THE LOST WORLD (1925) starring Wallace Beery with Bessie Love and Lloyd Hughes starts with Professor Challenger facing a skeptical press corps when he asserts that giant dinosaurs are alive and flourishing in the farthest depths of the Amazon.

Malone’s paper funds an expedition to South America to rescue Maple White, who has been marooned at the top of a high plateau.
