Motion Picture Code of Fair Competition
Comments:
Additional text in transcription. EDITORIAL COMMENT: This is probably as close to the central truth of the industry's trade relations as we will find - clearly putting the MPPDA in the middle, of attempting to regulate an industry whose major concerns operated in terms of their own short-term benefit, without regard to the long-term harmony of the industry -- and do so on the advice of their lawyers and against the advice of the MPPDA. This is a running story, not one in any sense ended by the implementation of the Code.

"Trade Relations in the Motion Picture Industry". Important document dealing with nearly all issues: block booking, overbuying, double features, standard exhibition contract, designated play dates, admission prices, the forced buying of unwanted shorts, non-theatrical competition and the score charge.
