Did You Know?


Most of the footage depicting prehistoric monsters and volcanoes comes from the 1940 Hal Roach film One Million B.C., with the visual effects supervised by Roy Seawright, and miniatures by Frank Young. See more »


Steve tells Sandra to have her women stay at their temple, where he says they'll be safe because the Hairy Men don't know its location, and that he and his men will meet them there later. But neither Steve nor any of his crew has ever seen the temple either, so how would they know where to go? See more »

Alternate Versions

The German version of this movie runs 8 minutes longer, as an additional scene shot with different (uncredited) actresses in Germany has been cut into the plot in order to show more nudity. This seemed to be necessary to the distributor who released the movie eleven years after its US premiere, when the amount of nudity in motion pictures had increased. See more »

A Masterpiece of Compelling Imagery and Taut Dialogue
18 April 2011 | by paul vincent zecchinoSee all my reviews

A recommendation. Watch this film while trying to do something meaningful, time-sensitive, and pressing. You won't be able to do so, as the intense, gripping visuals on screen combined with taut, precisely metered dialogue will inevitably and quickly rivet your attention this masterpiece.

This is an important film, one which I had the privilege of viewing late one Sunday night recently on THIS TV movie channel. Hopefully, THIS will air it again, because as is the case with masterworks of layered subtlety, one must repeatedly examine the subject matter to discover all its nuances.

The great Lyle Talbot contributes mightily the intellectual psychodrama of this period piece.

Thespian Talbot's role as physician is deftly counterbalanced by what appears to be stock footage of cannibalistic spear-toting savages interspersed with imagery of Dinosaurs thrashing about, chasing the savages and women clad in loincloth all over what appears to be a desert wilderness outside L.A.

Yes, this is one not to miss. As astute reviewers here note, this film indeed proves that the late Edward D. Wood, Jr. did not direct all the lousy films, in fact he had quite a bit of competition during his heyday.

But given the inane, preposterous, utterly non-credible nature of this pile of celluloid trash, Mr. Wood would surely have lamented not having so done.

A sprawling epochal film of taste and beauty, layered with spears, loincloths, and girlies, one which will delight discriminating viewers for many a decade hence.

Please, if you see no other film this year, see "Untamed Women".
