Lost Horizon (1937)

Lost Horizon is a 1937 film in which a group of travelers find a utopian society in the Himalayan mountains. The film is based upon the James Hilton novel of the same name. It stars Ronald Colman, Jane Wyatt, John Howard, Margo, Thomas Mitchell, Edward Everett Horton, Isabel Jewell, H.B. Warner and Sam Jaffe.

The film was adapted by Sidney Buchman (uncredited) and Robert Riskin, and directed by Frank Capra. The 1937 film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.

It was remade as a musical in 1973, in which Shangri-La was strangely reminiscient of Gilligan's Island.
