ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. - "This Is The Way It Was" (1966)

This week's Wild and Wolley Mammoth Wednesday feature is the most prehistoric film of 1966, 
"One Million Years B.C."

In 1940 they came out with "One Million B.C." and in 1969, they came out with "One Million AC/DC."
In between there was "One Million Years B.C."  

Looks pretty prehistoric if you ask me!

Most young men back in 1966 were not interested in seeing a movie about a bunch of sweaty, stinky cavemen, but if a movie was filled with big dinosaurs and hot chicks in furry bikinis, that was a completely different story!
And that's why this film stars the beautiful Raquel Welch as cave girl Loana.
Born in 1940 as Jo Raquel Tejada, Raquel is still looking great these days at 82 years of age!

For the monsters they brought in the world's foremost stop-action animation artist, Mr. Ray Harryhausen.

"One Million Years B.C." is basically a silent movie, except for a few names called out, and various grunts and moans.

So all Raquel has to really do is look good!

And she is very talented at looking good!

Some of the monsters are okay, but it really doesn't seem like it's Ray Harryhausen's best work!

The bonus, and the only other reason to watch this movie is the appearance of another bombshell beauty, Martine Beswick as Nupondi.

Martine is a Dungeon fave for all of her roles, including another primitive role in "Prehistoric Women" in 1967.
Martine was also perfect in the James Bond thriller "Thunderball."

And who could ever forget Martine for her role in "Dr. Jekyll And Sister Hyde?" 
Not me, that's for sure.

Raquel Welch is a gorgeous woman beyond a doubt!

But when it comes to sheer primal audacity, you've just got to go with this gal created by Brian James Riedel for the song by Hermanos Guzanos called
