ONE MILLION B.C.
   Film (1940). Hal Roach/United Artists. Dir Hal Roach and Hal Roach Jr, starring Victor Mature, Carole Landis, Lon Chaney Jr. Screenplay Mickell Novak, George Baker, Joseph Frickert, based on a story by Eugene Roche. 85 mins, cut to 80 mins. B/w.
   In this not very distinguished prehistoric Romeo-and-Juliet soap opera a young caveman is exiled from the family cave and meets a girl from a rival tribe; together they face various prehistoric hazards, including an earthquake and an erupting volcano. Photographically enlarged lizards wearing rubber disguises play the anachronistic dinosaurs, and an elephant wearing a woolly coat stands in for a mammoth. D.W. Griffith (1875-1948) worked on portions of the film, but resigned in anger at the decision not to have the cavepeople speak modern English. The UK remake was ONE MILLION YEARS BC (1966).
