I’m a huge fan of the great Fritz Lang. The Dr Mabuse films, M and Metropolis are masterworks of early cinema, and his Hollywood career one of the most highly regarded and influential of any Director.

I was astonished to hear that the long lost original version of Metropolis was recently rediscovered. This much longer version, the only existing copy in the world, was found earlier this year in a Buenos Aires film archive.

You can read the story of the rediscovery here.

Sometimes you think you’ve heard it all 🙂
