The Lost World
Michael Rennie – Jill St. John 1960
Professor George Edward Challenger gathers an expedition to return to the headwaters of the Amazon, where he claims to have seen giant dinosaurs. He’s accompanied by scoffing colleague Professor Summerlee ,big-game hunter Lord John Roxton and reporter Ed Malone. Newspaper heiress Jennifer Holmes and her brother David force their way in by threatening to withhold their father’s financing. Joined by the shifty Costa and brooding helicopter pilot Manuel Gomez, the group finds Challenger’s isolated plateau and begins an adventure dodging ferocious dinosaurs, man-eating plants and primitive natives. Then we find out that Lord John Roxton was involved with a previous expedition. Burton White and several other explorers disappeared without a trace on the same plateau three years before.
