A dead end in my quest for the movie "Sand"


Recommended Posts

In 1949 a movie called "Sand" was filmed in Colorado.

It was about a show horse that escapes into the wilderness fighting off mountain lions and such.

Corny but it received an Academy Award nomination for cinematography.

 

Three years ago I founded the Silverton Western Movie Festival here in Colorado, showcasing some of the movies filmed in the area.

This one I cannot get.

It was distributed by 20th Century Fox. A copy is in the UCLA vault.

 

But I am at a total dead end in terms of rights and getting a DVD made for my Western Movie Festival.

I cannot even determine who has the rights to the film.

 

20th Century Fox does not have the rights (apparently owing to a Supreme Court case in the early 1990s).

UCLA does not have authority to make a DVD.

 

A copyright research firm offered to do a report for $800 but that would likely still leave me in limbo.

Any suggestions?

 

(At this point I will take a bootleg copy).
