THE NEANDERTHAL MAN (1953)
So this mad scientist guy cooks up a formula that sends animals and people back to their prehistoric forms. He's trying to prove how similar our current brains are to our ancestors or something like that. There's what's supposed to be a sabre-toothed tiger, portrayed by a regular modern day tiger, running around and a guy with a pretty awful rubber-mask playing the titular neanderthal man. This whole movie is pretty dumb but there is one part where these two "monsters" fight each other which probably sucked for whoever was under that mask. Also there's blood at the very end of the movie on a guy's shirt which is pretty rare to see in a 50's American horror movie.
Neanderthal Man hates a picnic:
