Section 10: Scene & Intertitle Listings

Part 1

Introduction

The following is a detailed description of Fritz Lang's 1927 silent film classic Metropolis, broken down scene by scene, intertitle by intertitle. It is presented in four parts, with approximately 2000 lines briefly describing individual scenes and intertitles. The information contained in the table below is based primarily on the Digital Disc Entertainment (DDE) 1998 Video CD version of the film, run at 24 frames per second and deriving from an early 1960s American version of the film. Additional material is sourced from the Harry Davidson tinted print in the National Film and Sound Archives, Canberra, Australia (videotape copy run at 16 frames per second), and the Munich FilmMuseum restoration of 1995. Other assorted editions were also consulted, including the Georgio Moroder version of 1984. The times given within the table (minutes : seconds) refer primarily to the DDE version, with times from other versions given in brackets where extra scenes are included. Times associated with the original November 1926 edition of the film (as contained in the German intertitle card listing) are also indicated for comparison. They highlight the substantial discrepancies which now exist between the director's original cut - which ran for 228 minutes @ 16 frames per second, and extant versions of the film such as the Georgio Moroder edition which runs for only 83 minutes @ 24 frames per second. This represents a decrease of some 45% on the original film length.
