The film was photographed entirely on location in South Africa. The vast areas of naked flesh are nearly as expansive as the desert locations in this, Hammer’s first X-rated prehistoric romp.

However, despite the title, the film doesn’t include a single creature “the world forgot”, there are no dinosaurs, with their extinction this time being due to a lack of budget, rather than to any sudden climatic change or the earth being hit by a giant asteroid. A case not so much of being forgotten as being unaffordable!

Julie Ege was a former Miss Norway whose brief film career also included the Marty Feldman comedy, “Every Home Should Have One” (1970) and Hammer’s “The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires” (1974). She died from breast cancer at the age of 64
