Really nice to watch. The street scenes are great,....Do you have the original reels and had them digitized?

I have the original reels. The stuff you are seeing here is photographed off a screen. I am in the process of writing out an NFPF grant to preserve these and hopefully make them available to everyone.

Thanks for the praise all. I have 13 works in the show and these are the largest prints I have ever made, 40'' at the longest side. Looks really terrific.

Hi Louie D.,  Sorry to be late to this thread, though  I noticed a guest was looking at this thread you started.  Are the films still viewable somewhere?  I think the original link is down now?  Thanks, Okie

Hi Louie D.!

I sure enjoyed the color Christmas videos of/by El Brendel! Christmas tree tied to the front of the car was great! For some reason by being in color made it seem closer in time to me, though people walking everywhere wearing hats along with the street cars had my time calculations misfiring as well. I also was excited to see the cast all eating together picnic style in Beautiful Blonde from Bashful Bend (and, eating sandwiches!).  Just great!  Thanks for the new links.  What may be next for you and Elmer? Okie
