Storyline

The peaceful kingdom of Baristan has an evil ruler named El-Carim. He plans to capture his rival, Sindbad, who will soon return from sea in order to marry Princess Jana. The Princess convinces the magician Galgo to turn her into a small bird, so that she may fly off to warn Sinbad of the trap set against him. She flies off just as Galgo is discovered by the guards, who take him to El-Carim. As Sindbad and his crew sail towards Baristan, the Princess-Firebird descends and lands on the ship. But before she can deliver the message, El-Carim transforms the guards into giant human falcons, to drop rocks onto Sindbad's ship sinking it. However, Sindbad and some of his crew have survived, and they carefully make their way to shore. Galgo makes his arm stretch out to an enormous length, long enough to grab El-Carim's magic ring, but the evil king wakes up in time to burn Galgo's hand. Sindbad manages to get arrested, and soon appears before the dictator as a petty thief. El-Carim is not ...

As a kid

Saw this on TV in the 1960s. So I was 10 or younger. Here's what I remember. Sindbad asking one of his mates for use of his hook hand to climb the big (tree trunk size) up rope into the mist. My thoughts: "Lucky the guy carries spares, and how does a hook for an amputee fit into Sindbad's good hand? Now he's climbing up - how far? They can't see the top. Looks like miles. That's pretty risky, betting you're not going to slip or get tired on the way up. Not safe." When carnivorous vines reach down and grab one of Sindband's sailors when going through the swamp: "How horrible! Did you hear him scream?! Wow, Sindbad is sure writing him off quick. They're just walking away. Guess life and death are like that. Out of sight, out of mind." Lastly, when the big bad guy's (separately located) heart is destroyed, it sure looked like he made an effort to stagger over to the railing and climb over it in order to make a dramatic fall to his death. I thought, gee - if he has that much still in him, why doesn't he kill Sindbad or the girl or someone with his last moment? Whatever, seared into my brain for almost fifty years. Can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, though.
