In the opening scene with the U-boat, Captain Von Schoenvorts uses the designation SS in describing the ship he sees through the periscope. If it is a British passenger liner, the designation should be RMS; if it's supposed to be a British military ship, the designation should be HMS. See more »

I saw this movie as a kid in the late 70s at the cinema and loved those dinosaurs. I have now watched the restored version (91 min. instead of 78 min.) on DVD and still love those dinosaurs. There are few movies that I still enjoy as much as I did a quarter of a century ago, so this obviously must have something `classic' about it, though it's hard to put the finger on it. Maybe it's just the naïve charm that was lost when computer FX spoiled fun to a certain degree in Jurassic Park and later on. No actor is a candidate for the Academy Award here, the monsters look about as deadly as your daughter's puppets, but nonetheless more sense of wonder in the forgotten land of Caprona than anywhere else.
