Zierler case

Zierler's case provides a good example of a small independent exhibitor shut out of the industry through lack of access to studio products. He has just refitted a movie theatre, but the only company which will deal with him is U.A. In this and other correspondence he appeals to Hays and Pettijohn for relief, and they do approach studios on his behalf, but it appears that they are powerless to assist him.
