mda19083 has joined this room

Rush: MDA!

Matt1: Hello MDA!

mda19083: hello folks

Rush: WELCOME!!!

mda19083: warm one here in the Philadelphia environs

Rush: Yes?

Rush: Summer simmer…

mda19083: I am wearing my aloha shirt to stay cool

Rush: Perfect!

mda19083: when did hawaiian shirts become aloha shirts?

Matt1: In Hawaii they’re called “shirts”

mda19083 has left this room

mda19083 has joined this room

Rush: That’s what they are meant to express.

Rush: 🙂

mda19083: aha – makes sense to me now

Hawaii_Steve: MDA, a long time ago.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Aloha to MDA/shirt 🙂

Hawaii_Steve: Aloha shirts, not Hawaiian shirts.

mda19083: Steve – i’m old but i don’t remember the change in terminology

Rush: In about 5 minutes we can share the first “extra.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Are those the bright print shirts?

mda19083: Mike – that is what I believe

Hawaii_Steve: The Extras for tonight relate to the war effort on the homefront.

Mike n Rachel in DC: I’ve always been curious whether the designs originally had meanings…or designated families, etc.

mda19083: cued here with the extras

Rush: And, the first one vaguely brings to mind what the scientist, Harper, is working on in our movie tonight!

Hawaii_Steve: The locals have called the color tropical shirts ALOHA SHIRTS since the 1930s. People from the mainland call them Hawaiian shirt.

Rush: Who knows, perhaps it gave the writers an idea that they expanded on, if only from the title!

mda19083: Steve – that explains it as i am from the mainland

Rush: 🙂

Hawaii_Steve: There are several movies and TV episodes, produced in Hollywood & NY, that call the shirts Hawaiian shirts.

Rush: The aloha shirt (Hawaiian: palaka aloha[1]), also referred to as a Hawaiian shirt, is a style of dress shirt originating in Hawaii. They are collared and buttoned dress shirts, usually short-sleeved and made from printed fabric. They are often worn untucked, but can also be worn tucked into the waist of trousers. They are worn casually or as informal business attire in Hawaii.

“Aloha Friday”, a now-common tradition of celebrating the end of the workweek by wearing more casual attire on Fridays, initially grew out of an effort to promote aloha shirts.

Rush: (From Wikipedia)

mda19083: we should have an aloha monday some night in the chat room

Hawaii_Steve: Rush, exactly. Thank you.

Rush: Okay! Steve will you please introduce our first extra?

Mike n Rachel in DC: They’re great for hot, humid climates (like DC)…and fun to wear.

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Hawaii_Steve: There is one Chan film in which the musicians wear aloha shirts. Monogram. Rush, title?

Rush: “The Tree in a test Tube”


Rush: Sorry!

Matt1: Ready


Rush: I think that film might be “CC at the Olympics”

mda19083: ready as i’ll ever be

Rush: OR…”Dangerous Money’ comes to mind!

Mike n Rachel in DC: I’m going with Feathered Serpent 🙂

Rush: 🙂

Rush: (Applause…)

Matt1: Very nice

Mike n Rachel in DC: <clap clap>

Rush: This is the furst time I have seen this short.

Rush: I heard about it before, but have not seen it till now!

mda19083: nice

Rush: I think it is the only color footage of laural and Hardy!

Rush: We could see that Stan has red hair.

Rush: And, there will be a “Tree in a Test Tube” so to speak, in our movie tonight!

Mike n Rachel in DC: They look a little different than in the other films I remember…though they’re older here, too

Rush: They were both over 50 by this film.

Hawaii_Steve: “Tree” was shot on 16mm color film stock during a lunch break, 1942.

Rush: AH!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Very cool story. Probably the film came from trees too.

Rush: So they were working on one of their MGM films.

Rush: Not the best of movies in their output, and not their fault!

Rush: Anyway…

Rush: Next?

Matt1: Sure!

mda19083: good films come from good material

Rush: Ready everyone?

Mike n Rachel in DC: I still have mom’s ration book, coupons and “points”

Mike n Rachel in DC: yep

Hawaii_Steve: The movie theaters played their respective movies from morning, ending by 5:30 – 6:00 PM.

Los Dos Masqueros: Looks like an elderly Niles Crane

Mike n Rachel in DC: Buenos tardes, Masqueritos!

Dona: Hello A&F

Rich Maine: I want smores

Los Dos Masqueros: Igualmente, romanticos/as!!

