Aside from its progressive storytelling, it is also known for being heavily [[LostEpisode fragmented]], the results of both heavy Bowdlerization in its trip to foreign markets, and of poor preservation techniques back in the '30s (plus a little thing called World War II).

Not to be confused with the [[Anime/{{Metropolis}} anime film of the same name]], which is [[InNameOnly very loosely based on]] a manga by Creator/OsamuTezuka, which was itself SuggestedBy, but not adapted from, this movie.

Up to 25% of the original footage was considered lost before turning up in a museum in Argentina in 2007, albeit in inferior picture quality. The rediscovered footage was cleaned up as well as possible and integrated into the existing restored footage. The rediscovered version also confirmed the exact running order of shots, which in previous versions could only be guessed at. This new version runs only about five minutes short of the original 1927 German cut, as opposed to nearly an entire hour shorter in some versions. Unfortunately, two scenes still remained too badly damaged to restore, and were replaced by title cards. It made its big US debut at the Turner Classic Movies festival in 2009 and on television on Turner Classic Movies in November 2010. This nearly complete version was released on DVD and UsefulNotes/BluRay in late 2010.

** Names like 'Joh', 'Hel' and maybe even Josaphat (an outdated Hebraic name, shorted version of Jehosaphat) are completey out of circulation.

* LostForever: The rest of the film until it turned up in Argentina, except for two scenes that were too badly damaged to restore.



** Georgy ([[YouAreNumberSix 11811]]), the worker Freder takes the place of at the dial machine. His story was expanded on in the footage that was later cut and, until recently, LostForever. He is supposed to have Freder's chauffeur drive him to Josaphat's apartment, but after finding a lot of money in the pockets of his borrowed clothes, he spends the night at Yoshiwara instead. The next morning, the Thin Man catches Georgy and sends him back to his station; later, when the workers start rioting, Georgy protects him and is stabbed to death.

* SpotTheImposter: Happens at one point in the novel, where both the real and false Maria call out to Freder. Though this is before the robot's transformation, so Freder only hears the Marias and doesn't actually see them.
