Dear Patti,

Castle Films was purchased by Universal in the 1940s and although some of
their films are public domain, many remain owned by Universal. I would check
on the AMIA listserv if any of these are rare or unusual - I kind of doubt it.

<< Dear experts,

A townsperson wishes to donate three 16mm films to our library IF we
transfer them to video for her. Two are newsreels from 1948 and the other
is titled, "Invasion of Africa" (1940s) all three are from Castle Film
Company. Does anyone know if this company was bought out or evolved into
something else? I'd like to obtain permission to change the format.

Thanks, Patti
