Postal rules and regulations fell by the wayside for these booklet stamps.  Not only is the designer’s name, famous caricaturist Albert Hirschfeld, prominently displayed on the cover of the booklet, but the rule against secret marks in stamp artwork was waived for him.  He was allowed to continue his practice of incorporating his daughter’s name, “Nina,” somewhere in each of his drawings. 
 
Laurel & Hardy and Abbott & Costello, as well as Benny and Bergen, have been seen by millions on the big screen and television.   Fanny Brice was one of the Performers in the famous Ziegfeld Follies and was the main character of the biographical movie “Funny Girl.”
