Episode 41: The Valley of Gwangi
The wild West meets the Jurassic period as we ride into the hidden valley to lasso an episode on the cowboys vs. dinosaurs creature feature The Valley of Gwangi. We comment on how the story borrows from previous dinosaur movies, marvel at the detail and artistry of special effects master Ray Harryhausen's creations, and ponder if the film could serve as an alternate origin story for Devil Dinosaur. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and pedantry about paleontological accuracy.
