Description
Ronald Colman and Jane Wyatt star in this lavishly produced classic about the enchanted paradise of Shangri-La where time stands still.

Frank Capra's enduring masterpiece, Lost Horizon had a running time of 132 minutes upon its initial release in 1937. For a World War II re-issue, 24 minutes were cut to tone down the films pacifist message. Film preservationist Robert Gitt, working over a period of twenty-five years, has utilized footage found all over the world to restore a number of missing scenes. With extraordinary art direction, the set of Shangri-La is considered the largest ever built in Hollywood - winning designer Stephen Goosson a 1937 Academy Award. Furthermore, the budget for the picture was staggering and cost almost four times the amount of any Columbia film at the time; an equivalent cost of approximately $30-$40 billion today. Lost Horizon is considered an exception among Capra's work for its deviation from his usual upbeat "American" theme - and continues to capture the imagination of the viewing public today.

    We were so pleased that Turner Classic Movies went to the enormous trouble of re restructuring this classic movie. This is one that we will watch over and over.

            I watch classic movies @ home. I am an avid classic movie fan. This movie is a must-see for classic movie fans, and for Ronald Coleman fans specifically. Some of the movie was lost over the years, but they have restored it and there are a few still shots with dialogue. This is priceless, and I am glad I purchased it.

                Like Casablanca, this film stays with you a lifetime! It highlights and blends together an odd assortment of people with different issues, while calling the viewer to ponder their own path in life. Directed by Capra, the performance of Ronald Colman, Jane Wyatt,Sam Jaffe, Tom Mitchell and Edward Everett Horton are excellect in this universal classic

                  Frank Capra directs Ronald Coleman (1937, the same year as "The Prisoner of Zenda"!), Jane Wyatt, and Edward Everett Horton, among other cast members. This is the complete Capra-original soundtrack and picture (minus seven minutes filled in with freeze-frames and studio stock photographs). Special Features include historically-interesting Before-/After-Restoration reflecting the politics of WWII-era 1937.

                        In an age of over-hyped celebrities, and movies which seem little more than introduction to fashion-plate runways and tabloid fodder, this Capra film is practically a trip to Nirvana (or, at the least, Shangri-La). The efforts made at restoring the film to its greater original grandeur reveals the love and respect which "Lost Horizon" still engenders in later generations of movie fans.

                          This is an all time classic film which is sadly missing some of it's best scenes and again, the restoration is good but impossible to duplicate the quality of the original. How very sad that I am old enough to remember the complete version on TV decades ago. Whatever happened to it makes me wish I had a time machine to bring it back! But I thank God for the people who's devotion has saved most of it and who also added the missing pieces as a separate feature on the DVD.

                              This is my wife's favorite movie and a X-Mass present. If it is restored like it says on the CD cast it will be the best present for her ever. Will view the movie after we open our presents. Will give you a review after that if you send another review form. I intend to buy more movies after that.

                                    Though I love the book that this was taken from, I also like the movie very much. I have always been a Ronald Coleman fan. The story deviates from the book a good deal, but the movie is still a favorite from years ago.
