MGM released this remake the same year they acquired United Artists, which had owned the rights to the original film since 1958, when they acquired Associated Artists Productions (a.a.p.), owners of the pre-1950 Warner Bros. film library. MGM/UA would hold on to both film versions of the story until 1986, when Turner Broadcasting System acquired MGM's library including the a.a.p. library. Turner Entertainment became the new rights holders to the films, and in 1996, Turner merged with WB's current parent Time Warner, not only bringing the 1943 version back under WB control, but also giving them the rights to the 1981 version. Turner continues to hold the copyrights to both films. See more
