* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasAndTheMagicRailroad'' is been cut from the test audiences like remove all the scenes from 110 minutes long to 85 minutes like the true main antagonist was P.T. Boomer (played by Doug Lennox) where he is the one who wrecked Lady not Diesel 10, but then it was removed and re-dubbed thinking him was to scary.

* The 1930 film ''The Cat Creeps'' was an adaptation of ''Theatre/TheCatAndTheCanary'', and the first UniversalHorror movie to be filmed with sound. As with ''Film/{{Dracula 1931}}'', a Spanish-language version of the movie (''La Voluntad del muerto'') was filmed simultaneously. Both versions are lost, though snippets of ''The Cat Creeps'' appear in the 1932 Universal comedy short ''Boo!''.

* The original version of the 2003 Disney documentary ''TheSweatbox'', which is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the music for ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove''. The process of scoring the film's soundtrack (composed by [[ThePolice Sting]]) was held in a cramped sound stage that was nicknamed "The Sweatbox", but grew in nature to encompass the state of the film's troubled production. The doc (directed by Sting's wife Trudi) chronicled the change during the production from its original title ''Kingdom of the Sun'' to the final product, and the filmmakers' growing horror when they realized the original version was ''terrible''. The documentary was screened for a limited time at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2002 in order to qualify for consideration for the Academy Awards, but it has been barred from release (perhaps indefinitely) by Disney.

** There was an happy ending: The 2013 Blu-Ray release gives us The Final Cut wich at 94 minutes restores thought missing "Orchard scene" amongst many other smaller cuts throught the film. It does however, except the thematicly important church scene at the very beginning, completely cut the "Mainland-prologue.

* ''Film/TheLandBeforeTime'' has eleven minutes cut from the final film for being too scary and intense. All that remains of those eleven minutes are some stills and production sketches.

* The original cut of the silent film ''Film/{{Greed}}'' was '''9 hours long'''. Most of that footage has been lost, and even Turner Classic Movies's four-hour cut of it replaces a lot of the footage with still photos just to keep the story intact.

* The One of cinema's greatest tragedies is the fate of Erich von Stroheim's ''Film/{{Greed}}''. Its original cut of the silent film ''Film/{{Greed}}'' was '''9 a whopping '''nine hours long'''. Most long''', and considered by those who were fortunate enough to see to be a masterpiece. Unfortunately, the studio ordered it chopped down without Stroheim's involvement, and the cut pieces were destroyed. Thus, most of that footage has been lost, and even lost. Even Turner Classic Movies's four-hour cut of it replaces a lot of the footage with still photos just to keep the story intact.

* The second ever Franchise/SherlockHolmes movie, released in 1916 and simply titled Sherlock Holmes, was thought lost forever, [[http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-29474334 until it was found mislabeled]] in the French Film Archive in Paris in 2014. This is especially important since it stars William Gillette, the man who first performed Sherlock Holmes on Stage for many years and are the TropeCodifier for many Sherlock-isms like "Elementary Dear Watson" and him smoking a Calabash pipe (he needed a pipe that could be seen from the back row). So in many ways this is the first time ever we are able to see the original Sherlock Holmes! The first ever Sherlock Holmes Film, A Study in Scarlet, released in 1914, remains missing however.

* Yet another "lost movie": the infamous 1994 Creator/RogerCorman produced ''Film/TheFantasticFour''. The story began when Constantin Film optioned the rights to make a Fantastic Four feature film with a planned budget of $40 million. Unfortunately they couldn't raise the money on time and the option was about to expire so they brought Corman on board who reduced the budget to $1.5 million and made it within a one month shooting schedule which should give you a good estimate to its quality. From that point onward, accounts differ. According to StanLee, Constantin Film never planned to release the movie and made it only to keep the rights and basically blackmail Marvel into giving them a substantial sum in exchange for the movie never seeing the light of day (depending on the legend, Marvel either locked the movie in a vault or had Avi Arad himself ''burn the negatives''), whereas Creator/RogerCorman claims one of the other producers managed to raise the intended money, bought the distribution rights from Corman via a clause in his contract and simply chose not to release it. 9 years later, Constantin Film produced the now well known 2005 ''Fantastic Four'' and the rest is history. These days, one of the few ways you can see the movie is via bootleg copies sold at comic book conventions.

* ''TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' is a rather interesting example here. Creator/RichardWilliams spent decades trying to make this an animated classic, yet it was [[ExecutiveMeddling screwed up by the many executives]] that held on to the film. The original cut was left in the shelf for decades due to Williams having to deal with other works being made. Eventually, he managed to get further work done and tried to license the film to Warner Bros. for release, but Williams couldn't finish it in time, and Disney had [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} its own]] ''A Thousand and One Nights'' story in development. As a result, WB terminated the deal and the executives forced Williams out of the project. Soon afterwards, the project suffered heavy editing and outsourcing in order for the film to be completed faster, and was released to heavy panning by animation lovers and critics across the board. This made Williams extremely devastated, leaving his career in ruins. The original, unfinished left unseen for decades until it was finally shown, half remastered, as the "Recobbled Cut", retaining most of the elements of the original print and some scenes that were never even finished.

* Jerry Lewis' ''Film/TheDayTheClownCried'', about a clown who insults Hitler and ends up a Pied Piper to the children of a Jewish concentration camp. People are split on if keeping it suppressed is a good thing or not. Apart from the question of good taste, the project's [[ScrewedByTheLawyers legal ownership is disputed]]. The film remains unfinished; post production work was never completed. It's also widely rumored the original negative (which the studio, not Lewis, kept) has been lost.

However, as stated before, the legal ownership dispute (plus the fact that some of the parties in said dispute [[AuthorExistenceFailure are dead]]) still leaves the film indefinitely lost.
