Originally the film was to include a tyrannosaurus, but the very conservative head of Hammer ordered Val Guest and Jim Danforth to remove the creature because he thought the creature's stance feigned the stereotypical stance of gay men. See more »

The original 1970 UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC to edit some scenes of violence for an 'A' certificate including the fights with the snake, the pterodactyl and the man-eating plant. The film was re-released for cinema in 1980 and this print was culled from the edited U.S print, though the UK censors removed all traces of nudity. This latter version was the print released on Warner video in 1988. See more »
When I was a kid, my older brother bought a cheap, B/W, very dark copy of this movie on super-8mm to play on his projector, from an ad in «Famous Monsters»... Wow! Did I love this movie!!! I must have watched it at least 50 times!
Since then, I've always wanted to see a complete version (because the reel my brother had bought was only a 15 minutes version of it) of this movie but, with no luck. Until yesterday that is, when I found a used VHS of it, and for a mere $5, I finally saw with my own eyes what my imagination could only supply till now: vibrant colors, longer scenes, "ancient" dialogues, etc...
It was better than I had imagined! I was glued to the TV set like I was 6, all over again...
I read the users comments before writing this one and found it sad that some comments, are missing the point completely! This ain't an historical movie! It's pure escapism fun! The same way "The Valley of Gwangi" is, or any Harryhausen movie was... Watching this movie made me regret having thrown out all my old «Prehistoric Scenes» Aurora model kits!
