In The Big Trail, released in 1930, Patrick Wayne's father, John, starred with Taryn Power's grandfather...the second Tyrone Power. Taryn's father was actually the third Tyrone Power. See more »
When the group go off in their boat, there is a view of a waxing crescent Moon, i.e. about 3 days after New Moon. We then see the Moon at First Quarter, which is 7 days after New Moon, and a couple of minutes later a view out of the entrance of the ice cavern shown the Moon as a waxing crescent again. See more »

Excellent third and final Sinbad movie from Ray Harryhausen
Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger was the third and final Sinbad movie with Ray Harryhausen creatures.
In this one, a prince is turned into a stop-motion baboon and Sinbad and crew go on an expedition to Ademaspai to restore him back to human form. They face plenty of dangers on the way including several giant creatures, some of them prehistoric (more on those later). He is being followed by an evil witch with magic powers, Zenobia, along with her son and a stop-motion metal creature, Minoton. On one occasion, she turns herself into a seagull to spy on Sinbad and on return to her ship as she transforms back, she is left with a webbed foot as she has ran out of potion. She is defeated at the end in the form of a Sabre-toothed Tiger and the prince is restored back to human form.
Now to those creatures: we start with a trio of ghouls and other creatures include a giant wasp, a giant walrus, a Troglodite and the above mentioned Sabre-toothed tiger. The other two stop-motion creatures, Minoton and the baboon appear throughout the movie. All of them look impressive, thanks to Ray Harryhausen.
Sinbad is played well by the Duke's son Patrick Wayne (The People That Time Forgot) and the rest of the cast includes Dr Who actor Patrick Troughton, Bond girl Jane Seymour (Live and Let Die), Taryn Power, Margaret Whiting as Zenobi and Nadim Sawalha.
Though not as good as the first Sinbad movie, The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, I still enjoyed watching this one. Excellent.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
