Anthropologist Dr. Brockton (Joan Crawford) unearths a troglodyte (an Ice Age 'missing link" half-caveman, half-ape) and manages to domesticate him - until he's let loose by an irate land developer (Michael Gough) to go on a rampage and kidnap a little girl. Crawford's last feature film.Written by

When a reporter takes a flash photo of Trog (against the Doctor's orders) that frightens then enrages him, the flash lasts far too long. Trog's face is illuminated for a full 2-3 seconds instead of what a flash bulb would have lasted which would have been a fraction of a second. See more »
We believe that Trog could be the connection between the creatures of early civilization and man as we know him today. This Troglodyte who somehow survived is a living reminder of what happened after our ancestors the apes left the forest, and first started to walk on hind legs, and take shelter in the caves.

Was perusing the user comments for this "Crawford Classic" while chuckling & guffawing at the varied minutia & trivia all the viewers had observed. Yet I was surprised & perplexed that no one had pointed out one of the most hilarious continuity flubs ever seen for a "legitimate" theatrical release. The lapse occurs towards the end of the movie when Joan is descending down to the cave for the final encounter with Trog. As she approaches the downshaft entryway shrouded in her obligatory lab coat, her coif is the usual 20 layers of soft curls piled up at least a foot high over those trademark eyebrows. Cut to her arrival at the bottom of the shaft whereupon her hairdo has mysteriously morphed into a much shorter, much curlier, "poodle cut"!! Must have been a "mid-mineshaft" Salon where La Crawford had the opportunity to fluff up her locks. We ran & reran this sequence at least a dozen times & it got funnier on each replay (Perhaps we were alittle drunk too!). Check it out if you didn't see it the first time around.
