Lost Horizon

 (1973)

Lost Horizon Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

This retelling of the classic tale of James Hilton's Utopian lost world plays out amid musical production numbers and pop music. While escaping war-torn China, a group of Europeans crash in the Himalayas, where they are rescued and taken to the mysterious Valley of the Blue Moon, Shangri-La. Hidden from the rest of the world, Shangri-La is a haven of peace and tranquility for world-weary diplomat Richard Conway. His ambitious brother, George, sees it as a prison from which he must escape, even if it means risking his life and bringing destruction to Shangri-La's ancient culture.

For more about Lost Horizon and the Lost Horizon Blu-ray release, see Lost Horizon Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Peter Finch, Liv Ullmann, Sally Kellerman, George Kennedy, Charles Boyer, John Gielgud

Lost Horizon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Lost Horizon is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. My hunch is this must be the same master that Columbia Classics utilized for their MOD DVD last year; I had a sneaking suspicion it was an HD master based on the clarity of the image, and I'm now more convinced than ever. This also puts the lie to those who spout "insider knowledge" about elements being "permanently lost" when no such thing has happened. For years the prevailing wisdom was that the sequences excised from Lost Horizon after its roadshow premiere were gone forever, but they're obviously here, intact, and looking just fantastic. (There is perhaps— emphasis on perhaps—one brief reprise of "Living Together, Growing Together" missing, right at the edit where George Kennedy's water delivery system is introduced.) The image here is very sharp and well detailed for the most part, though some midrange shots show a somewhat soft ambience, especially toward the middle of the frame, strangely enough. Colors are bright and vivid, if just slightly red tinged some of the time. Robert Surtees' glorious cinematography pops with a lot of clarity and precision here, though the increased resolution of the Blu-ray does reveal some of the literal seams in things like matte paintings (see screencap 1 for a potent example).


Lost Horizon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Lost Horizon features a great sounding lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that very ably supports both the dialogue and sung moments of the film. (If you're a true Lost Horizon freak, you know that Columbia Classics MOD mistakenly released the first batch of DVDs with only a Dolby Digital 2.0 mix, despite advertising a 5.1 mix. To their credit, they quickly corrected the error and released a new batch with a nice sounding Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. And, yes, of course I have both.) The surround activity here is probably a bit on the conservative side, though the Bacharach score regularly spills into the side and rear channels. There are some great foley effects however that do populate the surrounds, notably the whistling winds the intrepid survivors encounter as they make their way to Shangri-La. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is quite wide for a musical.
