The third fantasy movie based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels starring Doug McClure and directed by Kevin Connor (the first being 'The Land That Time Forgot' followed by 'At Earth's Core'). A party travels to the Antarctic to search for Bowen Tyler (McClure) who has been missing in the region for several years.
If you like big fake dinosaurs--and who doesn't?--then The People That Time Forgot
is the movie for you. The third in a loosely themed trilogy of Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations from director Kevin Connor, all of which starred Doug McClure, this one also features Patrick Wayne (son of John) as the intrepid Major Ben McBride, searching the Arctic for his lost friend (McClure). Sarah Douglas is at his side as Charly, the spunky lady photographer with a dainty puckish streak. As luck would have it, they come across a tropical zone that is home to big fake dinosaurs, surly Neanderthals and nubile cavewomen with truly astonishing cleavages. Ah, but if only it were that simple. An evil rival tribe has been exterminating the gentle cave people and must be stopped. Whatever else you may want to say about producers Samuel Z Arkoff and John Dark, they simply do not skimp on explosions. The People That Time Forgot
has a detonation-filled corker of an ending that leaves the cast absolutely showered with dirt clods. Highly entertaining. --Ali Davis
