And who knew that Allosauruses were blue. Ken Begg “And who knew that Allosauruses were blue?” It’s because the T-Rexes get all the good press. Elizabeth One thing I love about paleontology: we don’t know that Allosauruses weren’t blue. Or hot pink! We just don’t know! Ericb True, they could have had tiger stripes for all we know. Rock Baker Great shots! I’m not sure what color the actual model was, but Gwangi is constantly changing color in the movie (blue, green, gray, etc.) due to, as I understand it, a new composite process that Ray didn’t have all the kinks worked out of yet. Just the same, I think The Valley of Gwangi may showcase some of Harryhausen’s very best work. Tim Lehnerer I always dug this movie because it used an Allosaurus instead of a T-Rex. Allosaurus: The Other Lizard. Sandy Petersen How can you say we didn’t know Allosaurs were blue. Just LOOK at him! Blue. And plastic-y. Just like the toys I still own.
