F&C1925: The Lost World

That has to be the worst blackface in the history of blackface.

I listened to Thighpaulsandra instead of the overly jaunty soundtrack.

Well… I kinda liked this film. It’s really quite wonky in places, and it seems to be edited by someone who doesn’t mind repetitious scenes. (This is a “restored” versjon created by adding all scenes that existed in eight different versions found.) But it’s kinda charming. It’s not a good film, but it’s a likable film.

I googled it right now, and it seems like the word “tedious” is used to describe it quite often. And that’s the 60 minute version. I’m watching the 90 minute version.

The Lost World. Harry O. Hoyt. 1925.
