| ||This is the famous 1972's musical remake of the 1937 Frank Capra 'Lost Horizon', starring Peter Finch, Michael York, Sally Kellerman, and George Kennedy. This uplifting musical is presented in it's original ratio format WIDESCREEN. |
"Lost Horizon" was cut by several minutes shortly after it's release. Most of these cuts consisted of musical sequences. An attempt was made to restore these scenes for this edition, but an exhaustive search through the Columbia's achives proved only partly successful. The songs "I Come to You", "If I could Go Back", and Where Knowledge Ends" have been reinstated as they appeared in the original roadshow version fo the film, although the reprise of "If I Cold Go Back", two reprises of "Living Together", and the beaufiful fertility dance sequence remain missing. The original stereo soundtrack has also been restored, reproducing the rich orchestrations with unprecedented clarity. The quality of these restored sequences is not first rate, so they will stand out from the rest of the film quite noticeably, but better to have them included in any condition, than to let them remain lost forever!
Plot: As five passengers escaping from a war-zone together, they survive a tragic plane crash in the Himalayas and discover the strange utopian world of Shangri-La.
The dvd is in English language, playable worldwide, Widescreen, and the audio is Dolby Stereo.
