Republic Pictures Corporation Library
with Copyrights and Renewals

 

 

Presented is an inventory of the Republic Pictures library, as published in a company document dated April 6, 1994. Non-Republic feature films from the company’s predecessor, National Telefilm Associates, are excluded but were part of the original document, which encompassed almost 1,500 permanent features; another 300 were under lease.

The first list herein is specific to American theatrical features produced and/or released by the company between 1935–1959. Foreign features and serials are listed separately.

With the creation of Republic in 1935, absorbing Monogram Pictures Corp., Mascot Pictures Corp., Liberty Pictures Corp., Majestic Pictures Corp., and Select Productions, Inc., some sources erroneously list titles being distributed by Republic, assuming all the companies became one and the same.

Monogram’s 33 national distribution exchanges remained relatively the same except for the new name of Republic. But due to existing deals with independent state rights exchanges, Mascot, Liberty, and Majestic were obligated to continue their identities for a short time to fulfill commitments to their franchise holders.

The last picture made under the Monogram banner, “Cheers of the Crowd,” began production in late May 1935. However, Mascot, brought into the Republic setup in early June 1935, had a five-picture commitment with its exchanges, after which it would permanently drop its name and distribute under the Republic banner.

Mascot would begin production of its last serial, “The Fighting Marines,” in late September 1935, and its last feature, at the Talisman Studios, “Doughnuts and Society,” in early February 1936. These were made even though the company had officially started its production schedule under the Republic name at the Mascot Studios in early July 1935.

Mascot’s four-stage studio in North Hollywood, previously leased, was purchased by the company in early 1935 in a bankruptcy sale of the Mack Sennett estate, becoming the official home of Republic in October 1935. Monogram, working out of the RKO Pathé lot at the time, did not have its own studio, nor did Liberty and Majestic.

Titles copyrighted by Mascot during this transitioning period, albeit few, are excluded like those of Monogram.

Liberty’s last-produced picture, “Born to Gamble,” completed in early June 1935, is excluded too since it was copyrighted by the company, which handled distribution—like Mascot—through most of its own franchised exchanges.

The film carried the Liberty name on its print and advertising material, but was released by Republic in their newly opened New York exchange as were some Mascot titles. A few other Republic exchanges handled the film also.

“The Crime of Doctor Crespi” is included because Republic also copyrighted the film at the same time as Liberty—mistakenly according to Republic—and handled its release. The film was not made by Liberty in the first place, since it was produced independently in September 1934 at the Biograph Studios, New York.

After “Born to Gamble,” Liberty’s president, M.H. Hoffman, would briefly become a unit producer for Republic and Columbia. In 1939 Liberty’s small library of 12 features—including the aforementioned film—was acquired by Consolidated Film Industries and then by Republic, its corporate cousin.

Mascot’s existing library of 19 features and 20 serials was sold in 1945 to International Theatrical and Television Corp., through negotiations with Nat Levine and Consolidated Film Industries. Levine, who founded Mascot in 1927, had resigned the presidency of Republic in early 1937.

Mascot, Liberty and Majestic were all financed by Consolidated Film Industries, which ended up owning a stake in their film libraries except the latter, but no titles would be in the Republic library itself. Monogram, too, was financed by Consolidated.

Although part of the rumor mill in 1935, Invincible Pictures Corp. and Chesterfield Pictures Corp. were not involved in Republic’s creation in any way—both companies were financed by Pathé. This myth still persists today.

In early 1934 Majestic, relying on independent pickups, formed its own production unit under the helm of Larry Darmour, Majestic Producing Corp. With the absorption into Republic, the company would continue to distribute the few Darmour titles still in circulation. Majestic’s last film, “Reckless Roads,” was completed in May 1935.

Key to the acquisition of Majestic into the Republic fold was that it allowed direct access to the largest film markets in the country by using Majestic’s company-owned New York and Philadelphia exchanges, soon to be renamed. First Division previously handled those lucrative territories for Monogram.

Republic would now have a truly national distribution setup, handling its own product almost exclusively.

One other company, rarely mentioned, that was absorbed into Republic was Select Productions, Inc., headed by William Saal and Burt Kelly. In 1934 the company, a subsidiary of Consolidated Film Industries, made five films in the East, at the Biograph Studios, New York.

The newly reconstructed Biograph Studios, which opened for production in the Bronx on January 2, 1934, was owned by Consolidated Film Industries, the precursor to Herbert J. Yates’ plan to enter motion picture production. The first film to be made at the modernized plant was “Frankie and Johnnie.”

While still temporarily active in the East, Select Productions then started Hollywood production in October 1934 with “Federal Agent” and then “Salvage” (released as “Burning Gold”), and in early 1935, “Go-Get-’Em, Haines” and “Racing Luck,” all starring Bill Boyd.

The films were belatedly released by Republic to cash in on Bill Boyd’s popularity as Hopalong Cassidy. All were presented under the Winchester Pictures banner, helmed by George Hirliman who also helped Herbert J. Yates oversee talent for the Biograph Studios.

