Title
The Fellows Who Dress the Pictures: Montreal Film Exhibitors in the Arts of Verical Integration (1912-1952)
Abstract
The author argues that, partly as a result of the difficult conditions prevailing in the city, where sizeable Francophone, Anglophone, and immigrant populations mingled, and where cinema had many powerful opponents, Montreal movie exhibitors were granted a significant degree of control over their bookings by the heads of the Toronto and New York-based theatre chains.
