VOYAGE TO THE PLANET OF PREHISTORIC WOMEN (1968) **
Roger Corman bought a Russian sci-fi film (Planeta Burg) and used it to cobble together not one, but TWO movies! In this one, director Peter (Targets) Bogdanovich helmed the insert scenes (and provided the narration) where Mamie (Untamed Youth) Van Doren is the telepathic leader of a race of Venusian women who worship a stone pterodactyl. Meanwhile, astronauts blast off to Venus (along with a robot named John) and encounter tentacled plant monsters, lizard men, volcanoes, proof of a female ran society and of course, dinosaurs. Both this and Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet are pretty bad, but I’d have to say this movie is slightly better, just because it has Mamie in a seashell bikini.
