Adventure-seeker Ted Osborne has convinced his finacee Carole to finance his expedition to an uncharted South Pacific island supposedly populated with dinosaurs. Piloting their ship is Captain Tarnowski, a ruthless alcoholic suffering from malaria- induced bouts of insanity. When they arrive at the island, they discover that the stories they have heard are all true. Will they survive to tell anyone what they've found?

So spectacular - it took one year to produce! See man's first attempt to destroy monstrous beasts! See pre-historic denizens that defy the imagination!

All the footage of the principal actors was shot on sound stages at General Service Studios (now Hollywood Center Studios). Only the second unit filming dinosaurs and sloth in Palmdale, Corriganville, and the beach, were on location. All shots of the principals and monsters in the same shot were achieved with rear projection effects. See more
I hate bringing you to a place like this, Carol.
Don't be silly, Ted. I've been in worse places in New York and I had to pay a cover charge too. Only there, it's called Slumming. I'll survive and love it.
