O'Brien (King Kong, Mighty Joe Young) and a cast of actors under the direction of Harry O. Hoyt. Professor Challenger (Wallace Beery), mocked for his insistence that a lost world of living prehistoric creatures exists on a remote Brazilian plateau, organizes an expedition with Summerlee (Arthur Hoyt), eminent scientist; Edward E. Malone (Lloyd Hughes), journalist; Sir John Roxton (Lewis Stone), hunter and explorer; and Paula White (Bessie Love), daughter of an explorer who earlier disappeared on the plateau. In the jungle, the adventurers are attacked by the missing link, an ape-man, and suddenly spy a pterodactyl flying through the air. This primitive, bird-like creature is thought to have been extinct for sixty-five million years. Prehistoric monsters exist after all
