Actually suppliers such as this are a dime-a-dozen, and rarely a reliable
source for public domain information. I spotted a few questionable titles
such as Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (also licensed by 20th Century Fox)
and Dementia 13 (licensed by MGM).
In short, there's no reliable all-in-one resource for such information.
Even the rights holders themselves are often unclear about the status until
they're forced to yank contracts out of filing cabinets.
