Video clip from humorous 1930's SF journey-to-Mars musical film Just Imagine, starring El Brendel and Maureen O'Sullivan

Here’s a beautiful lobby card and fabulous video clip from Just Imagine (1930), a humorous science fiction musical film in which a man, struck by lightening, wakes up in the year 1980, where people have arranged marriages, pills instead of food, numbers instead of names, and vending machine babies. Perhaps best known for its portrayal of a futuristic New York City, the film also involves a hilarious journey to the fourth planet. Starring the comical El Brendel as Single O, the time traveler struck by lightning; John Garrick as J-21, a man who must convince a tribunal to approve his marriage to the lovely LN-18, played by Maureen O'Sullivan; and Joyzelle Joyner as Loo-Loo, queen of the dancing Martians.
