Is the film or the play it was adapted from in the public domain? If not, who owns the copyright?

Copyright lasts so long that just about anything from the 20th century is copyright. When was the film or play you mean published?

Now you need to know when the authors died. In many countries, copyright last for 70 years after the author's death. In can get a bit over the top. Francis Browne's Titanic photos are copyright until 2030.
