Matt1 has joined this room

Rush: Hello, Matt!

Matt1: Hello Rush!

Rush: How are you this evening?

Matt1: Very good, thnx….u?

Rush: Doing well, but Marie’s come down with something…hopefully not…You-Know-What.

Rush: Awaiting test results.

Matt1: She’s had the shot, no?

Rush: Yes.

Matt1: We keep a self test at home, just in case

Rush: Ah!

Zoe has joined this room

Rush: Hello, Zoe!

Rush: WELCOME!!!

Zoe: hello

Matt1: I hope it’s just a bug and she is feeling better soon

Matt1: Hello Zoe!

Rush: Yes…could be the old fashioned flu?

Matt1: Yes!

Matt1: With schools starting up, colds are usually frequent early on, I hear

Rush: Yes. Had one of those the first week!

Rush: Could’ve also been allergy related.

Matt1: I keep saying we’re over sterilized and when we go back to a “norm”, many people will catch things early on

Rush: She has no chest congestion.

Rush: I agree, Matt.

Matt1: Hoping for allergies!

Rush: I think we see that happening, actually.

Matt1: Yes

Rush: On another note…I am trying to see how WordPress works as a possibility for rebuilding this site.

Rush: My feeble brain is not attuned to compex Wed design!

Matt1: Ah, it’s an established site!

DanVenture has joined this room

Rush: Web

Rush: Hello, DV!

Matt1: Hello Dan!

Rush: Good evening to you!

DanVenture: Hurrah! I remembered and on time.

Matt1: Can you incorporate a chatroom there?

Rush: Yes, matt. Louise recommended it. it looks good, but I need to get my hands dirty, if you know what I mean!

DanVenture: Yes, Web design and WordPress can be a challenge.

Matt1: Meams, lots of work

Rush: Especially for me!

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Work is okay…as long as I know how to DO the work!

Matt1: lol, yes

DanVenture: And how did I NOT know it’s the 20th anniversary?!

DanVenture: Did I miss the party?

Rush: Unfortunately, all will need to be recreated from scratch!

Matt1: Yikes!

Rush: It’s ongoing, DV!

Rush: Yes.

mda19083: hello all

Matt1: We’ll be breaking out the virtual beverage cart at some point, Dan!

Matt1: Hello MDA!

Rush: So, this one will stay available, and the new one will be modest as it grows.

Rush: Thats all I can figure.

Rush: WELCOME, MDA!

mda19083: just got back from the library to pick up my copy of Shadows Over Chinatown for tonight’s viewing

Matt1: I wish I could help, but I’m afraid I’d do more harm than good

Rush: Good idea, MDA!

Rush: As this one is not available via the Internet.

Rush: I feel the same about ME, Matt!

Rush: I opened a test at WordPress and titled it “Charlie Chan Family.” I can get chatliechan.family as a domain.

Rush: (charlie)

mda19083: matt – are there adult beverages on the virtual beverage cart?

Matt1: It’s a bottomless cart of spirits,!

Rush: Anything one can imagine, MDA…from tea to “tiger Tea.”

mda19083: hello AL and FF

Rush: Ah Sing will take that boat to China.

mda19083: someone is making a quick getaway

mda19083: slow boat?

Rush: Probably!

Rush: Chan helps Ah Sing…a huge favor.

angel landini & foxx furr: We being in Boston, and our DVD set (supplied by Len Freeman, btw) being in NC, we are Chanblind tonight. We will be “sitting in”, following Comments, but in what the old sports arenas called Obstructed Seats.

Rush: The train they are meeting would be at Truckee.

Rush: Interstingly, Chan would be going through this town on the bus tonight as he and BB and Jimmy are on the bus to San francisco!

mda19083: AL FF – we can do a play by play for you

Rush: Truckee, CA…near to Lake Tahoe.

angel landini & foxx furr: PbyP (somehow i don’t think that moniker will get past the ad agency without some milling & trimming) appreciated!

