Lost Horizon

We have featured this one before and of course it was made well before the fifties, but well worth having another look at this wonderful set.

Lost Horizon (1937). Shangri-La has become synonymous with paradise, and practically everyone, not just filmgoers, recognise the name. When Frank Capra filmed James Hilton’s novel, his set designers came up with an unforgettable vision of the exotic Himalayan home of ageless monks and their Utopian community. The grounds are complete with reflecting pools, wandering ornamental wildfowl, conifers, and weeping Chinese trees. Dominating it all are the radiant blue skies and brilliant sunlight of Southern California.
