Added DiffLines:

* HandsomeHeroicCaveman: While Tumak has a full beard and scruffy hair, he's played by the rather good-looking John Richardson.

Added DiffLines:

* SeldomSeenSpecies: ''Archelon'', the giant prehistoric turtle, is not very commonly featured in media.

Added DiffLines:

* StockDinosaurs: Allosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Triceratops, and what was then called Brontosaurus all put in appearances. Token non-dinos include Pteranodon, [[InNameOnly what the film claims is a Rhamphorhynchus]] and Archelon.

Added DiffLines:

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The trailer focuses a lot on the volcano eruption scene that happened near the end of the movie.


* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Though the AnachronismStew is the most obvious use of the license, another curious feature of the ecosystem as that it seems to be almost totally missing the bottom 90% of the food chain. The barren landscape (filmed in the Canary Islands) contains almost no plants or small animals, [[MorePredatorsThanPrey just one large predator after another]].

''One Million Years B.C.'' is the better-known 1966 remake of 1940's ''One Million BC'', which was the TropeNamer for the OneMillionBC image of cavemen, dinosaurs, ape-men and other real and made-up creatures of the past duking it out in a volcano-scarred landscape. The film provided a showcase for Creator/RayHarryhausen's stop-motion effects, as well as Creator/RaquelWelch's physique in her iconic FurBikini.

* ConLang: What little dialogue there is in the movie is invented (and untranslated) caveman speech. Though given the general standards of the movie, this is probably more a case of AsLongAsItSoundsForeign.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: And how. Lampshade by Ray Harryhausen, who remarked that he did not make the movie for palaeontologists and dino-nerds "who probably don't go to see these kinds of movies anyway."
