PLOT:
The Land That Time Forgot (1975): The story begins in June of 1916. World War I is raging on land as well as in the water. A German submarine controlled by Captain Von Schoenvorts (John McEnery) spots a British warship and torpedos it. Two of the survivors are Bowen Tyler (Doug McClure) and Lisa Clayton (Susan Penhaligon), civilians. Pretty soon they discover that some of the British officers survived as well, including Captain Bradley (Keith Barron). The survivors watch the submarine come out of the water and devise a plan to hijack it. They row the lifeboats over to the sub and successfully take the German crew hostage. Tyler commands the crew to sail due West to the United States. After 6 days, no land turns up. Tyler discovers that the Germans placed a magnet next to the compass, and that they had really been traveling south for 6 days. This means they are actually near South America. They find an island surrounded on all sides by ice and rock. The only way in is through an underwater cave. Captain Von Schoenvorts believes this to be a legendary island known as "Caprona". The two crews realize that on this island, the war means nothing. They decide to put their differences aside, cooperate with each other, and explore the island. Once inside the island, the crews realize that Caprona is a lost world of dinosaurs and cavemen. The biggest question is, "Will they get out alive?"

The People That Time Forgot (1977): Tyler's message in a bottle is found off of the coast of Scotland at the end of 1917. A year later, an expedition is formed to find Tyler and the island of Caprona. The expedition includes Tyler's boyhood friend Maj. Ben McBride (Patrick Wayne), Lady Charlotte Cunningham (Sarah Douglas), Dr. Edwin Norfolk (Thorley Walters), and pilot Hogan (Shane Rimmer).

This is a great double-feature Drive-In fair. The monsters are hokey, but this is still great family type fun. They were done on a shoestring so what do you expect? Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs novel The Land People Forgot has sort of a Lost World premise. Americans and Brits are travelling to South America when they are torpedoed by a German U-Boat. Later the survivors manage to catch up and overtake the submarine. They end up finding a lost continent, before you can say "Is Barney Purple" there are monsters trying to make lunch out of our explorers. Instead, they make Barney Burgers. Then they find T-Tex, cavemen and all sorts of adventures. However, Doug McClure (Travis of The Virginian) and Susan Penhaligon are left behind in the final brouhaha, which leaves the opening for the second movie. The People Time Forgot.

Patrick Wayne and Sarah Douglas star in the second film. It has the feel of the second Planet of the Apes where they come to find what happened to Chuck-baby. This time Wayne and Douglas are flying into the island to see if they can find McClure and Penhaligon. There is more monster chompings, a sexy gal in a One Million Years B.C. costume that says she knows McClure and can lead them to him. It's a race of time to keep away from the bad guys and find McClure before the whole bloody isle goes BOOM!

So pop the popcorn, turn out the lights and pretend you are at a Drive-In. They play better!

These two titles, The land that time forgot and the people that time forgot, is great saturday afternoon matinee fare. This film set has an excellent film to DVD transfer and the sound is great too. The only thing missing is a nice little featurette oh the story and script and of course, the actors. What a hand picked cast in both of these flicks.
This is a great way to spend watching a dvd on a rainny afternoon.

When I first saw these titles I assumed they were very low budget second feature films - the type that satisfied kids but really no one else. But that was OK with me. I have many memories of filling Sunday afternoons with just that type of film with my buddies during my pre-teen years. What a surprised to find these films, while true to the type, are quality-wise a good bit more.

The first thing that struck me was the quality of the set used to emulate a First World War submarine in The Land That Time Forgot. We are used to seeing WWII subs and if such a set had been used it would have gone unnoticed, at least by me. But the producers cared enough to make the vintage appear correct. And the cinematography captured the confined feel of the place too, much more so than in what I would have expected - a quickly set up, over-lit set.

Same with the dialog and the character development. Again, not what I expected. Better by far!

The story itself however fit the bill perfectly, Classic Edgar Rice Burroughs! Delightful!

Any shortcomings? Well yes. The stop animation was, while not terrible, certainly not up to the standards of Ray Harryhousen or Willis O'Brien. But then again, whose is?

Bottom line: If you too have memories of Sunday afternoons spent in the movie house watching young people's thrillers these will remind you of exactly why. Not high brow. Not ostentatious. Just good, simple, cinematic fun!
