Fritz Lang’s 1927 sci-fi masterpiece Metropolis was given a cinema re-release in 2010 after missing scenes, long thought lost, were discovered in an Argentinian museum and reintegrated back into the film. Twenty six years earlier, music producer Giorgio Moroder produced and released an alternative version of the film which was restored and had various scenes that were missing from the first US release reinserted back in. Controversially, Moroder also replaced the original orchestral score by Gottfried Huppertz with contemporary rock and pop music from the likes of Pat BenatarBonnie TylerAdam Ant and Freddie Mercury. Despite the heated debate that this re-release provoked it did have the benefit of bringing the film back into the public consciousness and led to further restorations over the following years. Originally folded (as issued) this British UK quad from Moroder’s 1984 release looks fantastic and displays to excellent effect….Due to a very limited cinematic release these examples are extremely scarce and hugely collectible and it represents a fine item of original 1980’s film movie memorabilia that not only features one of the tho most influential films ever made but the soundtrack is more 80’s nostalgia.
