Years ago, I saw a rather bizarre film on USA Up All Night. It was a badly dubbed comedy about cavemen. what I remember:


1)The set was literally a set: flat ground, obvious backdrop, unrealistic props

2)One of the characters keeps losing body parts in various accidents. He's nothing but a head by the end.

3)Much of the plot centered around trying to "get with" the only cavewoman in the film (probably why USA was showing it!).

4)Saturated grainy print, crappy sound. I'd place the production in the late 60s or early 70s.

Ring any bells with anyone? Thanks!

This likely isn't the film you;re looking for, I'm guessing, but it made me think of Caveman, which I haven't seen since childhood (when I was too young to not laugh at its jokes). Hmm, but I did a search using my secret database weapon, and may have found the answer.

Is it When Women Had Tails? I seem to recall this being on cable at one point...

I wish it was, but I'm remembering something that makes the screen shots I've seen from When Women Had Tails look like Lawrence of Arabia. Maybe my memory's to blame though.
