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

Special effects master Ray Harryhausen has said that sequence of the elephant performing its act and its subsequent fight with Gwangi were done with no shots of a real elephant because no such animal was available. However, there is an elephant in the very early scene of the Wild West show's parade through the town, and Ray's animation puppet is a perfect double for it. See more »
When the spectators flee from the arena, one ticket booth is knocked over, leaving the open side facing up. In later shots a closed side faces up, and still later this same booth disappears completely. See more »
If you are a fan of dinosaur movie,this one won't upset you.I do like a way the screenplay told the story to us.Good for all ages.Wonderfully initiative mixture of cowboy and dinosaur and love story!! ..Good acting and grand western music scores help support the pics very much.Its theme song is as good as a theme for "The Big Country"...I dare say.Also,as for special effects,I can't say anything more to Ray's attempts.
Certainly,this movie isn't the best.But it can entertain you much more than you expect.
