Okay, apologies if this has been covered before...I'll be shocked if it has. I got a DVD set of old TV shows for Christmas....it's a Dollar General style cheapie, all public domain stuff like Our Miss Brooks, I Married Joan, etc. But there are 2 Mister Ed shows on there--one is a "payroll savings" film produced by the government (sidetrack: someone should get all of these "payroll savings" quasi-episodes on one DVD set...I know of at least 6 I can name off the top of my head!)--it's obviously PD, obviously a 16mm print, traditional grungy PD quality. But then there's the other episode--it's from 1961, the quality is pristine--as good as TV Land airings or better--and.................the MGM Lion precedes the episode! Now, as far as I knew, MGM's acquisition of "Mister Ed" is fairly recent, and they certainly haven't had the lion logo attached to the show for long. It was my understanding that even if an episode is in public domain, the company putting it out has to find their own print (through collector's circles, etc)...even if the Mister Ed ep is PD, they can't just copy the episode from a professionally released studio DVD, or a television station's videotape copy....or can they?
