watching SA X-10 next week?17:01

Cdirus: Nah, he jumped out before it hit the cliff.17:02

Len Freeman: The online YouTube version of tonight’s feature is pretty foggy… better to use your own if you have the disk.17:02

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes. Now we know what happened to X 1-8…17:02

Matt1: 17:02

Mike n Rachel in DC: They clearly failed the “jumping from a moving car as it goes over the cliff” class at the Academy.17:03

Louise: This week I backed up the Chan site for Rush. It had 4,000 images and 700 pages!17:03

libraryjim: as do educators17:05

Mike n Rachel in DC: Especially when writing books, etc.17:06

Louise: Yes Matt. Next I am discussing with Rush whether to update the design of the site. It could take many forms. Her is one quickie version:

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hello AA and Mrs P17:09

Matt1: FIVE minutes until showtime! 17:10

Cdirus: Hi AA17:10

Mrs Pendleton: Hi!17:10

Cdirus: Hi Mrs. P.17:10

Matt1: Hello AA & MrsP!17:10

Len Freeman→Louise: OK.. cued here17:10

Matt1: CUE Up to Opening Title17:10


Godwinshelley-1: there were only so many Nazis you could fight week after week17:10

Atomant: This one might be a little clearer17:10

Louise: LJ: same thought here17:10

Len Freeman: The thirties were pretty deeply into ghost stuff17:11

Godwinshelley-1: With all the fallen soldiers17:11

Len Freeman: there’s a theory that ghost interest rises in times of war, and right after, because of all the deaths17:11

Cdirus: Interesting17:11

Matt1: FOUR minutes to go!17:11

Louise: Spiritualism was huge at the end of the 19th century. But why it persisted into these decades I don’t know.17:11

Mrs Pendleton: The supernatural was a huge theme during that timeframe17:12

Len Freeman: WWI and WWII17:12

Godwinshelley-1: There is also a theory about the horrors of war being reflected in the horror films as well17:12

libraryjim: Might make an interesting dissertation for a film student17:12

Len Freeman: both make sense17:12

Mike n Rachel in DC: …and it has cool special effects possibilities for films…17:12

Louise: I suspect, LJ, it has been written.17:12

Godwinshelley-1: I picked up a book on the Horror Film Ban by Britian during this period17:12

Matt1: THREE minutes to go!17:12

libraryjim: cop #2 saw the secret. 17:48

Rush: If you look carefully, you catch a glimpse of the rod controlling the handkerchief.17:48

Mike n Rachel in DC: The stick with the white rag attached?17:48

Louise: And…the lights17:49

Mike n Rachel in DC: In a trance?17:49

Mike n Rachel in DC: Don’t laugh or you’ll be standing behind the sofa again…17:56

Rush: “You can keep secret?….So can I.”17:56

Rush: Down the easy way…17:56

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is this the trick elevator scene?17:57

Mike n Rachel in DC: Doesn’t seem familiar…17:57

libraryjim: funny, I hadn’t remembered seeing this before — until this scene.17:57
