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.

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.

"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.

Well, I was really looking forward to buying this, but now I'll skip it. Here's proof that Fox doesn't care about the true movie fans who begged for the uncut version (previously released in the US on laserdisc). This version is missing NINE minutes. The British DVD is UNCUT so there's no excuse. What a disappoinment.
My review is not for the movie, which I love, but for this DVD.

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.

This is undoubtedly the greatest movie ever made by humans. Or by apes. Or by insects. No matter who made it. Anyway, it's about Raquel Welch. In a fur bikini. Oh, and there are some dinosaurs, and they fight, and then they go back to Raquel Welch. Did I mention she was wearing a fur bikini? Anyway, there are more dinosaurs, and then some ugly hairy guys fight, and then a volcano blows up. And then they go back to Raquel Welch, who is wearing, can you believe it? A fur bikini! Who knew! No stupid dialogue, no overly complex plot. Dinosaurs, yes; but the dinosaurs do not wear fur bikinis, which is a good thing. The hairy ugly guys wear furry loincloths. However, Raquel Welch does wear a fur bikini, did I say that already? No matter. I'll say it again. Fur Bikini. Fur Bikini. FUR BIKINI. RAQUEL WELCH IN A FUR BIKINI. And she has eyeshadow too, amazing what those cave people had. And there are some dinosaurs. Fighting. Sometimes. But mostly it's, well, Raquel Welch, who is apparelled in fuzzy undies and not much else. HA! There, you thought I was going to say "wearing a fur bikini" again, but I didn't! HA! See! This is why this is the greatest movie ever made.

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.
