C.P. Czarnecki wrote:No no, I didn't mean that Welles kept that scene in his possession, I meant that he was able to retain it in the film, i.e. the re-shot scene was not used. Apparently he said that in the Director's Guild talk.

The extra scenes had been there since 1928. I am a fan of Metropolis but the interesting thing for Welles fans is that if Ambersons were to be found it doesn't necessarily follow that the film woud have decayed. This is one of the things I have always been concerned about. Lang's film is over a dozen years longer than Ambersons.
I still retain the hope Amberson's could still be found.
Presumably these folks are not ignorant of the amazing compromise hollywood has forced upon the majorty of its creators, not only Mr. Welles
