The original Dawn of the Dead is in ownership limbo and hasn't seen the light of day in many years. It's soooo much better than the remake.Reading this reminded me of the Sony warehouse fire a few years ago (read the Nytimes Magazine piece about it). It's crazy how we can preserve so much media and so well now. However! It's also clear we are due for a massive reckoning in the next few decades as we realize just how much media--and by extension--culture we've lost for benign reasons. Like it's crazy to think an Oscar-winning film could just get lost forever in corporate archives either due to ownership transfers or because we don't know who owns 30 seconds of music in the film and we just forget about the movie.
