Git Along Li’l Gwangi

gwangi1

Down Mexico way, a huckster named Tuck (James Franciscus, Beneath The Planet Of The Apes, Cat O’ Nine Tails) running a Wild West show and an archaeologist friend discover a tiny prehistoric horse, eventually tracing its origin to a valley that time forgot, full of dinosaurs. Tuck decides to rustle up a dino  (the titular Gwangi) and use him as an attraction in his show. Brilliant idea…Guess he never saw King Kong (whose animator Willis O’Brien came up with the original story). Oh, did I mention that Gwangi is a T-Rex? Mucho stop-motion mayhem ensues, courtesy of Ray Harryhausen…
