The Lost World

Lost World

A film by Harry O. Hoyt
Starring Wallace Beery, Bessie Love, Lloyd Hughes

Based on the 1912 novel of the same name by Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle (who makes an onscreen appearance!), this innovative and groundbreaking 1925 silent film featured amazing stop-motion animation from Willis O’Brien, years prior to his work on King Kong.

A group of explorers led by Professor Challenger (Wallace Beery) travel to the Amazonian jungle searching for a legendary secluded plateau where dinosaurs have managed to survive unmolested for millions of years. Joined by renowned hunter John Roxton, the group does indeed find the pre-historic creatures! They even manage to bring one alive back to London, which, if we’re being honest, was probably not the best idea… Restored print courtesy of the George Eastman House.
