Trivia

At $3.5 million - a drop in the bucket by today's movie budgets - this film was the costliest of the Ray Harryhausen Sinbad trilogy (and the second costliest Harryhausen film in general, behind his next and last film, Clash of the Titans (1981), which cost $15 million). See more »

Goofs

Quotes

[first lines]
Hassan: Come on! Come on, come on, boys. Hey, captain, why the haste? The city will not vanish.
Aboo-Seer: It's not the city of Charak he wishes to see, but someone who dwells within.
Sinbad: After a long voyage, it is good to stretch one's legs.
Hassan: The only good thing about this port is the inn of Abu Jamil the Squint, who, for six months, I have been dreaming of his roasted sheep's eyes.
Aboo-Seer: And I the eyes of his daughter.
Sinbad: You were dreaming of more than her eyes.

Really cheesy but lots of fun
7 February 1999 | by MartaSee all my reviews

This is one of my guilty pleasures; everyone makes fun of me because I love this movie. Ray Harryhausen has been panned over this film, but I think he did a fantastic job. It's inventive and eye-catching, and the Minoton is a marvel.

Patrick Wayne is strong-jawed and stalwart as Sinbad, but Jane Seymour, as the princess, obviously hadn't done much acting yet when she made this film. She's really bad in the role of Sinbad's love interest. She beat Bo Derek by 4 years in starting the cornrow hairstyle, and most of her hairdos in this movie are more interesting than her acting. The biggest hoot in the movie is Margaret Whiting as the evil Queen. She's got an accent that won't quit, but as the film goes on that accent begins to fascinate the viewer; she's a really good actress, which surprised me. Even when she turns herself into a seagull.

It's the outlandish creatures, scenes, and settings that a Harryhausen movie always has that are its great charms, and this film is one of the most inventive of his career. Don't expect rocket science when you watch this, just expect to be royally entertained. The new Twilight Time Blu-ray release (December 2013) of the film is a wonder and highly recommended, but hurry and order it today...there are only 3,000 copies available.
