Those are the only ones I can think of, too.
The Thin Man was set during the Christmas season and had so many scenes of trees, shopping, parties, etc.
Merry Christmas to the Charlie Chan Message Board gang!

General Discussion / Charlie Chan and Christmas
« Last post by John Cucinotta on December 24, 2019, 11:01:04 am »
Merry Christmas to all who read this Board.   Even though this site has become quiet, i still have many fond memories of the lively discussions we used to have on this Board.  I remember a discussion years ago, trying to remember Christmas references in Chan films or other similar mystery films such as Mr. Moto.  I can think of two such Christmas references:

1.  In "CC at the Olympics", Charlie receives tickets to the Opening Ceremonies of the 1936 Berlin Olympics from a man who is unknown to him.  Lee cautions Charlie about accepting gifts from a stranger.  Charlie replies that he has never seen Santa Claus, but accepts gifts from him.

2.  In "CC in Monte Carlo", Charlie and Inspector Joubert are questioning the murder suspects, including Evelyn Gray, a woman who seems quite wealthy but has no visible source of income.  Inspector Joubert makes reference to her unexplained wealth, and reminds her that "there are no Christmas trees in Monte Carlo".

Can anyone remember any more Christmas references, either in a Chan film, or another similar mystery?

Dear Old Movie Fan:  I haven't checked this site in a few weeks.  I am sorry to read of your recent misfortunes.  I hope you are recovering from both events.

Neat little channel I found on my sling tv. Turns out it free and available thru many way. Thought I'd share it with you. Hope all are well. I have been recovering from a stroke, and my father passed away 2 1/2 weeks ago. Been a rough time, but at my age these things are norm. Still tough. Funny how a good mystery help take your mind off things.  ;)

I just finished watching the latest Aurora Teagarden Mystery called "An Inheritance to Die For".  This is an excellent movie, and I think that this is the best of the Aurora Teagarden Mystery Movies that they have produced.  The storyline is somewhat more complex than some of the prior episodes, and there is a strong supporting cast.  I highly recommend this movie.  If you are new to this series, this movie may be harder to follow since you don't know all of the regular characters.  As I previously posted, it is best to first watch the episode called "A Bone to Pick", which provides a good introduction to the series.
