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

Cowboys lasso carnivorous creatures from the past.
Special effects master Ray Harryhausen is at the top of his game. What sounds corny turns out to be a very interesting cult classic. Jim O'Connolly directs this western meets science fiction thriller about cowboys discovering a lost valley of prehistoric monsters/creatures. These historical finds are then suppose to be the show saving performers in a traveling circus.
This turns out to be one the best dino movies you will ever see. The stop-motion animation is blended so well, it should take top billing. So many other movies are so fake in appearance...this project sticks out like a masterpiece.
The cast includes James Franciscus, Richard Carlson, Laurence Naismith and the alluring Miss Gila Golan.
