When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth (1969)

Set in the prehistoric past when humans and dinosaurs lived together (I know, I know!) a small tribe is struggling to survive by giving a sacrifice of a blonde woman to their god, the sun, in return for protection from the giant lizards and other creatures that prey on them.

Cavegirl Sanna, one of the sacrificial offerings, finds herself on her own when a freak storm interrupts the ceremony.

As she searches for a safe haven she encounters hostility from rival tribes and lots of huge and deadly dinosaurs.

Although the film was completed in 1968, Jim Danforth’s special effects weren’t ready and the film premiered in 1970.