Rush: Faux Chinese….

mda19083: what did he say?

mda19083: oh no – louie romano

Rush: Yes!

Rush: Chan driving the flivver…

Dona: got it thank you all

Godwinshelley2: Why would you pay to put your chauffeur on the bus?

Dona: brb

Rush: Chan and company would have passed through Truckee, CA on this route.

Matt1: Pop!

mda19083: is that perry white?

Godwinshelley2: What no Ambulanc call?

Rush: Yes!

Rush: He is in another “CC” film.

Godwinshelley2: Or even police?

mda19083: look up in the sky

Rich-Maine: Great Cesars ghost!

Rush: Birthday watch saved the day…and CC!

Godwinshelley2: Yes if only Jimmy Olsen had been in a Chan film, it would have been the lot of them

Rich-Maine: Pretty solid watch!

mda19083: good one rich

Rush: “We SURE WILL!”

Rich-Maine: Charlie only one in black

Godwinshelley2: 9:00

Rush: This gentleman was last seen doing “The Dance of the Spirit” on TV!

Godwinshelley2: The television episode

Dona: My granddaughter is playing high school volleyball. The games have been tues and thurs now league play started and they changed it to Monday Wednesday. Depending on where the game is I may be late for the next month.

Rush: Crossing the Golden gate Bridge into SF…

Rush: The older lady we have seen TWICE before…

angel landini & foxx furr: That’s DIFFERENT from “The Last Dance of The Spirit On TV”. Whole different thing.

Rush: Two Oland films.

Rush: Yes, Angel!

mda19083: sherlock holmes will be on the case to help mrs hudson

Rush: AH!

Godwinshelley2: Back in college, in the dorm, there was a girl who pretended to be drunk and would go from doorknob to doorknob – when she found one unlocked, she would go in and steal stuff if the hall was empty – they tossed her out of school the first month

Rich-Maine: Woman on left on perry Mason

Rush: 🙂

Rush: She was in “The Black Camel” and had a small role in “CC in London.”

angel landini & foxx furr: I saw a FINE photo today—i THINK i screenshot it—of, let me see, Rathbone, Price, Lorre, & Karloff. Yes, THEM four. I will try to send the pic to our Chan Page on Fbook!

Dave: Ah, the wonders of bus travel….

Rush: They are traveling VERY light.

angel landini & foxx furr: I wonder of bus travel.

angel landini & foxx furr: Many lights make hands work.

Hounder: Nice angel

Rush: 🙂

angel landini & foxx furr: TYSM, H!

Rush: Joe must understand sign.

Rush: I love the sound of old typewriters.

Hounder: Yes rush

Dona: i used to type on those.

Dona: i didn’t think i was that old

Godwinshelley2: I occasionally consider taking my “portable” typewriter to a Starbucks

Dona: I like that idea GS

Rush: Me too…very slowly…

Hounder: I still have the IBM selection I got for high school graduation

Rush: GS…next week Svengoolie id=s showing “Dracula” with “added” music.

Godwinshelley2: I have the Smith Corona Clamshell that I got in highschool – got me through college

Hounder: Studio auto correct. Selectric

Rush: I saw it that way before…and I really didn’t like it.

Godwinshelley2: The added music is helpful – that film can really seem sloooowww

Rush: The silence in the original I feel carries the mood.

Rush: Yes, it can be slow…

Godwinshelley2: It does in theaters – with distractions at home, I think it doesn’t do so well

Dave: Wonder if it is available online in original format….

Rush: Also, I thought of another CC “monster actor”.

Rush: Keye Luke!

Rush: he was a main voice in “Godzilla.”

Dave: Right…

Godwinshelley2: Ah – nice

Rush: Hi, Dave!

Godwinshelley2: and we have Leo G Carroll for Trantula?

Rush: Missed your arrival…sorry!

Rush: How is your mother doing?

