Long Description:

ADVERTISING. 1924. Famous Players-Lasky Corporation Interoffice Communication. Date "October 8, 1924. To Publicity Department: Members of the Publicity Department will please observe the following rules in the production and distribution of all Paramount publicity: 1. Do not issue any information on the cost of pictures, sets or costumes or on salaries paid to players or directors. 2. Do not issue or take any photographs of nude or partly nude women. 3. Do not issue any photographs or any information about scenes showing the use of liquor or the display of liquor containers. A motion picture may contain a scene showing people consuming liquor and be perfectly harmless, but when this scene is taken out of its atmosphere and shown alone it can be an affront to a great many people. 4. Do not issue or take any photographs showing the use of firearms. 5. Do not issue any information regarding the receipts of pictures at theatres. CHARLES E. MCCARTHY
