The Last Dark (The Last Chronicles of Thomas Coven&hellip by Stephen Donaldson
5.0 out of 5 stars Worth waiting for, 15 May 2014

Cesta do praveku (A Journey into the Primeval Time&hellip
5.0 out of 5 stars Good film for all ages, 13 Jun 2013
I first saw this film in the 60's, in English and enjoyed. After nearly 59 years, I found it again on YouTube, sadly the YouTube versions is no longer available, but this version has been released commercially.
The American one starts in boycott and the museum of natural history, this one starts in Europe, un specified. Why they start their journey ibubinportant, they both involve travelling on a river.
They encounter animals fro ariousties, theeffectsare goofor their time dialogue and acting are a bit wooden,but when you consider there are only the4 of them ib the film,it is impressive.
