Nothere: Hi Lindsay. Didn’t see you there

Louise has joined this room

Len Freeman: Lindsay waves back

Rush: louise!

Nothere: Hi Louise

Louise: Hello Gang!

Len Freeman: Hi Louise

Rush: Good evening to YOU!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey Louise

Matt1: Hello Louise!

Louise: Nice to see you all

LibraryJim has joined this room

Nothere: Hey Jim

Matt1: Hello Jim!

Rush: Great to see YOU!

LibraryJim: hi, all

Len Freeman: LJ

Rush: LJ!

Rush: Welcome and good evening!

LibraryJim: Thank you, good to be here

Louise: So will I be sad at the end since this is Toler’s last film?

Len Freeman: Welll

Rush: Yes, Louise.

Nothere: So can you read this?

Len Freeman: Unfortunately it wasn’t his best film…

Rush: Yes, NT.


LibraryJim: You can see he’s struggling with his health in this one.

Nothere: Setting things to Hungarian didn’t change much. 🙂

Rush: No, but, as has been said before: “The only bad Chan movie is NO Chan movie!”

Louise: Yes Rush!

Rush: 🙂

Matt1: And we have an Oland next week?

Len Freeman: The script and acting are not up to the usual CC levels.

Rush: That’s right!

Matt1: Wahoo!

Rush: We celebrate Oland’s birthday with “Charlie Chan in London.”

Nothere: And now the unsuspecting gather little knowing of the fate that awaits them.

Rush: True, Len.

Len Freeman: Still… Sidney does a good job with what was weak material

Nothere: O.k. I give up. How did you guys change the color of your pots?

Rush: And, also, this one sets the “record” for screaming!

Nothere: posts even.

Len Freeman: LOL yes

Rush: Click the pain bucket icon.

Nothere: Just one reason I call this the slasher Chan Rush.

LibraryJim: we can change the color???

Rush: AH!

Rush: Yes.

Nothere: u

Matt1: No way!

Rush: BUT we need to do that with EACH post.

Nothere: That’s it Jim. Show off.

Len Freeman: Ahhhh… Ok now I get your reference NH

Rush: Cannot set it to remain that way throughout.

Nothere: so

Nothere: AHHH I did it. Yeah m:)

LibraryJim: Me?show off? Unheard of.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Color.

Matt1: Word

Louise: oh you are all artists!

Matt1: Cued!

Mike n Rachel in DC: This seems a little dark

Rush: Here is a vintage postcard showing a landmark that we will see at the start of the film…

Nothere: Course it’s not the only horror movie type set up. Egypt and Wax Museum could easily have een redone as horrors.


Nothere: Oh and Dead Men Tell.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Malibu Beach…

Len Freeman: Ah yes

Rush: Yes.

LibraryJim: Great getting Popcorn oil on my keyboard!

Rush: 6 minutes until showtime….

Louise: CUED

Rush: Please pause at the opening title…

Nothere: What no butter? You animal.

Nothere: AHOOOOOO!

LibraryJim: nah, just what was in the bag to pop the stuff.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Having a little post-dinner Brie here…

Nothere: Brie in your Beret?

Len Freeman: A nice sidenote in this is Kirk Allyn as the patrolman…. who’d later (1948) become the first movie Superman in his breakout role

LibraryJim: bet melted Brie would go well with popcorn.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sounds like a Food Network feature, LJ

Rush: Remember to look for that mysterious figure who walks in front of the stationary camera on the beach as the opening credits are apprearing….

Rush: 37 seconds in…

Nothere: Look their on the road. It’s a rabbit. It’s a motorcycle. It’s the future Superman.

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is it Alfred Hitchcock?

Godwinshelley2: We have a King Cole Farm out here

Rush: “Old Cole King was a paranoid old thing…”

Nothere: All right which one of you is LEx Luthor?

LibraryJim: So Henry Cavell wasn’t the first Superman with a mustache!

Rush: Pacifi Coast Highway.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is that a gate?

Rush: Known then as the “Roosevelt Highway.”

Godwinshelley2: The gate looked like a movie studio entrance

Louise: Happy ladies

Rush: Indoor set.

Rush: “624”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Very welcoming, she is.

Rush: Yes.

