Dear Jessica, et al,

A university librarian from Canada sent me a 2-part re: public domain =
(first part was whether a print source listing titles existed, and I =
refered her to the o.p. "Film Superlist". If someone knows of a more =
current source, please let me know). The second question concerned =
Hitchcock's "Sabotage," which the librarian understood to be in the =
public domain, but that a local company wants to charge the library for =
a 3-yr. public performance lease. I know that p.d. status can change =
(especially on elements-added silent films), but I'm unfamiliar with any =
special circumstances re: "Sabotage." So, what does the think tank think =
:) ?
