- ONE MILLION YEARS B.C.
- Film (1966). Hammer/20th Century-Fox. Dir Don Chaffey, starring Raquel Welch, John Richardson, Robert Brown, Martine Beswick. Screenplay Michael Carreras, based on the screenplay of ONE MILLION B.C. (1940). 100 mins. Colour.The first of Hammer's several stone-age movies (see also WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH), this is a remake of One Million B.C. Prehistoric lovers from different scantily clad tribes, the rock people and the shell people - some loony ANTHROPOLOGY here - survive warfare, anachronistic monsters, unconvincing fur brassieres and volcanic upheavals. Ray HARRYHAUSEN - this time not working with his usual colleague Charles Schneer - was in charge of the monsters which are, indeed, animated.PN/JB
