One of the reasons for starting this blog was certainly to try to create a greater appreciation for the much maligned comedian El Brendel, whom New York's Film Forum once referred to as "history’s most irritating comedian". Another reason was to show photos and memorabilia I have acquired of some of my favorite stars and this is the post to start it off.
These photos come from the 1932 Fox Production "Tess of the Storm Country" starring one of my faves Janet Gaynor and her frequent screen companion Charles Farrell. An absolutely STUNNING print of this film was shown at this years Capitolfest in Rome New York (which if you haven't been to yet, what have you been waiting for??).
