2019 update: this list has not yet been updated with most of the 1923 films that just became public domain. See the comments below for a list of those films. Let me know if you find them!
Free movies, y'all! These are in the public domain because:
- the copyright expired
- the copyright owner failed to renew
- the copyright owner intentionally released it under the public domain, just to be awesome
This list is a work in progress. I am occasionally adding links to Archive.org and other sites. Anything without a link is from publicdomainmovie.net, and you can find it by googling "[movie title] site:publicdomainmovie.net". I'm still working on adding all the animated films from that site.…
