I’m a Three Stooges Fan Club member, trying to confirm a personal appearance by the “3” Stooges (Moe Larry and Shemp), on a bill with Wee Bonnie Baker, the Barretts and Don Hooton, after an appearance by the A.B. Marcus Revue. The movie “Queen of Burlesque” was also shown. I have a display ad, but no dates (or town shown). Believe it was the Summer of 1946, and may have been Shemp’s first appearance after Curly’s strokes. The National was advertised as air cooled and showed a phone number of JA-7863.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks Frank Reighter

The National Theatre is located at 524 Oak Street, when it was a single screen theatre it seated 500 people.

I first read about you in American Profile. My wife and I am also from a small Texas town (Luling) where there is an old theatre, but this one had become a factory in 1974. We bought it to save it and it is now an antique mall. We had to spend hundreds of hours cleaning and repairing. I would like to talk to you about the golf and other things you have done. Would you send me your e-mail address? My law practice also has supported what we are doing with the Stanley Theatre.
