Product Description

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.

This is a wonderful DVD containing a restored version of the 1925 First National movie The Lost World. This version is a combination of a nearly complete print found in the Czech Republic in 1992 and the existing video tape version. It took over 6 years to restore and the results are beautiful.
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.

The Lost World 1925 is a great film. I've read the book also.Not much teenagers watch silent films, but I do.(I'm 14,writing this now. It's a likable film with characters that make the film great.The dinosaurs we see are also likable.And the "Brontosaurus in London" part is the climax.This film that I bought runs for 63 minutes.I hope they show the 93 minute version on television.

Just so there is no misunderstanding this review is for the Eureka release, the one with the yellow background and an artists rendition of three of the characters on the cover.

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.

A wonderful film, and a wonderful DVD. Designed for the purpose of entertainment in 1925, it still manages to entertain even after over 75 years. The DVD is presented well with the best quality print available.

Willis O. Brien's special effects are still surprisingly good and way ahead of the 1960 version even if he was to perfect them further in King Kong (for which this film feels almost like a dress rehearsal at times), giving this first version of Arthur Conan Doyle's yarn an epic scale in the volcanic eruption and stampede sequences, while Wallace Beery is a perfect choice for Professor Challenger, embodying the gruff, belligerent nature of the character to a tee. There are changes to the novel - not only is Bessie Love brought along on the expedition to search for her lost father (with none of the comic relief chauvinism from Challenger found in the 1960 version) but the pterodactyl that terrifies the streets of London has been changed to a lumbering Brontosaurus, which is certainly a change for the better - but then Doyle's book is rather light on plot to begin with. The dinosaurs aren't as well integrated into the story as you might hope - usually it's cutaways to herds of dinosaurs in their natural habitat - and the racial stereotyping from Jules Cowles' blackface routine as 'Zambo' is painfully embarrassing and horribly unfunny (sample dialogue on seeing campfire smoke from the plateau: "That means our folks is still alive." "It may mean dat some of those cannibules dat drop dat rock down on us yistiddy am cookin' 'em in dar stew-pot!"). But it's hard not to like a film with dialogue like "What are you thinking of, Paula - in this lost world of ours?" or Challenger's immortal "My brontosaurus has escaped! Keep off the streets - until I recapture it!" and where our hero's rival for his girl back home's affections is called Percy Bumberry!Read more ›

This wonderful restoration of a seminal film that was destroyed by the studio at the start of the talkie era anticipating a remake (this materialised as “King Kong”). We only have this virtually complete and excellent print due to an unknown copy recently discovered in Prague.
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”.
