Sorry but that is a little mixed up. The only PD Capra film is IT"S A
WONDERFUL LIFE, because it was originally released by an indepedent
company. Actually this film is has been re-copywrited useing underlying
literary rights. Most silents ARE COPYwrited, provideing they are from not
older than 75 years and were released by a major studio. There are many PD
silents,however most signicant films of CHaplin, Keaton, Chaney, Garbo etc
are still under copywrite.You really have to check title by title
