Actually, it’s a matter that the film itself was on has turned to dust and nobody bothered to make a copy of it in time. The early 20’s film they used was made out of very volatile materials and didn't last more than a few decades.

Copyright used to be 28 years. Would have sufficed to probably save many of those films. I don't lament the loss of films they've allowed to turn into dust. They brought it on themselves.
