From aboard the IMDboat at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Smith talks to the cast of "Teen Wolf" about the solemn yet celebratory panel for the upcoming season. This news and more in our Guide to Comic-Con.
El Brendel is taken for the heir to a still. Can he survive being married to Marion Martin in the middle of the feud between the Hatracks and McKuens in this frantic Columbia short? I hope not. Although El Brendel had a long career in the movies, from a major supporting role in WINGS through the 1960s, I am never amused by his baby-faced Scowhegian dullard act. The short is filled out with old Sennett comedy pros, from Hank Mann to Louise Carver and with newcomers like Hank Worden -- best remembered for his roles in John Ford westerns. However writer Elwood Ullman and Harry Edwards have thrown in so many absurd and unrelated comedy bits, including hens that eat gunpowder and lay eggs that explode like grenades that director Del Lord can't do much with the film but keep things moving as fast as he can.
