Storyline

While sailing with Princess Parisa to Baghdad to their wedding, Sinbad finds the Colossa Island and anchors his vessel to get supplies for the starving crew. Sinbad and his men help the magician Sokurah to escape from a Cyclops that attacks them, and Sokurah uses a magic lamp with a boy jinni to help them; however, their boat sinks and he loses the lamp. Sokurah offers a small fortune to Sinbad to return to Colossa, but he does not accept and heads to Baghdad. The citizens and the Caliph of Baghdad are celebrating the peace with Chandra, and they offer a feast to the Sultan of Chandra. Sakurah requests a ship and crew to return to Colossa but the Caliph refuses to jeopardize his countrymen. However, the treacherous magician shrinks the princess and when the desperate Sinbad seeks him out, he tells that he needs to return to Colossa to get the ingredient necessary for the magic potion. But Sinbad has only his friend Harufa to travel with him, and he decides to enlist a doubtful crew in... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

A soundtrack album of Bernard Herrmann's score was released on Colpix, Columbia's record label. In later years it would become one of the most sought-after albums by soundtrack collectors. It was finally released on CD, along with the full score, in 2009. See more »

Goofs

As the crew arrives on the island, they see a wooden cage with a skeleton hanging inside. In reality, the bones would fall apart as the body dried out. In the scene, the wires holding the bones together are clearly seen. See more »

Alternate Versions

There were, in fact, actually four 8mm reels released (which could be purchased in color or black & white, sound or silent), serializing the feature. This digest, when the reels were combined, runs about 36-40 minutes, depending on whether you were using the silent or sound versions. A well-edited condensation of the feature film. (The four reels were 1. "The Cyclops," 2. "The Strange Voyage," 3. "The Evil Magician" and 4. "The Dragon's Lair.") See more »

User Reviews

If you have forgotten what being a child was like, watch this and unlock some of that magic.
2 June 2002 | by uds3See all my reviews

Arguably, Harryhausen's finest moment. I can't off the top of my head nominate one that was better! It had it all, adventure, fantasy, heroics, monsters, and Harryhausen's stop-frame wizardry that puts half the CGI effects right out of business.

I too, saw it as a child and along with JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD and CLASH OF THE TITANS, bought it years later and played it to standing room only, in our lounge throughout the kids childhood. Lucky aren't they?

The cyclops was the ultimate magic and I only wish my children could have seen the original theatrical screening with which television cannot compete. The film is still there but the sense of impending wonder (sitting there in a blackened theater) cannot be replicated on the small screen.

What a legacy to leave the world!