Although “Forbidden Heaven” was sometimes reported as the first Republic production, “Westward Ho” was the first to be completed, on June 25, 1935, when additional scenes were filmed at the Talisman Studios after principal photography ended early in the month. The film was trade-screened on June 1.

“Forbidden Heaven” started on June 12, at the RKO Pathé Studios, and wrapped up on June 27. It was the first, however, to be planned solely as a Republic production since “Westward Ho” and “Lawless Range”—filmed back-to-back beginning on May 19 at Lone Pine, California—were in the production pipeline with Monogram.

“Westward Ho” was the first to be released generally, in late August, and “Forbidden Heaven” in September. “Lawless Range” was tentatively planned for a July 30 release but hit the exchanges in late October.

As listed in Republic’s 1994 document, ‘T’ denotes a film available on broadcast tape, ‘F’ on 16mm film. Titles without a format designation (‘—’) were either not part of the Republic library at this time or simply not available for distribution.

The document’s origins predate 1994 since some Republic titles have expiration dates going back to 1984, when National Telefilm Associates (NTA) was renamed Republic, the dates reflecting when distribution rights expired.

Some expiration dates, though not Republic studio titles, go back to 1966, reflecting the document’s early origins.

Besides seven other cases outlined below, those that expired in 1984 were 23 titles in the Red Ryder series, which today is marketed on home video by VCI Entertainment under license from Red Ryder Enterprises, Inc.

The others with expiration dates are seven titles made independently for Republic: “The French Key,” “The Glass Alibi,” “The Pretender,” “Strange Impersonation,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Woman Who Came Back” and “Yankee Fakir,” all now owned by Films Around the World, Inc. (FAT-W).

The Republic releases “The Great Flamarion,” “Identity Unknown,” “That’s My Baby!” and “Trocadero” are now owned by FAT-W also. No expiration dates, however, were included for these indie titles because their copyrights were not renewed.

“Trocadero,” for reasons unknown, was not listed in Republic’s document but was in the NTA library in 1984, although apparently not in circulation. Even when the film came into the hands of Classics Associates, Inc., later called Films Around the World, the film was not available on 16mm.

The eleven titles now with FAT-W were once owned by a former Motion Pictures for Television subsidiary, Western Television Corp., latter a division of Television Industries, Inc. They were leased to NTA by the films’ new owner, Link Industries, Inc., two years before NTA purchased the Republic library in 1967.

All were on TV in the early 1950s from MPTV, the largest distributor at the time.

Three other independent films came back to the Republic library through TV distributors: “Captain Tugboat Annie” and “Adventures of Captain Fabian” were acquired in 1952 and 1958, respectively, by M&A Alexander Productions, Inc., whose library formed a substantial part of NTA in the 1960s.

The third, “Macbeth,” was acquired by the Bank of America in a foreclosure suit, and released to TV by the Film Division of General Teleradio in 1955. NTA acquired the domestic TV rights in 1958, along with 29 other titles in the foreclosure.

Two other independent Republic titles were in the old NTA library but were gone by 1994. “The Fabulous Suzanne” was distributed by Television Exploitation, Inc., renamed Comet Television Films, Inc. in 1953 and absorbed into the fledgling NTA in 1954. It was still in NTA's library in 1967 and eventually passed on to another distributor.

Also “Jealousy” which NTA picked up for distribution in 1956 from Acus Pictures Corp., New York., an early TV distributor, only to disappear from circulation after a few years.

Not included in Republic’s document are 56 Gene Autry titles, the majority with copyright renewals by Republic; the remainder in the public domain. These are now claimed by the Autry estate.

Films with no elements in 1994 are prefaced by an ‘X’, all but one followed by a two-letter designation. Although the others are explained below, X-RP denotes an in-house Republic production still known to be in the library in absentia, so to speak, except those with expired underlying rights, which are noted. Film elements may be incomplete or non-existent for most of them.

Rights are far beyond the scope of what is presented here, the list more to provide a snapshot of what was available in 1994 and a decade earlier.

Republic’s library remained relatively intact into the early 1980s, unlike its counterpart Monogram/Allied Artists which sold outright many of its features years before.

With its entry into the early field of television distribution in 1951, through its Hollywood Television Service, Inc. subsidiary, Republic retitled a number of films for the medium. These variants are reflected in the company document and included herein with their original titles.

A few of the new titles reflect theatrical reissues or those retitled shortly after release, but the majority were specifically for television, which are noted as ‘TV title only’. Other variants are not listed except for three Gene Autry features that MCA-TV retitled when the company had his Republic films in the 1950s, and two Jimmy Valentine titles.

By May 1957 Hollywood Television Service advertised 447 pre-1948 features available to TV, excluding the 67 titles with Roy Rogers and 56 with Gene Autry that MCA-TV—a Republic shareholder—had acquired for worldwide distribution in 1955.

