Based on a novel by A. Conan Doyle, this is the first of several versions of the book. Professor Challenger (Wallace Beery) insists that dinosaurs still live in the headwaters of the Amazon. An expedition is funded, and, indeed, the good professor is correct. Good special effects for the time, and this silent film holds up well today.
