Trivia

This is the second Sinbad film to have an actor who's played Doctor Who. But while Patrick Troughton was the Doctor before his appearance in this film, Tom Baker appeared in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973) right before becoming the Doctor. Troughton also appeared in another Harryhausen film prior to this one, as Phineas the blind man in Jason and the Argonauts (1963). See more »

Goofs

During the time that Zenobia transformed herself into the seagull, the locket is visible with the magic elixir around the seagull's neck, but when the seagull is in flight, the locket is nowhere to be found. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Hassan: Come on! Come on, come on, boys. Hey, captain, why the haste? The city will not vanish.
Aboo-Seer: It's not the city of Charak he wishes to see, but someone who dwells within.
Sinbad: After a long voyage, it is good to stretch one's legs.
Hassan: The only good thing about this port is the inn of Abu Jamil the Squint, who, for six months, I have been dreaming of his roasted sheep's eyes.
Aboo-Seer: And I the eyes of his daughter.
Sinbad: You were dreaming of more than her eyes.

A weak Sinbad, but still a first-rate tale.
30 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

A film with animation by Ray Harryhausen. It's a pity he couldn't have animated Patrick Wayne, who's bland performance means he comes across as the least interesting Sinbad. It is Patrick Troughton's excellently enigmatic Melanthius and Margaret Whiting's icy Zenobia who are the real stars of this show.

Sinbad travels to find a way to break the spell which has turned a prince into a baboon, but Zenobia, who has plans to ensure her son is crowned king in the prince's place, calls upon the help of various mythical creatures. The minotaur is by far the best of these and ought to have faced Sinbad and his crew rather than just being crushed in an ignoble exit. Other memorable creatures include a giant walrus, insectoid-faced demons and a sabre-toothed cat. Though the central character of the title is somewhat lacking, this is still first-rate entertainment and genuine escapism, two things somewhat lacking in more recent films.
