The adventure-fantasy film One Million Years B.C. features the wondrous stop-motion creations of legendary special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen (Jason and the Argonauts, Mysterious Island) and the equally magnificent vision of the gorgeous Raquel Welch (Mother, Jugs & Speed) in the breakthrough role that made her an international sex symbol and Hollywood star.

In this vivid view of prehistoric life, a man from the vicious Rock People, Tumak (John Richardson, Black Sunday) is banished from his home, but soon finds himself living among the kind, gentle Shell People. There, he falls in love with the beautiful Loana (Welch). The two decide to strike out on their own, living by their wits in a deadly land of treacherous beasts and unknown dangers, leading to a thrilling climax by the edge of an angry volcano.

One Million Years B.C. was directed by Don Chaffey (Jason and the Argonauts) and featured a strong supporting cast that included Martine Beswick (Thunderball) and Robert Brown (The Living Daylights). The 100-minute international cut and the 91-minute U.S. cut are both included on this Blu-ray.
