Sigh. . . .
28 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's my childhood formative movie memory.

It's the glorious Raquel running about in a fur bikini. Those legs, that face.

It's a ten. and so's the movie.

Watched it again, now some forty-odd years on and, sentimentality aside, it still remains curiously engrossing. Definitely a strange fish, this slice of dinosaur hokum endures in an intangible way and really, in all honesty, I hope never to put my finger on exactly why.

Just wallow in it's matinée-marvel and it's appeal on many levels, from youthful monster-glee to, ahem, mature appreciation of the 'cast'.
