Did You Know?

For this film, "Dynamation"--the name of 'Ray Harryhausen' (qb)'s stop-motion effects technique--was rebranded "Super-Dynamation". Only one other Harryhausen film has this brand: his subsequent film, Mysterious Island (1961).See more »
Continuity: When Gulliver begins uprooting trees for the Lilliputians, they are normal with green leaves at the top, but when he replants them they look like shrubs without any leaves.See more »

From the same production stable as "THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD",this movie is not quite in the same class as the latter but remains a highly enjoyable piece.A very much watered down version of part of "GULLIVER'S TRAVELS" the film benefits not just from typically superb Harryhausen effects but also from a fabulous score from Bernard Herrmann (one of his very best and sadly neglected)and a performance from Kerwin Mathews as Gulliver that displays the usual integrity displayed by this pleasing actor. The leading female role is attractively played by a very pretty British actress of the period,June Thorburn who fantasy fans may remember from "TOM THUMB".Although it is not as well known or as revived as often as "SINBAD" or " JASON" it is hard to imagine anyone being disappointed by this "GULLIVER" which is far more fun than the Ted Danson version of the mid 90's.
