At the Committee meeting the question of block booking was raised. Members were assured that it was dying out. "Recently several of the larger production companies had signified their intention of repealing the block-booking system. However, under this new plan it will still be necessary to recognize and adhere to the prior schedule of the picture."Concern about immoral and indecent German and Austrian motion pictures which are believed to be flooding the market which furnishes amusement reels to lower East side theatres. 4 film synopses.