Dave: ok…no problem…

Rich-Maine has left this room

Dave: She is awaiting surgery number two, and recovering from initial hand surgery.

Rush: Happy to hear she’s recovering.

Godwinshelley2: Hand surgery must be so frustrating

Hounder: Hi dave

Rush: BB…I understand your concern!

Dave: Later ones Re more serious, so she is hopeful, but wary. Hospital space is dwindling, due to current rates…

Rich-Maine has joined this room

Godwinshelley2: Yes – they just stopped elective surgery in a local hospital in Lewes, DE

Dave: She needs to use a walker, so hands are needed…

Rush: Yes, dave.

Dona: WB Rich

Godwinshelley2: Maybe an “arm-rest” along the top of the walker to allow her to lean on it and direct it with her arm?

Hounder: There are several places I’ve heard that have stopped elective surgery

Rich-Maine: If I switch screens on iPad, it drops me!

Dave: I will be hopeful for her sake….

Dave: gs: good idea…

Rush: It sounds to me like your mother’s surgery is a little more than “elective” as she needs the hand to use a walker.

Godwinshelley2: I’ve seen them – the walker needs to be a little higher for that to work

Dave: hounder: correct…

mda19083: GS – headed to lewes on the ferry for some cycling next week

Rush: This scene must have been shot in a real lobby!

Hounder: Could you adapt those forearm bike handles to her walker for her?

Dave: rush: correct

Godwinshelley2: Nice – of course next week we have houseguests – or I might invite you over

Godwinshelley2: MDA – are you familiar with Lewes?

Dave: hounder: I need to take a good look at what she uses

Rush: Confucius might have liked chop suey!

mda19083: will be stopping at dogfish head brewing in rehobeth

Rich-Maine: Just tea….

Godwinshelley2: Ha – I can walk to Dogfish Head from my home

Rush: Yes?

Godwinshelley2: The just put in a bike trail from there to Lavinia rd

angel landini & foxx furr: Maybe cuz we don’t have tonight’s video here, my mind wanders & has tripped on Mr.Wong. I know America’s Sweetheart was destined for The Rock (1950s version) but why couldn’t she have fallen first, if only briefly, for the ur-Wong? Who would forget (or forgive) a union of Boris and Doris Karloff?

Godwinshelley2: What day will you be here?

mda19083: gs – we can have a virtual happy hour

angel landini & foxx furr: Every happy hour is virtual. Should be, anyway.

Rush: Angel: 🙂

Hounder: Might be a way to adapt them so she’d use her arms instead of hands?

Rush: Yes, Hounder.

mda19083: gs – any idea how far is it from the ferry slip to dofish in rehobeth by bike

Hounder: I’m getting good at creative thinking. Lol

angel landini & foxx furr: Now i’m thinking about arms & hands. Always something, here on Punchbowl Hill!

Dave: Hounder: yes…

mda19083: gs – not sure of the date – i am hoping for a sunny day

Rush: $50 then….$750ish today….

Godwinshelley2: There may be some rail trails

angel landini & foxx furr: Monorail, monorail, monorail!

Rich-Maine: How does he know her address?

Godwinshelley2: 6.1 miles and 28 minutes to bicycle to Dogfish Head from the ferry

Rush: Marlo Thomas.

angel landini & foxx furr: We are having the House Special Lo Mein here, not virtually but really, wayward noodles & juice!

Rush: Sounds GOOD, Angel!

Rush: Leftovers to Foxx?

mda19083: gs – thanks for the info – i can make that without breaking a sweat

Hounder: Sounds yummy angel. We did burgers

angel landini & foxx furr: Rush, fast as i can fling ’em!

angel landini & foxx furr: Boigahs!!