Louise: As I always say, they have an old Victorian lady in 19th century dress

Godwinshelley2: Maybe it was work-attire for house keepers

Mike n Rachel in DC: She looks like “American Primitive”

Nothere: So group of coeds go to a well this isn’t exactly an isolated house. First slasher tropeCreepy housekeeper. Aecond lasher trope.

LibraryJim: Not to mention the spooky housekeeper. Mrs. Igor.

Nothere: What’s to explain. You never taught your kids to use front doors.

Rush: Barbara jean Wong.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Flirt

Nothere: Kep your mind on your work Sarge:)

Rush: cabana (cabaña) – (Spanish) (1) A shelter on a beach or at a swimming pool used as a bathhouse. (2) A cabin or hut.

Mike n Rachel in DC:

Rush: Charlie Chan in Honolulu: Number Three Chan Daughter

Rush: Yes he is!

LibraryJim: mirror

Rush: And, anonther mirror encounter!

LibraryJim: love his clowning

Rush: Priceless.

Mike n Rachel in DC: It can’t be easy for an actor to carry this much screen time with no dialog or anything…brilliant

Louise: BOINK!

Mike n Rachel in DC:

Rush: OUCH!

Rush: Stunned but not knocked out.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Concussion protocol…

Rush: Indeed!

Len Freeman: Lindsay thinks Mantan is great physical comedy

Rush: “TORO!”

Louise: SCREAM!

Mike n Rachel in DC: The famous “cape scene.”

Nothere: Alright it’s the Phantom of the Opera.

Rush: Maybe someone was walking in their sleep, imagining themselves to be a matador…

Rush: (trhemself)

Mike n Rachel in DC: Mo cho again..

LibraryJim: a matador? Bull!

Rush: Cole king edges ever closer to his nervous breakdown…

Nothere: A magician working on the pull a rabbit out of the cape trick?

Len Freeman: pweaiarwnr

Mike n Rachel in DC: Working without pay, probably

Len Freeman: oops

Nothere: Charlie strangling your kid is a bit much disapline.

Mike n Rachel in DC: lol

Rush: Probably!

Louise: Who has not wanted to strangle their kid…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Garrotter?

Rush: Our new vocabulary word for today…

danventure has joined this room

Nothere: Hey Dan

danventure: Ha! I remembered!

Rush: A fancy word for a strangler!

Cdirus: Hi Dan!

Rush: DV! WELCOME!!!

danventure: And just in time for vocabulary too.

Nothere: And were grateful you did.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Like they say…with friends like that…

LibraryJim: By George, Jimmy got it!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey DV!

danventure: Where are we in the timeline?

Rush: 32:15

Rush: 32:30…

Mike n Rachel in DC: The Maestro again…

Rush: 32:45…

Rush: 33:00…

Rush: Beach scene…

Nothere: Squeltcher,

Rush: 33:15…

Nothere: Throttler

danventure: Ah, case of the crabs…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oh dear!

Nothere: Asphixiator.


Rush: TYSM, Matt…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Or Asphixatrix?

Nothere: Don’t be crabby Mike:)

Rush: garroted – The act of being strangulated in a manner reminiscent of the old Spanish method in which prisoners were executed, usually by the use of an iron collar.
“Doc” Brandt: “She was garroted, a cord around her neck.”

Rush: Suicide!!!

LibraryJim: Suicide???

Rush: Easy to debunk that theory!

Nothere: It’s possible. I knew a guy who accidently fell on a knife with hiss back seven times.

LibraryJim: First a Chinese trick, now a woman’s knot. That guy is a wealth of misinformation

Rush: More location shots.

Rush: This and “The Black Camel” were the ONLY Chan films that made use of an actual location.

Nothere: How can you have put me in this movie. There a lot of guys a buff as me , and they take off their shirts. I’ll never be Superman with films like thi.

Rush: 🙂

Louise: Lordy stop screeching

Rush: Yes.

Rush: Pretty soon, Cole King will join the “hysteric’s parade.”

Nothere: Well folk this is where I leave you. May Clem’s dulcet tones not sing you to sleep until I am not here again.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Good evening NT

Rush: TYSM, NT.

