The Last Dinosaur

Once you get past the hilariously awful opening scene there's a tune performed by song stylist Nancy Wilson to be heard. It is likewise terrible 70s cheese but that is not due to any fault of Nancy, who was professional enough to make sure she put some of her wild talent into even the poorest source material. A canceled United States theatrical release, The Last Dinosaur was edited down for the time allotted by the network and premiered as an ABC television movie in February of 1977.

  1. Named Masten Thrust, heir to an oil empire... he's just one walking stereotype after another. The zebra fur scrapbook cover is a nice touch.

    Sadly, it doesn't seem to be available on Netflix!

  2. Was that the one where the big climax of the movie was throwing a rock at a big dinosaur.... a dinosaur so rubbery that the rock bounced into its head and out again?

  3. That should have been John McCain's theme song during that last presidential election.
