I've heard some say it's his worst film; from what I've seen, that dishonor goes to Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. I like pretty much all the others. The Golden Voyage of Sinbad might be my favorite.
Hey, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad
favorite Ray Harryhausen film, too! I saw it in a theater in PA in 1974, when it was first released.
Like they say, you never forget your first time.
And yes, One Million Years B.C.
is pretty good, too. Just be sure you get the Kino Lorber release, because that's got the unedited U.K. version of the film and the slightly edited U.S. one.
And also get the sequel When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth
from Warner Archive (even though Jim Danforth did the stop-motion special effects on this one), because that's
also the unedited U.K. version as well.
Warner Archive's also got the third film, Creatures the World Forgot
, too, but this one has no
dinosaurs or any prehistoric animals in it at all. I'd only recommend it if you're a hardcore completeist (forgive me if the last word here is spelled wrong, but the dictionary I tried to look it up in didn't have the word in it at all).
I believe all three of them are on Blu-ray.