Rush: Take care…

LibraryJim: Night NT

Len Freeman: Nite NH

Rush: Have a happy and safe week.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Perhaps the Maestro is familiar with the chords?

Rush: Next week: “Charlie Chan in London.”

danventure: You are right, Rush, on locations in CC. I had fun tracking down the restaurant shown in the opening. Building still there.

Rush: AH!

Nothere has left this room

Rush: Very good, DV!

Rush: Is it still called the “Malibu Inn”?

angel & fox has joined this room

Rush: ANGEL!!!!

angel & fox: HELLO!

Rush: Welcome BACK!

Rush: How have you been?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hello A&F!


LibraryJim: MarCia,MarCia,MarCia.

LibraryJim: Hi angel

angel & fox: John! John! John!

Rush: And, greetings to YOU!

Rush: It has been way too long!

Rush: Third door on the left, Angel!

danventure: Sadly, the “Malibu Inn” is no more. Perhaps some distant descendant.

angel & fox: embarrassed at attention We am, and i are, FYNE! Yes it HAS been too long…

Rush: YES!

angel & fox: i hope to resume regular attendance at the roundtable soon—i have been away in quest of a HOUSE, which i SIGNED PAPERS ON last Friday!

Rush: Note the tire tracks on the pavement showing evidence of earlier run-throughs.

Mike n Rachel in DC: clammed up

Godwinshelley2: Congrats on the home Angle


Godwinshelley2: Angel

Rush: Angel, do you have a copy of our film?

angel & fox: I am grateful to YOU ALL for your kind remarx!

Rush: (bowing…)

angel & fox: As to Our Film—i THINK SO—thanks to LEN here, i have a PLAYABLE (the one i bought on Amazon was not) CC Box Set—

Rush: I would submit that this is the most “emotional” of all Chan films in the series!

Rush: AH!

Rush: Are you able to watch along with us?

Rush: Or, is the DVD packed away in preparation for your move?

angel & fox: On setting up housekeeping, one of the requisites will be Media Friendliness (NO politics here, folks!)—i want the house as wired (or wireless) as i am, & may START the video system with a CHARLIE CHAN MARATHON!

Godwinshelley2: Sounds like a wise choice

Rush: Sounds like a great idea, Angel!

Rush: Cabaña.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Copa?

Rush: 🙂

angel & fox: To your apropos question(s), Rush, the CC Box Set is right at hand, but i fear by the time i slot the disc in Birmingham will have solved tonight’s crime as he does every Monday night approx 9PM Eastern.

Rush: Well…we have roughly 20 minutes remaining…

Len Freeman: happy Chan set find home in new home..

angel & fox: I MAY WELL put tonight’s film on the private screen here just to re-waken old bones to winds of heinous crime, after we break!

Rush: “Leisurely hunter have time to stalk prey, but hunter in haste must set trap.”

Rush: Len: 🙂

Rush: A nice thought, Angel!

Rush: They need some cats.

Rush: Funny bit here…

angel & fox: We ALL need some cats.

Rush: Searching for a secret panel…?

Rush: Jimmy didn’t see him!

Mike n Rachel in DC: put…the…candle…back

angel & fox: At the garage where i work, people come in with Catalytic Converter issues. I tell them the environment may be one thing, but for all the devices out there, there’s no evidence of any cats being converted.

Rush: 🙂

Rush: 🙂

Rush: (One for mike…one for Angel)

angel & fox: Ever.

Rush: (Clunk!)

angel & fox: Right-o, Rush!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Angel…look for the cats with yarmulkes. Easy to find the converts.

angel & fox: My gran would say “here’s mud in your eye”, but that may have been cuz my gramp was an optometrist.

Louise: SCREAM! again

Rush: You guys are ON tonight!

LibraryJim: he swings — a miss. He swings again — a hit!

Rush: So is Clementine…

angel & fox: MnR:

angel & fox: Oh my darling!

Rush: Mrs. weebles stepped over her!

Rush: Interesting fish trophy!

angel & fox: Dreadful sorry, Clementine. There was mud in my eye.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Does Mrs. Weebles wobble?

angel & fox: Gimme that filet of fish, give me that fish.

angel & fox: I recall Mrs.Thatcher cautioning B-41 “Don’t go weebly, George”.

