One Million Years B.C.

Something for every demographic.

This wild ‘n woolly 1966 adventure flick offers Raquel Welch in a fur bikini, plus Ray Harryhausen’s stop-motion dinosaurs terrorizing the prehistoric landscape.

Are you not entertained?

Some might quibble with the fact humans and dinosaurs are living in the same time period, which seems to fly right in the face of historical reality, but the filmmakers couldn’t care less.

“We didn’t make it for professors,” Harryhausen said. “Who probably don’t go to see these kinds of movies anyway.”

Well, except for the professors who wanted to study the physics of Raquel’s physique, that is…

And that’s how we broke a large window at Videoville…

Back in my early video store days, when VHS tapes dominated, there emerged rare creatures called laser discs, that were going to be the next big thing.

Until they weren’t.

Think a DVD, just like 20 times bigger.

Someone (maybe me) decided to test out the sound system in a store which was, at the time, a small converted house.

With the volume cranked way past 11, the T-Rex let loose with a mighty roar and … promptly popped a crack down the large front pane of our shack.

Whoopsie.

But worth it.
