** Two oft-bootlegged Superman pilots were produced in the early '60s. One of them was known as ''The Adventures of Super-Pup'' which was an incredibly ill-concieved funny-animal version of the character, but instead of animation, they used little people in fiberglass costumes. A better idea came in the form of ''The Adventures of Superboy'' which followed our hero's days in Smallville. The timeline is a bit questionable, as shots from the origin episode of TAOS appear in the opening sequence, but the show appears to take place in 1961 or so. While not as dreadful as Super Pup, it was a little dull and wasn't picked up. Superboy would have to wait almost twenty years.

* The [[BadExportForYou infamous American theatrical cut]] of ''Film/OnceUponATimeInAmerica'' has seemingly been never released on home video. Despite several claims to the contrary that it ''did'' see either a VHS or DVD release at one point, virtually all of the known existing home video releases of the film are instead edited versions of the universally-acclaimed director's cut, and if there actually ''was'' a home video release of the American theatrical cut at one point, [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes it's borderline impossible to find it now]]. Considering how said cut --[[ExecutiveMeddling which sloppily watered down director Sierra Leone's preferred non-linear four-hour cut into a chronological two-hour cut against his wishes]]-- was trashed by reviewers and heavily flopped at the box office; its lack of availability may (understandably) be [[OldShame a deliberate example]].

** The film had already been re-cut several times before the 1925 version was released, with additional scenes being shot by Edward Sedgewick after the original director Rupert Julian left the production. It's this version that was found in 2011. The original Rupert Julian cut, which was much closer to the book and featured the original novel ending where the Phantom lets Christine go and then dies of a broken heart, is still missing.

** This has also held up any release of the somewhat obscure Creator/ErrolFlynn movie ''The Perfect Specimen'', a rare screwball comedy which has Flynn (alongside Joan Blondell) PlayingAgainstType as a spineless milquetoast.

* The documentary/movie ''Film/GrizzlyMan'' has an ApocalypticLog that depicts an audio recording of Treadwell and his girlfriend's deaths from a bear. In the movie, Creator/WernerHerzog, the director, is shown listening to it, and he tells the owner of the clip to destroy it. However, it's locked away in a safe deposit box, with no intention of being released.

* The Taiwanese film ''Hai Mo'', released in 1975, is believed to be lost. A poster for the film is pretty much the only thing that has survived. Going by the poster illustrations and the English title "Sea of Monsters", it seems the plot revolved around sea monsters of some sort.

* The original ''[[Film/TheWickerMan Wicker Man]]'' had something like twelve minutes of footage removed after an early screening. With the possible exception of the original Media-Home Entertainment release, they've never been seen since. Creator/ChristopherLee, who considered this one of his best films, [[BerserkButton was NOT happy about this]]. A 2001 home video release restored some of these scenes, including the original opening scene - from a clearly inferior print, but still.
