Directed by: Don Chaffey
Starring: Raquel Welch, John Richardson, Percy Herbert, Martine Beswick
Richardson is a caveman banished from his tribe who is taken in by a more civilised band of coastal dwellers. This leads to a confrontation between the two tribes.
Those Harryhausen creatures are fantastic however. After the groundbreaking "Jason & the Argonauts", also helmed by Chaffey, this is probably his most impressive work. The foot tall models blend almost seamlessly with the live action with caveman spears bouncing realistically off dinosaur hides. For some reason the producers decided to implement footage of live lizards and turtles alongside the stop-motion beasts. Those scenes look ridiculous in comparison to the ones Harryhausen worked on. Obviously the movie is historically ridiculous but giant turtles living alongside T-Rexes?
If you enjoy cleavage and stop-motion dinosaurs (and what man doesn't love at least one of the two?) then this is definitely worth a look but unfortunately all the meat is on Welch and not the story.
