Set in Mexico at the turn of the 20th century, this sci-fi western pits cowboys against dinosaurs. Desperate for new attractions to infuse excitement and ticket sales into their Wild West show, cowgirl T.J. Breckenridge (Gila Golan) and cowboy Tuck (James Franciscus) seek out the Forbidden Valley, where they discover a lost world overrun with prehistoric monsters. Special-effects guru Ray Harryhausen manages a dazzling array of stop-motion animation feats of wizardry. The Valley of Gwangi would be his last on-screen foray into dinosaur effects, and it is a fantastic send-off.
