Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Raquel Welch in a two-piece fur bikini. That and the title is pretty much all anyone needs to know. If that indeed isn't enough, there are the dinosaurs of technician-artist Ray Harryhausen (along with some superimposed iguanas), and a prologue that tells you all you want to know about this "brutal world." Want more? There are volcanoes, barehanded wrestling with warthogs, and rival, subhuman, cannibalistic tribes--Lord, the list goes on and on! The portrait of humankind isn't the most flattering: we're petty, greedy, we grunt a lot, and we don't play well with others. Welch portrays a cavewoman from the tribe of the Blondes trying to make a life for herself with an outcast from the tribe of the Brunettes, which doesn't sit well with anybody. --Keith Simanton

Product Description

In this vivid view of prehistoric life, a man from the mean-spirited Rock People (John Richardson) is banished from his home. He soon finds himself among the kind, gentle Shell People and falls in love with one of their loving tribeswomen (Raquel Welch). The twosome decide to face the world together, cut off from all tribal support, alone in a deadly world of hideous beast and earthshattering volcanic eruptions. The film's pioneering special effects have made it a true science-fiction classic.

1.0 out of 5 stars ZERO stars. PLEASE don't buy this DVD. March 9 2004
Format:DVD
Once again we experience blatant, greedy corporate stupidity. This DVD version is the television version of the movie -- not the complete theatrical release. Fox cut out about 9 minutes from the complete movie resulting in this disappointing garbage apparently thinking we consumers are total morons. (The complete theatrical release on DVD can be purchased at amazon.co.uk.)
Some of us have been impatiently waiting years for this movie to be released on DVD only to be utterly and profoundly disappointed. We were hoping the DVD version would be as complete as the terrific Laser Disc version that was released several years ago.
Fox should pull this DVD from distribution, apologize to the buying public and re-release the actual theatrical version of this movie. That's not all. Heads should roll at Fox. This was no accident. Some starched-shirted MBA slacker jerk at Fox made the decision to release this tripe. What would Fox have lost by releasing the complete movie? They wanted to release some crud just to make a few lousy bucks. Fox felt the lowest common demoninator consumer wouldn't notice or care. Shame on them.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very dated film June 2 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The only reason I purchased this DVD was to look at a young Rachel Welch. That objective was accomplished, except the video quality of the disc is not good. Apart from this, the film is pretty well a dud. Special effect, probably reasonably good at that time, is totally unconvincing by today's standard. And you have to accept both humans and dinosaurs co-existed at that time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fur Bikini Sept. 15 2013

Raquel Welch wearing very little and being a cave woman. The early special effects were outstanding for their time and fun to watch.

REGION FREE. The version on this DVD has been UNrestored back to the American release print. If you don't have a way to play the Region 2 Warner's release (Available from Amazon U.K) be on the look out for the CryptFlicks bootleg. The picture quality may not be as good but at least it's the uncut version.
Not suprisingly the "restoration featurette" doesn't include them cutting out the restored footage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Raquell Welch July 31 2009
Format:DVD
I remember having a life size poster of this movie 43 years ago on my bedroom wall. You gotta love Raquel to enjoy this movie because she is the only thing of interest in it. I think it was her first semi hit. The movie is a anthropoligists dream, personaly I think man has decended not assended as the picture would have you believe.

3.0 out of 5 stars So funny! Jan. 14 2011
By Cyclist
Format:DVD
I can't help laughing when I see a group of prehistoric women wearing rags and looking like they just came out of the beauty salon and had their nails and hair done... Typical plot: after a fight about authority a guy is expelled from his tribe and ends up wandering until he meets a bunch of Amazons... with Raquel Welch as the main character. A fun movie to watch when you want to remember the Saturday morning flicks at the local theater, and how special-effects looked like before the advent of computer animation!

Although Fox uses the famous picture of Raquel Welch in her fur bikini on the cover of this DVD, the reason most people will want to watch and this 1966 movie today is because of the dinosaur stop-motion effects by Ray Harryhausen. The film, a remake of a very clunky 1940 movie, "One Million B.C.," starring Victor Mature and Carol Landis, combined Harryhausen's terrific dinosaur effects with a caveman plot heavy with sexual titillation. The combination made the film a big worldwide hit (and without any dialogue in any intelligible language, it translated easily to other countries), but today the sex elements seem tame and often a bit silly. The dinosaurs still amaze; Harryhausen's effects have a sense of wonder to them that never ages. Even away from the animated effects sequences, the film still works remarkably well due to effective performances from the cast and the filmmakers' attempts to keep the story simple but serious (when possible).
"One Million Years B.C." was the brainchild of Michael Carreras, son of James Carreras, the head of Hammer Film Productions in England. Hammer had made its name with its Technicolor gothic horror films, but Michael Carreras wanted the studio to stretch in different directions, and "One Million Years B.C." was one of his most successful experiments. He asked Harryhausen to provide the effects, and the effects man was loaned from his own production company, Morningside, to do the movie. This makes it one of the few films from the period that Harryhausen worked on where he was not one of the producers or involved in developing the project.
The movie was shot on the Canary Islands, a perfect setting for a prehistoric wilderness.

1.0 out of 5 stars These lazy DVDs of grand classics need to end! May 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I vote everyone who is a big fan of this movie give it the lowest rating imaginable. Hopefully Fox will get the message, take it off the market, and give us the edition it truly deserves. If we all voice together, we can SURELY make a difference!!
