Re: Conan Doyle's "The Lost World": still lacking a faithful adaptatio

I don't think including a female lead has anything to do with "PC sensibilities" (which has become a meaningless shibboleth anyway). It's more to do with audience appeal and filmmaking formula. Show most any movie executive a script with no female characters in it and they'll insist on adding a sexy babe to make the film more marketable. That's about as far from "PC" as you can get.
