The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad
Classic fantasy movie --- Saw it when I was a kid on the BIG SCREEN, loved it then and still do. I got my grandson to watch it ,now hes a fan, also Jason and the Argonauts. I only have one ( ouch) complaint and I can still bite the bullet and enjoy this great movie and that is, the Genie. I think they should have got someone else for the part. The boy although sincere enough, seemed out of place. He would have been better in a modern day mystery film example. New York, Chicago, city kid stuff mystery.
Another favorite film from Ray Harryhausen
- Julia Arsenault
Another favorite film from special-effects wizard Ray Harryhausen (I only have four favorites), and also another princess to add to my list of my favorite movie princesses - The Princess Parisa (as I said, it might seem strange to you folks but... that's me). Also, as I said before, I'm starting to love fantasy movies (animated or live action) set in Arabia. I would like to point out and inside-joke I have found in the film : The villain, the magician Sokurah almost sounds like "Sakura" which is Japanese for "cherry-blossom."In the film, Kerwin Matthews stars as the legendary sailor. To save Princess Parisa (who has been shrunk down to the size of a thumb) from the evil Sakourah (Torin Thatcher), Sinbad must battle several fabulous monsters,to get piece of a Roc's egg shell to restore Parisa to normal size; and with a little help from the genie of the lamp, Bronni (thought the magic lamp is from the story of Aladdin, and also I have read the original adventures of Sinbad). The monsters include a cyclops, and a dragon. He also fences against an animated skeleton. The dragon died, Sinbad rescued his princess. Anything else I would like to say about this film, is that it is an excellent film, with thrilling action/adventure,romance and wonderful music too.
Ray Harryhausen's Classic Epic Fantasy Film !
Truly one if not the Greatest stop-action fantasy films ever made ! Kerwin Matheews stars as Capt. Sinbad, in search of the eggshell of the Roc, to restore Princess Parisa( Kathryn Grayson), who was bewithed by the evil Sohkura(Torin Thatcher). They must travel to the island of Colassa, where they must overcome the One-eyed Cyclops, and many other evils! A story for the ages with the incomparable music score of Bernard Herrmann, which was a best-seller of its own! This film is a 10 ! Available in Blu-ray and DVD, but , prefer the Blu-ray....
A Classic for Lifes Significance
I was fortunate to view this adventure at the age of 7 yrs. (1965) and it opened my mind to what could only be described as ... "Life is a course that you "must" control, and not be led along by!"(I retired at 44 yrs. of age.) I encouraged both of my Granddaughters to view this masterpiece, which they have more than once I might add, and to understand the powerful meaning it had to me. At 11 & 8 yrs, of age.. both understand its "significance" as I understood it 43 yrs. ago. Thanks
The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958)
The ability to have my grandson who is five years old be able to see this movie was great it was awesome to him. Can you advise me as to when this movie will be played again or where I can obtain it on dvd? Thanks.
