We spotted this computer generated cavegirl when she appeared in an online advertisement on a website we were looking at. She exists to publicise one of those online world builder type strategy games which young people waste so much of their lives on. We like her outfit and would happily pick berries with her in her prehistoric world.

There is a lot of cavegirl comic book style art out there but we don't feature it that much because most of it isn't very good. However, we were tickled by Frank Cho's take on the classic Coppertone girl. His girl has a very un-Stone Age sword as she suffers at the jaws of a couple of small dinosaurs. So she is either a Lost World cavegirl or a time travelling one.
His picture is, of course, a pastiche of Joyce Ballantyne's classic advertisement for Coppertone from 1959,for which she used her three year old daughter, Cheri, as the model.
Since it originally came out the picture has been parodied many times, including this fine version featuring Carmen Elektra for the cover of Esquire.

Here is an unusual example of a cavegirl from Harrison Marks' 1970 film The Nine Ages of Nakedness. The actress at the stone age typwriter is the utterly gorgeous Maj-Britt Manson.
We would guess that she is Swedish, by her name, but have been unable to find anything else about her other than this one picture of her in a rubber boat.

Here we have model Micky De Rauch who played First Shell Girl in Hammer Film's One Million Years BC (1966). More importantly she was also Raquel Welch's body double so had to don her own version of the famous fur bikini. Hers was the body filmed in most of the more active stunts but she later recalled that she only had the one costume so that after three weeks shooting it was "pretty dirty and smelly".
Being a body double for Raquel Welch must have been something of an intimidating role but we can see that she looks very fine indeed, with a nice trim waist and a splendid stomach. She admitted to putting socks into her top as she couldn't compete with the Welch bust.
Things were going well between the twenty year old English model and Welch until the star was off sick one day in Lanzarote, where the exterior scenes were filmed in the prehistoric, volcanic landscape. Welch not being there some Spanish reporters, visiting the set, took pictures of De Rauch, who happily posed for them, and published them with Welch's name attached to them.
Welch and her manager were furious and De Rauch said that the film's director advised her to take an extended holiday and that Welch subsequently cut her dead at the film premiere. For her part she felt that Welch wasn't that attractive and her voice had a "Southern whine". Should have had an in costume cat fight to sort it out, ladies.

A Happy Christmas (or whatever your equivalent may be) to all our readers. We really appreciate those who come by and, especially, those who take the time to comment.
Our Christmas cavegirl is Edina Ronay from Hammer Film's Prehistoric Women (1967). More on this in the New Year.

We are conscious that we haven't posted anything for some time although are working on a couple of posts which should be ready by Christmas. In the meantime we came across another Playboy cartoon cavegirl. This time from March 1978. No fur bikini on this one though...
