The Story

Ben is driving home with his new (used) truck, when he see’s a fuel truck barreling out of Beekman’s diner with people hanging on. After seeing the crash, Ben heads toward the diner for help, only to discover “those things” are everywhere.  At that point, all Ben can think about is getting back to his family. But the siege of undead is not the only obstacle. The times may be a changing, but in some parts of America, not fast enough.

How it became public domain

The first prints of “Night of the Living Dead” didn’t use the title we know it as today. Instead, it referred to the movie as “Night of the Flesh Eaters”, one of the working titles of the movie. However, before release, the title was changed to its more familiar version but, when changing the title card, the distributor forgot to put the copyright notice on the final print.Though that would not be a large issue today (the Copyright Act of 1976 removed all notice requirements), in 1968 that meant the movie was not protected by copyright and, instead, was placed immediately into the public domain.- PT
