Trivia

The original script by Arthur C. Pierce was called simply "The Prehistoric Planet", but producer Jack Broder later added "Women of..." to the title for marketing purposes. To justify this title change, brief scenes were filmed of three actresses in native garb, prancing and swimming semi-nude in the pond and waterfall on the planet. These scenes were only used in foreign release prints, but are visible briefly in the US trailer for the film. See more »

The title and tag line are a bit full of it.
8 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Yes, there are really no prehistoric women to speak of, a few prehistoric guys that don't really figure into the plot much at all, and to top it off the opening scenes are very confusing as it took me a bit to figure out there were two ships. This movie was also very boring and even mst3000 couldn't help it as it made for one of the more boring episodes of that show I had ever seen. The only reason I gave it a two is that there was at least a very attractive female character to look at among the dismal sets and stupid prehistoric monsters. Which consisted of a lizard and a normal sized snake...oh the horrors. But I should at least give a bit of the plot of this dull film. Space cruiser one has this crew on it and then it shifts to ship two which was the confusing point to me. However, I soon figure out one of the ships is being taken over by these people and they cause it to crash on a the prehistoric planet that does not contain all that many women and the second ship comes to the rescue. That is about all there is to it, granted there is a revelation at the end which is moronic at best, however I won't ruin it for anyone who may be brave enough to sit through this mess...even the beautiful Linda character is not enough reason to watch it for most people.
