Metropolis found!

Possibly the most exciting piece of film news this century - hidden away in Buenos Aires for 80 years, the missing sections of Metropolis have come to light! Since 1928, over a quarter of this film have been thought lost for ever. Now Lang's full, original, 210-minute cut has been found and brought back to Berlin.

Wow! Phenomenal. I wonder how many other hidden treasures in cinema are waiting to be discovered.

We can dream about someone rediscovering Theda Bara's Cleopatra (1917)
