This chapter focuses on how the film Lost Horizon caused lasting damage to Capra’s career. The film went over its budget and took more than five years to recover its cost. It caused a grave financial crisis for Columbia, and the tensions it engendered broke the partnership not only between Capra and Cohn but between Capra and Riskin as well.
