Storyline

Sinbad and his crew intercept a homunculus carrying a golden tablet. Koura, the creator of the homunculus and practitioner of evil magic, wants the tablet back and pursues Sinbad. Meanwhile Sinbad meets the Vizier who has another part of the interlocking golden map, and they mount a quest across the seas to solve the riddle of the map, accompanied by a slave girl with a mysterious tattoo of an eye on her palm. They encounter strange beasts, tempests, and the dark interference of Koura along the way. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Trivia

Miklós Rózsa was one of Ray Harryhausen's original choices to score The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958), but Charles H. Schneer persuaded Harryhausen to agree to hire Bernard Herrmann instead. Herrmann ended up scoring four of Schneer and Harryhausen's films, but he was not available for this one, so Harryhausen finally got his wish to have Rózsa score a Sinbad movie. See more »

Goofs

When the figurehead falls backward off the boat, it is holding an iron harpoon. When it hits the water, the harpoon disappears, then re-appears when the figurehead is shown on the bottom of the ocean. See more »

Alternate Versions

At 0:49:27 on the VHS version (PAL time) (and presumably on the original release print) you can see when Sinbad is helping Margiana from the boat to the sand on the beach, for a couple of seconds and by mere accident, Caroline Munro's nipple. On the DVD it's been covered by a digital addition to her hair. See more »

It's a kid's adventure movie with imaginative animation
24 November 2004 | by BarbecueSee all my reviews

Ignore pointless comparisons about how it pales in comparison to Lord of the Rings. This isn't Lord of the Rings, nor is it Citizen Kane. Why some fools insist that every movie must be measured by the yardstick of their own personal favorite I will never understand.

If you're so spoiled by state-of-the-art computer graphics where each creature has an entire team of people working on it, and can't appreciate the human creativity and craftsmanship of great stop-motion animation, don't waste your time on this movie, go watch the latest Pixar release.

Harryhausen's work is remarkable not because it's the most realistic animation ever, but because he was able to achieve remarkable things with sculpture and movement on a budget comparable to today's 30 second ad spots.

Tom Baker steals the movie. He's terrific as the evil sorcerer, villainous but with enough humanity to his character to make him at least somewhat sympathetic.
