Caprona

review by
Mike Haberfelner



Ben McBride (Patrick Wayne) heads an expedition to the Antartica where his friend Tyler (Doug McClure) went missing in some prehistoric wonderland - see The Land That Time Forgot. But of course, while surveying the area by bi-plane, he and his team are soon downed by a pterodactyl, and while he has engineer Hogan (Shane Rimmer) to stay behind and make repairs to the plane, McBride, photographer and later love interest Charly (Sarah Douglas) and scientist Professor Norfolk (Thorley Walters) go scout the area for traces of Tyler - and they don't have to search long, as soon enough they save a girl, Ajor (Dana Gillespie), from dinosaurs, who just happens to be a good friend of Tyler's. But unfortunately she tells them Tyler has been captured by the evil Nagas who have massacred most of her tribe. So our motley crew is off to Naga city, where they at first are to be sacrificed to dinosaurs, and after their escape, they are recaptured, and while Charly and Agor are to be made brides of the volcano at the center of the city (meaning they are to be thrown into hot burning lava), McBride and the Professor are just locked away - where they against all odds find Tyler. With him, they overcome their Naga guards, then free the women and flee through some caves. The volcano starts to erupt, and yet some Nagas choose to try to recapture our heroes rather than made a dash for safety, which leads to Tyler saving the others and dying a hero's death. The others, including Ajor, of course make it to the biplane for a timely escape ...

 

Now 1977 was the year of Star Wars, and with it spectacle genre cinema had finally found its permanent foothold in big budget mainstream Hollywood. And compared to a big budget production like Star Wars, The People That Time Forgot, done on a budget too low for what it was trying to achieve, had to look old - but even without the comparison, this film at hand looked a bit out of place in the late 1970s and looks much more alike adventure Bs from roughly a decade earlier. But all that said, The People That Time Forgot does have definite entertainment value, there's always plenty going on on-screen, translating the joy of boundless adventure of Edgar Rice Burroughs' writing as such to film rather nicely, the dinosaurs and effects work are rather ok, scantily clad Dana Gillespie brings some sensousness to the otherwise very innocent yarn, and the most is made out of the film's locations. Of course, on the flip-side there's flat characters, not all the acting is above just adequate, and Kevin Connor's direction is very much on the old-fashioned and functional side of things. But all that only contributes to a nice trip down memory lane that's sure to please fans of genre nostalgia (like myself).
