In the final two years of Thomas Ince's career, First National was to become steadily less central, only one among several distribution outlets. One of the key concessions as a result of the litigation between Ince and First National was that, while he maintained his output for them, additional movies, boasting his name, could be released through other concerns after March 1, 1923. Ince contracted with a number of companies to bring his product to theaters, finding commercial success with special arrangements with specific distributors, based on star quality, budget, or content. This became official policy at the board meeting of December 28, 1922; Clark Thomas had already begun an arrangement for Soul of the Beast with Metro, the company having also distributed J. Parker Read's His Own Law, starring Hobart Bosworth and now owned by Ince.
