The Lost World Comes Alive
The Lost World Trailer (1925)
This is the trailer for the 1925 version of The Lost World, the silent film adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's book. The movie was directed by Harry O. Hoyt, but it was the groundbrealing stop motion animation by Willis O'Brien that stole the show, and was at the time often mistaken for genuine footage of real disonaurs! Eight years later he would treat the world to another hero born out of his handywork, the original King Kong, in the movie directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack.
Another noteworthy point is that Arthur Conan Doyle himself made a cameo appearance.

You can see the full film at The Filmhouse in February.
