On a naval expedition to Antarctica, three men and reporter Maggie Hathaway crash-land in a crater 1000 m below sea level. There, they encounter steamy tropical forest, dinosaurs, carnivorous plants, and human footprints, as Maggie's clothes become more and more abbreviated. Written by

This was originally set to be an expensive sci-fi epic shot in color with a large cast and Jack Arnold directing. Arnold actually began pre-production work when Universal decided to slash the budget, shoot it in black-and-white instead of color and changed (and reduced) the cast, turning it from a big-budget "A" picture to a low-budget "B" picture. Arnold withdrew from the project and Universal assigned it to one of its contract directors, Virgil W. Vogel. See more »
Despite spending 25 days in the jungle without any toiletries or shaving equipment, the three male leads never grow beards. In fact, they remain perfectly clean-shaven the entire time. See more »
Your goal, gentlemen: Antarctica. Five million square miles of terra incognate, but your job to make it just a little less incognate.

This is very fun to watch. It has cheesy 50's clothing and hairstyles, poor effects to make you snicker, and lots of fun elements and charm that can only be found in a dino film. A good way to spend some time with a friend on a friday night. Worth seeing if you like cheesy movies. A note:The sound effects for when the Tyranoaurus Rex is roaring was used in many other films, including a James Bond film and in spielberg's film "DUEL".
