MTM: I haven't started with Charlie Chan. The first thing I did was to order tapes of some of the Rainbow Quest programs. Meanwhile I rented all the movie classics I could find here (which weren't many)
Thanks for the sites, your blue clicky things worked perfectly. I have bookmarked them and will peruse them later (when I am not supposed to be working ;^)
Don: I mispent my youth (say up to age 50) reading Charlie Chan novels and, when I lived in Philly, watching CC movies on late night TV.
Clifton: I was numba one son. I have put numba three son, who is on the net and who still lives in Philly, onto finding me one too. He hasn't come across yet.
There is one that I saw as a kid in one of those cheap movie houses that played old films because they were old, not because they were classic. In that one Birmingham Brown meets another black comic and they go on to have a conversation where each one never finishes his sentence before the other replies eg. "How is old..." Oh, pretty good, but I hear he has a..." "That's too bad...." etc. I would love to know the title of that one.
