Plot Summary

While escaping war-torn China, a group of Europeans crash in the Himalayas, where they are rescued and taken to the mysterious Valley of the Blue Moon, Shangri-La. Hidden from the rest of the world, Shangri-La is a haven of peace and tranquility for world-weary diplomat Richard Conway. His ambitious brother, George, sees it as a prison from which he must escape, even if it means risking his life and bringing destruction to the ancient culture of Shangri-La. Written by Marg Baskin

Did You Know?

Trivia In a 1975 magazine interview with Rona Barrett, Producer Ross Hunter acknowledged the failure of the soundtrack. "When we hired Bacharach and David to write the songs, we didn't know they were on the verge of dissolving their partnership. When they finally delivered the music, we were already deep into pre-production. We knew it was a bum score, but we couldn't do anything about it." See more »

Quotes [considering possible reasons why their plane has been hijacked]
Sam Cornelius: For good measure, they've got two journalists and - by his own account - a famous comedian.
Harry Lovett: Very funny. But what about you, Cornelius? Maybe they want you? Who are you?
Sam Cornelius: I'm somebody flying in a strange plane with a lunatic pilot and I'm trying to find out why - that's who I am!
