Loving the Classics (LTC) is a place dedicated to the love of classic movies. We have over 18,000 titles in our catalog. Everything from early silents to 70s cult films, we have it, and if we don’t we’ll try to get it.
Is there any packaging or artwork with your titles?
Our public domain movies come in cases with artwork, but the artwork displayed on our site may differ from the actual product. Studio releases also come in cases with artwork, and are usually the same as the picture shown, but some variations may occur.
Why don’t you have ...?
We only offer classic movies (pre-1980), but in some exceptions we carry newer titles that might be part of a larger collection (James Bond films, for example). We also carry newer documentaries, but only when the focus is classic movies and their stars. We have studio releases and films that have not been commercially released and are in the public domain. Due to the rarity of our public domain movies please forgive any minor natural imperfections in the films themselves. Please review our public domain film disclaimer HERE.
What is public domain?
A work has entered public domain because either the copyright has not been applied for or it has expired. Anything that is not protected under the copyright law can include works published between 1928 and under certain circumstances works published up to 1978. Re-published and re-packaged public domain information or creative works are not illegal. The reason is that because the work has fallen into the public domain there are no royalties to pay on the work.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we ship anywhere in the world.
How much is shipping?
Shipping costs vary depending on the number of titles ordered. You can can get a shipping quote by viewing your cart at any time during the ordering process.
Will your discs play in my DVD player?

Blu-ray discs will only play in Blu-ray players and 3D movies will only work with the appropriate 3D equipment (TV, DVD player, optic cable, etc.) Customer is responsible for verifying compatibility prior to purchase.

As part of that mission we have created The LTC Guarantee. If you are unhappy with the quality of your movie you can choose from one of the following options:
A. If the quality is unacceptable to you we can try to get a better copy of the film you ordered.
B. If we are unable to get a better copy you choose another title of equal of lessor value (not including shipping) to replace your original order.
C. We can issue store credit for a future order (shipping not included)
(Note: Customers must get return authorization from us and must ship defective movies back in order to receive replacement or store credit. Customer is responsible for return shipping fees.)