Rush: And, besides the fog…steam!

Los Dos Masqueros: If it wasn’t for bad steam, we wouldn’t have no steam at all.

Rush: 340

Godwinshelley2: 4

Mike n Rachel in DC: 4:00

Los Dos Masqueros: They look like the barbers from deVille in that Cadillac commercial.


Rush: 🙂

Los Dos Masqueros: Grassy you know, Rush!!

Los Dos Masqueros: Keep in mind this is the best job all these guys could find.

Rush: Govenrment work, Ang- I mean, LDM!

Rich Maine: And more steam

Los Dos Masqueros: Uh-oh.

Mike n Rachel in DC: open sesame

Los Dos Masqueros: Forgot to remember to forget, you mean.

Rush: Monogram gimmickery.

Mike n Rachel in DC: sounds like a country song, LDM. “I forgot to remember to forget…”

Rich Maine: XYZZY

Rush: Sliding panels, electric eyes, remote-controlled gates…and MORE…as we will see!

Los Dos Masqueros: Wheels are turning in a hundred heads re sweeping this guy off the floor pronto.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Alexa, open the gate

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: Did they get all this stuff on Amazon?

Rush: Te earliest version of Amazon, perhaps!

Rich Maine: Hal open the pod door

hounder: lol@mike

Los Dos Masqueros: Is there an X-rated version of this?

Rush: Sears catalog.

Mike n Rachel in DC: LOL

Los Dos Masqueros: MnR: From Wish!!

Rush: Butler is suspicious…and rightly so!

Rush: They needed a TV camera!

Rush: But, that is NEXT WEEK!

Los Dos Masqueros: Somebody’s gonna have to point out the mastermind. Tie here for last place, huh?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Creepy cop

Rush: Yes.

hounder: why wear a gas mask if you’re gonna take it off?

Rush: It can be off for short periods.

Matt1: BB!

Los Dos Masqueros: hounder, this guy is/was definitely surfing the edge.

Matt1: Eddie!

Los Dos Masqueros: New son rises!!!

Rush: “My personality always count in ‘end’.”

hounder: please call me edward

Rich Maine: Call me Edward

Rush: Eddie is Edwin Luke.

Mike n Rachel in DC: But I thought you were Rich. 🙂

Rich Maine: It’s the dummy talking

Los Dos Masqueros: Anybody remember the FIRST “Thin Man” movie? Son Eddy reminds me of the poindexter young man who tried to dupe Nick & Nora.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oh, the creepy younf guy? Yes, he does.

Mike n Rachel in DC: *young*

Los Dos Masqueros: Lucky for everybody Chan not driving.

Godwinshelley2: The brother who keeps talking about complexes?

Rush: Regarding an earlier message, Benson Fong (Tommy) was really busy with films other than Chan movies in 1944!

Rush: He may have been working on “30 seconds Over Tokyo” when this one was filmed.

Rich Maine: Sheriff Mack!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Aha…thanks. So it was a practical substitution.

Rush: YES!

Rush: A favorite of mine in the series!

Los Dos Masqueros: YES, GS!!! Yes indeed! That’s a great film, to me; it begged for another. The supporting characters in that one were all strong, too.

Rich Maine: What else was sheriff in?

Rush: This is his only Chan appearance.

Godwinshelley2: Reno

Los Dos Masqueros: PAINFUL nausea.

Rich Maine: Ah yes Reno!

Rush: “Tombstone” Fletcher…

mda19083: horse feathers

Rush: Slim Summerville.

Los Dos Masqueros: Sheriff could be a combo of John Goodman’s character in The Big Lebowski, and Breaking Bad’s Walter White.

Rich Maine: STELLA!

Rush: Or…vice-versa?

Rush: “Giggles”

Rush: By the way…did I miss Matt’s (tin Can)?

Rich Maine: No, no dB yet

Rush: Harper.

Rich Maine: He is missing now

Los Dos Masqueros: Mr.Meeker seems a combo of Hannibal Lecter, Jack Nicholson and, of all people, Frasier Crane.


Matt1: Sorry!

Rush: That’s okay!

Mike n Rachel in DC: a new Monogram touch…fog window

Rush: It was not made obvious!

Los Dos Masqueros: What’s th etime? We have 19:00.

Mike n Rachel in DC: 19:20 here

Rush: Back in room A 324…

Rush: No tip for HIM!

