ONE MILLION YEARS B.C.
Director - Don Chaffey; Screenplay - Michael Carreras adapted from an (screenplay) original screenplay by Mickell Novack, George Baker and Joseph Frickert; Producer -Michael Carreras; associate producers - Aida Young and Hal Roach; ; Music - Mario Nascimbene; Cinematography - Wilkie Cooper; Editor - Tom Simpson; Art Direction - Robert Jones; Makeup - Wally Schneiderman; Special effects - Ray Harryhausen, George Blackwell and Bob Cuff.

Cast: Raquel Welch (Loana), John Richardson (Tumak), Percy Herbert (Sakana), Robert Brown (Akhoba), Martine Beswick (Nupondi), Jean Wladon (Ahot), Lisa Thomas (Sura), Malya Nappi (Tohana).

           Tumak, a caveman from the Rock tribe, is banished to the harsh desert because of a fight with his father, Akoba, the tribal leader. After surviving many dangers, such as a giant lizard and a giant spider, he collapses on a remote beach, where he is spotted by "Loana the Fair One" and her fellow fisherwomen of the Shell Tribe. They are about to help him when an Archelon makes its way to the beach. Men of the Shell Tribe arrive and apparently fend off the giant turtle with spears.
           Tumak is taken to their village, where Loana tends to him. When the tribe women are fishing, an Allosaurus attacks. The tribe flees to their cave but in the panic, a small girl is left trapped up a tree. Tumak seizes a spear and rushes forward to defend her. Emboldened by this example, Loana runs out to snatch the child to safety and other men come to Tumak's aid, one of whom is killed before Tumak is finally able to kill the creature.
           In the aftermath, a funeral is held for the dead men. Leaving the funeral early, Tumak re-enters the cave, and apparently attempts to steal a spear. A sleeping man wakes, and angered by the attempted theft, fights for his spear. The ensuing commotion attracts the rest of the tribe, who unite to cast Tumak out. Loana leaves with him, and one of the men of the tribe - Ahot - gives him a spear.
           Meanwhile, Tumak's brother, Sakana, tries to kill their father in order to take power. Akoba survives, but Sakana is the new leader. While this is happening, Tumak and Loana encounter a battle between a Ceratosaurus, and a Triceratops, eventually won by the Triceratops which fatally gores its opponent.
           The outcasts wander back into the Rock Tribe's territory and Loana meets the tribe, but again there are altercations. The most dramatic one is a fight between Tumak's current love interest, Loana, and his old girlfriend, "Nupondi the Wild One". Loana wins the fight, and refuses to strike the killing blow, despite the encouragement of the other members of the tribe.
           While the cave people are swimming - seemingly for the first time, and inspired by Leona's example - they are attacked by a a female Pteranodon. In the confusion, Loana is snatched into the air by the creature, and dropped bleeding into the sea when a second pterosaur intervenes. Tumak initially believes her dead, but she has survived the ordeal. They are reunited just as war breaks out between their tribes: the Rock Tribe, seemingly jealous of the Shell Tribe, attacks without warning. In the midst of a savage hand-to-hand battle, a volcano suddenly erupts: the entire area is stricken by earthquakes and landslides that overwhelm both tribes. As the film ends, Tumak, Loana, and the surviving members of both tribes emerge from cover to find themselves in a ruined, near-Lunar landscape. They all set off - now united - to find a new home.
