ARCHIE L. MAYO
Three Stooges producer and manager Norman Maurer signed this document in 1968 to calculate his dues for the Director's Guild of America.
Document signed "Archie L. Mayo" in blue ink. Blue and black ink notations in unknown hand and black ink stamps. 1 page, 8½x11, front and verso. March 25, 1965. Mayo filled out this document to calculate his 196 dues for the Directors Guild of America, which were based on his earnings as a producer or director. Maurer states that he earned nothing in 1964 and estimated that he would earn the same in 1965. Maurer's last film credit of any kind was as writer and producer on The Beast of Budapest (1958), made 12 years after his retirement in 1946. American director Mayo (1891-1968), born Archibald L. Mayo, was a stage actor who cut his teeth on 2-reel comedies during the late 1910s and moved on to features in 1926, around the advent of sound. He had over 80 movies and short subjects between 1917 and 1958, including The Petrified Forest (1936), the World War II submarine actioner Crash Dive (1942) and the Marx Brothers film A Night in Casablanca (1946). Remarkably ego-free in his movies (although he reportedly became a terror on the set in his later years), Mayo prefered to have his actors carry the film rather than branding his movies with any distinct directing style. And he worked with some good actors, like John Barrymore (Svengali, 1931), Mae West (Night After Night, 1932), James Cagney (The Mayor of Hell (1933), Bette Davis (Bordertown, 1935) and Paul Muni (Angel on My Shoulder). Lightly creased. Folded in ninths and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
