Storyline

Plot Summary

Professor Challenger reveals the existence of a remote plateau in the Amazon jungle where dinosaurs have survived. He returns there leading an expedition. Not only are dinosaurs found and confronted, but also highly evolved apes, Amazonian Indians who think Challenger a god, and, on the way, the attractive orphaned niece of a lonely missionary. Theology intervenes in this exercise in vindicating Darwin and the missionary twice attempts to sabotage the mission. After much excitement, love is found in unexpected places, and, confronted by civilization, as represented by the Royal Society in London, Challenger changes his story. Written by Stewart Naunton

Trivia The Dinosaur effects were created by the same team that had just completed the now-legendary Walking with Dinosaurs (1999) TV series. In addition, the Entelodont from Walking with Prehistoric Beasts (2001) makes an appearance. See more »
Goofs Near the beginning of the film, in the lobby of the Natural History Museum, the tail of the Diplodocus skeleton is raised up off the ground. The film is set in 1911, but that skeleton had a dragging tail until it was remounted in 1993. See more »

Quotes Prof. George Challenger: [Professor Summerlee has just had a bitter argument with Reverend Kerr over evolution: Professor Challanger has kept silent and divulged that his parents were deeply religous] Professor Challenger: One day I went to my father and asked him for a microscope. I can still remember the sadness in his eyes; he knew he had lost me then. But without even knowing it he had given me an even greater gift. He taught me humility in the face of nature. I don't know if there is a god; but I know man is no substitute if there isn't.
