Brandon De Wilde,
While escaping war-torn China, a group of Europeans crash in the Himalayas, where they are rescued and taken to the mysterious Valley of the Blue Moon, Shangri-La. Hidden from the rest of the world, Shangri-La is a haven of peace and tranquility for world-weary diplomat Richard Conway. His ambitious brother, George, sees it as a prison from which he must escape, even if it means risking his life and bringing destruction to the ancient culture of Shangri-La.Written by

As of 2015, this marks as the last screenplay for a theatrical movie written by Larry Kramer. In Larry Kramer in Love and Anger (2015), the writer revealed that he isn't proud of his script for this movie, but acknowledges that the deal he made with producers for this work (along with some other great investments) made him free of financial worries for the rest of his life. He became a successful playwright and LGBT rights activist. See more »

"Lost Horizon" was cut by 23 minutes after its theatrical release. The deleted footage consisted of three songs: "I Come To You", "If I Could Go Back", and "Where Knowledge Ends, Faith Begins"; plus two reprises of "Living Together, Growing Together" were cut, and a fertility dance sequence was also edited out. Pioneer reinstated the three songs for a 1992 Laserdisc release whilst the remaining footage was restored for the 2011 DVD version. See more »
This movie is one on the forgotten musicals. The Burt Bacharach-Hal David music alone is worth the price of the film. Almost all reviewers say it is a bomb, but after seeing it three times it grows on you. The music is TERIFFIC!
