Is it all right if we get back to work now?
Thanks awfully. Sorry to be such a bore.
Not at all, Lady Charlotte. It's rather fun.

Ajor, Ajor, Ajor, Ajor, Ajor (Dana Gillespie in a cavegirl outfit!)
"The PEOPLE That Time Forgot" is the much inferior 1977 sequel to "The Land That Time Forgot" from 1975. The basic plot is essentially identical to "Beneath the Planet of the Apes," albeit far less serious.
An expedition (including Patrick Wayne and Sarah Douglas) goes to the savage arctic hidden land of Caprona to find Bowen Tyler (Doug McClure). There they run into fairly cheesy prehistoric creatures and a ravishing cavewoman named Ajor (Dana Gillespie). She leads them to the Mountain of the Skull wherein Tyler is held captive by a hostile neanderthal-like tribe dressed in cool samurai apparel.
WHAT WORKS: The Spanish locations are outstanding, as are the costumes and many of the life-size sets and opticals. The story moves along pretty quickly (the flick's only 90 minutes long). Patrick Wayne and Doug McClure are Great and Dana Gillespie is awe-inspiring in her skimpy cavegirl outfit, in fact, in my opinion Dana blows the more popular Raquel Welch in "One Million Years BC" out of the water (Raquel is a bit too thin to my tastes; Dana has far better curves).
WHAT DOESN'T WORK: The story is less serious than "The Land That Time Forgot" (i.e. campier) and not nearly as compelling; in other words, don't expect for a second to be enraptured by the story. The miniature sets are too-obviously unreal and the creature F/X are only mediocre-to-poor (for the time period).
FINAL ANALYSIS: If you're into these types of Edgar Rice Burroughs adventures, "People" is certainly worth having in your video library. It's nothing exceptional or captivating, but it's certainly fun, light and brisk. And catching the voluptuous Dana Gillespie at the height of her physical beauty is a must. Lastly, it's far, far better than the ridiculously awful "At the Earth's Core."