Rush: Wise words from BB.

Los Dos Masqueros: Calllllllll forrrrrrrrrr annnnnother bellboy! Calllllll forrrr….

Rush: I place this on on Long Island, close to NYC.

hounder: being how as i’m unacustomed to murder….

Rush: Chan noted he “has to be in washington tomorrow.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Short train ride…

Rush: Yes.

Los Dos Masqueros: hounder: we liked that line too!

Rush: And Sheriff Mack would be the county sheriff.

Los Dos Masqueros: (22:00)?

Rush: Near to the coast.

Rush: 22:25

Rush: 22:45

Los Dos Masqueros: Kid needs a dope-slap.

Rush: By this time, BB is officially a part of Chan’s group!

Mike n Rachel in DC: “produce nothing but silence”

Mike n Rachel in DC: great parenting line

Rich Maine: Punch and Judy show

Los Dos Masqueros: I like the photo on the wall behind CC!

Los Dos Masqueros: Wanna bet?

Rush: Missed the photo.

Rich Maine: Was the assistant in reefer madness?

mda19083: he is meeker than most

Rush: “Just one happy family with murderer in center.”

Los Dos Masqueros: mda:     

Los Dos Masqueros: Rich, he’s mad now.

Rich Maine: I think he flipped

Los Dos Masqueros: He’s paid to forget.

Rush: yes.

Los Dos Masqueros: And HANDS of strength, too.

Rich Maine: Looks like woman…strong like man!

Rush: To the coroner’s..

Los Dos Masqueros: Well, SHET MY MOUF!

Rush: 🙂

hounder: i like tombstone’s quips

Dona: I like him too

Rush: “…it’s what they DON’T know that’ll kill you.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: He’s a very likable character

Rush: Agreed.

Rich Maine: A tombstone and BB combo….priceless

Dona: That would be Rick

Dona: Rich

Rush: Sheriff…you are not exactly a “lady killer” yourself!

Rush: (knock, knock, knock…)

Rush: “Over-sized decision with under-sized brain.”

Los Dos Masqueros: Scholars / archivists here: is Edwin Luke here a relation of Keye?

Rush: YES!

Rush: His actual brother!

Los Dos Masqueros: I’d be looking to sell the motorcycle first off.

Rich Maine: Wow rush! Older?

Rush: We “met” him in that Kaye Luke extra some weeks ago!

Rush: (KEYE)

Rush: No…not thinking od DANNY!

Los Dos Masqueros: Tin can ready?

Rush: Awaiting verification.

mda19083: cue the can

Los Dos Masqueros: How Little We Know, when we miss the Extras!!

Rush: Official…

Los Dos Masqueros: Sheriff here’s a real brainstormer.

Rush: Matt..?


Mike n Rachel in DC: silent can tonight

Rush: Sorry! So many in this one, I went ahead!

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: another technological marvel

hounder: he girls are traveling in a pack

Los Dos Masqueros: GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!!

PaulM has left this room

Rush: I missed Paul’s arrival earlier….

Mike n Rachel in DC: Little known fact: The wartime silent can is plastic, made from…wait for it…trees

Los Dos Masqueros: George Burns used to do the Peabody.

mda19083: stick out your can . . . here comes the garbage man

Rush: 🙂

Los Dos Masqueros: Sullen group o’ suspects.

Rush: Yes they are.

Los Dos Masqueros: Ain’t that a kick in the head?

Rush: Michael strong looks like a dark cloud hovers over him!

Los Dos Masqueros: Miss Harper’s bizarre.

Rush: Another gimmick coming up here…

mda19083: good song – Dean Martin did a number on that one

Rush: LDM: 🙂

Rush: Fingerprints?

mda19083: he was my boyfriend

Los Dos Masqueros: mda: YES!

mda19083: LDM rocks!

Rush: “Murder know no law of relativity.”

Rush: Dictaphone.

Rush: early home/business recording device.

Los Dos Masqueros: Play it backward, guys!!

Rich Maine: Pail is dead

Rich Maine: Paul

Rush: “Turn me on, dead man…”

Los Dos Masqueros: An early Lava Light.

Rush: 🙂

hounder: seems to me when folk asked me to run for sherrif i missed an excellant chance to keep my mouth shut

Los Dos Masqueros: Poor guys couldn’t dodge dart.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Couldn’t afford one either

Rush: Another projectile…

Los Dos Masqueros: Nobody mentions what government.

