The Lost World (13-Jul-1960)

Director: Irwin Allen

Writers: Irwin Allen; Charles Bennett

From novel: The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle

Keywords: Action/Adventure, Sci-Fi, Dinosaurs

Professor Challenger returns from a remote Amazon plateau where he claims to have discovered dinosaurs; he, Professor Summerlee, and a coterie (including Jill St. John garbed in pink stretchpants and red boots) venture forth on an expedition to verify his unlikely discovery. Intended originally to be stop-motion, the film lost much of its budget so the special effects consist of horns and fins glued to an assortment of small reptiles. Campy. Probably okay if you were 9 years old in 1960.
