Retro WeWatch: The Valley Of Gwangi (1969)

Retro WeWatch: The Valley Of Gwangi (1969)

The Valley of Gwangi movie review from the Salty Nerds has them tearing into Alex's pick for the retro re-watch of November 2022.  The Valley of Gwangi 1969 is basically a re-hash of King Kong, but with dinosaurs and cowboys.  

Spearheaded by the legendary special effects master Ray Harryhausen as a tribute to his former mentor Willis O'Brien, this was the last movie Harryhausen ever animated dinosaurs for due to the huge failure of the movie at the box office and the disrespect Warner Brothers showed for the film.  The movie is about a cowboy named Tuck Kirby who seeks fame and fortune by capturing a dinosaur that lives in the Forbidden Valley and featuring it in a Mexican circus.  However, things go bad when the dinosaur, called Gwangi, gets loose and starts a deadly rampage through town.
