Frequently Bought Together
The Lost World created a worldwide sensation when it opened in 1925. When romance threw down the gauntlet to Edward Malone, not only did he realise another young woman s dreams and open the door to Professor Challenger to take a party deep into the unforgiving Brazilian jungle, he found himself in terrifying danger, in a pre-historic time, with no hope of escape.
Professor Challenger ridiculed for his speeches on living dinosaurs and desperate to prove their existence engineers the expedition with Malone to rescue Paula White s father (previously stranded on the plateau) and to further his research and show the mocking disbelievers that dinosaurs do still exist after all.
Initially unaware that their efforts are being closely followed by an ape-man science s missing link an early appearance of a pterodactyl only hints at what terrifying realities exist high on the isolated plateau.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes could barely have imagined that his script would be the inspiration and forerunner to King Kong, Godzilla, and Jurassic Park. This amazing film, originally believed to have been destroyed or lost forever, has been stunningly restored using a mixture of reconstruction techniques. The outcome is of a remarkable richness.
The Lost World is an incredible combination of original film history in the making, and modern techniques in skilled, caring hands.
Had it not been for The Lost World there would never have been King Kong or Jurassic Park.

The extra features are nice as well. There is a scrolling bio on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 12 minutes of Lost World dinosaur outtakes (found in Warner Brothers Stock Footage), and photos of items from the orginal press kit. The movie also contains a modern score and a traditional score. The title cards are new and it runs are the correct projection speed. This version contains about 30 minutes of additional footage that isn't on video cassette versions. A must for Sci Fi movie collectors.
Back in the 60s, before the Czech version was discovered in Prague I had an 8mm, five reel version of this film and I remember it well. On viewing this version I see that the missing footage consists of chunks of action taken out here and there, parts of scenes and in some cases, single shots. For example, the scene where the party fells a tree to cross the gap at the top of the plateau was present in my film version but the shot where Professor Summerlee stoops midway across to pick up a bug was missing. Also the scene where Challenger is bending trees down to use as a slingshot to hurl boulders at dinosaurs was present but the shot of Summerlee being thrown through the air was not. It seems that the missing scenes were taken from the best part of the film rather than the long winded first half. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for abridging it in this way. When we read in the printed notes that all known prints and negatives were destroyed in anticipation of a sound remake it just defies belief. Why DESTROY all prints just because they intended to make a new version? - Crazy.
Well, I must say that this is a good quality transfer nicely presented with all the different coloured tints restored, my 8mm version was black and white, and correct projection speed. It's good to see all the missing footage replaced, although apparently, this version is still not fully complete. Well, we never know, the last remaining elements may turn up someday in the future.
My grizzle with this version is that they have not used the original main titles at the start or the original dialogue title cards.Read more ›
The animated dinosaurs must have left audiences speechless in 1925; even now they stand up as outstanding examples of stop motion animation, in fact where the dinosaurs are fleeing the volcano one completely forgets the film was made eighty years ago.
From the star point of view it is one of Bessie Love’s best roles, although she had one of the longest film careers spanning 1916 to 1981 her career faded during the mid 1930s.
This is a multi tinted print commonly distributed at the time and comes with a long selection of animation out takes, and two alternative soundtracks, one traditional and one modern,
So roll up ladies and gentlemen, sit and marvel at the precursor of “King Kong”, “Jurassic Park” and “Godzilla”.
