Contracts, undertakings, responsibilities¬the volatile world of entertainment is full of agreements, written and unwritten. What are the rights of the parties ? Can the writer withhold his script ? May the cast withdraw from their employment ? What are the duties of the management ?

Show Business and the Law explains, simply and straightforwardly, the law as it affects all concerned. Theatres and plays, cinemas and film-making, circuses and performing animals, TV and radio-all are dealt with. Opening with the birth of the show it proceeds from the script, through the engagement of the cast, to the performance, and completes its review with a statement of the responsibilities of the management.

The book is practical. It is easy to understand. It covers the whole field, yet is easy to refer to. It will save endless argument, and point the solution of disputes. It is a handy book covering the whole field of entertainment.
