Synopsis: Audiences who enjoyed the latest in dinosaur technology in such films as Jurassic Park can thank two men for creating a genre that has become a literary and big-screen bonanza. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle started it all in 1912 with his novella The Lost World in which the blustery Professor Challenger, a character he modeled on himself, leads an expedition to a lost mesa in South America where dinosaurs still rule at least a part of the Earth. But his story might never have made it to the screen had it not been for the special effects wizardry of Willis O'Brien. O'Brien created the 49 model dinosaurs of The Lost World live and breathe so convincingly that many audience members were convinced the filmmakers had discovered the real thing!
