Happy Tuesday, dear readers. In celebration of the passing of Monday, LAist offers you a spectacular box-office flop, some film noir, plus a little rock 'n' roll and a little bit of country.

Part of the ongoing series of musicals showing at the Egyptian Theater, tonight is the ill-fated 1973 musical Lost Horizon, a film which cannot be found on video. Directed by Charles Jarrott, the film bombed at the box office despite the power of its stars: Peter Finch, Liv Ullmann, Michael York, Olivia Hussey, Charles Boyer and John Gielgud; music by Burt Bacharach and lyrics by Hal David; script by Larry Kramer; choreography by the legendary Hermes Pan; and costumes by Jean Louis (who dressed Rita Hayworth in Gilda). The film starts at 7:30 PM and (schedule permitting) will be followed by a discussion with actor Michael York.
