YMMV: Lost Horizon
  • Non-Singing Voice: The 1974 remake had everyone dubbed, except Sally Kellerman and Bobby Van.
  • Values Dissonance: In the film, the Wise Man describes the civility of their society, and how terribly rude it would be to express interest in a woman that another man wanted... unless you wanted her desperately, in which case he would of course yield her to you. The woman's opinion is apparently irrelevant.
    • No, to be fair, the wise man states that the woman like any other interested men should yield to the obsessive lover.
  • Vindicated by History: Frank Capra's film was a critical and box-office dud in 1937, but its reputation has grown immensely over time.
