Ahhhh, the Public Domain. Final resting place for the unwanted, unwatchable films of yesteryear to gather and be forgotten. Not so. This week we spend some time defining the public domain and giving a brief recap of the process through which a property can fall into public ownership, before exploring some of the catalogue that exists and are worth your time. The beauty of this category of film is that with unrestricted access, most are easily obtainable to view for free and many are worthy of attention.
The list goes far beyond Night of the Living Dead although admittedly the gems are exceedingly rare. We offer up our thoughts on why public domain is an important and worthwhile resource particularly for those with an interest in the classics. Check out this site for a free guide to public domain legalities.
With Anthony back in the fray, we must revisit a favorite subject of ours – Michael Jackson. This time we remember back to the MJ and Lisa Marie Presley appearance at the 1994 MTV music awards.
Special thanks to Michael McCormack for the fantastic original theme music, check out more of his work at www.michaelmccormackmusic.com.
