The American Animal Defense League (AADL) has been waging a propaganda campaign, including billboard announcements, alleging cruel treatment of animals in the movies. Hays is apparently deluged with complaints. Beetson organizes an "investigation" by the L.A.S.P.C.A., which seems to be largely financed and controlled by movie interests, including William S. Hart and Charles Christie.
