Release Message: An experimental aviator and a cryogenicist survive a crash landing in Siberia, find the body of a caveman in a glacier wall, and attempt to revive the man. Written by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Description: An unfrozen 50,000-year-old caveman and his politically incorrect views. Burroughs uses the story to air what are presumably some of his own politics. An experimental aviator and a cryogenicist, who are flying over Siberia, are forced to land after an airplane mechanical failure. They survive the landing, and happen to find the body of a caveman, frozen into a newly uncovered glacier wall. Jokingly, the aviator suggests that the cryogenicist attempt to revive the man, which he proceeds to do, using transfusions and injections of drugs. The caveman proves to be intelligent, and immensely strong. His name is Kolani and he soon learns enough English to communicate. Returned to America, he is given the stage name of Jim Stone, after he proves to be a professional wrestling sensation who throws all contenders over the ropes, and into the crowd. Stone/Kolani eventually falls in love with a popular movie actress, who as it happens is a look-alike for his intended mate of long ago. In negotiating the ways of the new society of the 20th century, however, Kolani gives the opinion that modern women now act in nearly all ways like men, and he doesn't approve of any of it. After finding the actress, whom he has been romancing, with another man, he deliberately re-freezes himself in a meat locker, with a note that he is seeking his real mate, and not to thaw him out again.
