Complete Version of Metropolis Found

A few weeks ago I sat down to watch Fritz Lang’s most famous film, Metropolis (1927) and during the opening credits the titlecards commented on missing reels.

It seems the original 200+ minute version of the film, unseen since the premiere in 1927, surfaced in Argentina.  The link is to a website that published the article in 2008, but I found it in Empire Magazine, stating a DVD release of the original version in 2010.
