No, the director of Yor was not Bruno Mattei. He had nothing to do with the film at all. Anthony Dawson is a pseudonym for Antonio Margheriti.

The movie is a blend of fantasy and science-fiction. The first half of the film is pure caveman fantasy while the plot gradually develops into sci-fi. It's a cult film that you'll either love or hate. It just 80's Italian cheese at it's core.

It was indeed originally conceived as a 4-hour TV version, which apparently exists in Italy (Italian language only), though few have ever seen it.
