How can I obtain the film rights to a book? Especially if the publisher doesn't answer my emails?
I am in the process of starting up a production company. I used to have my own company years ago but got out of the business back then. Now I have decided to try it again.

The publisher is not always the copyright holder - you can find the name of the copyright holder through either the catalog page or the Library of Congress.

How do I get the film rights to a book when the author has died, and the book has been out for 50+ years?

You would need to research who currently holds any copyrights. It may be the family or the original publisher or the copyright may have been allowed to lapse moving the book into the realm of "public domain"
