Michael Moorcock has said his original script was faithful to the book. But the last 20 minutes were changed by the producers to include the volcano and caveman attacks on the Tyler's men and destruction of the submarine. See more »
When Olson and Bowen fight off the water dinosaur, Olson is firing an MP-18 submachine gun. As its name implies, it was not in service until 1918, two years after the film is set. Although technically incorrect, it's still a plausible weapon to use. See more »
You know it could be more difficult to leave Caprona than it was to land. We'll have that current with us going out through the tunnel. Be very difficult to navigate.
Captain Von Schoenvorts will take us through. I was with him when he took our U-33 down the Norwegian coast in winter, to sink a British cruiser. Storms and ice floes did not stop him.
He's not very good against lifeboats, though, is he?

In 1916, during the World War II, a British passenger ship is torpedoed by the German U-boat commanded by Captain Von Schoenvorts (John McEnery) and sinks. The survivors Bowen Tyler (Doug McClure) and Lisa Clayton (Susan Penhaligon) join a few crew members that has also survived and Bowen convinces them to take over the submarine that has come to the surface. They sail together but they end lost in the middle of the ocean. After many incidents between Germans and British, the two groups team-up to survive and arrive in Caprona, a land that is not charted in the maps. Soon they realize that the land has dinosaurs, pterodactyls and Neanderthals. They capture a native, Ahm (Bobby Parr), and they learn that there is oil on the land. They see the chance to refine it and leave Caprona. Will they succeed in their intent?
"The Land That Time Forgot" is an unforgettable adventure based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' novel with the same title. The plot is delightfully naive and is funny to see how we could buy a story of a land forgotten by time forty years ago. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "A Terra Que o Tempo Esqueceu" ("The Land That Time Forgot")
