Journey to the Lost City is an adventure film directed by Fritz Lang and released in 1960. It stars Debra Paget, Paul Hubschmid, and Walther Reyer in lead roles. The movie follows the story of a group of adventurers who embark on a journey to find the Lost City of the Incas deep in the Amazon jungle. The film opens with a scene of a group of explorers being attacked by a group of Indians in the Amazon jungle. Only one of them, a young man named Luis (Reyer), manages to escape and make his way to Europe, where he teams up with the beautiful Lisa (Paget). Together they decide to lead a group of adventurers to the lost city in search of treasure.

The group includes a doctor, a geologist, a pilot, and a newspaper reporter, all of whom are excited about the prospect of discovering the lost city and the treasures it contains. However, as they venture deeper into the jungle, they begin to encounter various obstacles and dangers.

The group is first attacked by a group of Indians, but they manage to fend them off with the help of Luis, who is familiar with their ways. Then they face challenges from the treacherous terrain, wild animals, and dense vegetation. But the biggest challenge comes when they reach the lost city itself, which is protected by booby traps and other dangers.

In the city, the group comes face to face with the descendants of the Incas, who still live there and who are fiercely protective of their territory. The adventurers must prove their worth and gain the trust of the Incas if they are to have any chance of discovering the treasures they seek.

Throughout the film, there are several subplots and romances that develop, adding depth and complexity to the story. For example, there is a romance between Luis and Lisa, who are drawn to each other despite their different backgrounds and cultures. There is also a love triangle between the geologist, the doctor, and Lisa.

The performances in the film are strong, with particular praise going to Paget, who manages to convey both the vulnerability and the strength of her character. Reyer is also impressive as the heroic and resourceful Luis.

The film's strongest point, however, is its stunning visuals. The lush and exotic jungle setting is beautifully shot and provides a vivid backdrop for the action. The lost city itself is also a visual feast, with intricate and detailed sets that bring the ancient civilization of the Incas to life.

Overall, Journey to the Lost City is a classic adventure film that delivers on both action and drama. Despite being over sixty years old, it still holds up today and is a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Journey to the Lost City is a 1958 adventure movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5.
