A Science Fantasy Adventure. -
An interesting story sans the usual dialogue thing. A group of men (McGill, Perlman, El-Kadi) during the Ice Age must wander the land searching for fire after they lose theirs fending off an attack. During their quest, they encounter and battle various animals and tribesmen in order to survive. The special language they speak was developed by Anthony Burgess, while the primitive movements were Desmond "The Naked Ape" Morris. Perlman went on to become the Beast in TV's "Beauty and the Beast"; Chong, as a primitive babe, is the daughter of Tommy Chong of the comic duo Cheech and Chong.
