Filmed in the most dangerous wastelands, the Kalahari Desert, "Lost in the Desert" is a story of suspense, conflict and incredible human courage as an 8-year-old boy and his dog are left to face this vast wasteland alone after an airplane crash, while an army of men and machines penetrate the desert searching for them. The film is based on true events and is sure to hold you spellbound! Written by
I saw this movie as a double feature with Oliver Twist (the one with Mark Lester as Oliver) and both movies have lived in my heart ever since. Lost In The Desert provided a different type of adventure than Oliver, being outdoors and with a great cast of exotic animals. Back then I was at the same age as the boy featured in the movie, I identified with him and wanted to travel far away and encounter all the perils and adventures that he did with his little dog. This is one of those great family movies almost in the tradition of the Walt Disney movies made in the 60's. A great movie overall.
