Wild in the streets (never trust a vegetarian),
This review is from: The Lost World [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The eyes of the civilized world have never seen adventure and romance like this. A silent film with sound effects.
Professor Challenger (Wallace Beery) comes in to the possession of Professor Whites lost diary. It was brought to him by the surviving daughter Miss Paula (Bessie Love). When he is not mangling newspaper reporters he intends to prove the story of a plateau in Brazil still harbors the descendents of dinosaurs.
We see all the members of the expedition to both prove the existence of dinosaurs but also to save Paula's father. The adventure allows us to see fallen trees and dinosaur fights eight years before King Kong repeats the performance.
A friendly brontosaurus nibbles at the fallen tree that was to be their escape rout. So it looks like Paula will have to learn to love Edward (Lloyd Hughes) a news paper man that endeared himself to the curmudgeon Challenger. And what is to become of Sir John Roxton (Lewis Stone) who made no secret that he also is in love with Paula?
Always lurking in the background is the evil minded Ape-man (no not Tarzan) Bull Montana.
