Maurer filled out this document to calculate his 1968 dues for the Directors Guild of America, which were based on his earnings as a producer or director. Maurer states that he earned $595.36 in 1967 but estimated that he would receive nothing in 1968. That year, he produced and directed The Star-Spangled Salesman (1968). Maurer (1926-1986), became the son-in-law of the Three Stooges' Moe Howard in 1947 and went on to become deeply involved in the trio's later career. He wrote, illustrated and edited several Three Stooges comic books at Jubilee (where friend and future comic book legend Joe Kubert) was an editor. (They later invented the first 3-D comic book) Maurer later became the Stooge's manager and a producer and director on several of their late movies, including The Three Stooges Meet Hercules (1962), The Three Stooges in Orbit (1962), The Three Stooges Go Around the World in a Daze (1963), The Outlaws is Coming (1965) and their final film Kooks Tour (1970). Maurer went on to become a writer and story editor for Hanna-Barbera's animated cartoons in the 1970s and 1980s (including The Robonic Stooges, 1978) and helped develop the "CineMagic" process, a faux-3D red tinting, for The Angry Red Planet (1959). His sons Michael Maurer and Jeffrey Scott became highly involved in kids' cartoons, as well. Lightly creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
