The Lost World was filmed as a silent motion picture for First National productions and released in 1925. It was directed by Harry O. Hoyt and stars Wallace Beery as Challenger. Willis H. O'Brien was responsible for the special effects. The effects are good but the performances mediocre.

In 1960, a new version of The Lost World was released by Twentieth Century-Fox.
