Frame Enlargement From ONE MILLION BC Test Footage





A frame enlargement of test footage from Hal Roach's ONE MILLION BC ( 1940 ) shows one of the lizards which stood in for a dinosaur, which someone seems to be getting ready for a scene. The lizards were outfitted with rubber fins and filmed at higher than normal camera speeds in order to convey the illusion of size by seemingly slowing their movements.
