Doug McClure first achieved fame as Trampas in The Virginian in 1962. He also appeared in Shenandoah in 1965, with James Stewart and Katharine Ross. During the 1970s he was cast as the lead in many action adventure films, long before Indiana Jones arrived. The films were famous for epic stories, exotic landscapes and giant monsters. They were innovative in their portrayal of the creatures, with effects relying on stop motion, rear projection, models and full-sized props, providing thrilling visuals for the time. McClure and director Kevin Connor found a formula that kept audiences entertained for years and the films are now being discovered by new audiences, finding their place in film history.
The box set includes the following three films:
At The Earth’s Core (1976)

The drill proves too powerful and plunges the duo into a vast cavern at the earth’s core where evil prehistoric birds have enslaved a tribe of humans. Can the Doctor and his assistant help rescue the tribe and escape the evil clutches of their flying nemesis? Director: Kevin Connor.
