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. Newspaper reporter Edward Malone learns that this claim originates from a diary given to him by fellow explorer Maple White’s daughter, Paula. Malone’s paper funds an expedition to South America to rescue Maple White, who has been marooned at the top of a high plateau. Joined by renowned hunter John Roxton, the group goes to South America, where they do indeed find a plateau inhabited by prehistoric creatures. This is a great silent feature, with enhanced musical soundtrack and other enhanced digital features, including the rich sepia-tone color. In LOST CONTINENT (1951) with Cesar Romero we have Major Joe Nolan (Cesar Romero) as the head of a mission to an uncharted part of the South Pacific to retrieve an atomic rocket that went off course and vanished. Their search plane then crashes on a remote tropical island with towering cliffs and volcanoes. They find a lone native girl, Acquanetta (Tarzan and the Leopard Woman, 1946), who indicates something fell from the sky onto a forbidding plateau that dominates part of the island. The party reaches the top despite numerous obstacles and deaths. At the top, they discover a lush jungle inhabited by dinosaurs. They have found a lost world of prehistoric dinosaurs and vast radioactive uranium fields, so powerful that they cause rockets and planes to go off course.
