We have The Tin Drum. I left it OUT of the current catalogue because I
thought we were losing it but it is safe & Sound
While the French will never admit it Smiling Madame Beudet would be PD
in the United States but ONLY if it were a US copy. US copyright does not
extend beyond 1923. However if the copy you can get was produced outside the
US or has an added element like a special soundtrack it could be copyrighted
on " special contents"

I think Olympia is still owned by Janus which would mean that Cowboy might
have a print and could license a video but you would have to check
with them 212-929-4200 & ask for Jeff
