Two cavemen, The Duke and Stonejaw Steve, call on Miss Araminta Rockface. The hated rivals fight, and Steve wins when he throws The Duke into a pot of boiling water. A title card introduces a third rival, "our unassuming hero, Theophilus Ivoryhead." Miss Rockface invites the three men into her father's drawing room/cave, apologizing for not offering tea, since it has not been discovered yet. The Duke and Steve fight again, and everyone rushes out of the cave. Mr. Rockface notices his pot of food is empty; earlier, Wild Willie the Missing Link had eaten it. Mr. Rockface tells the three suitors they will have to procure their own dinner. Steve locates a desert quail and shoots an arrow at it, but the arrow misses the quail and happily (for Steve) hits The Duke's behind. Meanwhile, Wild Willie is still hungry and goes hunting for snakes. He finds a dinosaur's tail instead, and when he tries to eat it the dinosaur kills him. Luckily, Theophilus witnesses this scene; after the dinosaur ... Written by
Although many of the split-reel shorts that O'Brien made for Edison were abandoned for legal reasons and others were simply shelved, "The Dinosaur and the Missing Link" was reissued by itself under the title "The Dinosaur and the Baboon." See more »
Its amazing to see what O'Brien was able to create so early on in the history of film. The motion picture camera was barely new and he made such a groundbreaking piece of work with it. Every stop-motion lover or animator should see this film, its truly fantastic for its time. I had just seen a preview of this on the King Kong DVD and to actually see it is a joy. Its a shame that no video documentation on his techniques could have been made, I guess we just have to figure things out for ourselves. Its kind of surreal to watch with technology today what was shot on such crude and primitive equipment in the early 1900's, but hopefully this means we will be able to enjoy pioneers in stop motion like O'Brien's work for years to come.
