    • Abstract:
      The plan of arbitration as it is practiced in the motion picture industry is not satisfactory. A system that provides that in order to secure pictures, because of the fact that all of the major and many minor producers use the same form of contract providing for arbitration, an exhibitor must renounce his day in court and submit to arbitration, by a board consisting of 6 interested parties, does not in practice move toward the securing of equity and justice. Under the present system, the 3 distributor members of the board are under direct responsibility to protect interests of producers who are paying their salaries.
