Synopsis:
Frank Capra's adaptation of James Hilton's novel that follows British diplomat and historian Robert Conway (Ronald Colman) as he comes to the rescue of four refugees during the Chinese Revolution. The refugees - his younger brother, George (John Howard), scientist Alexander P. Lovett (Edward Everett Horton), con man Henry Branard (Thomas Mitchell) and ailing prostitute Gloria Stone (Isabel Jewell) - escape the revolution on a plane, but instead of flying to safety they end up crashing in the Himalayas. Upon climbing out of the wreckage the passengers find themselves in the hidden city of Shangri-La, a paradisiacal place where the air is clean and time stands still.

dissappointed - Lost Horizon review by wt

Spoiler Alert
16/01/2018

Very dated and the acting was poor generally. I wasn't sure if it was being played for laughs which was a shame because the film made a number of social points which were ahead of it's time but very relevant today's cosumer society.
