When the rocket is reported to be flying over water, a picture of a naval vessel is shown. The vessel is the battleship USS Maryland, in a picture taken before Pearl Harbour configuration. She was refitted after Pearl Harbour, and decommissioned in 1947, four years before the movie was made. See more »

A riveting adventure filled with joy, Lost Continent is probably best remembered for one thing: rock climbing.
In one of the most amazing shows of padding out a film, this 83 minute feature contains about 20 minutes of pure mountaineering. Doesn't sound too bad until you realize that almost nothing happens during those 20 minutes than a bunch of guys walking from rock to rock.
So what is this film? It starts as a political-military flick filled with disjointed semi-back-stories and speeches, runs right into the boring uncut mountaineering and finally ends up as it was advertised, as a fantasy-adventure.
A good fantasy-adventure? Nope, not really, but it's not bad either. It contains all the flat one-dimensional characters and bad effects and filming of the 50's, but it's no worse than any of those. If you're really into these classic adventure flicks, the movie is worth watching once they're done rock climbing.
