Trivia An uncredited Peter Mayhew is the live suit actor stand-in for the stop-motion Minaton (the bronze mechanical minotaur), whose name is a portmanteau of "minotaur" and "automaton". Before filming, Mayhew was working as a hospital attendant at King's College Hospital in London. Producer Charles H. Schneer saw Mayhew's photo, in which he was literally standing above the crowd around him. Filmed in 1975, this was Mayhew's very first role, right before playing his more famous role of Chewbacca in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), filmed in 1976. Both films were released in 1977 (but ironically, "Star Wars" was released three months ahead of "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger"). See more »
Goofs When Zenobia's son is killed and she goes down the steps to see him at the end of the film, you clearly see she is wearing two shoes and no longer has the bird's claw on her right foot. See more »

Crazy Credits The end credits scroll over the crowning ceremony of Prince Kassim. After the credits have scrolled up, we see a shot of brazier of coals. Suddenly, two cat eyes belonging to Zenobia appear. See more »
