David Hedison was reluctant about making the film as he didn't think the material was any good. Seeing 'Jill St John' dressed in a pink outfit with a poodle on set didn't do much to make him think differently. Nevertheless, he applied himself anyway, to the extent that Irwin Allen offered him the lead in his next film, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961). Hedison turned it down but would later take a part in Allen's TV series based on the submarine film. See more »
In the exterior shots of the helicopter, Manuel Gomez can be seen in a tiny cockpit on top flying it (this also houses much of the rotor engine). When they approach the plateau, the interior cockpit expands to accommodate the Professor and the rest of the cast. See more »
This film was shown a couple of times in the " Saturday Night At The Movies " slot on BBC 1 in the early 1970s and being a young child at the time I enjoyed it immensely . Come on lads if you're six years old any movie featuring dinosaurs in the present day is a movie highlight
It goes without saying that my enthusiasim for THE LOST WORLD has waned in later life . It has a totally B movie quality to it and is rather unsophisticated . There is still some amusement to be had at the special effects . Nowadays thanks to the power of technology we can watch convincing dinosaurs thudding around but in the 1960s we had to put up with actors standing in front of some back projection pretending they're frightened of a couple of giant lizards with massive fins stuck on them . Oh well at least the cheese factor means it's more entertaining than JURASSIC PARK: THE LOST WORLD
