This DVDTee includes both a DVD of Fritz Lang's epic 1927 film, Metropolis, and a tee shirt featuring the iconic original poster art. In this influential silent classic, set in a sprawling city of the future, a workers' uprising threatens to destroy the metropolis. In the 21st century, society has been divided into two classes--the lowly workers who live underground, and the wealthy ruling class who indulge in a decadent existence in the towering skyscrapers above. Until one day, when a member of the ruling class, lured below ground by an attractive female worker, is horrified by what he witnesses. He endeavors to help improve their plight, but a mad scientist and his evil robots are enlisted to thwart the young man and crush the labor reform efforts. Long considered a masterpiece of German Expressionism, Metropolis also remains the most expensive silent film ever made!

The transfer is the absolutely worst one they could have used! It was a silent movie, watch it that way! . It is also the shortest version available at 83 mins (the original was 139 mins).
I got it because of its importance to me as a film maker, not for the technical merits of the transfer to DVD, which looks worse than the VHS dub I had!
