Today we’re going back in time. Way back in time. It’s one million years ago and man is living in caves. He’s roughing it out with just a fire and a stick. There isn’t much to talk about, considering his vocabulary consists of ‘unk’ and ‘gaw’. But life isn’t boring, with all the hunting and dinosaur fighting and pterodactyl ducking and Raquel Welch. Let’s not forget Raquel Welch. I give you ONE MILLION YEARS B.C.
Of course the movie is absolutely fictitious. Dinosaurs were long gone by then, and man wasn’t as modern looking as they were here, even with the furs and rude manners. And they weren’t as caucasian either (no offense my lighter geek brothers). Even fire wasn’t around then. But what the movie lacked in facts, it made up in action and storytelling that didn’t need much dialog. This was one of Raquel Welch’s early leading roles. The film makers obviously knew what they were doing by featuring Miss Welch’s acting ‘assets’ as the caring cavewoman Loana. John Richardson starred as Tumak, the caveman loner that Loana falls in love with. ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. had some violent scenes, but it was a great Saturday Monster / fantasy movie. Catch it when you can.
