This has aired on TCM multiple times.

 

I think it ran into problems again and now TCM is not allowed to air it. 

 

FIT TO PRINT - An American made documentary film about the continuing crisis within the U.S. newspaper industry and its impact on investigative reporting. The film includes interviews with reporters, staff and media members within several U.S. newspapers including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times.

 

Never heard of this one, Marsha. Why is it being kept from viewers?

I hadn't heard about that. I had read about the movie for years, and knew of it being a "hidden" movie, so I jumped at the chance to record when TCM showed it a couple of years ago. I know they showed it at least once more, but I hadn't heard about it running into trouble again. Do you have any info on that? I looked on the IMDb page and didn't see anything about it.

It has only aired once on TCM-- January 4, 2015. Over the years it has had a few special screenings at festivals, and there was an illegal copy that was posted on YouTube (and quickly removed). It has also been broadcast on European cable channels.

 

It was scheduled on TCM for another airing on 2015 but pulled at the last minute. And it has never been rescheduled. I believe there are still "unspecified legal difficulties" to borrow from a phrase appearing on the film's wiki page.

Thanks for mentioning Corman and Wood. Certainly independent filmmakers (in more ways than one).

INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS

 

...and many other B horrors

 

It occurs to me that there were independent producers like Edward Small and the King brothers who made films and released them through United Artists in the 50s.
