Quotes

Whiteley: 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.
Dietz: 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.
Olson: He's not very good against lifeboats, though, is he?

If only it was as good as the poster...
17 July 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The poster for The Land That Time Forgot made it look like this was going to be the greatest film ever made when I was a kid - dinosaurs, U-boats, cavemen, erupting volcanoes and Doug McClure: how could it NOT be great? Well, this being the mid-70s, the crummy special effects in the form of Roger Dickens' prehistoric puppets that don't exactly give Jurassic Park a run for its money. But still, this low-budget adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' terrific adventure novel does have some good ideas in its script as well as dinosaurs, U-boats, cavemen, erupting volcanoes and Doug McClure, so it's not a total wash, and compared to the incredibly poor sequel, The People That Time Forgot, which threw away all that was best about the premise, it's still fun, if somewhat muted. And it has a really great poster.
