Labor - actors

AMPAS economy meetings with actors. Beetson: "The result I gleaned from the conference was that the freelance actor, especially the smaller fellow, does get a pretty raw deal and I am fully convinced that this is so and we certainly will stop it..." He details their labor problems. He also comments of the technicians: "They have come from a place of almost obscurity in this industry to be justly recognized as one of the leading factors."
