They may have turned prints over but it is unlikely they could or would have
turned rights over. Harvard can tell you for sure but since I know that
various other former Grove Press titles are most definitely not controlled
by Harvard I would doubt these would be. Grove would have had to owned the
film outright for this and this is possible but very unusual particularly
on a feature film.
