Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

Before Luke Skywalker, there was Doug McClure... His John Dark-Kevin Connor fantasy adventures were a mainstay of Summer holiday movies in the days before Star Wars: they weren't masterpieces, they didn't boast state-of-the-art special effects, but they were exactly what an audience of kids wanted from a film back in the mid 70s. Except for this one, which has always been regarded a bit like the dotty relation nobody ever talks about, and not without good reason.

Despite the success of their first two Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations, The Land That Time Forgot and At the Earth's Core, The People That Time Forgot was barely released, and it's not hard to see why. Combining the last two novels of Burroughs Caprona/Caspak trilogy and removing almost everything of interest from them, it was filmed on the cheap and looks it. This time round there are few dinosaurs, glove puppet or otherwise, and, either to keep the budget down or because they were too similar to the evil Mahars in At the Earth's Core, the flying dinosaur/human hybrids of the last novel have been replaced by a tribe of human sacrificing volcano worshipping samurai. With McClure reduced to a cameo, the film focuses on the rescue mission to the lost island of Caprona led by Patrick Wayne, Sarah Douglas and Thorley Walters but apart from Dana Gillespie's spectacular cleavage and an okay score from John Scott, there's not much to recommend it as it drags on forever to little effect. Unlike the first film there are no ideas, no plot, no sense of continuity with the original film, just the feeling of an unwelcome contractual obligation that everyone wants to get over as quickly and inexpensively as possible. When even throwing in Milton Reid as a samurai executioner can't liven it up you know you're in trouble.

‘The Land That Time Forgot’ was a classic. Okay, it was no Jurassic Park, but it was still enormous, campy fun and easy to watch. However, the sequel, where a second team is sent in to look for the survivors of the first crew, is a bit of a film too far.

It kind of reminds me of the first sequel to Planet of the Apes (Beneath). It’s got less of a budget, uses less of the original concept while trying to go in a different direction. Yes, it succeeds in not really retreading the first film, but everything about it seems ‘lesser.’

Perhaps it’s biggest failing is the fact that many will – obviously – compare it to the original. Maybe if it was a stand-alone film, people would be a little less judgemental.

However, it’s not all bad – you just have to accept it for what it is. It’s easy to watch every few years and quite fun if your expectations are low enough and don’t question how a cavegirl can remain so ‘perfectly groomed’ while living on a land with no modern appliances!

A solid 3/5 – nothing special, but not terrible either.

Well is the the follow up to The Land That Time Forgot. Not as good as the first film - but it still has loads of fake dinosaurs, action and fun.

Good rainly day film.

The People That Time Forgot is directed by Kevin Connor and adapted to screenplay by Patrick Tilley from the novel of the same name written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. it stars Patrick Wayne, Sarah Douglas, Dana Gillespie, Thorley Walters, Shane Rimmer and Doug McClure. Music is scored by John Scott and cinematography by Alan Hume.

A sequel to The Land That Time Forgot, plot finds Wayne as Major Ben McBride who arranges a mission to go and search for his missing friend Bowen Tyler (McClure). As the party go beyond the Antartic wastes they find themselves in a world populated by prehistoric creatures and primitive tribes.

There are a group of film fans of a certain age that were exposed wilfully to the joys of Kevin Connor and Doug McClure Creature Features, the four pictures made with low budgets (see also The Land That Time Forgot 1975, At the Earth's Core 1976 & Warlords of Atlantis 1978) were simply put together with a standard structure of humans discovering an unknown land, who then encounter beasties and savage races and then try to escape said world of wonder. Back then in the 70s with youthful eyes these films were magnificent things, we didn't care about clunky animatronics and miniatures, staid dialogue and poorly constructed scenes of men grappling with a man in rubber make up. Nor did us boys pay any attention to the considerable heaving bosom factor, which is here supplied with a different kind of wonder by Dana Gillespie! But they are a group of films that once loved, is a love that lasts forever, yes, it's true love.

As a young boy I loved dinosaurs and when I saw this movie's poster I was determined to see the film. I was 12 or 13 at the time and wanted to see a dinosaur film. My mum took me to a small cinema in Bromley, Kent and we sat through the movie. At my age then I wasn't so interested in dinosaurs that I didn't notice the healthy curves of Ajor (Dana Gillespie) busting (literally) out of a doe skin bikini. Not even Raquel Welch in 1,000,000 Years B.C. had been so sexually charged as this amazing beauty. I loved the film and fell in love with Dana Gillespie. At the time I wasn't even aware of the previous film The Land That Time Forgot and when I did get to see it I was delighted with it too, but it lacked the busty Dana Gillespie and so, despite probably being the better film, I never quite saw it the same as this one.

The dinosaurs weren't very "dinosaur-y", having seen later dinosaur movies, but the actors gave it their all and created a magical world. I have since bought several of these "weird" movies: The Land That Time Forgot, At The Earth's Core, The Lost Continent, The Lost Empire, to name a few and I can safely say that no matter how others might view these films they still have a certain magic that takes me back to 12 or 13 years old and my love of this film and Dana Gillespie.

It was shortly after seeing this film that I was able to see an article in the, then, broadsheet News Of The World interviewing Miss Gillespie and her laughing about another film she starred in where a landslide of rocks bounced off her huge, heaving 44" bosom as she stood on a rocky ledge. I now know this was The Lost Continent, having seen it. What a woman!
