After four months of idleness, the Ince studio was ready to begin operating again. Under the new contract, Ince's first release was in September 1922: Skin Deep. The story was inspired by the notorious East Side gangster “Monk” Eastman, whose real name was William Delaney. With the resumption of activity at the studio, Ince relied more heavily on other companies' paying for access to his facilities as a vital source of income to split the cost of overheads. This was recorded on a list kept of the movies; number 1 had begun with the signing of the Famous Players–Lasky contract, with 102 movies produced in the three years from 1917 to 1920.
