About This Item

New York: American Inst. Of the City of New York / Doubleday, Doran & Co., 1928. Presentation Copy- tipped in page at front states -"Presented with the Compliments of The American Institute to Will H. Hays on the Occasion of Its Centenary Dinner Grand Ball Room Waldorf Astoria March 21, 1928". Will H. Hays, in addition to authoring the chapter in this book on "Motion Pictures" , also managed Warren G. Harding's successful campaign for the Presidency of the U.S. and was subsequently appointed Postmaster General. After a year in that position, he resigned to become most famously known as the first President of Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA), which under his guidance published a blacklist of actors and workers studios should not hire, inserted moral clauses into actors' contracts, and published an informal list of suggested guidelines for film producers. He was head of MPPDA at the time of this publication. Very Good, lacking the dustjacket, spine titles faded yet still legible, rear hinge cracking. With a foreword by Herbert Hoover, then Secretary of Commerce. . Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket. Presentation Copy.
