The first film adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic novel about a land where prehistoric creatures still roam.
For decades, the film could be seen only in an abridged version about an hour in length. In 2016, a 2K restoration by Lobster Films was completed (with the support of the Academy Film Archive, the Archive of Modern Conflict, the Blackhawk Film Collection, the Library of Congress, the Narodni Filmarchiv and the UCLA Film and Television Archive), combining portions of eleven film elements to present the most complete reconstruction of the film believed possible, clocking in at just under an hour and forty minutes.
And I'm not here tonight to defend my statements - - but to demand that a committee be formed to go back to the Lost World with me -...
At the beginning of their boat journey in the Amazon forest, a bird appears in the bushes at the right side of the screen. The bird is obviously thrown into the shot by someone.
A new 2K restoration was released on Blu-ray Disc in 2017. This is the most complete version of the film available since the movie's original release.
