The Three Stooges Meet the Son of Dracula, a 5-page feature of The Three Stooges, and particularly Comedy III. Providing a brief history of the comedy team, the article then delves into the activities and business models of C3, beginning with the DeRita & Fine vs. Howard lawsuit of 1994. Legal counsel Bela Lugosi Jr. [who BTW, left C3 in 1999] is the focal point of a project that was intended by C3 as a PR piece for themselves, but the author also addresses fan-animosity generated by C3.

During much of the Chicago run of A NIGHT IN SPAIN at the 4 Cohan's Grand Opera House, Nov. 28, 1927 - Apr. 7, 1928, Ted & Betty Healy also starred in a nightclub act at the Hotel Sherman's College Inn.  Apparently they would finish up each night's SPAIN performance at the Cohan, and rush to the College Inn for a late evening show.  "The Playgoer," for all subject shows running in Chicago during this period, frequently carried advertisements for the Healys' song-&-dance act.  The pictured magazine is from the week of March 26, 1928 issue for the play GOOD NEWS.

Healy's A NIGHT IN SPAIN stooges in Chicago were Shemp Howard, Sam 'Moody' Braun, Bobby Pinkus and Lou Warren.  It is not believed that they made appearances with Ted & Betty at the College Inn.  While it is possible, no documentation has turned up to support that.

The satirical magazine featured a classic shot of the Stooges (from SWING PARADE OF 1946), photo-shopped to lampoon Bill Clinton and 1996 Republican hopefuls Bob Dole and Newt Gingrich. Strangely, there is no article within the magazine that matches the cover, which apparently was intended as a stand-alone joke with the caption Stooges Rule '96.

A second photo of Moe, Larry and Curly (from RHYTHM AND WEEP) appears on page 6's Editorial Nyuk-Nyuk-Nyuk, promoting articles that do appear within the magazine; again, strangely, the photo does not tie into the Editorial's content, just the title.
