I'm watching a crappy VHS dub of Lost Horizon now and the mountain climbing goes on forever.. When is someone going to sing a song?? Looking forward to this bizarre DVD release.

The Boy Friend DVD is such a treasure!
With Irma you gotta do something!

Quesstion Me An Answer! I'll take it...
The great thing with human brains is they're fanless, nice and quiet although I'm sure mine whistles a bit sometimes.

Lost Horizon can now be ordered at Warner Archive.


Apparently with the Fertility Dance restored...

I don't think the demand is out there for 'Song Of Norway' on DVD as much as it is/was for 'Lost Horizon'!

"

The blu ray of "Song of Norway" is being released early 2020.

The restored version of the 1937 film, from Columbia Pictures (now Sony), is great on Blu-ray.

EricMontreal22 said: "Oooh I hope this gets a Region 1 release as well. I haven't seen it since it used to show up on a cheap Canadian movie channel in the early 90s. As a big Bacharach/David fan, I admit I kinda love the soundtrack CD--half of it is genuinely awful btu the other half is actually pretty good, and the awful stuff falls into the so bad it's good category for me. It is kinda too bad that THIS was the only other full musical that they did aside from Promises, Promises (not counting the TV musical On the Flip Side.

From what I remember, it truly is a head scratcher of a musical, but I wouldn't say the worst ever.
"

The Boyfriend was recently TCM, and I recorded it, as I generally enjoyed over-blown Ken Russell movies.  I watched it in three seatings, and still didn't watch it to the end.  Then I remembered that the only reason I actually remembered it fondly was because of Glenda Jackson's intentionally over-the-top cameo as the injured diva.  I never liked the Boy Friend on stage, so it is probably saying something positive to say that what I saw I enjoyed better than the couple of stage productions I have seen.

Asfor Lost Horizon, it was one of the few movies that I remember walking out of less than half-way through; it was stultifyingly boring.

A bit of trivia here. The set for Lost Horizon was the old WB Camelot set