Rush: 🙂

Dave: angel: haha

Godwinshelley2: There are bicycle paths – I’m not that familiar with them – PLEASE stop by the Brimming Horn Meadery which is along a bicycle path east of Milton

Rush: And…better late than not at all…for angel…

Rushhttps://st1.chatovod.com/img?url=https%3A%2F%2Fexternal-content.duckduckgo.com%2Fiu%2F%3Fu%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Ftse1.mm.bing.net%252Fth%253Fid%253DOIP.V-4AhoBy6ZDHpL7NuzJPCwHaEo%2526pid%253DApi%26f%3D1&key=2be791a122f4288f8e1c074ceee93707

Godwinshelley2: The owner is my next door neighbor

angel landini & foxx furr: All for me, yes indeed!

Rush: “Man0-War”

Rush: Here come the disguises!

angel landini & foxx furr: Friend who is as big a Perry Mason fan as i, agrees Ham Burger hot-dogged it.

Rush: BB’s is the better one, IMHO!

Hounder: Lol@angel

Godwinshelley2: There is a horror film that Mantan is in – and his hair turns white in that film

ElronArrow has joined this room

Godwinshelley2: Hello Elron

ElronArrow: Hey all. how much did I miss?

Hounder: Welcome elron

Dona: Hi Elron

Godwinshelley2: 30:45

angel landini & foxx furr: A volume of The Wisdom of Birmingham Brown might be slim, but well-packed. Mmmmm, mmmmmmmm!

Godwinshelley2: 31:00

Rush: Hello, and WELCOME, EA!

Godwinshelley2: Elron we are about halfway

angel landini & foxx furr: Hello Arro!!

Rich-Maine: BB is KFC

angel landini & foxx furr: KFC?

Rush: Now I am pretty certain that this is your first time with us?

angel landini & foxx furr: BTW, greetings Rich-Maine! Pleased t’meetcha!

mda19083: GS – thanks for the recommendation – I will be there with one of my Chan buddies

ElronArrow: I am at 32:35

Godwinshelley2: Yes

Rush: So, yours is the Seat of Honor for the remainder of the evening, Elron!

mda19083: they are looking for the real mccoy

Hounder: Charlie is becoming a great b & e man

ElronArrow: why is that Rush?

Rush: 32:45

Rush: I don’t recall the name…sorry!

Godwinshelley2: 33:15

Rush: But my memory CAN fe feeble, admittedly!!!

angel landini & foxx furr: Elron, you may warm yourself in one of the foxfurs that dot our groaning board. No deposit—all stole.

Rush: 33:30

ElronArrow: I try to make it every week. it’s been a while since I pop in.

Rich-Maine: Colonel Saunders

Rush: well…in that case….WELCOME BACK!

Godwinshelley2: Ah Rich – you mean his disguise was as the Colonel

Hounder: Jimmy’s wearing a very short wide tie

Rush: Maybe the “arrow” part threw me!

ElronArrow: I am at 34:15

Godwinshelley2: 34:30

mda19083: colonel mustard?

Godwinshelley2: close enough

Rush: Elron I do know!

DanVenture: Thanks Rush/GS for the timing. (Took forever to find it online.)

Rush: 🙂

mda19083: cue the can

angel landini & foxx furr: COL.SAUNDERS!! How stew-w-w-w-w-pid offff me, as the Brits used to say in these movies! I feel a perfect cad!

Matt1: <tin can>

Godwinshelley2: The advantage of running the DVD – the time is very visible on my player

angel landini & foxx furr: If not a Cad, a Packard.

Rush: Mine too.

Rich-Maine: Hehe Angel…..chat is slowing our brains

ElronArrow: love it when they released it and the movies have all been cleared up.

Rush: YES!

Rush: It is GREAT to have them all commercially!

Rush: “…a balkin’ mule…”

angel landini & foxx furr: Chat is PROTECTING the brains. Sunspots aren’t fun spots, if a pun spot develops & sits stationary over a pressure system!

