This is amazing news, even if the footage isn’t in great shape it would be nice to find out more insight into the original story:

Missing scenes from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis discovered

“For 80 years the original version of Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis” has been considered lost. The ZEITmagazin shows details from the missing scenes of the 1927 masterpiece for the first time in its Thursday edition, and reports exclusively on how the film was tracked down in the archive of the Museo del Cine (Cinema Museum) in Buenos Aires. Through this new discovery, key scenes from the silent film become more intelligible, minor characters now have leading parts.”
