Last night I attended a special screening of Alien on the 39th anniversary of it’s release. In attendance was legendary actress Veronica Cartwright who played Lambert in the film and also starred in many others such as The Right Stuff and Hitchcock’s The Birds. Here are my photos from the event.

My inspiration came from What’s the Mashup? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmnSm…) but I didn’t manage 100! The idea was to do the same for movies from the Golden Age – meaning no title later than 1953 (although there is one at the end.) Oh, and none of these clips was sped up or slowed down.
If you like the clips, go buy the movies on DVD! And the song on Google Play or iTunes!
And thanks also to IMDB, clipconverter.cc and Nero Video.

It’s A Wonderful Life has become a holiday tradition bolstered by near constant plays on television as the film fell into the public domain in 1975. But in the 90s, a studio would regain control over the film and put copyright to the test.
Under the law that existed until 1978 . . . Works from 1958
The films Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Gigi, the books Things Fall Apart, Our Man in Havana, and The Once and Future King, great music, and more. . .
Current US law extends copyright for 70 years after the date of the author’s death, and corporate “works-for-hire” are copyrighted for 95 years after publication. But prior to the 1976 Copyright Act (which became effective in 1978), the maximum copyright term was 56 years—an initial term of 28 years, renewable for another 28 years. Under those laws, works published in 1958 would enter the public domain on January 1, 2015, where they would be “free as the air to common use.” Under current copyright law, we’ll have to wait until 2054.1 And no published works will enter our public domain until 2019. The laws in other countries are different—thousands of works are entering the public domain in Canada and the EU on January 1.
