In 1991, Lumivision Corporation and International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House copyrighted a version distributed on video Milestone Film & Video. It was produced by Scott MacQueen and had an original music score by R.J. Miller. Although the movie ran 64 minutes, stills were used for missing footage and additional material involving portions of early films about dinosaurs were included, so that the total time of the video was 100 minutes.

Modern audience members won't exactly be scared or thrilled by the living, breathing dinosaurs in this 75 plus year old classic. They will see a visually amazing silent classic. THE LOST WORLD tells of an exhibition that finds mammoth dinosaurs on a plateau in the Amazon. A brontosaurus is brought back to London. Willis O'Brien's stop-motion animation is rather fluid, (as compared to the short animated comedies he made around 1918) There are also neat uses of matte work, rear screen and double exposures.
The recent DVD re-issue of LOST WORLD is a keeper. It even has LOST WORLD animation out-takes with single frames of O'Brien and his assistant accidently caught on film. Requied viewing for the student of cinematic special effects.
