“One Million Years B.C.”, a 1966 Hammer produced remake of the 1940 Victor Mature/Carole Landis prehistoric vehicle “One Million B.C.”, is a film that defies serious criticism. After all, since it’s general knowledge that dinosaurs and cave people did not co-exist and that it’s very unlikely any cavegirl ever resembled the lovely Raquel Welch (she of the impeccably combed cavehair), there is little reason for the critical mind to take the anachronistic nature of the production with even a grain of proverbial sea salt.

I like Raquel’s fellow cavegirls’ version of UGS. The originals, then, huh? They look rather new, like just off the mastadon earlier.
Then stayed tuned for the Stonewear Spring collection featuring Trilobite Tank Tops and Coelacanth Slacks, perfect seasonal wear for the Cavebound Cutie.
Hmm… clicking the link doesn’t get me there.
Hopefully the problem is fixed. Sorry.