Godwinshelley2: Good to let the businesses know, we will pay for a good copy

ElronArrow: TCM was all set to play them all too then the issues happened and they stopped. so they just went to DVD. would have been nice if it was Blu-Ray to have more on a DVD.

angel landini & foxx furr: A D V E R T I S E M***

angel landini & foxx furr: M***

Dave: Was thinking about how many tapes I had over the years….beta…vhs…

Godwinshelley2: So many companies involved in ownership – it might be a nightmare to get a BluRay

Rush: Yes, Elron.

angel landini & foxx furr: M***

Dona: Is that tombstone?

Rush: Fox Movie Channel had a bid marathon started and suddenly halted it nearly 20 years ago now!

ElronArrow: we can wait for 50 years to go by again and it will be in public domain at that point unless they renew the license.

angel landini & foxx furr: Why won’t this system let me type “M followed by E followed by N followed by T”??

Rush: I think that fan demand resulted in different DVD sets until we finally had them all!

angel landini & foxx furr: Let’s wait 50 years. I have extra bedrooms.

Rush: Good arising from the bad.

Godwinshelley2: Except for the “lost” films

Dave: I recall getting several on American Movie Classics….

Rush: Yes, GS!

angel landini & foxx furr: The Lost Films are the best.

Rush: THAT would be the treat of trats!!!!

Rush: TREATS

Dona: I keep hoping the lost films will be found before i die

Dave: Me three….

Rush: Me FOUR!

ElronArrow: yeah Rush. They halted because of all the negative feedback they were getting about the actor not being Asian. Back then they had no choice.

Godwinshelley2: So Rush, did Mr Biggers write any horror films?

Rush: Yes, Elron!

ElronArrow: lost films?

angel landini & foxx furr: Was it Warner, or Republic, or both, that had big fire(s) & all our culture burnt to Polly Flinders?

Rush: Keye Luke never had anything but praise for the Chan actors.

angel landini & foxx furr: Keye was a class guy in every way. Multitalented, atop it all.

Rush: Today, actors have less and less room for scope and creativity!

ElronArrow: I know Rush. It was the actor from star trek that made a fuss about it. Guess he didn’t get paid enough.

Dave: One of the studios had a fire in New Jersey….

Rush: No one can play anything that they ain’t!

Rush: Yes, dave.

ElronArrow: oh wow. Didn’t know that Dave.

angel landini & foxx furr: Let’s leave that Trekaktor unnamed. He irritates me in a personal way every now & then, still.

Dave: Paramount?

angel landini & foxx furr: Panama?

Rush: Sometimes I think that that’s why 20th Century-Fox later made the “remakes” of the “lost” films.

ElronArrow: lol angel. that is why I didn’t name the person.

Rich-Maine: So are these just escorts or lots more?

angel landini & foxx furr: Thanks, EA. So many others we could ENJOY discussing.

ElronArrow: they just need to make house without a key. I have the 2nd reprint of the original book. It was hard to find. cost me $40 in the 90’s to get my hands on it.

Dona: Nice Elron

Rush: Nice, Elron!

Rush: 🙂

ElronArrow: that’s how much I love charlie chan and mr. moto.

Rush: There!

angel landini & foxx furr: Rush, how about a Fantasy Casting for some of our films? The brainwave only hit me just now, if i could pick the cast for, say, CC At The Olympics, i’d imagine Mae West, Cagney, Tallulah, & the Marxes—

Rush: TWO!

Matt1: Caught up!

angel landini & foxx furr: KLINK!

mda19083: bobble heads

Matt1: Original bobble heads?

angel landini & foxx furr: Rush CERTAINLY CAN CAN-CAN!!

ElronArrow: at least he caught her. lol

Rush: I would take the Marx Bros for the shipboard chases in “CC at the Race track”!

Rush: Break it…BUY it, Birmingham!

angel landini & foxx furr: Was it Mrs. Thatcher who said to GHWB, “Don’t go bobbly on us, George”?

Rush: Some improv here?

angel landini & foxx furr: ALWAYS!

