caveman from u.n.c.l.e.
1 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a Roger Corman fan this one was a must see.Robert Vaughn who was later to star on TVs man from u.n.c.l.e.plays the title role of a rebellious youth who dares questions the laws of the tribe.there's plenty of stock footage from; one million bc(1940)with the big lizards with fins glued on their backs.but there's a surprise ending.the more recent movie; the village(2004)seems to borrow from this.teenage caveman was originally titled;prehistoric world,but American international wanted to cash in on their other 2 movies teenage werewolf and teenage franken- stein which were both hits.f-troop star frank DeKova also stars.this is on a double feature DVD with viking women and the sea serpent,another corman flick.Roger Corman had a way of making entertaining movies on low budgets.I'm giving it 6 out of 10.
