Fritz Lang's 1927 Masterpiece

Tonight at 8 PM(EST) Turner Classic Movies is playing
the television premiere of the newly restored version of
METROPOLIS starring Rudolph Klein-Rogge and
the incredibly beautiful Brigitte Helm!
Though still incomplete (originally released at 204 minutes)
this print runs 147 minutes incorporating 25 minutes of
film that hasn't been seen in over 80 years!

I have been looking forward to this for a long time!

Following the film, TCM is premiering the documentary on
the restoration of METROPOLIS...if that isn't enough
it's followed by two other incredible films by Fritz Lang
SPIONE (1928) and M (1931)
It doesn't get any better than this!
