Four young boys visit a dinosaur exhibit at the New York city Museum of Natural History. They then row out onto Central Park Lake where they find a secret cave and paddle into a wondrous prehistoric world filled with the very dinosaurs they had just seen. Written by
Some of the prehistoric animal reconstructions have been modeled after the artwork of renowned Czech painter Zdenek Burian. This is perhaps most apparent on the "Brontosaurus", which is standing in almost the exact same pose as in Burian's famous piece and has the exact same detailing on its body. See more »
The sound is out-of-sync during the stegosaurus examination scene. Most noticeable when the boys are measuring the length of the dinosaur. See more »
I used to watch this movie on Garfield Goose (Chicago children's program in the 1960's) and was lucky to purchase 2 copies a couple of years ago. I actually found the movie (VHS format) in a drug store in South Bend, Indiana. My six year old daughter loves the movie as I did some 39 years ago. I wish I had it when my oldest daughter was younger; at age 16, she's not interested. Finding this movie was next to impossible to locate; I've been looking several years for it without any luck. An outfit in New York released the film in 1994 and I will be glad to give you names, addresses if interested.
