Arthur Conan Doyle’s epic tale comes to life in this classic from the silent era. Bessie Love, Lewis Stone, and Wallace Beery star as explorers who learn that dinosaurs still exist in South America. Of course, the expedition can’t end without them trying to bring a prehistoric creature back to London, which results in catastrophe. This was the first full­-length feature film to utilize stop-­motion animation in the creation of its creatures. The painstaking process perfectly enables us to see the mighty prehistoric monsters clash with modern lovers in a most remarkable story of love, romance, and amazing adventure! (BW)