Rush: THE government.

Los Dos Masqueros: THWACK!

Rush: 🙂

Rich Maine: Wake up Edward

Matt1: zzzzzzzzzzzz

hounder: luminous footprints by wall

Mike n Rachel in DC: Chan has dart-proof clothing

Rush: The suit lapel was thick enough to stop the dart.

mda19083: Snow White never dated any of the seven dwarves – the were all miners

Rush: 🙂


hounder: pajamas loud enough without you make extra noise

Los Dos Masqueros: mda:     

Rush: Yes!

Rush: Good quote!

mda19083: oh no – not the secret panel!

Los Dos Masqueros: Nobody can shut off the gas?

Rush: “If silence is golden…you are BANKRUPT.”

Los Dos Masqueros: mda: Panel includes Bennett Cerf, Dorothy Kilgallen & Steve Allen!

Los Dos Masqueros: And Peggy Cass!

Rush: I had a teacher in Jr. High who would tell students: “Silence is golden, shut up and get rich!”

mda19083: what about arlene francis?

Dona: That’s a good one Rush

Dona: I need to remember that


Rich Maine: Kilgallen was murdered

mda19083: what a looker!

Rush: Arlene Francis.

Los Dos Masqueros: Rush, i’ll steal that quip!

Rush: Please use it!

mda19083: get the dictaphone

Rush: Quick!

Godwinshelley2: Was she on I’ve Got a Secret?

Mike n Rachel in DC: nice that they put an outlet in the safe

Rush: On some quiz show for sure.

Los Dos Masqueros: Rich, you are quite right. I’m just old enough to barely remember Miss Kilgallen, and she was quite celebrated in serious circles. She was definitely offed. This weekend, by the way, was the 60th anni of Marilyn’s suspicious exit.

Rich Maine: She was investigating mob

Rush: That’s right, LDM!

Rich Maine: Several you tube on her.

mda19083: she is sleeping with the fishes now


Rush: Joe Dimaggio had thoughts on her demise…

Rich Maine: Poor Stella

Rush: Drag her out of there!

Rush: The door might close!

Los Dos Masqueros: Lemme guess: they SAVE HER. Cuz women weren’t allowed, under Code, to get x’d; right?

Rush: Chan is definitely “no-nonsense”!

Mike n Rachel in DC: No. Tin for cans was rationed and they’ve already used their tin can ration for this film…

Rush: I hope Cc has memorized the combo!

Los Dos Masqueros: Did it not occur to anybody in the War Department that TETRAGENE might serve—or even good ol’ wartime Mimeograph Fluid?

Rush: yes, Mike!

mda19083: LDM – even TETRAGENE was rationed

Los Dos Masqueros: “That horrible room where the desk is”: Think how the DESK feels.

Rush: yes, MDA!

Rich Maine: Desk was ikea

Los Dos Masqueros: She just got here from a non-pony country.

Rush: “open wide…”

Los Dos Masqueros: Those faces COULD freeze a clock.

Matt1: <tin can>


Mike n Rachel in DC: new ration book 🙂

Rush: Michael Strong got it in the nose!

mda19083: life masks – they should be called death masks

Rush: Once the victim is deceased, yes.

Los Dos Masqueros: ‘EARS’ proof!!

Rich Maine: Spock ears

Rush: 🙂

Los Dos Masqueros: Couldn’t they at least put a toddler-gate on the gas room?

Rush: ready?

Matt1: <tin can>

Los Dos Masqueros: THWONK!

Mike n Rachel in DC: *thud*


Rush: Call the coroner…again….

Los Dos Masqueros: Won’t be down for breakfast.

Rich Maine: Unmask him!

Rush: He did!

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: Meeker isn’t ‘ear

Rush: “I know nothing!”

Rush: Mike: 🙂

Los Dos Masqueros: Mrs. Sgt. Schultz

Rush: Matt…

mda19083: LDM – yes!

Los Dos Masqueros: Anybody know Col.Klink was in a Perry Mason episode in its first season?


Rush: That makes it five.

Rich Maine: Everyone was on perry Mason

Los Dos Masqueros: Col.Klink is real creepy, & gets knocked off.

Rush: yes, Rich!

Rich Maine: Even Dick clark

Los Dos Masqueros: Edwin goes back to China to fight in Revolution now ongoing.
