Your Harryhausen Moment of the Day


Cavemen vs. archelon (giant sea turtle), from the movie One Million Years B.C. (1966), famous for featuring Raquel Welch in a fur bikini. Yeah, yeah, I know ... cavemen and giant prehistoric reptiles weren't around at the same time. Hey, I didn't write the movie.

So what you're saying is that the movie has Raquel Welch in a fur bikini... and you decide to post a picture of the turtle? I don't get your priorities.

Hey, I'm a chick -- an admittedly hopelessly heterosexual chick. I'd rather stare at a giant turtle (or Hal Jordan in his very tight-fitting Green Lantern uniform) than at another chick in a fur bikini. :-)

What part of Welch did Harryhausen animate?

"Look out! He's moving very slowly towards us!"

I was about to comment that Archelon's actually survived into the Cenozoic, but - they didn't. Thought I read that somewhere. Turns out they died out about 70 mya.

But, hey! You made me check up on that! Thanks, Sea!

I'm sorry but all I can say is this...

'Aaaaaaawwwww!'

Rachel Welch looks a little bald in the picture, though.

One thing's for certain -- That's a heck of a lot of turtle soup those cavemen are aiming for!

And they could all live in the shell!
