YMMV: The Lost World

The novel

  • Ho Yay: A bit of this between Malone and Roxton.
  • Values Dissonance:
    • A lot is made of the fact that Edward Malone is Irish, and he takes a very lax attitude to racism being directed his way (Doyle himself was of Irish descent).
    • There are also "treacherous half-castes" and a "loyal Negro" in the expedition party.
    • The term "half-breeds" for people of mixed descent can grate on modern ears.

The 1925 film

  • Strangled by the Red String: Ed and Paula exchange one or two sentences in one scene and fall in love with each other in a next scene, as they have nothing better to do, apparently.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: For their time, at least. Truth be told, they haven't aged well.
