During World War II, an American bomber pilot is rescued after drifting at sea aboard a raft. After being administered truth serum, he tells the doctor a story of how he and the three survivors of his plane crash washed up on an island that was inhabited by a tribe of beautiful primitive cave-women, dinosaurs and a group of savage cavemen who are bent on abducting the women for breeding purposes.

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 »


When the crew sights the island, three of them are looking at it straight ahead while the fourth (Benny) is looking off to his right. 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 »

Tacky, Funny, and Truly Weird
1 June 2005 | by mrb1980See all my reviews

This movie's a variation on the "men-are-stranded-with-lost-civilization-of-sex-starved-women" theme. A WWII bomber is forced down in the ocean, and after paddling their raft for a few days, the surviving men come ashore on the usual uncharted island, which is ruled by a race of women descended from the Druids (!).

That's only the beginning of the fun, as the women are constantly pestered by "The Hairy Men", who are a bunch of actors dressed in animal skins and covered by fake hair. A few of the usual shots of lizards from "One Million Years B.C." are thrown in, there are battles with the "Hairy Men", and a volcanic eruption climax predictably ends the movie. The whole implausible story is told by Conrad in flashback to serious doctor Lyle Talbot and a nurse, who find the whole story a bit wild until "evidence" of its veracity is uncovered in the final shot.

This movie is entertaining due to its bizarre plot, laughable dialogue, and plentiful action sequences. There's nothing quite like it, to be sure, so watch with an open mind.

P.S.: Nomination for the movie's best line: "Ed, stand guard. Shoot anything with hair on it that moves!"
