Goofs:
Continuity: The exterior shot of Sinbad's ship is obviously of a completely different ship before they reach the island the first time and when they leave. The first time we see it coming up on the island, it has only one large triangular sail as was common with medieval Mediterranean vessels. Then when it leave the island it's a 16th century galleon with three square sails on three separate masts.See more »

One of Harryhausen's finest, 2 October 2002
Author: Chris Gaskin from Derby, England

Most people have movies that they remember watching when they were infants and never forget them. This is one of mine, along with King Kong (1933) and One Million Years BC.

The stars of this movie are of course Ray's stop-motion monsters. We get to see several cyclops, a dragon, a giant roc, a baby roc, a snake woman and, best of all, a skeleton.

The movie's cast includes Kerwin Mathews as Sinbad and Torin Thatcher as the mad magician, Sokurah. These play great parts, as does Richard Eyer as the Genie. The theme music and score by Bernard Herrmann is magnificent. The movie was directed by Nathan Juran (The Deadly Mantis).

This is the best of Harryhausen's Sinbad movies and one of his best movies overall, along with Jason and the Argonauts.

If you haven't seen this, you are missing out. Fantastic.

Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
