Looks like a scene from '1,000,000 Years BC'. Where's the photo of the young Raquel Welch in her cavegirl outfit?

Looks like the middle of "Journey To The Center of The Earth" or the end of a "Godzilla" movie where Godzilla lost. Or a rope bridge from Swiss Family Robinson vs the Giant Lizzard Island......BWWWWWaaaaaaaaaa HAAAAAAA Haaaaaaaaa!
