While I'd hate to cost you several days of writing, I would be fascinated to hear you expound on this topic . . .I gather that Disney has spearheaded changes to copyright law in order to hold onto Mickey Mouse et al but I'd never heard about the rights saga of It's a Wonderful Life until reading this very informative thread. I've definitely never heard of a film going p.d. and then being "re-claimed" ! IAWL is hardly the only p.d. fil
  4. Great stuff, LonesomePolecat. (I assume he's named "Harpo" because he plays the harp and never talks ?) Cats in the movies have traditionally gotten a bad rap -- too often cast as villains like Mr. Fluffy-poo in The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957) the[/i]Incredible-Shrinking-Mancatindoorwaylarge.png] If big cats count, two of my favorites as a kid were Clarence, the Cross-Eyed Lion (1965) . . . . . . and Elsa the lioness in Born Free (1966). Another of my favorite cats (though only on TV, the feature-length movie featured Lee Merriweather).

  10. TomJH, If you've not already seen it, you might enjoy a fairly in-depth blogppost called "Errol Flynn: A Colourful Fragment in a Drab World" by Matthew Coniam at Movietone News: http://www.movietone-news.com/2011/02/errol-flynn-colourful-fragment-in-drab.html In light of your considerable knowledge about Flynn, I'd be curious to hear any opinions you'd care to share about it. > TomJH said: Perhaps even more than his films, I think that Flynn would have been knocked out by the fact that his autobiography is still on sale.

  15. MaxvonMayerling, Thank YOU for all these amazing posters !! Haven't worked my way through this whole thread yet and so hope I'm not posting any repeats. One of my favorites, from 1923:
