Movie Night #16! Holy crap, we’re halfway through this madness. And tonight is the night we delve into silent films. Granted, some are more silent than others. But this time we’re going for the actually good film called The Lost World from 1925 and based on the Arthur Conan Doyle novel. Stop motion dinosaurs were a novelty in 1925. Reportedly, the first time people saw footage of a train speeding towards the camera, they flipped out because they had simply never seen it before. Now imagine people from 1925 watching Jurassic Park and how they would react. Ah, it makes me smile. When we invent time travel, I’m totally going and doing that. Anyway, this one’s a classic. Enjoy.
A restored version of the film is available on DVD.
