Learning from the initial experiences of distribution beyond First National with Metro and Film Booking Offices (FBO), Thomas Ince shifted further toward distribution that offered possibilities for handling a variety of movies. Movies rolled off the lot under his supervision at a dizzying rate, and the remainder of 1924 was a time of frenetic activity. He continued to have close but uncredited creative and financial input on many films made at the studio, but he was increasingly selective as to which of the movies carried the prestige of the Ince name. Six Ince specials were to be delivered to First National, and there were four Charles Ray movies for Pathé, nine “smaller” productions for Hodkinson's Producers Distributing Corporation, and one Mrs. Reid film for FBO. In addition to this product of his own, three independent units had signed to produce four movies each on the lot, assuring a year of unprecedented activity.
