Hi I'm new to the site and I see no posts in many many many Months......I know Charlie has MANY Fans and I know there is much to discuss concerning Charlie, #1,#2, Birmingham Brown. But sadly I see nothing.....So I use the limited detective skills I have(and it's not many) to search and find Ya'll(yea it's a Texas saying). So the 1st way is to Post a Question to see if anyone KNOWS. Now It's your Turn whats another way?   :-\

Thanks Old Movie Fan

Hi: I do not know how to find fans or more fans...this used to be a very active site but the continuing problems are: many who used to visit this site regularly are no longer with us or are infirm; younger people do not have as much interest in these old films and doubly so because they are considered often to be politically incorrect; those who are still around and still check in have discussed almost every imaginable aspect of these films over the years so began to find some discussions very repetitive. In sum the short answer may be that fewer people actually watch these films so the aficionados are harder to discover. Anyway, I still love the films, at least the Twentieth Century-Fox entries and wish there was a more active community with new perspectives on these films. Chris.

glad to see new activity on the site. I have tried in the past to list when old mysteries are playing on TCM, since it is rare for them to show an actually chan movie. It was a little more common when fans were requesting these showings

Tysm for the replies...... I gave it  several days as I know work, personal, and just age cause folks to not attend sites.  Chris thanks for the image and comment, and insight.Rodb for your thoughts, it's hard to think a classic movie channel has devided to show things not focused on films of the "Golden Age".  I love the B & W films, and mystery,crime, and spooky is all in the Chan films. Never stop talking about them... and others always see things even years after I first saw them (for me the 60's).  :) I still watch my films each week, even if it running in the background while I do the "honey do list" around the house. I KNOW that others are out there lurking I know. As Charlie would say "long journey always start with one short step". Hopefully this will stir the pot and we will discuss a Chan film this weekend. I'm watching Dead Men
Tell tonight.....love the spooky friday night feel of it.

I log into this site about once a week to see if there is any new activity.  I started a new thread, and I am happy to see activity on this thread.   I would like to see a discussion about a Chan film, even if it is repetitive for us "old timers".  It might be a way to get some new people interested in this site, and help rekindle a few old friendships from past participants.
