The old British musical-hall ditty "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo" provides the title for this lightweight Ronald Colman vehicle. Colman, playing a refugee Russian prince, is the "man" in question, and the owners of the "broken bank"–that is, the proprietors of the Monte Carlo casino where Colman scored the big win–are anxious to get their money back. They dispatch the beautiful Joan Bennett to lure Colman back into the casino. He falls for her and loses his winnings in the process, but she has pangs of remorse when she learns that Colman had been gambling on behalf of his impoverished countrymen. Bennett joins Colman as he merrily heads off to chase another rainbow.

Lost Horizon, made at enormous expense by the famous Frank Capra in 1936, was based on a popular novel by James Hilton. It tells the story of a group of plane crash survivors in the Himalaya, who discover heaven on earth in Shangri-La, a word which entered the English language to mean a place of eternal happiness. The film was a controversial production. It ran way over budget, costing Columbia Studios an enormous proportion of their annual budget. The film was subsequently cut in 1937 from 132 to 116 minutes for rural distribution and then cut further to 108 minutes for re-release during the war to eliminate the pacifist message from the storyline. Due to the committed efforts of the American Film Institute and a world wide search for prints, this DVD contains a nearly complete reconstruction of the original movie (complete soundtrack of the original 132 minute version wherein 7 minutes of missing screen time are reconstructed from stills.)
