I'll tell you what, February 11-12, 1977 had all the makings of a great weekend for CDF fans. If you were allowed to stay up until 11:00 on Friday the 11th, you could watch the premiere of "The Last Dinosaur". Then on Saturday you could sit down to an afternoon of "Rodan" and "Monster Zero", courtesty of Creature Double Feature!

And you STILL had the rest of the Saturday and all of Sunday to find even more entertainment! Even without VCRs, DVRs, cable and all the rest of the distractions of today it was still possible to be very entertained by TV in the 70s :wink: .


I'm sure I jumped for joy and did a happy dance with that lineup. I was good for searching each new TV Guide and marking all the good stuff to air.

 Re: The Last Dinosaur (1977)
Believe it or not, I still haven't watched my copy of "The Last Dinosaur". I'm still trying to find a time when I can get together with a couple of my friends to watch it. However, I recently picked up the February 1977 issue of TV guide from the week the movie premiered on ABC which features the full-page ad for it that Skorch posted near the beginning of this thread. That was a great read.

As an aside, look at that ad that Skorch posted if you get a chance. It's a two-page spread. The "Last Dinosaur" ad is on the left side. The right side features an ad for "Quincy M.E.", and I'd swear that Jack Klugman is reacting to the dinosaur on the other page. :lol: I know it's just a coincidence, but it's a good one!

 Re: The Last Dinosaur (1977)
BIG NEWS!!!!

I almost started a new thread about this, but figured it would be fine to use this old one...

Anyway, the Warner Bros. Archive Collection is now offering... "THE LAST DINOSAUR"!

The Archive Collection is a program where WB actually burns DVD-R's to order (guess it's for their movies that have not been made available on DVD that they figure there won't be enough demand for to warrant a full-blown DVD release). It's not quite as cool as having a DVD release of "The Last Dinosaur", but it's certainly pretty close--and the only "official" release of it in any kind of DVD format that I'm aware of. There are no special features or anything like that either. Mark had mentioned this major news on the Saturday Fright Special Facebook page and I just had to share it here! It's something many of us have been waiting a long time to see!

Mark also mentioned that Warner Archives is having one of their 5 for $50.00 sales on the Archive Collection that they occasionally have. Apparently not all the titles are included, and Mark didn't know if "The Last Dinosaur" was part of it or not, but it's still good to know about the sale anyway.

 Re: The Last Dinosaur (1977)
I have the Warner Archive GREEN SLIME disc, and it's lovely. No extras (as is the standard for these releases), but the A/V is tip-top and it's a longer cut of the film than was originally released in the US.

 Re: The Last Dinosaur (1977)
my wife was kind enough to give me a copy of the last dinosaur for my birthday a couple of weeks ago.

it's just as fun as i remember.

nothing like a jazz singer belting out a dinosaur song. :lol:

 Re: The Last Dinosaur (1977)
It's interesting that you just happened to post that now astroal. Over the Thanksgiving weekend I was desperately trying to avoid spending money on cool online DVD sales. Didn't do a very god job though... One of my purchases was with Warner Archives. While I've known about the Archive collection and was interested in a lot of the titles, I actually never ordered anything from them. Every once in a while they have a big sale where you can get five Warner Archive movies for fifty bucks (and free shipping too). Even though ten bucks a movie isn't bad at all I still balked at spending fifty bucks at one time. Well, I finally decided to take the plunge. Of course "The Last Dinosaur" was the first one I added to my order! I also got "Don't be Afraid of the Dark", "The Bermuda Depths", "The Cyclops" and "The Snow Devils". THat's a lot of fun movie watching! While fifty bucks still seems like a lot to a cheap bastid like me, I can console myself with the fact that these are movies that are difficult to find anywhere else (at least legitimately). Netflix doesn't seem to carry Warner Archive movies (I'm assuming it's because they're DVD-R discs made to order rather than true DVD releases).

Anyway, while I have a DVD-R of "The Last Dinosaur" that I picked up at the Rock and Shock show in Worcester a couple years back, I'm REALLY looking forward to finally getting my hands on this legit copy of it!

 Re: The Last Dinosaur (1977)
Yeah, I never watched the copy I picked up a couple years ago until I could watch it with a couple of my old friends. We never managed to all get together, so I finally watched it with one of them last summer. Very fun! Looking forward to getting the Warner Archive disc though. How is the quality? Not that it really matters with a movie like this, but just wondering.

 Re: The Last Dinosaur (1977)
the quality was fine. no real issues. not the greatest picture or audio but for a release like this that's fine.

there was no menu but you can skip ahead every 10 minutes

 Re: The Last Dinosaur (1977)
Cool. Thanks for the info. I'd have liked to at least have a menu and chapter selections, but now I'm even more happy that I got it for only ten bucks!

I haven't seen The Last Dinosaur since it originally aired on network TV back in 1977. I don't remember too much plot-wise, but I do remember the full page picture in TV Guide which I'm sure I cut out :)

Thanks for posting this reminder


I really should see this movie again.

*sigh* another movie added to the "must watch" pile...
