Harry Hoyt directed the first film version of the dinosaur-inhabited land that time forgot, featuring wonderful early stop-motion animation by Willis O'Brien. The silent film, based on a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, features Lewis Stone and the great Wallace Beery as Professor Challenger, as the intrepid explorers who travel to a remote jungle of Brazil to prove the Professor's theories that some prehistoric life might yet still remain. When the company is attacked by an apelike human, they begin to believe, but they have yet to meet the terror and wonder of the supposedly lost Allosaurus, Stegosaurus and Pterodactyl, sixty-five million years past their expiration date!
Description by Image Entertainment:
Newly restored with fifty percent more footage than any version in seventy years, here is the model for "King Kong," "Jurassic Park" and "Godzilla." A world wide sensation when it opened on February 15, 1925, "The Lost World" is a story of living dinosaurs from the Jurassic age written by the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and starring a cast of stegosaurus, allosaurus, brontosaurus, triceratops, and pterodactyl under the technical direction of Willis H. O'Brien (King Kong, Mighty Joe Young) and a cast of actors under the direction of Harry O. Hoyt.
A zoology professor leads an expedition into the jungles of South America to find a lost world of prehistoric beasts. In order to prove his claims, he transports one of them, a brontosaurus, to London, where it breaks loose from its cage and terrorizes the city.
