Musical remake of Frank Capra's celebrated 1937 classic of the same title; about a group of passengers who survive an airplane crash in the Tibetan mountains and find their Shangri-La. Highlighted by rousing Burt Bacharach/Hal David songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars A first-class DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment October 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Much has been said about the film already, so I will limit my thoughts to the DVD itself, which is a real treat.

SPECIAL FEATURES (as written on the packaging):

Original Song Demos by Burt Bacharach (with photo gallery)
Ross Hunter Short - a 36-minute film
Original Trailers and TV Spots
Ross Hunter on the way to Shangri-La - 10-minute featurette
Alternate Scene - "I Come To You."

The language is listed as English, Dolby Digital. No mention of a new 5.1 mix anywhere, so this was likely a mistake in the press release, sadly. The audio is actually 2.0 Mono, 48 khz, 192 kbps. Video is 2.40:1 Anamorphic Widescreen. Running time is listed as "approx." 149 minutes. Region 1.

Starting with the audio, even if it's not a new 5.1 mix, as an advance Sony press release (and subsequently many websites) indicated, it's a wonderfully robust mono soundtrack, fully restored. Crystal-clear high frequencies and rich full bass sounds. As for the video, the movie looks fantastic. It's 2.40:1 Anamorphic widescreen. Colors are saturated, skin tones are natural, and detail is incredible. I noticed things I'd never seen before in the set decoration, the costume fabrics, etc. The vibrant green for the interior of the airplane hull, the crimson of the monks' robes, the eye-popping hues of the flowers during "The World Is a Circle." Detail holds up really well in the shadows, too, during the darker scenes. Noise is kept to a minimum, but I see no obvious use of noise-reduction. This is just an incredibly good remastering job. Short of having the disc in HD, I don't think it could look any better.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST!!! June 11, 2006
Format:VHS Tape
The critics tore this movie apart. I was blown away by a musical

of this caliber in 1973. If you like Meet Me In St. Louis, Sound

Of Music, Goodbye Mr. Chips, Finnegan's Rainbow, South Pacific,

Annie Get Your Gun, Annie, Flower Drum Song, In The Good Old

Summertime, New York New York, Yentl, The Wizard Of OZ, Singing

In The Rain, Band Wagon, etc., you will like this musical. I have the original 1937 Lost Horizon, but I do not think many

would appreciate it now. I do, but I am also appreciate good

musicals. Lost Horizon (1973) is such a musical. It takes you

to a place you can get lost in for two and a half hours and hate

to leave. The music is composed by two giants in the industry

and to say they had a bad day just doesn't convince me! If you

like musicals (especially at such a high technical level) see

this one. There is no DVD, but I for one would get it without

hesitation. That is my analysis. Judge for yourself and don't

let someone like Ms. Parisi try to disassemble something that

was never made to impress the critics especially in the cynical and jaded 70's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not "Lost" - Faith Found March 14, 2010
Format:VHS Tape
Critics can go suck eggs!

The number one rule of reviewing is: Take it for what it is, not for what you wish it was!

I saw the movie in the theater and have never seen it since. My father bought the soundtrack (I have no idea why. He never saw the movie) and I just about wore it out on my little, portable "monophonic record player", a cheap plastic thing I can't remember how I acquired.
I was just 13 and 14 around that time and was finding reasons to live hard to come by. No, this movie didn't save my life, but it pointed me in the right direction: faith, family, friends, community. And it warned me of the pitfalls: materialism, pride, arrogance, deception.

Heavy messages from a corny musical with clumsy lyrics and bad screenwriting, I know. But perhaps I should have said, take it for what it is for you; not for what you think it ought to be.

The fact is, the opening song spoke to my own despairing, angst-ridden teen-age heart. "Have you ever dreamed of a place far away from it all where the air you breath is soft and clean and children play in fields of green? And the sound of guns doesn't sound in your ears anymore? There's a lost horizon waiting to be found. There's a lost horizon where the sound of guns doesn't pound in your ears anymore."

Also, each character is facing a life in the world that does not satisfy their heart. Who can't relate to that? Sally Kellerman's character tries to kill herself! Bobby Van, a stereotypical unfunny comic discovers what he craves is not fame and fortune, but acceptance and loving recognition. George Kennedy finds fulfillment not in unearned wealth but in using his best gifts to make life better for his community (I know, I know!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great movie for people who have a soul May 27, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
Forget the pompous critics that are so full of themselves that they can't let this movies tunes play with their heart cords, which is what it does best. This is a wonderfull movie with great uplifting messages and songs that I heard once in my teens and touched my life forever. Talks about the magic that pure and real feelings can bring out of one's heart!

I want the DVD, but can't seem to find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Underrated
This is a 1970's movie with great stars. It got horrible reviews, much because it is clean and definitely family friendly. It is serious, yet corny. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Wife loves it. Too wierd for me.
It gave me an entertaining night for $12.00. The wife and kids loved it. I found it a weird musical. I enjoy musicals but this is too much 1970'3 for me.
