THE LOST WORLD (1925)
THE LOST WORLD (1925) starring Wallace Beery with Bessie Love and Lloyd Hughes starts with Professor Challenger facing a skeptical press corps when he asserts that giant dinosaurs are alive and flourishing in the farthest depths of the Amazon. Newspaper reporter Edward Malone learns that this claim originates from a diary given to him by fellow explorer Maple White’s daughter, Paula. Malone’s paper funds an expedition to South America to rescue Maple White, who has been marooned at the top of a high plateau. Joined by renowned hunter John Roxton, the group goes to South America, where they do indeed find a plateau inhabited by prehistoric creatures. This is a great silent feature, with enhanced musical soundtrack and other enhanced digital features, including the rich sepia-tone color.
