Here’s A Very Different Jurassic World – The Lost World (1925)

lw1In celebration of Jurassic World which is out and I’m sure heating up the multiplexes and will make somewhere around $241,549,387,320,148,824 this weekend before you even account for the overseas box office totals, I offer you this early stop motion dinosaur adventure.

The Lost World was produced in 1925 by First National Pictures and directed by Harry Hoyt. It is,, of course, based on the book by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and features stop-motion animation by the wondrous Willis O’Brien who would go on to create the effects for King Kong.

Fortunately, since the movie is now in the public domain, it’s easy to find for download if you wish, or you can just watch it right here.

Enjoy!
