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 have searched for years for a reference to this film. I saw it when I was a very small girl and I have ALWAYS remembered it! I too remember the bushmen eating (or so we thought) the little boy's dog. The dog was a female and she had puppies which all died - I remember the boy putting them in his pocket - the dog's name was 'Lolly'. I also remember the boy finding the pilot's body and his father dropping leaflets all over the desert telling him that he was looking for him.
I literally sobbed and sobbed! No other film in my whole lifetime has stayed with me like this one. I can't remember the the movie - which was the main feature - that my parents had originally taken me to see, but this movie, which was on before the main feature has stayed with me and I have never forgotten it. I am 39 years old and my parents STILL laugh about how they had to tell me to stop shouting out and crying in the movie theater! The boy was eventually rescued by his Dad. Not a dry eye in the house! I am so happy to have found a reference to it, and that others remember it as I do! I would dearly love to see it again.
