In order to placate the angry gods, who have allowed Thessaly to be overrun with barbarian invaders and beset with natural disasters, King Jason takes his Argonauts on a search for the fabled Golden Fleece. Meanwhile, back at home, his scheming regent is plotting to get his hands on the kingdom--and the queen.Written by
Set in 1250 B.C. when Jason was already away seeking the Golden Fleece; as usual there's far more male flesh on display than female (which is why 'Films and Filming' were so fond of these movies at the time!) and also as usual there's far more emphasis on making war than love (despite the incredible line that "The stars are truly the most beautiful thing that God has bestowed upon men. They remind us that true love is eternal..."). Ziva Rodann is hardly in it other than to bear Jason a son and be lusted after by the wicked King in Jason's absence; and the hottest chick in the film has to be Cathia Caro as a princess identified as Aglaia in the cast list but addressed throughout the film as 'Atalanta'.
The scene with the Cyclops is a highlight; Jason's climb up an enormous statue to retrieve the Golden Fleece a straight lift from Sabu scaling a similar statue to obtain the All-Seeing Eye twenty years earlier in 'The Thief of Bagdad'.
