Have been waiting about fifteen years now to see Joan Crawford's final film, 'Trog' and the wait is over at last. A description of the plot along with the other two included:

The Big Cube (1969):

Adriana Roman (Lana Turner), is a former actress who marries a wealthy tycoon Charles Winthrop, who dies in a boat accident off the Mexican coast. Winthrop's daughter, Lisa, whom despises Adriana, plot to drive her insane with drugs so she and her drug-addict boyfriend, Johnny, can marry and inherit all the money for themselves. When a Broadway playwright, named Frederick Lansdale, and a close friend of Adriana suspects something, he tries to rescue Adriana from the mental hospital where she gets committed and redeem Lisa before Johnny can double cross her.

Caged (1950):

Frightened 19-year-old Marie Allen (Eleanor Parker) gets sent to an Illinois penitentiary for being an accomplice in an armed robbery. A sympathetic prison head (Agnes Moorehead) tries to help, but her efforts are subverted by cruel matron Evelyn Harper (Hope Emerson). Marie's harsh experiences turn her from doe-eyed innocent to hard-nosed con.

Trog (1970):

In England, some students are mysteriously murdered. A search team is sent out to kill the creature suspected of killing the students. The creature is captured and brought to anthropologist, Br. Brockton (Miss Joan Crawford). Dr. Brockton realizes the creature is the "TROG" the missing link between man and ape. She decides to study it and educate it. Just as she was making progress, "TROG" escapes and abducts a little girl. Brockton and colleagues franticly search for Trog hoping to find it before the police do...

What a bonus that these titles will be released on the superior WHV label and at a bargain price.

"Trog", the last film in the illustrous career of film legend Joan Crawford has gone done into cinematic history as one of the biggest and most embarrassing "monster", movies ever to be conceived. Joan Crawford of course nowadays is sadly fair game for any type of attack and "Trog", is a favourite target by her many detractors. Harsh summaries of it run to the fact that Crawford was supposedly drunk all the way through production, that it had one of the lowest budgets of any horror film made in England and that it made Crawford totally unemployable after its release thus becoming the sad final note in a brilliant career. Certainly no masterpiece, "Trog", despite some laughable moments is far from the worst horror film ever made and for Joan Crawford's as always totally committed performance despite the material she has to work with, alone is worth seeing. It marked the second time in two years that movie offers from producer Herman Cohen had brought Joan Crawford to England for filming, (Berserk! in 1968 being the other), and she fitted in excellently with the often gifted British performers, like Michael Gough, Diana Dors and Robert Hardy who supported her in these productions. Despite comments to the contrary Joan Crawford is well and truly in control of her character in this little horror effort and certainly makes "Trog", far more entertaining viewing than it probably deserves to be considering its budget.
Crawford plays Anthropologist Dr. Brockton who works at a rural research centre in England and is involved in the study of early man's development from the Apes. While hiking in the neighbouring moors some local students discover a fisher has opened up and they climb down to investigate the caverns below.

.....TROG is finally coming out on DVD! This is a sad yet funny movie, as it's really generally quite awful, but also Joan Crawford's final film roll. All the classics she starred in and it ends with her feeding a man in a bad prehistoric-ape costume 'fish and lizards'. Pour a glass of wine, pop this baby in, sit back and watch one of my favorite great-bad movies ever. Just like scientist Cliff, you'll keep repeating, "Like I have never seen......"

Great/Bad grade Z junk. For fans of "Psychotronic" type films which feature bad science, horrible make-up, stupid dialogue, and unbelievable plots. Star, Joan Crawford, in her best bad role as a totally unbelievable female scientist who studies a fake looking ape man ("Trog")found in a local cave. Look for the Pepsi product placements (Joan was married to the chairman of Pepsi at the time). Trog hates rock music! When Joan's foolish assistant plays him some (on a cheap transistor radio) he goes nuts, beaks out of his fake looking cage, and hangs a local resident on a meat hook in anger! Poor Trog is just misunderstood. Its not easy being the missing link in the 1970's. The scenes where Joan interacts and tries to communicate with Trog are especially noteworthy for their utter stupidity. The slightly stuck up and "proper" British setting only magnifies the ridiculous aspects of the film. When you are tired of watching all those Discovery Channel documentaries on Java man, etc., give this film a viewing. You won't get them mixed up.
