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. The name was coined by producer Charles H. Schneer, who decided that he and Ray needed a gimmick to sell this technique, and distinguish the model animation technique from cartoon animation (which was not taken seriously, even back in the day). Schneer got the inspiration from a car he owned, a Buick (which he rode along Sunset Boulevard to the studio each morning), with the name "DynaFlow" printed on the car's wheel, and was so impressed that he wanted a name similar to this, but dropped "flow" and added "mation" (from "animation"). This new brand was heavily promoted, especially 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 of Schneer & Harryhausen's 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 »

Astonishing in my youth!
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the nice things about being a little older is that I can remember the first time I saw movies like this and not think of them as schmaltzy or tacky. They were the state of the art in special effects (thanks to the likes of Ray Harreyhausen) and they were absolutely captivating. With computer generated creatures, we have gone so far beyond these things, but when I go to a Harry Potter movie or a Lord of the Rings movie (wonderful films), I look at the faces of the kids. There seems to be no wonderment at all. We have been fed such a constant diet that we don't look beyond the magic. This is a great story with wizards and heroes and mythical monsters and skeletons fighting. I know the Sinbad stories from the Arabian Nights and there is a lot of borrowing from every avenue of folklore and mythology. They really don't follow the book. But when I was in seventh grade, I couldn't care less. This is a quest and they made the getting there a real treat.
