Although the film was completed in 1968, Jim Danforth's special effects weren't ready. When the film premiered in 1970, the wait seemed worth it as it garnered Oscar recognition. See more »

Several nude scenes were filmed, but tend to be excluded from the U.S. version of the movie. They include: Robin Hawdon and Victoria Vetri's love-making in the cave and the scene where they both go skinny-dipping. The aforementioned nude scenes are featured in the U.K. version (as Victoria Vetri revealed in a 1984 interview). See more »
A movie that just seems to get better with the passing years. The dialog is in "caveman" with no subtitles, which means the story is told almost entirely in visual terms. But, hey, that's how movies got started in the first place! Worth noting is the Canary Island scenery which is fresh and evocative. The human scenery is attractive as well with stars Victoria Vetri and Robin Hawdon spending the entire production in nothing more than fur bikinis. Hawdon's career in film acting never took off but he did a lot of stage work in England and a lot of writing as well. Worth reading is his 1984 novel, "A Rustle in the Grass" -- a delightful novel (a la "Watership Down") about a colony of ants. His most memorable scene in this movie consists of "beefcake-bondage" and it comes when he's tied spread-eagle-style between two wooden posts. Fuel for a fire is then piled between his spread-open legs. Curiously, though, his tormentors allow him to keep on his loincloth which certainly won't protect his more sensitive parts from the rising flames but which will, unfortunately, block some of the view and thus lessen the fun. Well, they were only cavemen and thus have a lot to learn about the nudity factor in torture and executions.