Pre-1948 meant productions started before August 1, 1948, and vice versa, as per an agreement with Hollywood’s talent guilds. Republic ignored the agreement for post-1948 titles, in 1958, since corporately it had ceased motion picture production.

In early 1958, under much controversy, Republic released the first batch of its post-’48 library to TV: 203 features and 15 serials, most of it known as the Constellation Group. In April 1959, Douglas T. Yates, company vice-president, stated 461 pre-’48 titles were in distribution besides the 203 post-’48 pictures.

Douglas T. Yates’ total excluded MCA-TV’s 123 titles with Roy Rogers and Gene Autry, and the 23 Red Ryders, which were all pre-’48. The Republic backlog released to TV totaled 94% with their inclusion.

Republic’s president, Herbert J. Yates, stated in early 1959 that only “about 50” post-’48 films remained in the company’s vaults. In late 1960 those would be released to TV in HTS’s Saturn Group package comprised of 30 titles.

The company's last two post-’48 serials were released by HTS in 1963, leaving 20 of 66 cliffhangers unreleased by the company—about half of those with expired rights. The number of Republic serials in TV circulation would change very little over the years.

In the latter part of 1960, Hollywood Television Service’s library—with over 1200 titles including TV episodes, serial episodes and shorts—had 246 post-’48 and 615 pre-’48 feature films. This included the 23 Red Ryder titles and the 123 with Roy Rogers and Gene Autry.

The Red Ryder series was part of the very first package of films released by HTS, in 1951, with KTTV, Los Angeles, the first station in the country to sign a deal. The rights to the series eventually expired but were acquired again by HTS from Stephen Slesinger, Inc. in early 1960.

The 123 Roy Rogers and Gene Autry titles also returned to HTS the same year in a new agreement with MCA-TV, which had acquired worldwide TV rights to the films in March 1955. A long legal battle between Republic and the cowboy stars kept the films from being broadcast until the MCA-TV deal.

With 246 post-’48ers and 615 pre-’48ers, HTS had a total of 861 feature films by the end of 1960.

There are 804 of 950 features, both American and foreign, listed herein with elements—tape and/or film, including the 23 Red Ryders, which should not have been shown with elements since their rights expired in 1984. This totals 860 features if the 56 Autrys with no elements are included.

The closely matching total is deceiving, however, because 13 of the titles with elements in 1994 were with three other TV distributors in 1960: Western Television, M&A Alexander Productions, and NTA (its pre-Republic years).

This means 14 more features were being distributed in 1960 compared to 1994 if one includes the Red Ryder and Gene Autry titles for comparison.

Not listed with elements in 1994 but released by HTS between 1958–1960 were nine independent American titles: “Yellowneck,” “Hidden Guns,” “Daniel Boone, Trail Blazer,” “Journey to Freedom,” “Hell Canyon Outlaws,” “Raiders of Old California,” “Hell Ship Mutiny,” “Outcasts of the City,” and “Street of Darkness.”

Also not listed with elements in 1994 but released by HTS in 1958 were four foreign titles: “Thunder Over Tangier,” “The Fighting Wildcats,” “Scotland Yard Dragnet,” and “International Counterfeiters.”

This accounts for 13 of the 14 extra features being distributed in 1960. The 14th title was “The Avengers,” which was not listed in 1994.

HTS wasted no time with Republic’s latter post-’48 backlog, releasing many of them to TV two years after their theatrical release dates.

Another title without elements in 1994 but handled by HTS was “Bill and Coo,” released in 1955 as a “Specialty Attraction,” but the rights would lapse.

Not listed above is “Behind City Lights,” without elements in 1994 but released by HTS in 1952, only to be pulled from circulation a few years later.

Two others without elements in 1994 were “Affairs of Jimmy Valentine” and “The Return of Jimmy Valentine,” both briefly released by HTS under their original titles in the early 1950s, part of a 26-picture “Mystery” package. They were soon retitled “Unforgotten Crime” and “Prison Shadows,” respectively, but it is unconfirmed if Republic retained ownership of the films. I suspect they were sold outright to another distributor.

Hollywood Television Service announced in 1960 that it was planning to release its 850-film library to foreign television stations, the number probably a generalization.

Note that what HTS had were only those features in circulation—the total would be different if John Wayne’s lost six-reeler, “The Oregon Trail,” had previously been discovered in a Kansas salt mine.

A few other in-house Republic productions have never been released to TV or any other media since their original theatrical release: “The Harvester,” “Michael O’Halloran,” and “Mr. District Attorney in the Carter Case,” the latter now owned by Kit Parker who has found no useable film elements.

Along with “The Oregon Trail,” these films are considered ‘lost’—at least for now.

Although the in-house productions “Behind City Lights” and “The Avengers” were released to TV at one time, as mentioned both were not listed in Republic’s 1994 document, probably because of poor elements.

