LEGEND OF THE LOST (Theatrical release USA 1957)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Legend of the Lost
—an average adventure film—has lost itself in the year in was made: 1957. The movie serves as a good John Wayne study piece for an academic, but it only tracks the surface of a story that could have been quite exciting. It fails its drama potential.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. But one watch will shelve the film into history and sadly, will quickly become a discarded memory.