Hounder: Fun house mirrors in oriental store

Dave: Seems like it…

angel landini & foxx furr: Never forget IMPROV spelt back’ards is VORPMI.

Rush: The poor shop owner! “Oh, these TOURISTS!!!”

Rush: Nice little cartoon “jump!” there by BB!

angel landini & foxx furr: Was it Gershwin or Porter who wrote, “I’d like to make a tour / of you”?

ElronArrow: Bela Lugosi is very push. evening without him being a vampire. lol

Rush: Yes!

ElronArrow: does anyone know why he wanted to play in Charlie Chan film?

angel landini & foxx furr: Lugosi was quite handsome, in his less-Cobainy, purely paregoric youth.

Rush: Elron, I think that they probably wanted HIM to be in “The Black camel.”

angel landini & foxx furr: Maybe to BE the Black Camel!

Rush: (wink)

angel landini & foxx furr: IN TENTS ACTING!

Dave: ouch…

angel landini & foxx furr: Stop me before i smirk again!

ElronArrow: I see Rush.

Rush: Or…perhaps Lugosi thought that the “Black Camel” role might help his career so he would not only be associated with monster roles?

Rush: Didn’t work, if so, i guess!

Hounder: Don’t do it. It’s a trap

Rush: 🙂

Rush: BB spilled the beans!

Dona: bad idea

ElronArrow: ok if someone get hit on the head they don’t wake up that fast. lol

Rush: Nice radio.

Rich-Maine: High-fidelity

Rush: Wire photo…We saw that demonstrated in “CC at the Opera.”

Dave: That was great!

Rush: That lady was the strong woman in “The Jade Mask.”

angel landini & foxx furr: CC was always on the edge. He had ship-to-shore working before there were ships, almost before there was shore.

Rich-Maine: Oh yes she was!

angel landini & foxx furr: I’ll say she was!

Rush: Note the position of that mirrow in the car BB is driving there.

Rich-Maine: Yeah very stright

angel landini & foxx furr: Nobody could sneak up on our BB.

Rush: Must have been so the studio light wouldn’t reflect, or something….

ElronArrow: If I had to choose a favorite CC I would pick Meeting at midnight.

Rush: That IS an unusual entry in the series, Elron!

Rush: I love that it has another Chan daughter in the assistant role!

ElronArrow: yeah it kept you on your toes.

Rush: Frances.

Rich-Maine: Good luck CC

Rush: The pickpocket helps here!

angel landini & foxx furr: Meeting at Midnight was originally titled Black Magic, was it not, Rush? I always liked the old guy with the round head who got played.

Rush: yes, Angel.

angel landini & foxx furr: You think his head was actually round?

angel landini & foxx furr: All around?

angel landini & foxx furr: No flat spots?

Rush: name changed because of the Orson Welles movie of the same name released a few years later.

ElronArrow: When you watch it on the DVD it says Black Magic with the Meeting at Midnight. Guess they couldn’t make up their minds.

Rush: he needed CC’s watch!

Rich-Maine: The film at the Malibu beach is fun

angel landini & foxx furr: He was good. I was sorry his buttons got luminous-painted & he got offed.

Rush: yes!

Rich-Maine: The can!

Hounder has left this room

Rush: Hold the can…

ElronArrow: now I want tea since she said it. lol

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Understood, Elron!

Rush: CC uses some martial moves there.

Hounder has joined this room

Rush: Get him to the hospital!

Hounder: I love the pick pocket joins the good guys

Rush: WB…Hounder!

Rush: Good BB quote!

Hounder: Made it just in time for the end

angel landini & foxx furr: I just Wiki’d (i know, that’s cheating—call a cop, why doncha?) & learned the title was changed in 1949 or so “for television”. Y’know what ELSE i learned? OUR RUSH is a Wiki Source for the synopsis. Redirect comes HERE, to THIS VERY DETECTIVES’ SQUADTABLE!!!!!!!!

Rush: CC rewites history…

Rush: Cue dolphin!
