GME DVD Distribution - GME Presents a New Digital Restoration of THE LOST WORLD  Now Available for Institutional Use

True to its title, the original, 10-reel version of THE LOST WORLD effectively disappeared from circulation in 1929—all known positive prints destroyed—a move by First National Pictures to help clear the way for another film utilizing special effects and Willis O’Brien’s cutting-edge animation techniques: KING KONG. For more than 80 years, only abridged editions of THE LOST WORLD remained in existence until now. This Blu-ray edition (published by Flicker Alley, and also available in a DVD MOD version) of THE LOST WORLD is the most complete reconstruction of the film.
