Screenplay by Robert Riskin

Based on a novel by James Hilton, this fantastical drama follows a group of plane-crash survivors who have landed in the mythical Shangri-La, a valley hidden deep within the mountains of the Himalayas. Rescued by followers of the High Llama (Sam Jaffe), the outsiders grow to love the remote paradise, but British writer and diplomat Robert Conway (Ronald Colman), suspecting that the crash was no accident, begins to investigate, leading to a surprising revelation.

Special introduction by Victoria Riskin, daughter of its screenwriter Robert Riskin and her mom was Actress Fay Wray.

Ms. Riskin will be signing copies of her new book: Fay Wray and Robert Riskin: A Hollywood Memoir
