Fritz Lang's Metropolis On Television Tonight
Back in April, I mentioned that the fully-restored version of Fritz Lang's silent masterpiece "Metropolis" was being released in theaters. I unfortunately didn't get a chance to see it in the theater, but I am pleased to report that it will be on Turner Classic Movies tonight at 8:00 PM, followed by Metropolis Refound, which looks to be a documentary about how the missing footage was recovered and restored. This movie influenced film making (and especially science fiction film making) for a century, and now it's got an added half-hour or so of previously-missing footage. Definitely worth checking out!
