Organization Banquet of the AMPAS at Hotel Biltmore, LA. Pro-Republican speech by Louis B. Mayer who claims to be the originator of the whole idea of the AMPAS. He claims that the motion picture industry is despised because it is prosperous, and that the East Coast is indifferent to the fate of the West. His speech is followed by the recruitment of subscribers to the new organization, by Mr. Levee. Other speakers reported verbatim include Conrad Nagel, who outlines the relationship between the AMPAS and the MPPDA.
