    An incredible discovery has been made in Argentina, a complete print of 20's favourite Metropolis has been discovered in Argentina!

    It's been widely thought that a complete print would ever be found but the one that has emerged on Thursday, some 81 years after the movie was originally made is currently the only complete print in the entire world.

    Even better news, the complete print is going to be carefully restored and released to the world on DVD in 2009!!!

    Although I personally love Metropolis and consider it one of the greatest movies ever made, I still hold hope that one day a complete print of Frank Capra's Lost Horizon will be found, sadly it looks unlikely as the only complete print known in existence was burnt by Capra himself while the remaining lost footage was destroyed in the 1960's from negative deterioration; the complete audio does exist though.

    Check out the Reuters article here and a German news story featuring a gallery of stills from the newly discovered print.
