An uncredited Peter Mayhew is the live suit actor stand-in for the stop-motion Minaton (the bronze mechanical minotaur), whose name is a portmanteau of "minotaur" and "automaton". Before filming, Mayhew was working as a hospital attendant at King's College Hospital in London. Producer Charles H. Schneer saw Mayhew's photo, in which he was literally standing above the crowd around him. Filmed in 1975, this was Mayhew's very first role, right before playing his more famous role of Chewbacca in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), filmed in 1976. Both films were released in 1977 (but ironically, "Star Wars" was released three months ahead of "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger"). See more »

When I saw this in the theater as a 7 or 8 year old kid, I cried when it finished. It was by far the most captivating movie I had ever seen. I liked it better than Star Wars. The unbelievable stop-motion effects of Harryhausen still look great, even when compared to CGI. Things have not improved much. And Jane Seymore in the belly-dancer outfit! Good Lord! You must see this movie to believe it! The gold minotaur rowing the boat and the fight between the troglodyte and the saber-toothed tiger at the end stand out in my mind so strongly when I think of this movie.Get a copy of this movie, Jason and the Argonauts, and then Clash of the Titans and you have a fantastic Saturday afternoon of movie watching.
