Ken_Begg Or it’s just a primitive matte shot, which would make sense. sandra Is that Gertie the Dinosaur ? bgbear_rnh It looks like it is singing so, it reminded me of Dinah Saur from “Beany and Cecil” zombiewhacker And so what begins? zombiewhacker Double post: the first stop motion dinosaur, maybe? Flangepart Hummm…why am I thinking Prof. Challenger? Cullen Waters My Mom loves this movie. I prefer Kong myself, but it’s still good fun. Rock Baker Oooh! Now you’re talking! Rock Baker Actually O’Brien had been perfecting his technique for years with one-reelers. THE LOST WORLD does mark the first time a dinosaur/prehistoric monster was brought back to civilization to run amok in a modern city, however. Although the giant monster attacking a city ploy may have been seen earlier in a cartoon called Dreams of a Rare Bit Fiend. Rock Baker Well, Kong takes all the good stuff from this movie and then ramps it up several notches! bgbear_rnh Hey, professor. Is this a walnut tree? Everyone says I have the brain the size of a walnut. How big is a walnut? I need to know if I should stomp them or not. Cullen Waters True, true. The Rev. I have seen about three versions of this movie. Somehow, none of them have been the original. I am full of shame. The Rev. Gertie was an animated drawing, so this isn’t her. This is from The Lost World, the (as far as I know) original film version. Cullen Waters It’s worth hunting down. The Rev. The worst part is I’m pretty sure I have this on VHS somewhere, which means I bought it and never watched it.
