Cowboy James Franciscus seeks fame and fortune by capturing a Tyrannosaurus Rex living in the Forbidden Valley and putting it in a Mexican circus. His victim, called the Gwangi, turns out to have an aversion to being shown in public. Another film featuring the stop-action special effects talents of Ray Harryhausen. Written by

The pterodactyl picks Lope up by his shoulders but when T.J. is cleaning his wounds there are several claw marks down his right side and none on his shoulders. See more »
Don't you see...we must follow the gypsy trail to the forbidden valley because where there is one Eohippus there must be others. At least two, the sire and the mare, possibly more. Just think what you and Miss Breckenridge could do with a dozen Eohippi?

This is a damn good movie for a 1969 release! Of course the special effects are what makes it so good. Once again, I represent the one percent of the critics who liked it. I also have an artistic eye though. I see Harryhausen's Allosaurus(not Tyrannosaurus) as a living breathing beast. The only other movies that this happens is, One Million YeARS b.c. and Jurassic Park who's computer animation stands alone compared to the hundreds of other horrible excuses for c.g.i. that exist. With Harryhausen's effects we are talking about one artist who creates all the monsters and scenes, not about a team of people with different ideas who work on computers to make a flat representation of life. If you like movies like Anaconda and Tristar's Godzilla, then this movie is definitely not for you.
