an old fashioned pulp adventure was an oddity in 1978 (Raiders of the Lost Ark was still 3 years away) it was made by many of the people from Amicus Films that adapted three of Edgar Rice Burroughs books to film to various degrees of success (I still love At The Earth's Core, despite it's flaws).
or perhaps it wasn't a puppet at all!
not sure what these walking weirdo lizards are called, but it's a neat picture.
the grabs came from the R2 DVD of the movie. I had a copy from Cinemax many years ago, but it was faded and full of scratches. I'm wondering why MGM didn't put this out on a "Midnight Movies" double disc, but they may not actually own it. the R2 looks really good though. I'm glad Eric and I got to see this on the big screen back in the day.
