Hi everyone. I need help from you guys.
I'm putting together a project in Portugal for TV and for that, i need to find as many PUBLIC DOMAIN movies ON DVD as i can. I've only found a few of them... one here one there.
Does anybody know where (online) i can find more titles? It doesn't matter if it's a good movie or a bad movie, spoken in english or any other language on earth. The only thing requested is to be on DVD and with a public domain status. If someone could provide a list, that would be very helpful.

Thank you in advance.

Ricardo

This site specializes in public domain titles, and on the bottom of their home page you can click for a list of public domain titles:

P.S. - Never heard of these people, but found them through a simple Google search.

Hope this helps....

Thanks Marty!
That's funny. I've already done dozens of searches on Google and other search engines and never came up with that site! That was helpful.

Nothing more or less than a bootleger. "Asian Errors" indeed! The films Listed under Public Domain are questionable; but some may be.

a better source is http://www.retrofilm.com/

even these can't be trusted, a lot of the films here are not public domain, but instead were not expressly copyright registered; This also only applies to the US. I would use this as a reference source, then do a search on the titles for DVDs.

Remember that even if a film is public domain. A particular presentation is NOT. You can copyright the menu structure, and the restored elements.
