In cases like this the rights generally revert back to the overseas producer
so unless you want to spend a lot of time and most likely money, you are not
going to get PPR on this. Sadly what happens more and more these days is
that when a film like this expires from its original distributor who had
non-theatrical rights which would have included PPR, the film is eventually
resold but ONLY for home video/dvd rights. For instance the company Anchor
Bay has terrific titles most of which used to have distribution in film BUT
they don't obtain PPR rights so if you want to license any of their British
classics or foreign films you would have to track them back to the
producers. Sadly there is little you can do about it.
If you are REALL committed to getting PPR , you probably can but it just
will take A LOT OF WORK and in many cases a LOT of money.

Sorry
