Silents in the Library: The Lost World
1925, 110 mins
Australian Premiere of the Digitally restored edition with live music.
Every larger-than-life creature feature, from King Kong to Godzilla to Jurassic Park, owes a debt to the original The Lost World, the granddaddy of giant monster movies. Based on an adventure fantasy by Arthur Conan Doyle, it's the story of a maverick scientist (Wallace Beery) who finds a land that time forgot on a plateau deep within the South American jungles, and comes back to London with a captured brontosaur to prove it. His expedition includes Bessie Love, the daughter of an explorer who disappeared on the previous expedition, and big-game hunter Lewis Stone.
