This is a list of films that certain cited sources believe are in the public domain in the United Statesmarker. Being in the public domain refers to cinematic, dramatic, literary, musical and artistic works that no government, organization, or individual owns, and as such is common property.

Elements of public domain

There is no official list of films (or other works) in the public domain. It is more difficult to determine the public domain status of film than for any other media because a film can incorporate any or all of the following:

  • Cinematography
  • Drama
  • Literature
  • Music
  • Art
  • Trademark


Film copyright is actually a “package” of rights. A film can lose its copyright in some of those rights while retaining copyright in other rights. Expert attorneys in the field of public domain sometimes differ in their opinions as to whether a particular film is in the public domain.

Judicial interpretation of public domain

Judges, too, differ in their interpretation of the laws governing copyright protection. The United States is a “patchwork quilt” of inconsistent copyright rules in different federal judicial districts. The courts of one jurisdiction are not obliged to follow the decisions of another. The U.S. Supreme Court (which could resolve those inconsistencies) very seldom decides copyright cases, and then only when an important principle is involved.

Documenting public domain status

If a film appears on the list below, there is a high probability it has lost some or all of its United States copyright protection.

There is no single method for determining if a film, or parts of it, is in the public domain. There are several methods that can be used to document a film’s public domain status. These include the following—

Determine copyright registration

Motion picture copyright registrations prior to 1978 were published in semi-annual Copyright Catalogs. The Library of Congress also published cumulative Copyright Catalogs of motion picture registrations for the periods
  • 1894-1912
  • 1912-1939
  • 1940-1949
  • 1950-1959
  • 1960-1969


All are out of print. There is no cumulative Copyright Catalog for 1970-1977; the Copyright Office published 16 semi-annual Copyright Catalog booklets covering that eight-year period, but all are out of print and extremely rare. All copyright registrations from 1978 onward are online at the Library of Congress website.

Some films listed on this page were not registered, but it is unwise to presume an unregistered film is entirely copyright free without doing further research. For example, This Is the Army had no copyright registration, but it is a musical with several Irving Berlin songs, all of which were registered for copyright and renewed. The movie is shown on Turner Classic Movies, presumably with permission from the Berlin estate.

Some decades of The American Film Institute Catalog of Motion Pictures include copyright registration information for feature films (not shorts) of United States origin. This can include a statement that research failed to disclose copyright registration for a particular film. Copyright registration information is given in the following:

  • The American Film Institute Catalog of Motion Pictures, 1931-1940; ISBN 0913616001
  • The American Film Institute Catalog of Motion Pictures, 1941-1950; ISBN 0913616397


The United States copyright website catalogs all the works prior to 1978 that have been renewed.Several pieces of work have been renewed in the form of collections, thus giving the collection as a whole copyright protection.

Copyright renewal status

For films registered in 1923-1963 inclusive, it is essential to know the renewal status. The semi-annual Copyright Catalog booklets have virtually complete (at least 99.99%) lists of renewals for the films registered 28 years earlier. Those semi-annual booklets all are out of print. However, there are reference books (see References below) that match copyright renewals with earlier registrations. In 1992, Congress changed the copyright law to make renewal automatic for copyrights registered in 1964 and later.

Underlying rights

Many of the movies listed below are based on plays, novels, magazine stories or a combination of those sources. In some cases, a film’s copyright has lapsed because of non-renewal while the underlying literary or dramatic source is still protected by copyright. For, example the movie His Girl Friday (1941), on the list below as a “public domain” film, is based on the 1928 play The Front Page, which is protected by copyright.
