Correspondence about an article on 'The Authors' League Agreement with the Motion Picture Producers," to be published under Owen Davis name but written by MPPDA staff (probably Wilstach or Trotti). This attempts to correct the misconception that "Hollywood studios in order to deceive their own association have been surreptitiously screen objectionable books and plays under new names." Also included is an extensive list of books and plays released under new names in 1928.
