It’s a hot New York summer and folks in and around a particular apartment building engage in gossip, romance, and other social games.

  • Directed by King Vidor.
  • Written by Elmer Rice (both play and film adaptation).
  • Starring Sylvia Sidney, William Collier Jr., and Estelle Taylor.

Originally copyrighted September 5, 1931 by Feature Productions, Inc., Ltd, this movie is believed to have entered the public domain some 28 years after its release. Copyright protection most likely expired due to a failure to renew the copyright in 1959. To support this conclusion, I found no formal copyright entry for Street Scene in the US Catalogs of Copyright Entries, Cumulative Series, Motion Pictures, 1950-1959 and 1960-1969. also lists this movie as being free of known restrictions of copyright law.

I do my best to determine the true copyright status of the movies found on this website; however, in the event that I’ve mislabeled this movie, please contact me and let me know via my contact page. Thanks!

  • Tim Violette Banned Added The Kurt Weill musical seems to be quite faithful to this film.
