Williams is a bootlegger who takes in the down-and-out Nora. Nora eventually finds herself in the middle of a gang war between Williams and his chief rival, Tiger Louie. British diplomat Robert Conway and a small group of civilians crash land in the Himalayas, and are rescued by the people of the mysterious, Eden-like valley of Shangri-la.
Protected by the mountains from the world outside, where the clouds of World War II are gathering, Shangri-la provides a seductive escape for the world-weary Conway.
This one line speaks volumes about what the movie and the original novel was trying to say. The concept of Shangri-La, a place where people work and live in peaceful harmony, is as relevant today as it was in the post-World War I era that James Hilton wrote ‘Lost Horizon’, where the world was still in turmoil following a devastating war and another was on its way. In these days of war, humanitarian devastation and disease, how many people are there who dream of getting away from it all and living out their lives in a remote paradise just like Shangri-La?
The High Lama’s words to Conway resonate strongly even today. Is there anything more pitiful? What madness there is! A scurrying mass of bewildered humanity, crashing headlong against each other, propelled by an orgy of greed and brutality.
The beauty of Shangri-La, the stunning mountain landscapes and the overall settings of the movie make us believe that such a wonderful place can exist. All the actors are commendable in their portrayals though some characters are different to those in the original novel and their interaction with each other add a real sparkle to the movie.
