    Help RubeMom find this movie - "El Danubio Azul"

    Apparently, there was a old movie that was translated to Spanish and ended up with the name "El Danubio Azul". When I google, all I can find is a musical piece from Germany, who's translation is also "El Danubio Azul". The original German waltz, titled "An der schönen blauen Donau", was composed by Johann Strauss II, back in 1867.

    The musical piece was also used in the 1961 movie "2001: A Space Odyssey". But I'm pretty that is NOT the movie my mom is talking about. :\



    PS: Mom said it was NOT a silent movie, but it was black and white, NOT cartoons. IMDB says it should be this: The Blue Danube - 1932 ... still not an inch closer to procure a copy. Should something so old be public domain?

    A lot of old movies get lost.

    I read an article just the other day about how poorly and hap-haphazardly films were stored and cared for.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    The fact that they were printed on something perishable and flammable is not helping matters.

    Add that to the fact that as far as the distributing studios were concerned (this was in the days way before TV and videos) they were of negligible value after their run was over. Why pay to store the negatives?

    Worse still, a lot of studios reused film to produce newer things. I remember seeing something about Monty Python having to save their original films from being reused.

    ...interesting in that it appears to be a French remake of the original. Impressive media finding skills.

    About the public domain status, I get this on wiki:

    "All motion pictures made and exhibited before 1923 are indisputably in the public domain in the United States. Before the passage of the Copyright Term Extension Act (CTEA) in 1998, the term of copyright in the U.S. was a maximum of 75 years, with the work entering the public domain on January 1 of the 76th year from creation (so, for example, a film made in 1930 whose copyright was properly registered and renewed would enter the public domain on January 1, 2006). Although the CTEA added 20 years to the terms of all existing copyrights, it explicitly refused to revive any copyrights that had expired prior to its passage."

    Hence, The Blue Danube of 1932 has been public domain for a few years now... I continue looking around.
