Kino Lorber takes you back in time to ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. on February 14th!


I've been a huge fan of Ray Harryhausen ever since I was a little hobgoblin, and ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. features some of my favorite work by the late stop-motion master. Plus it doesn't hurt to see Raquel Welch in a furry bikini! I can't wait to add this to my collection and compare the U.S. and international cuts of the film, which are both included on this release!

Synopsis: In this vivid view of prehistoric life, a man from the vicious Rock People, Tumak (John Richardson, BLACK SUNDAY) is banished from his home, but soon finds himself living among the kind, gentle Shell People. There, he falls in love with the beautiful Loana (Raquel Welch, 100 RIFLES, FUZZ, FATHOM), in the role that made her an international sex symbol and a major star.

The two decide to strike out on their own, living by their wits in a deadly land of treacherous beasts and unknown dangers, leading to a thrilling climax by the edge of an angry volcano. The stunning primeval creatures were created by the legendary special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen (THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS, CLASH OF THE TITANS, et al.).

ONE MILLION YEARS B.C., a true science-fiction classic, was directed by Don Chaffey (JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS) and featured a strong supporting cast that included Martine Beswick (THUNDERBALL), Robert Brown (THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS), Percy Herbert (TOO LATE THE HERO) and Yvonne Horner (PREHISTORIC WOMEN).
