In what proved to be a landmark case, de Havilland successfully challenged the studio practice of extending long-term talent contracts by tacking on suspension time. This decision and subsequent establishment of the "De Havilland Law" greatly reduced the power wielded by the Hollywood film studios.
Photograph caption dated November 5, 1943 reads, "Tells story of repeated suspensions by studio."
