  1. If you only watch one El Brendel movie, watch Just Imagine from 1930. It's a scifi movie set in the distant future... of 1980!

    Brendel plays a man brought back to life and so provides the fish-out-of-water humor in a movie with a very bizarre plot -- Brendel stows away on the first manned mission to Mars and saves the mission (and our hero) along the way. The movie also stars Maureen O'Sullivan two years before she played Jane in the first of the Tarzan movies.
