Storyline

Tigri (Laurette Luez, working her way up to Bomba and Bowery Boys films) and her stone-age girl friends hate all men, but realizing they are a necessary evil, capture some for potential (strictly business, no recreation allowed) husbands. Engor (Allan Nixon, working his way down to the Mesa of Lost Women) escapes and, in his travels, discovers fire. This comes in handy later, after he has been recaptured by the women, when he drives off a dragon, or something, with his new discovery. This little feat has the effect of making the women realize their rightful subservient position, and he and Tigri have a primitive (non-catered) wedding, and go off to start a new tribe of fur-wearers.

A fantastic special effects movie made in 1949 (1950 release)
23 January 2002 | by (Williamsburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I was 10 when I watched most of this movie being made in El Monte California. The "jungle" this was filmed in was where we played, and was also the wintering headquarters of the Clyde Beatty Circus. The special effects were nothing compared to the computer generated effects of today, but in 1949 they were spectacular. From the Giant, the Lion Pit, the Cave, fighting the Pterodactyl, to the slingshot fight across the "river" took imagination and talent to create. The night scenes were done in broad daylight with smoke lenses so we could watch everything that summer. If you watch this with a child's eye, it is a fantastic movie. If you watch it with an old fogey attitude, it will be a waste of time.
