El Brendel returns to Cinefest, March 13th-16th

I know, I'm always late on promoting these things, but I have been invited back to show another El Brendel home movie at the Syracuse Cinephile Society's annual Cinefest film festival. It will be taking place March 13th - 16th and will have TONS of other rare film to show on their screen.

The film I am presenting is another reel from the stash of films I uncovered in 2011. This reel has been marked by El as "gags" and features just that; El performing gags in front of the camera. But there is also a section with behind the scenes footage from "The Beautiful Blonde From Bashful Bend", on the TV show "Cowboy G-Men", and El goofing around with his wife, Flo.
