Description by OLDIES.com:

A comet, inhabited by prehistoric beasts and men, sweeps two men away from earth. They discover cave people and river people are enemies but when an earthquake and volcanic eruption traps the cave dwellers, the river people come to their rescue. The two men try to figure a way to return to earth with the women they have fallen in love with.

Product Description:

In this sci-fi fantasy, based on a Jules Verne story, two 18th-century men are preparing for a duel when they find themselves caught in the tremendous tailwind of a passing comet. They get sucked onto the comet's head where they find a strange world inhabited by dinosaurs and cave men. The rivals are forced to split up. When they see each other again, each has become the leader of rival cave-man clans during a war. Peace is restored when the heroes each fall for a woman belonging to the other's clan.

Rating 3.5 The Valley of the Dragons Movie Lover: from PLANO, TX US -- September, 2, 2014

In 1881 Algeria, a French officer (Cesare Donova) and an Irish adventurer (Sean McCory) are about to fight a duel over a woman. Suddenly, a great wind commences putting an abrupt end to the contest. The two antagonists find themselves in a strange land, and decide they must temporarily cooperate in order to survive. They eventually discover that they are no longer on earth but on a comet inhabited by Neanderthals, prehistoric beasts and primitive people. Apparently the comet also brushed earth thousands of years earlier explaining the terrestrial life.
The movie makes extensive use of file footage from other movies. I recognized Rodan making a cameo appearance. So much of the film footage is taken from the 1940 movie One Million B. C. that plot elements of that picture also had to be adopted. Those familiar with that picture (and the 1966 remake One Million Years B. C.) will recognize the rock tribe and the shell tribe. The “dragons” are mostly lizards and baby alligators.
I am impressed how cleverly the film was edited. The story is consistent despite its adoption of so much footage from One Million B. C. The Valley of the Dragons is worth a viewing.