Of the independent titles from Republic, only two have disappeared from circulation since their original release: “A Gentle Gangster” has not seen the light of day since; and “Deerslayer,” not to be confused with the 1957 version which was purchased by NTA from 20th Century-Fox in 1960.

The Republic library and other films acquired by NTA are housed at the UCLA Film & Television Archive, where their online catalog can be searched to see what elements exist in their holdings.

Although excluded from Republic’s original document, the initial copyright claimant as registered with the US Copyright Office is listed for each film along with its renewal number. Copyrights renewed other than by Republic’s corporate entities—Republic Corp., National Telefilm Associates, Inc., Repix, Inc.—are italicized.

Of the few films never registered, most have Republic copyright statements on the prints. The law at this time allowed a film to be registered within 28 years of its release, and Republic belatedly registered some of its last films within the deadline, also registering for renewal in the same 28-year window.

In almost all cases, however, films were registered upon their initial release.

In rare cases Republic was the registered copyright claimant but a different one appeared on the print. And some independent films, where Republic’s rights lapsed, had new credits for TV distribution, inserting entirely different copyright claimants. These are not noted.

No guarantee is implied for documenting every copyright renewal, though confidence prevails that all have been accounted. This is not a legal document—some renewals could be missing.

Even without renewal a film may have underlying rights protected by copyright. “Hell Ship Mutiny,” for example, has some of its music under copyright even though the film itself was never registered.

Theatrically released features culled from serials are included, and any renewals listed are specific only to the condensed versions. These are noted as ‘from serial’ but do not always reflect the chapter play’s original name.

No serials were listed in the Republic document, but included were the 26 retitled and condensed 100-minute features the company released to television in 1966. These are included in a separate list following the serials.

Colorized films in Republic’s document are excluded.

The year for each film was not included either. These have been based on a film’s premiere or release date (i.e. its first showing to the general public), but note that is was not uncommon for Republic to hold back some films for six months or more before distribution.

 

A brief chronology of the Republic library:

  • 1935: Republic Pictures Corp. is formed.
  • 1950: Hollywood Television Service, a Republic subsidiary, is formed.
  • 1951: HTS begins releasing Republic’s backlog to TV.
  • 1952: National Telefilm Associates is incorporated but not active until January 1954 (no affiliation with Republic).
  • 1958: Republic makes its last film.
  • 1959: Herbert J. Yates sells Republic.
  • 1960: Republic Pictures Corp. becomes Republic Corp., the former name dropped.
  • 1967: NTA buys Republic’s library from Republic Corp. for $3.35 million; CBS buys Republic’s studio from Republic Corp. for $9.5 million. HTS becomes a division of NTA. Repix, Inc., an NTA subsidiary, is formed. NTA gets domestic television and theatrical rights to the library, while Emery Pictures, Inc., New York, will distribute internationally.
  • 1971: Tele-Communications, Inc., a cable operator, through its subsidiary TCI Programs, Inc., acquires a majority share of NTA for $4.5 million and the Republic library for $3 million. The library purchase was from Walter Heller Factors, Inc., Chicago.
  • 1972: NTA acquires foreign television and theatrical rights to the Republic library. The company licenses 70 films for the soon-to-fail Cartrivision system—home video is born.
  • 1977: Republic Pictures Corp. is reborn, a subsidiary of Republic Industries, in no way related to Republic Corp. The new Republic Pictures, without its namesake’s film library, has rights to the famous eagle trademark and the Republic Pictures name and its variants. The Nostalgia Merchant acquires non-theatrical rights to NTA's library; after Cartrivision fails, the eagle soars once again on home video.
  • 1982: NTA Home Entertainment is formed.
  • 1984: NTA becomes Republic Pictures Corp., acquiring the trademarks of the former Republic Industries. NTA is dissolved January 7, 1985.
  • 1986: Control of Republic is with the Paragon Group, an investment partnership formed in 1985 to acquire media properties.
  • 1994: Paragon is acquired by Spelling Entertainment Group. By year’s end the majority of Spelling is owned by Viacom, which had absorbed Paramount earlier in the year.
  • 1999: Viacom gains full control of Spelling.
  • 2005: Viacom (Paramount) forms Melange Pictures, a subsidiary for the Republic library and other features and shorts previously in the NTA library.

 

 

American Features

The following have been used to denote films with no elements in the 1994 Republic library:

X-GA: Gene Autry titles. X-RR: Red Ryder series, whose elements were listed for all but the titles expired in early 1984. X-HT: independent and foreign titles released by Hollywood Television Service where Republic’s domestic rights eventually lapsed. X-FW: Films Around the World titles, whose elements were listed for all except one but the titles expired in early 1984. X-CW: Commonwealth-released titles. Commonwealth Pictures Corp. and Commonwealth Film and Television, Inc., and its parent, Guaranteed Pictures Co., Inc., were companies that later had rights to all the Republic films made by Consolidated Film Industries’s subsidiary, Select Productions, Inc. Commonwealth also had reissue and TV rights for two of the three 1934-filmed Select Productions released by RKO: “Woman in the Dark,” retitled by Commonwealth as “Woman in the Shadows,” and “People’s Enemy,” retitled for theaters by Guaranteed as “Racketeers.” These were filmed at CFI’s Biograph Studios, New York, as were the two of six released by Republic, “The Crime of Doctor Crespi” and “Frankie and Johnnie.” A third RKO-released Select production, “Gigolette,” disappeared from circulation in the 1960s. Commonwealth's film library was eventually taken over by Teleprompter Corp. X-RP: in-house Republic titles, those by Republic Productions, Inc., still known to be in the library in absentia, except those with expired underlying rights. Film elements may be incomplete or non-existent for most of them.

