Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

One Million B.C. (1940) A group of hikers are caught in a rainstorm and go into a cave for shelter. While in the cave they meet an archaeologist who is studying some of the paintings on the wall. The archaeologist then entertains the hikers with a story he has been able to interpret from the paintings. He tells the story of a young caveman named Tumak, the son of the chief of the uncivilized Rock Tribe, and Loana, the daughter of the chief of the more peaceful Shell Tribe. He tells of their struggles for survival and how the two tribes eventually became one.

Movie Trivia:
  • In order to get the lizards to move, heaters had to be turned on full blast because reptiles don't move in cold weather.
  • When the film was released in Britain, it was heavily edited due to their strict laws against animal cruelty.
  • Originally, D.W. Griffith was supposed to direct the film. However, he quit in the middle of filming so Hal Roach and his son completed the project.
  • According to an article in the New York Times on 21 April 1940, D.W. Griffith, who worked as producer on the film, had his name removed from the credits because of a disagreement with Hal Roach. He said "Mr. Roach did not feel that it was necessary to give the characters as much individuality as I thought was needed, and so I did not wish to appear responsible for the picture by having my name on it."
  • The special effects were so good that special effect footage from this film was used in numerous other films produced well into the 1960s.
