Watch Night Of The Living Dead (1968) For Free

Originally called Night of the Flesh Eaters, when the film changed its name to Night of the Living Dead, a mistake was made by the original theatrical distributor, the Walter Reade Organization, forgot to add the copyright notice to the title card. Due to the copyright laws at that time, if a film lacked a copyright notice, it was considered public domain, and thus George A. Romero doesn’t make any money from the film that launched his career as the king of the zombie films.  (and hence why he ended up remaking the film some years later so he could have a copyrighted version)
