Battleship Potemkin: Restoration

Those of us with an interest in film will be pleased to hear that Sergei Eisenstein's revolutionary 1925 classic 'Battleship Potemkin' has been restored to its original form, including scenes originally cut due to graphic violence, proper translations of the original Russian intertitles, and a written introduction by Leon Trotsky that had been excised by Stalin. I don't know about you, but the version I saw on a DVD from Netflix a little while back definitely needed work.
The scene above is from the famous Odessa steps sequence, which has been imitated by countless directors, including most notably De Palma in 'The Untouchables'.
