The movie may be lost, but the animation survives!
To be frank, I've never seen the movie "The Animal World" but as a kid, I inherited the View-Master reels, and later the "Prehistoric Animals" packet, from my older brother... Boy! Did I wish I could see the movie one day! Being a monster movie buff, I bought the movie "The Black Scorpion" on DVD lately and to my surprise, I found out that the entire "Dinosaur Sequence" animated by Willis O'Brien and Ray Harryhausen from "Animal World" was included as an extra feature on it! Wow! I finally saw it! And it was worth the wait... in part. I'm giving it a rating of 8/10 because the sequence is composed of superb stop-motion animation by two great masters, but also of cheesy looking dinosaur puppets... Anyway, it's great fun to look at!
