  • One of Capra's best

    This magnificent film ranks right up there with "It Happened One Night" and "It's A Wonderful Life" as one of Frank Capra's best. Ronald Coleman heads a fine cast, which along with the writing and direction are outstanding. This movie isn't on TCM that often, but even if one has stay up late to watch it as I did, it is well worth it.

  • Somewhere Over the Rainbow.....

    In my mind, one of the all-time greats. Ronald Coleman is supremely sympathetic in the lead role supported by a group of grade A character actors. This is a magical mystical premise that is at once is logical and believeable and completely fantastic, and highlights a period in history before we knew everything about everything. There is a Shangra-La, somewhere.

    A stunning fantasy film from Capra. Colman is a British diplomat who along with Mitchell, Howard & Horton are brought to the mystical valley of Shangri-La, where Colman begins a romance with Wyatt. Colman leads an impressive cast, particularly Warner who earned an nomination for his supporting performance. Oscars were given for the films production design & editing, helping to adapt Hilton's story, which was refined into a simple story of peace. An impressive & spectacular film from Capra. I give it a 5/5.

  • Highly ambitious film

    • Mr. Blandings
    • 8/5/11

    Capra may have bitten off more than he could chew with this adaptation but the result is still magnificent. Ronald Colman is excellent and his supporting cast, particularly E. Everett Horton and Thomas Mitchell, are superb.

    ****1/2

  • MODERN ARCHITECTURE

    • william gauslow
    • 1/23/11

    Modern architecture is on display in this movie. A combination of the Bauhaus and Frank Lloyd Wright. Perhaps Frank Capra thought a new society would have a new architecture.

  • AMERICANS REPRESENTED

    • william gauslow
    • 1/23/11

    Interesting, the only American character is a woman who is a : whiner, cry baby and emotionally out of control. I think Americans will fold like a lawn chair if this recession gets any worse. Those Americans that have already folded are called Teabaggers.

  • A TRUE CLASSIC

    THIS IS AN EXCITING MOVIE.IT IS FULL OF ADVENTURE.I AM GLAD THAT IT HAS BEEN RESTORED FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO SEE.IT IS A BRILLANT SCREENPLAY.RONALD COLEMAN IS GREAT IN THE LEAD ROLE.IT IS A TRUE CLASSIC.

  • Paradise on Earth

    • Dan
    • 4/10/07

    A very interesting and intriguing film. A fantastic screenplay in which I think is ahead of it's time. A plane goes down in the Tibetten Mountains and the passengers are led to a valley of paradise. Thomas Mitchell , a great character acter, makes this film a magical experience. Lost Horizon becomes a new beginnig for Ronald Colman's character. A great film that stands the test of time.

  • My favorite of all movies

    • Phoebe Folse
    • 2/23/07

    I'm a Ronald Colman fan, and the story is inspiring. American history showes even a President had someone look for Shangri-La....as well as other Countries

  • Absolutely Fantastic

    • Deborah McEvoy-Davis
    • 2/15/07

    Such a great, moving and magical story - a believeable fantasy! Does what a fine picture should - entertain and sow seeds of wonder. And Ronald Coleman too! It doesn't get better than this.

  • Finding Shangri-La...

    • Bob Galvin-Oliphant
    • 2/23/06

    Fine cast, led by Ronald Colman, in this Frank Capra fantasy adventure. So much better than the 1973 remake!
