  • Looking for some old, obscure UK & Spanish film titles

    [h=2][/h] Hello, I am working on a feature film and we hope to feature clips from old Spanish films shot in Ibiza. I am struggling to find master or viewing copies for the following titles and am wondering if anyone could suggest anywhere else I could try. I've tried BFI and EGEDA, Valencia Film Lib and Filmoteca in Spain. All licensing leads are dead and all associated production companies are defunct or the rights aren't with them anymore.

    * La Ley Del Mar (1952) - dir: Miguel Iglesias (Spanish)
    * The Story of Christopher Columbus (1948) - [URL=""][/URL] (British) - Encylopedia Britannica looking into holdings
    * Dawn of America (1951) - dir: Juan De Ordura (Spanish)

    If anyone knows of any other film forums in Spain or places to suggest I would be really grateful, thanks.

    Please don’t ask the same thing in multiple forums. It’s enough to ask it here.

    Although I would also query about the wisdom of asking about Spanish films in the BRITfilm forum

        Hi Doc Robert Popper - thank you! I have actually tracked down the licence holder for The Story of CC since, based in the US.