Other titles with no elements in 1994 simply have an ‘X’, and all prefaced as such are not part of Paramount’s current library, through its Melange Pictures subsidiary. Following American Features is a list of all the films prefaced by ‘X’, with production companies and additional notes.

Also included is an inventory of 16mm titles in 1979 and 1985, with a check mark (✓) denoting a title available from Republic; an ‘×’, not available from Republic but was from a non-affiliated distributor, i.e. not a Republic title; and ‘–’, not available on narrow-gauge from any company. Almost all of Republic’s 16mm library was distributed by Ivy Films, NTA/Republic’s official non-theatrical distributor since 1971.

Although not released by Republic, special mention must be given to “Too Late for Tears” (1949), made at the Republic Studios for independent producer Hunt Stromberg’s Streamline Pictures for release by United Artists. All post-production work (music, editing, special effects) was done at the studio—all in-house except for the financing. The film, now in the public domain, was reissued by Astor Pictures in 1955 as “Killer Bait.”

Another completely in-house production made at the Republic Studios was “Montana Belle” for producer Howard Welsch’s Fidelity Pictures. Initially intended as a Republic release, after its completion in late 1948, RKO purchased the film from Fidelity in early 1949, marking the first time Republic’s color process, Trucolor, would be released by another company. Announced to hit the exchanges a number of times in the proceeding years, “Montana Belle,” however, sat on the shelf until its general release in November 1952.

The following is a list of production companies for films prefaced by ‘X’ in American Features, excluding the Red Ryder series, Gene Autry titles and those culled from serials. Republic’s producing arm was Republic Productions, Inc.—the distributing arm was Republic Pictures Corp.— so this has been used to denote in-house product:

Affairs of Jimmy Valentine (Republic Productions; also released to TV as “Unforgotten Crime”), African Manhunt (Trinity Productions), The Avengers (Republic Productions), Beginning of the End (AB-PT Pictures), Behind City Lights (Republic Productions), The Big Show-Off (Williams-Spence Productions), Bill and Coo (Ken Murray Productions), Burning Gold (Select Productions/Winchester Pictures), Cancion de Mexico (Republic Productions; Spanish version of “Song of Mexico”), Crazylegs (Hall Bartlett Productions), The Crime of Doctor Crespi (Select Productions/JHA [John H. Auer] Pictures; principal photography was completed September 27, 1934, at the Biograph Studios, New York), Daniel Boone, Trail Blazer (Gannaway-Ver Halen Productions), Deerslayer (Cardinal Pictures), Eighteen and Anxious (AB-PT Pictures), The Fabulous Suzanne (Star Pictures [Steve Sekely Productions]), Federal Agent (Select Productions/Winchester Pictures), Frankie and Johnnie (Select Productions/All Star Productions; principal photography was completed March 9, 1934, at the Biograph Studios, New York, with retakes a year later), The French Key (Walter Colmes Productions), Fugitive Lady (Scalera Film/Venus Film/Mike J. Frankovich; made in Italy in both English and Italian versions), A Gentle Gangster (A.W. Hackel Productions), Girl in the Woods (AB-PT Pictures), The Glass Alibi (W. Lee Wilder Productions), Go-Get-’Em, Haines (Select Productions/Winchester Pictures), The Great Flamarion (Filmdom Productions [W. Lee Wilder Productions]), The Harvester (Republic Productions), Hell Canyon Outlaws (Jerold Zukor Productions), Hell Ship Mutiny (Lovina Productions; culled from at least three episodes of the ill-fated TV series “Knight of the South Seas”), Hidden Guns (Gannaway-Ver Halen Productions), House by the River (Fidelity Pictures), Identity Unknown (Walter Colmes Productions), Invisible Avenger (Demby Productions; culled from two television pilots), Jealousy (Gong Productions), Journey to Freedom (Apostolof Productions), Los vengadores (Republic Productions; Spanish version of “The Avengers”), Michael O’Halloran (Republic Productions), Moscow Strikes Back (Central Studios [USSR]/Artkino Pictures; Artkino had this American version of a Russian documentary in release for a month before Republic struck a deal for distribution rights), Mr. District Attorney (Republic Productions), Mr. District Attorney in the Carter Case (Republic Productions), The Oregon Trail (Republic Productions), Outcasts of the City (Lorraine Productions), The Pretender (W.W. [W. Lee Wilder] Productions), Racing Luck (Select Productions/Winchester Pictures), Raiders of Old California (Albert C. Gannaway Productions [Gavel, Inc.]), The Return of Jimmy Valentine (Republic Productions; also released to TV as “Prison Shadows”), Roogie’s Bump (John Bash Productions), A Song for Miss Julie (Pre-Em Pictures), Strange Impersonation (William [W. Lee] Wilder Productions), Street of Darkness (Robert Keys Productions; seldom seen indie made as “Seed of Darkness” and “Hop Alley” in New Orleans), That’s My Baby! (Walter Colmes Productions), This Is Korea! (United States Navy/Republic Productions), Trocadero (Walter Colmes Productions), The Unearthly (AB-PT Pictures), Winter Wonderland (Walter Colmes Productions), Woman Who Came Back (Walter Colmes Productions), Yankee Fakir (W. Lee Wilder Productions), Yellowneck (Empire Studios).

