* Many, ''many'' old silent and early sound films (including those of superstars like Creator/ThedaBara and Creator/ClaraBow) are now considered lost (partially or completely), simply because -- in an era well prior to rebroadcast opportunities like TV or home video -- it didn't make financial sense for the studios to care about keeping them around. The prints that do remain are usually those that were preserved in private collections. Creator/ThedaBara appeared in over two dozen films but only four have survived. According to Creator/MartinScorsece's Film Foundation, 90% of all American films made before 1929 are lost forever, while the [[GreatBigLibraryOfEverything Library of Congress]] estimates that 75% of all silent movies are lost forever.

** Some of the early Academy Award winners and nominees are missing. Including a best picture nominee (''The Patriot''), and a best actor winning performance (''The Way of All Flesh''). One of the first best picture nominees, ''The Racket'', was also missing for years...and when it was found, it sadly turned out to be just a standard gangster film.

** Before ''Music Land'', there was the ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academy_Award_Review_of_Walt_Disney_Cartoons Academy Award Review of Walt Disney Cartoons]]'' (1937). Released into theaters to promote ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' (which was coming out later that year), the movie was another package film, but this time comprised of five Academy Award-winning SillySymphonies shorts: ''WesternAnimation/FlowersAndTrees'', ''Disney/ThreeLittlePigs'', ''The Tortoise and the Hare'', ''Three Orphan Kittens'' and ''The Country Cousin''. Like ''Music Land'' the film had a narrator and transitions between the shorts, but unlike ''Music Land'', ''Academy Award Review'' was popular enough to be re-released into theaters in 1966, without narration and with four additional Oscar-winning shorts: ''Disney/TheOldMill'', ''FerdinandTheBull'', ''The Ugly Duckling'' and ''Lend a Paw''. Both the 1937 and 1966 cuts of the film were released on Laserdisc in Japan in 1985, the same year that the film was cut from the [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon canon]] alongside ''Music Land''. It hasn't been released since then, so [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes keep circulating the Laserdiscs]].

* ''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.

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.
