Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I’ve featured Metropolis before, with a particularly nice shot featuring the lovely Brigitte Helm with her Maria helmet off taking a sip of water while some dude held a giant, industrial-sized blow dryer on her.
Fritz Lang’s visual masterpiece is ripe for this column. The size of the spectacle is enormous, the kind of production we don’t get to see anymore thanks to the ease and comparative cheapness of computer trickery. That might be good for modern movie-makers, but it makes for boring behind the scenes pics.
This pic is far from boring, from the climactic flooding finale as Maria tries to help the city’s children. This truly is an epic shot from an epic film. Hope you enjoy!
Enjoy the pic and click for the bigger version.
Tomorrow I leave for the Sundance and the pic !
