More Than A Million Free Movies

posted by Nell Minow

CinemaBlend reports that the Internet Archive has 1.3 million movies available for free viewing, with more to come!

[T]he introduction of the massive Internet Archive might change how you view (and collect) movies. The video vault, according to a counter at the top of its home page, currently offers 1.3 million torrent files for download using BitTorrent. The files range from movies to books, concerts to historical news broadcasts. Want to hear the audio of the Hindenberg Crash? Stream a Grateful Dead concert from 1977? Or catch up on the long-lost television movie Rescue from Gilligan’s Island? The Internet Archive has you covered.

Granted, you won’t find Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol on here. The nonprofit service seems to specialize in the obscure and the old, establishing itself as an archive for “researchers, historians and scholars,” according to their site. Alfred Hitchcock’s 1929 thriller Blackmail (pictured above) — considered the first British “talkie” – can be downloaded on the site, for example. The Avengers, however, will not be made available. The hook of the service is that it’s all totally legal (because the titles exist in the public domain) … and all totally free.

Because they are in the public domain, we can expect some very creative remixes, too.
