Entertainment Reviews:


User Ratings: 445
Rating: 1/4 -- The material is so slight it can hardly bear the weight of music, and it sinks altogether during a series of the most incompetent and clumsy dance numbers I've ever seen. Full Review
Chicago Sun-Times
May 6, 2006
Rating: 2.5/5 -- The conjunction of truth and lies hardly seems accidental in a film that sets out to recall a kind of filmmaking now lost, but succeeds only in denting pleasant memories.
New York Times
May 6, 2006
At the moment the characters descend into the valley of Shangri-La, the film, in unconscious critical mimicry, goes downhill
Jan 26, 2009
Rating: 1/5 -- Just dull and forgettable, not the so-bad-it's-good camp classic some people insist.

Description by

When passengers survive a plane crash in the Himalayas they end up in the mystical world of Shangri-La, an idyllic oasis where art, culture and the knowledge of the world are treasured. In Shangri-La, the survivors learn about beauty, peace and serenity -- and, for some, true love.

Based on the classic James Hilton novel, with an all-star, award-winning cast, Lost Horizon is the ambitious musical remake of the Frank Capra classic. With deleted Burt Bacharach songs and sequences restored to the theatrical version of the film including: "The Fertility Dance/Living Together"; "Growing Together (Reprise)"; "If I Could Go Back"; "When Knowledge Ends (Faith Begins)"; and "I Come to You." Including special vintage featurettes, this much sought-after version of the film is packed with extras. Newly remastered.

Product Description:

James Hilton's beloved fantasy novel about the land of Shangri-La was given an awkward musical treatment in this extravagantly produced flop. Larry Kramer's screenplay stays close to the 1937 Frank Capra original, as a plane fleeing China crashes in the Himalayas and a mixed group of survivors discovers the magical, peaceful land of Shangri-La. Here the film becomes a full-fledged musical, with songs by Burt Bacharach and Hal David illustrating the distant realm's nature and the conflict that happiness causes amongst the survivors. Curiosity-seekers may be intrigued by the film's reputation as a notorious dud, but fans of the story would be better served by the classic original, despite a cast of well-respected names, including Peter Finch (in the Ronald Colman role), John Gielgud, Liv Ullmann, and Charles Boyer.

So glad this is coming out on DVD (DVD-R) Movie Lover: from Indian Wells, CA -- September, 12, 2011

I loved this movie when it originally came out in 1973. I am a musical fan and especially enjoy the music of Bacharach & David. There was much criticism of the movie when it came out, but I enjoyed the songs and the story and the sets. The film is jam-packed with big name stars of the time which makes it even more enjoyable. I am looking forward to getting this DVD-R. I have purchased another movie in this format and it worked perfectly. I recommend this film.
