Lost Horizon, the James Hilton classic, begins in 1932 when Conway disappears along with three other passengers in an airplane that was evacuating them from the war in Baskul to Peshawar. The airplane mysteriously vanished, never to be found. Conway, a British consul; his young deputy Mallinson; Miss Stone, a traveler; Lovett, a paleontologist; and an American financier calling himself Barnard are kidnapped in a small plane and marooned in the uncharted mountain heights of Tibet. In what seems an amazing stroke of good fortune, a passing procession finds them and brings them to the mysterious lamasery of Shangri-La.
