The Valley of Gwangi

1969 G

James Franciscus, Gila Golan and Richard Carlson star in this James O'Connolly-helmed cult hit, featuring the animation work of Ray Harryhausen, about travelers who accidentally come across a fabled valley in Mexico where dinosaurs still exist. But when Gwangi, an Allosaurus, becomes targeted as the headliner of a traveling circus act they want to create, the humans determined to capitalize on this prehistoric discovery earn its wrath.