Note that other independent companies, many with financial guarantees from Republic, made films for the studio.

Republic’s second venture into foreign production after “Cancion de Mexico” (“Song of Mexico,” 1945) was “The Avengers” in 1949, filmed mainly in Argentina and also at the company’s Hollywood studio. The film, also made in a Spanish version titled “Los vengadores”—with Fernando Lamas instead of John Carroll in the male lead among other differences—would not have been lensed in Argentina if not for Republic’s frozen funds in the country.

“Atlantic City” (1944, R520385) was re-edited and theatrically reissued by Republic in 1950 as “Atlantic City Honeymoon.” The reissue was copyrighted and registered that year under the new title and renewed in 1977 as R682673. This is the only case of a Republic reissue being copyrighted and renewed.

“Michael O’Halloran” (1937) was also copyrighted by Republic as “Any Man’s Wife” shortly after its initial registration, reflecting its new release title. The 1948 version, made by Windsor Pictures Corp. for release by Monogram, later ended up in the Republic library—via the TV library of M&A Alexander Productions—and was renewed by National Telefilm Associates as R616958.

The copyright renewal for “Hell Canyon Outlaws” by Tartan Enterprises is bogus, along with the other 19 films renewed by the company. The renewal number is excluded.

“Beginning of the End” (1957), “Eighteen and Anxious” (1957), “Girl in the Woods” (1958), and “The Unearthly” (1957) had their copyrights renewed by Peter S. Rogers, a former NTA executive. The films are now in the library of the Peter Rodgers Organization. All were initially released to TV by M&A Alexander Productions, Inc.

Features culled from serials are excluded. The documentary “Zanzabuku” is not listed, but was announced to be filmed over a six-month period specifically for Republic in late May 1954. Films noted as indie pickup means no distribution deal with Republic was in place at the start of principal photography. All four AB-PT Pictures Corp. titles were filmed on the Republic lot. “A Woman’s Devotion,” re-released in 1958 as “Battle Shock,” is listed in some sources as filmed in Naturama, but trade publications disagree.

The AFI Catalog lists the production of “Hell Canyon Outlaws” incorrectly. It was completed in November 1956, not February 1957.

The last ‘true’ Republic production was “The Man Who Died Twice,” started on December 9, 1957 and completed before Christmas, made by Ventura Productions which was formed in March 1957 by Rudy Ralston and Joseph Kane. Ventura was one of a number of corporate entities making the studio’s product after Republic’s last-produced feature of 1956, “Spoilers of the Forest,” was completed in early November.

Republic ended its days concentrating on pictures with average budgets of $125,000–$150,000, in addition to deals with independent producers providing their own financing and using the company’s studio facilities. With Republic poised to release its post-1948 product to TV in January 1958, the company was no longer in active production under its own name.

In March 1958 members of three unions, Screen Actors Guild, Screen Directors Guild, and Writers Guild of America, were banned from working for the company and its subsidiary, Studio City TV Productions, after Republic made the first sale of its post-1948 library to TV.

Republic’s last feature, “Plunderers of Painted Flats,” made by an indie crew, was started July 28 and completed by mid-August 1958. By the time of its release in January 1959, Republic had closed all of its exchanges, a process started in early 1957, relying on independent state rights distributors to handle what product was left. Republic’s annual report, released in February 1959, stated the company had completed its plan to discontinue motion picture production and distribution.

Herbert J. Yates, Republic’s founder, and other principal shareholders, would sell out on July 1, 1959. The company would continue its diversified industrial operations in film processing (Consolidated Film Industries), plastics (Consolidated Molded Products), studio rentals, and television sales (Hollywood Television Service). The company changed its name to Republic Corp. on April 5, 1960.

 

 

Foreign Features

The following are foreign films released by Republic. Many had different titles in their native country but are not included. The years listed are Republic’s distribution and can vary greatly from their native release. All non-UK films are dubbed. The inclusion of 16mm availability has not been used here, but has been checked: If a film is listed with elements, it was available on 16mm from Ivy Films.

