The Land that Time Forgot (1975) - (Doug McClure) Egyptian one-sheet
This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian one-sheet poster designed by Ahmed Fouad for the 1975 Kevin Connor film The Land that Time Forgot based on the 1918 novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs with screenplay by James Cawthorn and Michael Moorcock and starring Doug McClure as Bowen Tyler. Plot summary: During World War I a German U-boat takes aboard the survivors after it sinks a British ship. The surviors then take over the U-boat and guide it inland on a river in the lost land of Caprona. They soon discover Caprona is a living prehistoric time capsule populated by supposedly extinct dinosaurs such as the allosaurus, the triceratops, the styracosaurus, the polacanthus, the dipldocus, the ceratosaurus, the pterodactyl, the plesiosaurus, the mosasaurus and primitive humans along with a few convenient burning pools of oil useful for cooking or operating a submarine that has run out of fuel. After a brief interval a spate of volcanic eruptions creates a completely different scenario.
