Quest for the Lost City (1954)
Forget the "Indiana Jones" films - this is the real deal.
`Quest for the Lost City' (1954) is a follow up feature documentary of the book of the same title, and is a moving testament to the courage and adventurous spirit of the husband and wife writing/exploring/film-making team of Dana and Ginger Lamb. Throw away your `Indiana Jones' DVDs, these two are the real deal.
Traveling by foot, horseback, dugout canoe, Model-T Ford, jeep, and airplane the Lambs traveled down the western edge of Mexico, crossing the Sonora Desert into the jungles of Chiapas. Ten years after they began their quest, years beset with hardships, frustration, and danger, they finally found their lost city. Along the way, they met a band of friendly bandits, an army of ants, a hermit, and a lost tribe of the Mayans. The Lambs' claim of finding a lost Mayan city deep in the Mexican jungle was discounted by well-known Mayan experts in their time, but today evidence by less biased experts supports the claim that the lost city they found and named `Laxtunich' really exists and lies undiscovered deep in the jungle waiting to be found. `Quest for the Lost City' is nothing less than one of the greatest adventure stories ever captured on film.
