Alternate Versions

The British version runs 100 minutes and features 9 minutes of footage cut from American prints. This includes a scene where Nupondi (Martine Beswicke) does a provocative dance; Tumak (John Richardson) tastes from the container of paint in the Shell Tribe's cave; and an extended violent scene of a fight among the ape-men while Tumak and Loana (Raquel Welch) hide, and extended scenes showing Tumak, as he leaves his tribe, shown wandering the valley, and coming across the skeleton of a giant lizard. The widescreen laser disc is the British version (which gives Richardson first billing), while the VHS release is the American version (which gives Welch first billing). See more »

User Reviews

 
The first classic about prehistory
12 September 2018 | by afonsobritofalvesSee all my reviews

Despite being historically incorrect and having very bad special effects (mainly the iguana scene and the african wild boar scene), I find the film quite interesting, with a perfect stop-motian and action scenes, drama and quite good survival. Highly recommend.
