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

Alternate Versions

To receive the original 'A' certificate in 1958 and then a 'U' certificate in 1962 the original UK cinema release was heavily cut by the BBFC who completely removed the skeleton fight, as well as making edits to the man roasting on a spit, the dancing snake woman, close-up shots of the Cyclops, and scenes of minor violence including fighting and shots of dead bodies. All later video releases were restored and uncut. See more »

"Your eyes are mightier than all your father's armies."

When Sinbad (Kerwin Mathews) refuses to help the sorcerer Sokurah (Torin Thatcher) retrieve his magic lamp from a Cyclops, Sokurah shrinks Sinbad's love Princess Parisa (Kathryn Grant) to the size of a doll. The potion to restore her to her natural size requires the shell of a bird's egg from the island of Colossa where the Cyclops lives. Now Sinbad has no choice but to journey to Colossa and face the monster to save his lady.

Fantasy adventure classic from director Nathan Juran and featuring the awesome stop-motion special effects from legendary Ray Harryhausen. Torin Thatcher is great as the nefarious wizard. Child actor Richard Eyer as the genie in the lamp is goofy but amusing. The leads are both fine. It's the special effects that are the real star with the justifiably famous climactic battle between Sinbad and a skeleton warrior a highlight.
