Product Description

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.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

Before you order this DVD, make sure you are aware that this is the shortened, U.S. release version! Fox issued the complete film several years ago on laserdisc in a gorgeous widescreen transfer, so naturally everyone expected that they would do the same for the DVD. No such luck -- Fox has decided this time out to go with the notorious truncated version, which runs a full nine minutes shorter than the original British release. Ray Harryhausen fans should be particularly outraged, as the edited film snips away some of his special effects footage. This has to rank as the first major DVD disappointment of 2004.
I love this movie, but I won't be purchasing the U.S. DVD. Immediately upon finding out the bad news, I placed an order through Amazon.co.uk for the complete film on R2 DVD, which, in addition to being uncensored, also features some extras (including reportedly lengthy interviews with Raquel Welch and Ray Harryhausen) that will not be included on the R1 disc. If you are a fan of this richly atmospheric, goofily entertaining dinosaur epic, I recommend you do the same.

The 100 minute version previously released by Fox on video and laser disc is nowhere to be found. Instead, this version is the inferior 91 minute cut. Harryhausen, Welch and Hammer fans should avoid this DVD at all costs!

Format: VHS Tape
"One Million Years B.C" is actually a serious attempt to depict life in prehistory for cavemen and women. Many reviewers complain that human beings and dinosaurs NEVER occupied the same period in prehistory, but this is merely our best present-day educated guess. Who knows? Twenty years from now we may discover evidence that people existed at the same time as dinosaurs. The fact is that we DON'T KNOW precisely what it was like for people in prehistory and never truly will; all we can do is guess. This movie is simply a serious attempt to show what it may have been like for people IF they lived at the same time as dinosaurs. Capeesh?
I said this was a serious depiction, but there are admittedly some humerous aspects. For instance, the mullet-headed blonde men of the shell tribe and the indoor cave sets straight out of the original "Star Trek."
Other than that I can't think of anything bad to say. The location photography from the Canary Islands is awesome and Ray Harryhausen's dinosaur animation is excellent, holding up very well even to this day (he even throws in a couple of superimposed iguanas and a tarantula).
Oh yeah, most guys understandably rave about Raquel Welch and her infamous cavegirl bikini, and she is indeed stunningly ravishing, but -- believe it or not -- there are a few other female castmembers that are possibly even more beautiful(!). No kidding.
I must not forget to mention the outstanding musical score -- it's very fitting, very primal.
Lastly, there's no talking as we understand it; only grunting and primitive lingo. Highly enjoyable and highly recommended unless, of course, you have pompous hangups about historical chronology.

Format: VHS Tape
Greatly maligned in the past (usually by Femi-Nazis jealous of Raquel's physique), this film is a true classic -- and a very well-made one at that.
It's not and never was about reality. It's about entertainment. And as a "fantasy" set in an imaginary past, it's "great" entertainment.
Don Chaffey's direction is a masterful display of Eisensteinian silent film technique. Wilkie Cooper's razor-sharp cinematography is rich & full of wide-angle depth. Mario Nascimbene's avant garde score evokes both mood and temperature. And Ray Harryhausen's visual effects were the state of the art in their day (sure, his stop-motion may strobe a bit, but that tiny allosuarus attacking the village has more "life" in it than any ILM CG dino I've ever seen).
But beware the Fox Home Video VHS version. It's the 91 minute US theatrical cut -- missing a full 9 minutes of essential plot info and about 25% of Harryhausen's animation. The Fox laser disc is the complete 100 minute version as are the PAL VHS editions issued in Europe. Come on Fox, let's issue a NTSC DVD of the COMPLETE film -- it's already available in Europe on a PAL DVD!
If your copy opens with "A Seven Arts/Hammer Production", it's the cut version. If your copy opens with "Associated British Pathe presents a Hammer Production", it's the complete version.
Finally, to those who of you who don't like this film, may you be doomed to an eternity of watching Fred Zinnemann's A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS over & over & over & over again. You'll be begging for OMYBC after just two screenings.
