Fritz Lang showed in his film what George Lucas quoted three quarter of a century later:

Interesting to see what 'future' 80 years ago ment: traffic jam!

This was filmed in a stop-motion-technique:

Another idea which we have today is the video-telephone:

At that time no one even used the word 'video', apart from Latin scholars.

Here we see C-3POs grandmother:

... and some more pleasures for the eyes -- only for those of you who admit liking it... ;)

Remember, the film is 80 years old!

I found one more vehicle, an electric cart, but hardly visible:

And finaly I'd like to mention that this film is part of the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

These images are from the restored and reconstructed version of 2001.

I heard about the Rumpler cars being in this film and ordered it straight away.

..The musical version (1984)by Giorgio Moroder (..anyone remember the Cizeta Moroder.?) sorry..drifting from the subject...back to the film ... this version was also said to be a restored version ..with extra scenes added ... and it was colourized (..the colours are poor in places ...but it gives the film a different look.!)
running time is said to be 83 mins ..approx.

Some say the original film was 5 hours long. Can someone verify this ?

As far as I know the premiere cut was 210 mins long.

The original version had a length of 4189 m, which at 24 images per second means 153 minutes. The version reconstructed in 2001 by the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau foundation has a lenght of 117 minutes.

Too bad that part of such movie is lost forever :/ They could rather lose a part of "Spice Word" (for those that remember that thing :D) or something like that

I have seen this movie before, and found it to be quite odd. Born in the wrong generation I guess...

"C3PO's grandmother" :lol: must've been extremely advanced for it's time, as it is still futuristic-looking today!

Missing parts were recently discovered in a Film Museum in Buenos Aires. It is said that it is a rather scratched copy, so to restore it will take some time. Still it can be said that the missing scenes will add a new dimension to the film. ... and there is a lengthy scene in a car! :)

The Kino DVD will be out November 16. The restored version is currently touring film festivals and on TCM as "Metropolis Refound".