The copyrights for “At Dawn We Die” and “The Congress Dances” are enforced and restored under the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.

Included are six British productions with the financial participation of Republic, all technically co-productions but listed here separately. Four were made in 1954 by Republic Productions (Great Britain), Ltd., by in-house director R.G. Springsteen: “Cross Channel,” “The Green Buddha,” “Secret Venture,” and “Track the Man Down.” The other two were from producer Herbert Wilcox: “Laughing Anne” and “Trouble in the Glen.”

Republic had no involvement with the production of another Wilcox film, “Trent’s Last Case,” which was made before the May 1952 agreement with Republic and Wilcox-Neagle Productions. The joint arrangement called for a third picture, which would be “Lilacs in the Spring,” but Republic was not directly involved in its production other than having distribution rights in the Eastern Hemisphere.

Republic Productions (Great Britain), Ltd. also made a 13-episode TV series produced in England, in cooperation with Herbert Wilcox, for its US TV subsidiary, Hollywood Television Service. Titled “Stryker of the Yard,” two features were compiled and released in the UK and other foreign theaters only: “Stryker of the Yard” (1953), released in Australia as “Scotland Yard Cases”; and “Companions in Crime” (1954), released in Australia as “Stryker Strikes Twice.” Note that all the episodes were released theatrically in the UK as 34-minute featurettes by Republic Pictures International, Inc., a time when TV sets were not so prevalent there. The series, produced by William N. Boyle who also made the four R.G. Springsteen features, was released in the US in 1956 as “Stryker of Scotland Yard.” Note that Springsteen arrived in England in early 1953 to direct three British features written by Lester Powell, so the director probably had a hand in making some of the episodes.

Besides “Sugar Ray Robinson vs. Randolph Turpin,” a six-reel feature purchased from Adelphi Films, Ltd. in the UK, Republic also released “Rocky Marciano vs. Roland La Starza” in 1953, but its approximate 39-minute running time does not qualify it as an American feature.

“Strange Case of Dr. Manning” and “Thunder Over Tangier” were copyrighted under their original UK titles, “Morning Call” and “Man from Tangier,” respectively.

Although “Hidden Homicide” had its copyright renewed by Rank Film Distributors, Ltd., Republic has always claimed the film as its own.

“The Weapon” had its copyright renewed by Alliance Pictures Corp., but the film is a permanent title in the Republic library.

The copyright renewal for “Thunder Over Tangier” by Tartan Enterprises is bogus, along with the other 19 films renewed by the company. The renewal number is excluded.

As an example of Republic’s legal department going through the motions of copyright renewal: “Suicide Squadron,” made by RKO Radio British Productions, was released by Republic in the US on a short-term agreement. The film was part of the RKO sale to television in the 1950s, and today in their library, although J.E.D. Production Corp. was listed as its 1970s TV distributor.

It seems at times that copyrights due to expire were simply renewed without checking agreements, as with the dual renewals on “The Divided Heart” and “Trent’s Last Case.”

Most of the foreign films listed were not part of the Republic library at this time. Of those that were, and still extant, the most obscure is “In Old Vienna,” announced for release by Republic in December 1956. The Trucolor film, made in Austria in early 1955, initially titled “Trilogy,” was written, produced and directed by James A. FitzPatrick, who was noted for his travelogues. He also directed the Spanish version of Republic’s “Song of Mexico” in 1945. “In Old Vienna,” however, was likely never released theatrically in the US.

 

 

 

 

Serials

Includes the number of chapters. ‘X’ denotes underlying rights have expired. Unlike American Features, which uses ‘✓’ to denote 16mm availability, here ‘✓’ is a serial released by Republic or a licensee on home video ( ‘✓*’ denotes those rights exist no longer); ‘×’, an authorized home video release other than Republic; ‘–’, no authorized home video release. Note that 16mm is discounted as home video; also that Ivy Films, NTA/Republic’s non-theatrical 16mm distributor, handled some of the serials which today it would no longer have rights.

Each episode of “Commando Cody” was copyrighted and renewed individually: RE088-806, RE088-807, RE088-812, RE088-813, RE088-814, RE088-815, RE088-817, RE088-818, RE088-820, RE088-823, RE088-824, RE088-825.

VCI Entertainment is the authorized home video distributor of “Adventures of Red Ryder,” “Dick Tracy,” “Dick Tracy Returns,” “Dick Tracy vs. Crime, Inc.,” “Dick Tracy’s G-Men,” “Drums of Fu Manchu,” “Jungle Girl,” and “King of the Royal Mounted.”

The rights to Dick Tracy are owned by Tribune Media.

The rights to “Adventures of Red Ryder,” including the 23 Republic features, are owned by Stephen Slesinger, Inc., now handling the franchise under the name Red Ryder Enterprises, Inc. The rights to “King of the Royal Mounted” and “King of the Mounties” are still with Stephen Slesinger, Inc., both companies helmed by Slesinger’s daughter. Republic planned to reissue the two Mounty serials in 1953 with the permission of Romer Grey, the son of Zane Grey, but the deal fell through because rights were with Stephen Slesinger, Inc.

