General Discussion / Merry Christmas to CCMB
« Last post by OldMovieFan on December 24, 2021, 11:50:07 pm »
I know our lives have gone different directions over the years, however I remember the "Good Ole Days" when Kurt's board was the big focus for all Chan fans. I still think of each one of you at this time of year and wanted to express my heartfelt love for each one of you and families as well. Merry Christmas from one end to the other across this world.

We are at about 9 degrees no snow but chilly, putting a log on for the evening... Happy holiday my extended family

TCM also occasionally shows "The Drums of Jeopardy", where Warner Oland plays a sinister non-Asian character.  This is also a good movie to watch, and I will post a message if I see it turn up on the schedule.

I forgot to post a message here, but a few days ago TCM showed "Before Dawn", a murder mystery from 1933.  Warner Oland has a big part in the film, playing an Eastern European doctor here in the US.  It's a good movie to watch, and it's interesting to see Oland in a different non-Asian character role.  I've seen this film listed on the TCM schedule before, so it is possibly shown several times a year.  Keep an eye on the schedule for this movie.

General Discussion / OT - They Won't Believe Me (1947) now on DVD and BluRay

Not sure if many on this forum still pay much attention to recent Warner Archive releases. Anyway,  I spotted "They Won't Believe Me" (1947) with Robert Young, Susan Hayward and Jane Greer ...  now available as a "Video on Demand" DVD or BluRay. It's the 94 min version. The one I recorded years ago from TV was 91 mins and even that one was a bit longer than some of the "chopped up" versions being shown elsewhere.     
"Drums of Jeopardy" is another old Warner Oland film that I saw years ago, and I probably have an old Betamax copy somewhere in the family room closet.  Like "Before Dawn", Oland plays a sinister character.  The Russian setting in "Drums of Jeopardy" creates a different atmosphere, and this is a decent movie to watch once or twice.
I caught it earlier in the month when TCM ran it, and enjoyed it very much. It was a good, "old house" mystery, with Oland doing his usual superb acting. It reminded me of "Drums of Jeopardy."  ...Ed K.
Hi, Ed.  I haven't seen or thought about this film in many years.  Long ago, it aired on a TV station in Syracuse, and I have an old Betamax copy of the film.  Like some of his other earlier movies, Oland plays a sinister character.  The storyline is interesting, and the movie is worth watching.
