This retelling of the classic tale of James Hilton's Utopian lost world plays out uneasily amid musical production numbers and Bacharach 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 the ancient culture of Shangri-La. Written by

I came across this moldy on AMC and was riveted! Suddenly I was taken back to my grade school years where I was forced to sing an ever so cheesy "The World is a Circle"! For the first time in years I'm seeing and hearing where these rediculous tunes from my youth have come from - and loved it. John Geilgud's perpetual grin and his pointy-head costumes had me in stitches. Not to mention some truly silly dance numbers AND a cast including actor extraordinaire George Kennedy! What's not to love? View it for what it is - guilty pleasured silliness.
