Long-Lost Reels Of 1927's 'Metropolis' Recovered

Paula Felix-Didier of the Museo del Cine in Buenos Aires, Argentina, discovered more than 20 minutes of missing film footage from the classic science fiction silent movie Metropolis in her museum's archives. German filmmaker Fritz Lang directed the film, and three reels have been missing almost since its premiere in 1927.

Felix-Didier, the museum's director, talks with Deborah Amos.
