Then why comment on something you know absolutely nothing about?

Read between the lines, Louie. I've seen all of Henie's mediocre musicals along with the 3rd rate comics that occasionally appear in them.

(See if you can guess who I am referring to...)

Hey I take exception to that, Gary.

For third rate comics appearing in Fox musicals you've got to look to Mitchell and Durant.

El is merely second rate.

This also raises the question of how a performer in a major motion picture can do a musical number with the star and not have a credit anywhere?? I imagine there would be documentation in the MGM records ... ?


Well, El Brendel was in the 1938 film "Happy Landing" with Sonja Henie and never got a film credit:

*******************************************************************************************************************************************

I think his appearance in the Henie film would be classified as a "cameo," since he was already an established personality ... So to speak.

The fact that IMDB doesn't recognize that an uncredited actor's name doesn't appear on their web site, the same way some actors names are mistaken for others on their web site, is no surprise and makes me appreciate this forum all the more! Thanks for the help.

And that was cool; whoever placed a link to this thread on the TCM web site! Maybe a few more people will now know who Doris McMahon is! I didn't!
