Even with the releases through Metro and Film Booking Offices, in addition to First National, keeping the lot busy on a rental basis and collecting the payments due remained Ince's primary concern. In June 1923, the assignments of Beck's Baird productions The Destroying Angel and The Miracle Makers were made to the Bank of Italy for a $90,000 loan to the Ince Corp. The prior Beck movies Is Divorce a Failure?, Don't Doubt Your Wife, When Husbands Deceive, and When the Devil Drives were assigned to the Commercial National Bank as security for the notes received from Beck and endorsed by the Ince Corp. By the end of 1923, profound changes were under way throughout the Ince corporation. These took place against the backdrop of an industry panic that caused a number of companies to intimate that they would curb production radically, with Famous Players–Lasky closing its Astoria and Los Angeles studios until the spring.
