OLDIE GOLDIES: Metropolis (1927)

This week on Oldie Goldies, I highlight a great film of the silent era - Metropolis. Released in 1927, this thematically rich film features impressive special effects and art direction, especially considering the technology available at the time. The film certainly influenced many of the sci-fi movies that followed.

Classic Set

Classic Costumes

Did you know?
Helm sustained cuts and bruises while in character as the robot, as the costume was rigid and uncomfortable.

  1. I agree with you. For something made in 1927, this movie is a miracle. I also liked it's story. Must see in my book.
