According to the US Copyright Catalog for Motion Pictures, 1912-1939, The Silver Horde has an original copyright date of October 25, 1930 by RKO Radio Pictures, Inc. In order to maintain its copyright, claimants were to renew the copyright in the 28th year after publication. Unfortunately, it seems that the copyright was never formally renewed and the movie fell into the public domain. I found no record of this movie in the US Copyright catalog for 1950-1959.
I also found that The Silver Horde is available for a free download on Archive.org.
