Lost Horizon is considered one of the last of several box-office musical failures of Journey From The Mariabronn - Kansas - Miracles Out Of Nowhere (DVD) late s and early s, and also the last musical film to be given the roadshow release, which came in the wake of the success of The Sound of Music.
She noted that Shangri-La was depicted as:. There's probably no way to rethink this material without throwing it all away. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film one star out of four and wrote that "it sinks altogether during a series of the most incompetent and clumsy dance numbers I've ever seen. Not the lyrics, not the sets, not the dancing, not the script, and—with all that going against them—not the actors. With the exception of Bobby Van, a kind of poor man's Donald O'Connorthe cast has no aptitude for singing and dancing.
After derided preview screenings  Columbia Pictures attempted to re-cut the film, but to no avail. Critic John Simon remarked that it "must have arrived in garbage rather than in film cans.
In his autobiography, Burt Bacharach cites Lost Horizon as very nearly ending his musical career. The Bacharach- David partnership, which had been long and both critically and financially successful, was effectively terminated by their experiences working on the score. Bacharach felt that the producers were sanctioning weakened versions of his music, and he attempted to exert greater influence over what was being developed. However, this led to him being banned from the editing suite at Todd-AO.
This led to an exchange of lawsuits, destroying their professional relationship. George Kennedy was coached by Bacharach but was not used as a vocalist in the finished film. The soundtrack was moderately more successful than the film, peaking at 56 on the Billboard Commercially successful singles were issued of both the title song, performed by Shawn Phillipsand " Living Together, Growing Together " by The 5th Dimensionthe latter being the band's last top 40 hit on the Billboard pop charts.
Bacharach later reworked "Living Together, Growing Together" for his album of the same name, rewriting the rather ponderous opening verse as a bridge within the song. Large parts of the score were deleted after the film's roadshow release. All of the songs appear on the soundtrack LP and CD. According to the notes on the laserdisc release, Kellerman and Kennedy had a reprise of "Living Together, Growing Together" that was also lost. Hunter wanted to follow up the movie with another musical Hollywood Hollywood set in Hollywood in the s.
