Some very good points. But, if this footage from F13 7 is truly gone, lost, destroyed, or no longer exists...then how is there the shitty VHS workprint? All I am saying is that the director does not know what happened to every piece of film associated with the butchering of his film--especially a FRIDAY film through Paramount!!! His film was cut to shit and it wasn't by his hand. So, who did it and what became of the cut footage? And, yes, the newly-discovered footage from METROPOLIS was indeed "gone forever" a few years ago, but, voila!
