Metropolis Discovered

For those of us who have have an abiding interest in the history of film this is a really big thing. A copy of the original version of Fritz Lang's Metropolis has been found in Argentina. For eight decades we have only had a truncated copy of one of the most influential films ever made. Now it can be viewed in its full, three-hour glory.

Read about this amazing discovery here. I can hardly wait to see the restored full print.
