The fight between two dinosaurs is the same sequence used for Journey to the Center of the Earth, which was released soon after Teenage Cavemen. A baby alligator was fitted with a fake sail-fin crest on its back and it actually was made to fight a small monitor lizard. They really were biting each other and rolling around. See more »

Poor production values hamper this 'camp' genre picture.
Made in the 50s to cash in on the unexpected success of the "I Was a Teenage.......", this entry at least dared to be different. Corman shows promise in this early directoral effort, and the story does have a neat twist at the end (if you make it that far), All that said, the slow, dragging plot and the non-existent production values make it a chore to watch. Notable also for an early screen appearance of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." Robert Vaughn.
