The Lost World

The Lost World film poster (Michael Renne)

The Lost World, released in 1960 and starring Michael Renne. Carmen Carmela (listed on the soundtrack as simply Carmela) is heard briefly for the first time at about 18 minutes into the film, sung by Gomez, the helicopter pilot, who manages to sing whilst chewing on a large cigar and, in one shot, without moving his mouth… He repeats the song about five minutes later with rather more convincing miming, but with a guitar that seems to play itself!
