It was shown in Berlin with the extra 30 mins previously thought to be lost. Hopefully a widespread DVD is not far away.

'Bout time!

"...written by Joseph Stefano, the guy who wrote 'Psycho,' only this time instead of being about a guy having trouble accepting the death of his Mama, it's a girl having trouble accepting the death of her Daddy. It happened 14 years ago, when she was seven, and ever since then she's wanted to stab men to death with a screwdriver whenever they try to get too close to her. Of course, I've encountered this 'killer screwdriver syndrome' with several women during my lifetime..."-Joe Bob on BLACKOUT

This is one of those movies that I've never seen, but always meant to get around to watching.  Guess I have a good excuse for waiting now.   Smile

Hmmm... I wonder if George Lukas will restore Metropolis like he did with Star Wars...

I'm happy to hear but I'm a little confused... I remember hearing the orginal version something like 6 hours long... was that true?

Maybe you're thinking of GREED (1924).

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
