The 7th Voyage of Sinbad
Directed by Nathan Juran • 1958 • United States
Starring Kerwin Mathews, Torin Thatcher, Kathryn Grant
The eye-popping special effects of stop-motion-animation wizard Ray Harryhausen dazzle and delight in this spectacular adventure fantasy. After a conniving sorcerer shrinks his fiancée (Kathryn Grant) to the size of a thumb, the heroic Sinbad (Kerwin Mathews) must travel to the mythical island of Colossa—where a towering cyclops, a sword-swinging skeleton, and the enormous two-headed bird known as the Roc dwell—to find the secret that will return his beloved to her real size. Shot in glorious widescreen Technicolor and featuring a stirring score by the great Bernard Herrmann, THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD is the magical stuff of childhood nostalgia for older generations and a captivating discovery for young movie lovers.
