A small rider stapled to page 14 notes, “It is agreed that the said McFarland, upon the termination of this agreement, shall have the right to retain and use the nickname ‘Spanky’ which has been applied to him during his employment with the Studio."

Re: What Entertainment Workers Got Paid- Check+Contract Imag

Gee, all I was doing was getting the amounts from the gossip and trade publications of the time. Stars got some serious cash even during the Depression (Constance Bennett being notable for some reason), and featured players didn't do badly, either. Nice to see some agreements.

CHECK AND CONTRACT IMAGES OF DECEASED FILM WORKERS
Thanks for all the cool images!
That Shemp Howard paycheck is dated May 10, 1947. That was a Saturday.
I thought I'd try to figure out exactly which film for Columbia Pictures he was working on and being paid for that week. It turns out he wasn't actively filming during the week ending the 10th. I don't know details on how or when they paid their employees, but for the record, here's what Shemp was doing during the previous few weeks and following couple months after May 10.
April 1 through 4, 1947 - Filming Three Stooges short SING A SONG OF SIX PANTS.
April 22 through 25, 1947 - Filming ALL GUMMED UP.
May 19 through 21, 1947 - Filming PARDON MY CLUTCH.
May 26 through 29, 1947 - Filming FIDDLERS THREE.
June 23 through June 26, 1947 - Filming HEAVENLY DAZE.
July 28 through 31, 1947 - Filming I'M A MONKEY'S UNCLE.

The check being dated May 10, maybe it was for pre-production meetings for the short PARDON MY SCOTCH.

Fascinating material! I'm assuming that Warner Oland was working on CC AT THE OLYMPICS during the first quarter of 1937. If I read that correctly it appears he made $5,000 for six hours work on two dates, and over $9,000 for 11 hours work.