Rush: So, our two words for tonight: Garrote (garroted, garroter) and cabana.

Rush: Cole King’s lost it.

Mike n Rachel in DC: We are ready for the Chan SAT!

angel & fox: At the Copa, don’t fall with gloves.

Len Freeman: King Cole did not win an Oscar for this role….

Rush: NO!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Clearly the strain of conducting a vaudeville orchestra has put the Maestro over the edge.

Rush: Yes.

Mike n Rachel in DC: “…make Chan look like a monkey.” Right. Good luck with that, big guy.

Rush: Maybe that’s why the troupe planned a nice restful stay at the beach.

angel & fox: MnR, the proctors have excused you from the timed SAT’s. A combined 1350 has been conferred on you, another 40 points could be finessed if a certain fox fur was to turn up in the Dean’s office.

Rush: So the Maestro could rest his jangled nerves.

angel & fox: With the right makeup, the monkey might look like Chan—to a blind horse.

Rush: Sonds like a DEAL, Angel!

Mike n Rachel in DC: searches for fox fur

angel & fox: MnR—Rush—we WON’T tell the Varsity Blues guys. Strictly QT here, need-to-know, don’tcha know.

Rush: Duct work…not meant for human traffic!

Louise: Did someone say fox fur?

Rush: Jimmy will find that out soon…

Cdirus: I have a mink skin and a squirrel tail, will that do?

Rush: Louise…I think that may have come up, yes!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rabbit’s foot?

Rush: CD: 🙂

angel & fox: MnR: Just leave it draped over the Dean’s armrest. You can send the fancy box over when you find it.

Len Freeman: Linday says Feets dont fail me now

Rush: Send the repair bill to Mr. Chan.

angel & fox: You can lead a goose to water, but you can’t make a duck work. Not for these wages.

Rush: 🙂

Len Freeman: JImmy in blackface

angel & fox: Remember Little Feat?

Len Freeman: have they no shame

Rush: Yes.

Rush: I mean, no.

angel & fox: I thought that was Justin Trudeau!

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: LOL

angel & fox: EVERYBODY wants to get in to the act.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Bigfoot? Is he in this movie?

Rush: BB got stunned by the fall?

Rush: The chase….

Mike n Rachel in DC: Pretty heroic chase music

angel & fox: I get stunned by the autumn. And a beautiful horse. Or duck. DUCK!

Rush: 75….

Rush: That’s a slow 75….

Rush: Bumpy dirt road…

Mike n Rachel in DC: 75 kph perhaps

LibraryJim: he’d be flying over those bumps

Rush: CRASH!

angel & fox: Wagner was hoping to make the soundtrack here. Winifred went over to Adolf out of sour grapes.

Rush: And, an older model car, to boot!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Music and cliffhanger…just like a serial

Rush: YES!

angel & fox: Lovely Rita, don’t boot my car!

Rush: HA!

angel & fox: Suspense…SUSPENSION!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Cue sirens

Rush: Not a good way to enter the next life: “I hope he suffers.”

Len Freeman: CPR anyone

Rush: Too late….

Len Freeman: Happy Solution?!?

Rush: Time for DOA….

angel & fox: I WISH we could have SOUND! If i ever win the lottery, i’ll establish an Endowment for a hi-tech Chan Clan site.

Mike n Rachel in DC: smooch

Rush: 🙂

Matt1: I couldn’t post

Matt1: Grrrr

Rush: (Scream….)

Godwinshelley2: The END

Rush: BB gets the last laugh…

Len Freeman: OK….

Mike n Rachel in DC:


LibraryJim: look at that!

Rush: THE END…yes….

Rush: Well….

Mike n Rachel in DC: Not quite Gone With the Wind, but some nice moments.

danventure: Deep subject Rush

Rush: That is the final Sidney Toler film in the series….

Mike n Rachel in DC: Farewell, Sidney!

Rush: Next week….

danventure: Indeed.

angel & fox: Rush will be the Dean. Coffee mugs, tote bags & umbrellas will be provided to members like You, in partnership with the Geraldine R. Dodge dodge, and the chubby Chubb Group.

LibraryJim: better than I remembered it, maybe it gets better with each viewing
