Happy 121st b-day, El!!!

Today marks the 120th birthday of Elmer Goodfellow Brendel, born March 25th, 1891.  For the celebration, here's some photos from throughout his career.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY EL!!:

In vaudeville, 17 years old

during the filming of "Wings" in 1927

with Victor McLaglen from the sadly lost film, "Hot For Paris" (1929)

looking like a deer caught in the headlights, from the 1949 film, "The Beautiful Blonde From Bashful Bend"

with Gloria Jean from the 1959 movie, "The Madcaps"

and finally, here's El with Raymond Burr on the set of the "Perry Mason" TV show.  El was on the 1962 episode "The Case of the Borrowed Baby"

A wonderful tribute to El on his birthday anniversary. You know, I'm fairly certain I've seen all the "Perry Mason" reruns, but I never noticed El in an episode. This is one more reason why I think some channel needs to air the reruns again.

My goodness, I've never seen a picture of El so young before. Great stuff!

I got a couple others of him which are a bit younger, which I'll post sometime.
