In circa-1900 Mexico, T.J. Breckenridge, a beautiful cowgirl, owns a struggling wild west show. Her former boyfriend Tuck Kirby is working for Buffalo Bill's wild west show, and wants to buy her out, but T.J. has an ace that she hopes will boost attendance at her show - a tiny horse. The tiny horse, however, comes from The Forbidden Valley and a convoy of gypsies demands the tiny horse be returned to the valley; the horse's genesis is also known to a British paleontologist, Sir Horace Bromley, working in the nearby desert. T.J., her men, and Tuck eventually find The Forbidden Valley with Bromley, and encounter a litany of living dinosaurs. One, a belligerent Allosaurus, is known as Gwangi by the gypsies, and a running pursuit sidetracks into a bloody battle with a styracosaur and eventually to terror in the nearby town. ~ by Michael Daly
