Film Noir And Other Public Domain Feature Films

[Note: Windows Media Player Series 9 or higher plays these files. These MP4 films WILL play on the IPOD.]

For whatever reason, my recent test-sampling of public domain films on this website with windows 8 revealed an error/no-play/corrupted file prompt for the mp4 films which format is more than sufficient for films of that genre/time period; and hence, easy on memory/hard drive space. The mp4 format is not brain surgery and one may only surmise that, in a manner consistent with that 'brilliant planned obsolescence strategy' that worked so well for GM (Hmmmm! Riiiiight! ), hopes were leaping for unnecessary, redundant trips to the app store to which one's directed would be the outcome (hmmmmm!). I recommend the following though I'm sure there are many other free apps available to play mp4 files, etc. ... :
