(C'mon, TCM. When you gonna give us Victoria Vetri as a cavewoman adopted by a near-sighted brontosaurus?)
Does TCM take requests? Because that sounds like fun.
I'll be honest. I haven't seen the movie since I was a kid, but I remember finding it very silly at the time--and enjoying it thoroughly. And, yes, as I recall, there was a sequence where Vetri was cast out of her tribe because she was a blonde (!) and ends up taking shelter from a storm inside a giant egg shell. Along comes a myopic momma bronto who finds Vetri inside the egg and naturally assumes that this voluptuous blonde cavewoman in a fur bikini is a newborn baby brontosaurus and adopts her as one of her own . . . .

I swear by the great blazing orb in the sky that I'm not making this up!

Digression: Hammer prehistoric movies got a lot of mileage out of the eternal conflict between blondes and brunettes. The same issue arises in ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. and, even more so, in PREHISTORIC WOMEN, where the brunettes have conquered the blondes and forced them into slavery . . . .
