THE NEW YORK TIMES, section 8 only, February 15, 1931
* Print of Ted Healy of The Three Stooges fame
The front page of this "Screen--Art" section of this Sunday newspaper (Section 8) features an uncommonly large illustration which features both Ted Healy and Basil Rathbone. The caption reads: "Those somewhat different actors, Ted Healy and Basil Rathbone. Mr. Healy will be head comic of 'The Gang's All Here' which will set up shop Wednesday night at the Imperial Theatre, while Mr. Rathbone will be important to 'Heat Wave', the English play arriving Tuesday at the Fulton."
The same page has some brief descriptive remarks on both plays (see photos).
Ted Healy is credited by many with founding "The Three Stooges" but would meet with a somewhat mysterious death just 6 years later. Basil Rathbone would come to greater fame playing Sherlock Holmes in the series of films based on the British detective.
Complete section 8 only with all 20 pages, rag edition, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
