I recently wrote about some "lost" El Brendel home movies
coming to light and in the post I showed some scans of what appears to be footage from the set of the 1940 Universal feature "If I Had My Way
". Well, here is a recently unearthed picture of El actually doing the filming on the set of the movie!!
The printed on the snipe on the rear of the photo has all the info:
Eddie Leonard.,most famous of all minstrel men, is one of several stage stars who return to the bright lights for an appearance in the new Big Crosby - Gloria Jean picture, "IF I HAD MY WAY" at Universal. Here Eddie talks to Charles Winninger while El Brendel photographs them with his home movie camera.
So that is a photo of El filming the exact home movies which you have right now.
I'm... I'm verklempt. That is so amazing I have run out of adjectives.
Stacia, It would certainly appear so!!
