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

Trivia This movie was the first one Columbia Pictures filmed after it moved onto the Warner Brothers lot in 1972, creating The Burbank Studios, to facilitate both production companies. The castle set from Camelot (1967) was recycled as Shangri-La. The medieval turrets were removed and replaced with Tibetan gables to simulate Himalayan Buddhist monasteries. Most of the castle's lower levels remained intact, and the courtyard was replaced with layered steppes and fountains. The set remained on the studio's backlot for several years before it was torn down to make way for a new office building. See more »
Goofs The library at Shangri-La is supposed to be a repository for the world's great literature, yet a number of "Readers' Digest Condensed Books" are visible on its shelves. See more »