Banner Films, Inc. acquired worldwide distribution rights to “Jungle Girl” from the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1961. Banner two years earlier also acquired most of the various Tarzan features, all authorized by the former Sol Lesser Productions which had TV and theatrical rights from the author. Rights are now with Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.

Republic signed an exclusive agreement in early 1955 with Sax Rohmer, creator of the character Fu Manchu, with plans to produce 78 half-hour TV episodes and three theatrical features. Studio City TV Productions, Inc., a Republic subsidiary, only produced 13 episodes of “The Adventures of Dr. Fu Manchu,” which were first released by HTS in February 1956. Sax Rohmer (Arthur Henry Ward) died in 1959, and the series was pulled from distribution, unlike Republic’s other TV series. Whatever rights Republic owned have long-expired and are now with the Sax Rohmer estate.

“Captain America” was on early home video from Nostalgia Merchant, one of 19 Republic serials released by the company in 1978, which included “Adventures of Red Ryder,” now with VCI. NTA during the 1970s used to distribute “Captain America” to TV under license from the Marvel Comics Group, including 16mm by Ivy Films. The serial, whose rights are with Marvel Entertainment, has no recent-day authorized release.

“Ghost of Zorro” was available on 16mm from Ivy Films (163 minutes), unrelated to the feature version. The serial, which has no rights issues, has never been released on home video, unauthorized or not.

The theatrical version of “Commando Cody: Sky Marshal of the Universe” was released on DVD and Blu-ray by Olive Films, which has home video rights to the Republic library from Paramount.

An incomplete version of “The Lone Ranger” was on early home video from Video Yesteryear, Video Connection, and Reel Images, but was not authorized by the Wrather Corp., which owned the rights at the time. In a very recent move, those are now with Universal Pictures.

“Captain America,” “Daredevils of the West,” “The Lone Ranger,” “King of the Mounties,” and “The Lone Ranger Rides Again,” among others, have been restored by the Serial Squadron and released on DVD but are not authorized.

Four of the serials were released on home video under their reissue titles: “Perils of Nyoka” as “Nyoka and the Tigermen”; “Secret Service in Darkest Africa” as “Manhunt in the African Jungle”; and “The Tiger Woman” as “Perils of the Darkest Jungle.” “Haunted Harbor” was released under that title but the print was its reissue, “Pirates' Harbor.”

Sources vary whether the serials “Darkest Africa,” “Dick Tracy,” “The Painted Stallion,” and “Robinson Crusoe of Clipper Island” had domestic theatrical releases in condensed form. The same for “Zorro Rides Again” in 1938, but definitely had a domestic theatrical release in 1959. It is likely these five serial-based features from the 1930s were released overseas only, discounting the 1959 release of “Zorro Rides Again.”

Confirmed to be released in the UK, all at seven reels, are “Darkest Africa,” released as “The Hidden City,” 1936; “Robinson Crusoe of Clipper Island,” released as “S.O.S Clipper Island,” 1937; and “Dick Tracy” in 1938. The source serials for the aforementioned titles were not released in the UK at the time, which may explain the feature versions in circulation over there.

Conversely, all 12 chapters of the “The Painted Stallion” and “Zorro Rides Again” were released in the UK in 1938 and 1939, respectively. The UCLA Film & Television Archive has the seven-reel nitrate elements for both features, so they do exist.

“The Painted Stallion” was released on DVD-R by Alpha Video, running 76 minutes. It closes with an early version of Republic's bell tower herald, evidence of a late 1930s or 1940s release.

Note that reports of the condensed version of "Ghost of Zorro" only being theatrically released overseas in 1959 are not true.

 

 

 

Century ’66 TV Features

In 1966 Hollywood Television Service released 26 100-minute features culled from serials. All were listed in Republic’s 1994 document. Never released theatrically or on home video, all were available on 16mm from Ivy Films. None of the films were registered for copyright, each title carrying the source serial's original copyright notice by Republic Pictures Corporation. The second column is the source serial.

Unrelated to the Century ’66 package, the serials “Dick Tracy,” “Dick Tracy Returns,” “Dick Tracy vs. Crime, Inc.,” and “Dick Tracy’s G-Men” were also available as 100-minute features. Gold Key Entertainment acquired authorized TV distribution rights to the four features and four source serials in 1977. All were released on home video in 1990 by VCI under license from Tribune Media. The video cassettes of the condensed versions have a 1973 copyright by UFC, Inc., which may be a clue when they were re-edited. Note that Ivy Films had at least two of the features on 16mm.

Although Republic colorized a number of features, two were from serials and released to TV and home video in 93-minute condensed form: “The Crimson Ghost” and “Zombies of the Stratosphere,” which debuted on TV in 1990 and video cassette in 1995.
