The poster to the tragically-unmade Hammer film Zeppelin v Pterodactyls
(Ganked from Airminded
, which will be of minority interest to most of you, but of great interest to a few).
Airminded provides a link
to this plot summary:
"The story was along the lines of THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, with a German Zeppelin being blown off-course during a bombing raid on London and winding up at a “lost continent”-type place."Zeppelin v Pterodactyls
would have been the Hammer version of David Allen
's Raiders of the Stone Rings
, later called The Primevals
Ah, what might have been.
Of course, what we need now is the sfx team behind Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
to hire a good team of writers and make Zeppelin v Pterodactyls
: Forgot to add: last night I got to see a theremin played live--the theme to High Anxiety
and the "Creation of the Monster" sequence from Bride of Frankenstein
