One Million B.C. (1940)–Victor Mature and Carole Landis in Camp Classic

Victor Mature, Carole Landis and Lon Chaney, Jr. battle the elmenets and engage in conflicts with each other in One Million B.C.

This Oscar-mominated adventure film, produced and directed by the legendary Hal Roach, has become a cult classic of sorts over the years.
