Check out these amazing behind the scenes photographs from the classic sci-fi movie Metropolis from 1927. This was a gargantuan production for its time. Looking at all of these images, that is what really strikes you. The entire thing was massive.
Today massive productions are nothing and millions are spent just procuring actors alone. These photos really give you a sense of the sheer enormity of putting this movie together in that era and it really paved the way for many movies that came after it. The story represented in these stills are like a movie behind the movie. Love these.
