Yesterday I was thinking about this dinosaur movie I’d seen when I was a kid. This was back in the days of stop motion animation and men in rubber suits. Long before computer generated thunder lizards. I couldn’t remember the name of the film, I just knew it was about four boys who travel in a boat down a tunnel and come out the other side into the past. So that’s what I Googled.

What I’d seen at a Saturday matinee was called Journey to the Beginning of Time. What I didn’t know back then was that it had originally been a Czech film dubbed into English with a different beginning and end tacked on.

This is the version I saw. There’s some pretty good stop motion prehistoric beasts in there, but men in rubber suits make an appearance too. You can find the Czech version here!
