When Bowen Tyler (Doug McClure) was marooned on the Lost Island of Caprona in the year 1916 as seen in the first of this loose trilogy, The Land That Time Forgot, he hurled a cannister into the ocean hoping someone would find it and come to his rescue.
Three years later the cannister, containing Tyler’s information about the island and perhistoric botanical specimens, is discovered off the coast of Scotland. Tyler’s long time friend, Ben McBride (Patrick Wayne), convinces a London newspaper that Tyler’s strange claims could be true and that an expedition to rescue his friend on Caprona could result in the story of the century. And so the adventure begins in Kevin Connor’s thrill-packed adventure also starring the intriguing charms of singer Dana Gillespie.
