Challenge: Oldest still-active movie website?

I was just goofing around this morning, and noticed that the official site of Titanic is still up. I thought this was weird, as the movie was put out so many years ago. http://www.titanicmovie.com

I thought it would be interesting to see if someone could come up with the oldest movie site that's still active. Don't forget to post a link we can take a look at it.

By the way, the reason I came across the Titanic site: I couldn't remember which year Titanic came out. I checked because I was watching an old episode of The Simpsons; specifically, the one where Homer jumps the gorge on Bart's skateboard. While in the air, he yells "I'm the king of the world!", and this episode most definitely pre-dates 1997's Titanic. Cameron lifted a quote from The Simpsons for his fortune-making epic!

BY THE WAY: I'm talking about a website put up specifically for the theatrical release of a movie.

It's funny ... the Titanic website has a QVR tour that you need Quicktime 1.1 to view.

I bet they will use this site to promote the new set coming out this year.
