While escaping war-torn China, a group of Europeans crash in the Himalayas, where they are rescued and taken to the mysterious Valley of the Blue Moon, Shangri-La.
Yellow flowers planted on the set withered in the heat and had to be individually hand-painted back to the original colour to match footage already shot.
Well now, there you are. Here I am. And, where are we?
The library at Shangri-La is supposed to be a repository for the world's great literature, yet a number of "Readers' Digest Condensed Books" are visible on its shelves.
"Lost Horizon" was cut by 23 minutes after its theatrical release. The deleted footage consisted of three songs: "I Come To You", "If I Could Go Back", and "Where Knowledge Ends, Faith Begins"; plus two reprises of "Living Together, Growing Together" were cut, and a fertility dance sequence was also edited out. Pioneer reinstated the three songs for a 1992 Laserdisc release whilst the remaining footage was restored for the 2011 DVD version.
