An example of the kind of dissatisfaction produced by the present exhibition contract. This exhibitor finds himself stuck with an unsatisfactory contract with Film Box Office (FBO): "In my judgement it is plain malicious dishonesty, and a violation of the laws of commerce, which requires the manufacturers to deliver the standard of product they sold instead of panning off a much inferior quality."
