Raquel Welch wears a furry bikini and roams the wilderness in this Jurassic lark. Welch has a stunning physique but no dialogue, merely some grunts and a furrowed brow, which is fine as she's not called upon to communicate much beyond fear or desire. Made by Hammer, it's an absolute hoot, as it follows the war between the Rock People and the Shell People, and throws in some wobbly prehistoric monsters, courtesy of effects maestro Ray Harryhausen. It should have co-starred Kenneth Williams and been called Carry On Caveman.

Plot Summary

Adventure starring Raquel Welch. In prehistoric times, a member of the tribe known as the Rock People is banished for fighting his father and given refuge by the Shell People. But his aggressive manner is soon at odds with the ways of the peaceful tribe.
