About This Item

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1935. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR on front endpage -"To Will Hays from his friend Ogden L. Mills". Ogden Mills served as United States Secretary of the Treasury in President Herbert Hoover's cabinet. After leaving the Treasury Department, Mills was highly critical of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal policies. Will Hays managed Warren G. Hardings 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. When the Catholic Church formed its Legion of Decency and threatened nationwide boycotts of movies, Hays installed a more formal production code, called the Hays Code( later simply "The Code"), which became the virtual law of Hollywood until the 1960s. A quite interesting Association Copy ! Book is Near Fine, spine lettering a bit dulled, in a Very Good dustjacket (and SCARCE THUS), a bit rubbed along the fore edge of the front panel and with 1/4" paper loss at head of spine. . SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR. First Edition. Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. Association Copy.
