pdclassicdvds: There is the fish book again.17:42

Rush: Yes!17:42

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Absorbed in “Fish.”17:42

Rush: :)17:42

Louise: Dancing again!17:42

Rush: I would think that that would be a VERY elementary book on the subject.17:42

Mike (n Rach) in DC: He’s eager to finish that so he can start on “Fowl”17:42

Len Freeman: Ichthyologist reading a book called FISH? (son Matt notes)17:42

Rush: Mike: :)17:43

pdclassicdvds: He will soon start volume two – Birds17:43

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Could be, PDC. I was thinking of recipes. :)17:43

Rush: Siva Siva (Siva Samoa) – A traditional Samoan dance which requires the dancer to exhibit a particular grace of movement involving the arms and hands. 17:43

Godwinshelley2: Maybe he is writing an updated version for his class17:43

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Shiva–the Destroyer17:44

Rush: Yes.17:44

Len Freeman: CC walks very stiffly… age etc. showing17:45

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Tough guy.17:45

Rush: By this time, Sidney toler was probably showing the effects of the cancer that took his life after “The Trap.”17:45

Godwinshelley2: Did he have any surgery for his cancer?17:46

Rush: Which, by the way, is our movie for next week…17:46

Rush: That I don’t know.17:46

Rush: I have never heard that he did.17:46

Mike (n Rach) in DC: From Wikipedia: Diagnosed with cancer, the 72-year-old Toler was so ill during the filming of Dangerous Money (1946) and Shadows over Chinatown (1946) that he could hardly walk. Monogram hired Toler’s original foil, “Number Two Son” Victor Sen Yung, for Toler’s last three films, quite probably to ease the burden on Toler.17:46

Rush: (Or read.)17:46

pdclassicdvds: That is a shame.17:47

Rush: Very good, Mike…TYSM.17:47

Godwinshelley2: Cancer was always whispered about – rarely discussed openly in my family17:47

Rush: Yes.17:47

Mrs Pendleton: Ugh, issue with food delivery, missed most of the film. Mrs P will try again another time. G’nite!17:47

Rush: It seems most families have been touched by that disease.17:47

Rush: Thankfully, the treatments are much better than in the past.17:48

pdclassicdvds: the two stooges17:48

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Good night, Mrs P…hope to see you again soon!17:48

Godwinshelley2: even the Chan family17:48

Rush: Take care, Mrs. P!17:48

Mrs Pendleton has left this room17:48

Rush: Hope to see you again…SOON!17:48

Rush: Yes, GS.17:48

Mike (n Rach) in DC: It looks like Toler only lived about 6 mos. after he finished “The Trap.”17:48

Rush: Yes.17:49

Louise: You are all making me sad that we lost Toler17:49

Rush: 17:49

Mike (n Rach) in DC: I’m always moved by his determination to continue to make films to support his family.17:49

Rush: That is a collage of the arrival we will see soon….17:49

Rush: Yes, Mike…17:50

Godwinshelley2: Acting is a tough gig when you get sick17:50

Len Freeman: hot money again17:50

Rush: Yes….17:50

Rush: Again…the working title for this film.17:50

Godwinshelley2: I miss Raul Julia – that last film of his really showed how ill he was17:50

Rush: Yes, GS.17:50

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Well, ST gets the “The Show Must Go On” all-time Hall of Fame award.17:50

Rush: I agree, Mike.17:51

Rush: That was a cablegram from Tommy.17:51

Rush: This is the last we hear from him in the series.17:52

Mike (n Rach) in DC: I wish the actors in these films could know that we still appreciate their talent and work. 17:52

Rush: (Not counting, of course when Jimmy starts being called “Tommy”!)17:52

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Poke-chop 711 on the prowl…17:52

Rush: Mike, that would be nice, wouldn’t it?17:53

Rush: Somehow, I think that they do!17:53

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Hopefully art lives on, Rush! :)17:53

Godwinshelley2: James Hong has a facebook page that I follow. He still does some gigs.17:54

Rush: The arrival…17:54

Rush: Nice footage here!17:54

Rush: This shows Pago pago, American Samoa….17:54

Mike (n Rach) in DC: This is real footage then?17:54

Rush: The Naval radio tower…17:54

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Hm. Nice antenna…17:54

Rush: Yes…but stock.17:54

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Mango Inn…looks nice than the “House of Shadows”17:55

Rush: Yes, that was the shortwave radio tower for the U.S. Navy.17:55

Mike (n Rach) in DC: *nicer17:55

Rush: The Mango Inn.17:55

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Much better food than the Kumquat Hostel17:56

pdclassicdvds: I wonder if they serve Big Macs in this place?17:56

Rush: That fan held by CC has a stamped ad for a Los Angeles funeral home on the other side!17:56

Rush: You can see it in the detail of a still that I sent out last night.17:56

Mike (n Rach) in DC: What is on the back of her dress?17:56

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Rush…that’s like the salt shaker medical tools on TOS Star Trek17:57

Rush: HM!17:57

Rush: Not a nice man….17:58

Mike (n Rach) in DC: What is that?17:58

Rush: He could use a nice punch to the gut!17:58

Rush: I’d settle for a slap!17:59

Mike (n Rach) in DC: I bet PJ is not long for this world17:59

Rush: BUSTED!17:59

Len Freeman: This guy’s asking for it17:59

Rush: YES!17:59

pdclassicdvds: Caught like a rat in a trap18:00

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Talk freely, PJ18:00

Rush: Chan tells him off in his way….18:00

Rush: He should have thought of that before….18:01

pdclassicdvds: oh oh18:01

Louise: cool shot through the screen18:02

Rush: Yes.18:02

pdclassicdvds: why did he fall to the left?18:02

Matt1: 18:02

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Hope tin isn’t rationed18:02

Matt1: Some impressive knife skills18:03

pdclassicdvds: remove this18:03

Len Freeman: ouch18:03

pdclassicdvds: the old knife in the neck trick18:03

Rush: Yes.18:03

Mike (n Rach) in DC: 7-1118:04

Rush: Big Ben sells laded dice.18:04

Rush: (loaded)18:04

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Hot Money (again)18:04

Rush: They got the money….18:04

Rush: Kansas City bankroll – (Slang) A term for a roll of money that is actually a few bills of high value rolled around those of lesser or no value fashioned to appear as a big roll of money. 18:05

Rush: Nice backdrop here….18:05

Rush: Rear projected moonlit bay…18:06

Len Freeman: another one18:13

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Dropping like flies18:13

Len Freeman: well this cut down the suspects18:13

Rush: I am guessing, or suggesting, that those knives must have also contained some sort of fast acting poison to be able to kill the victims so fast!18:14

Rush: A Gauguin painting.18:14

Godwinshelley2: Ah – the classic 3 Stooges moving candle/light18:15

Rush: And some alliteration: “Mrs. Marsh’s miniature.”18:15

Rush: The box turtle with the attached flashlight.18:15

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Gauguin spent a lot of time in the tropics :)18:15

Rush: Yes…but not in Samoa.18:16

Mike (n Rach) in DC: His “Box Turtle with Flashlight” is regarded as one of his masterpieces. 18:16

Rush: His painting must have worked its way there through the theft!18:16

Godwinshelley2: There is also the classic parrot under the moving skull that is fun too18:16

Rush: he was on Tahiti and Nuku Hiva (the Marquesas).18:17

Rush: Yes, GS!18:17

Rush: Especially when it FLEW!18:17

Mike (n Rach) in DC: Fail on the knife18:17
