Storyline

While sailing with Princess Parisa to Baghdad to their wedding, Sinbad finds the Colossa Island and anchors his vessel to get supplies for the starving crew. Sinbad and his men help the magician Sokurah to escape from a Cyclops that attacks them, and Sokurah uses a magic lamp with a boy jinni to help them; however, their boat sinks and he loses the lamp. Sokurah offers a small fortune to Sinbad to return to Colossa, but he does not accept and heads to Baghdad. The citizens and the Caliph of Baghdad are celebrating the peace with Chandra, and they offer a feast to the Sultan of Chandra. Sakurah requests a ship and crew to return to Colossa but the Caliph refuses to jeopardize his countrymen. However, the treacherous magician shrinks the princess and when the desperate Sinbad seeks him out, he tells that he needs to return to Colossa to get the ingredient necessary for the magic potion. But Sinbad has only his friend Harufa to travel with him, and he decides to enlist a doubtful crew in... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

"Dynamation" (a portmanteau of "dynamic animation") the name of the visual effects technique created by Ray Harryhausen, was introduced for this film. It was also heavily promoted in the film's original 1958 "This is Dynamation" theatrical trailer, and billed as "The New Miracle of the Screen" in the opening credits. The "Dynamation" process would also go by different names in some later films: "SuperDynamation" for The 3 Worlds of Gulliver (1960) and Mysterious Island (1961), and as of The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973), "Dynarama". Ironically, the 1975 reissue of this film (re-released to capitalize on the success of "Golden Voyage") bills the process as "Dynarama" rather than "Dynamation". See more »

Goofs

A different man grabs the king cobra. Sokurah reaches into the basket to pick up the cobra during his magic act. A switch to closeup shows a man with different sleeves, and three-to-four closeup frames show a hairy-headed man. Sokurah the magician is completely bald. When Sokura throws the serpent into the jar, it is blue-colored, not brown. (This is not a problem in the correctly framed 1.85:1 theatrical aspect ratio, only the full frame version.) See more »

If you have forgotten what being a child was like, watch this and unlock some of that magic.
2 June 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Arguably, Harryhausen's finest moment. I can't off the top of my head nominate one that was better! It had it all, adventure, fantasy, heroics, monsters, and Harryhausen's stop-frame wizardry that puts half the CGI effects right out of business.

I too, saw it as a child and along with JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD and CLASH OF THE TITANS, bought it years later and played it to standing room only, in our lounge throughout the kids childhood. Lucky aren't they?

The cyclops was the ultimate magic and I only wish my children could have seen the original theatrical screening with which television cannot compete. The film is still there but the sense of impending wonder (sitting there in a blackened theater) cannot be replicated on the small screen.

What a legacy to leave the world!
